Your regional market also has some influence on your final price, because getting $500 off in one place may be like getting $1000 in another. It's all relative!

Double check your VIN and so we can help ya out.

I think that's the correct VIN#. It was an SEL not a Titanium but it had every conceivable option except perhaps the self parking. Like I said, it's been a while since I've bought a car but it seemed like I was being asked to pretty much pay sticker price and my dad always told me only people with money to throw away do that.

Thanks for the reply!

New cars come with 2 keys (integrated fobs on select models) and owner's manual with full tank of gas.

Thanks again buddy!

FIN is only for companies that order large quantities through Ford, not for individual purchases.

Sounds like all they are giving you is the $500 FMC rebate and no discount. I would try for $500 over invoice if they are holding to that price or try another dealer. If you aren't in a hurry order one from a dealer that will be more aggressive even if it means going further from home.

Is the $500 technology rebate (for pre-orders) compatible with the $750 private cash offer from the mailed brochure?

I went to the dealer on Saturday and he successfully put both in the computer. Now he's out of town and another salesmen says per his GSM, they are not compatible.

I would need last name, ZIP and prefer VIN as well to see. I'm about 80% certain they do but probably not the $500 FMC plus tech plus private.

I was informed that no more Kona Blue cars will be built this year and I need to select another color. Is this correct? The dealer blamed the same paint supplier situation that caused the Tuxedo Black and Red to be discontinued.

That is the correct reason.

Currently here is the replacement plan as of 4-21:
Kona Blue replaced by Sonic Blue in late June
Red Candy replaced by "Red Candy" in late June
Tuxedo Black replaced by Black in late June.

All colors above are slated to run out within the next week if they haven't run out already. I had an Edge cancelled today which wasn't suppose to run out til early June.

So........

@imccrea

So....if you place an order today for Red candy, will the order be fufilled for the new paint color or will the order be cancelled. I want to place an order tomorrow (tuesday) and I'm not sure what to do. I don't want my order to be cancelled.

Well on Focus I'm sure it just would take 2 months before it gets scheduled to build. The only way to find out is put the order in and see what happens. It might get canceled or just delayed.
