Thanks,
Totally dependent on your dealer's allocation, could be as quick as 5 weeks could be up to 3 months. You have to ask them what their inventory looks like so you can get a better idea.

How long is an order taking to get a blue candy 5 dr titanium focus fully loaded. If I order now what is the estimate of arrival for most cars being ordered in your dealership? I was charged 25,000 through true car.com for my focus without navigation. Some dealers told me since I have that quote from true car they have to honor it. Is this a good deal? What are the deals going on for June?

Candy blue titanium
Parking assist
Moon roof

Truecar is through ZAG, most dealers quote invoice or $150 below or above. Just depends on your dealer allocation, probably 8 weeks.

With Truecar, and many other buying services, dealer makes money through the high fees. I used truecar, and even with all the dealer's high fees ($898), I'm looking at around x-plan price (including admin+Doc) or $27125 before rebates, TTL for what's in my sig.

I was only charged $150 for doc fee and I used truecar.com. I was given $300 below invoice.... not haggling necessary. :)

They make money on the holdback and the hope you'll bring your car in for service.

Maybe $200 if they charged $300 under invoice.

It was strange bc the the true car certificate only said $150 under invoice and the Internet guy gave me 300 below without me saying a thing.

Right, mine was $425 below invoice (invoice that includes FDAF), but I had to press to get all the fees. Just make sure if you haven't done so already get that final out the door price in writing, even if it's just in email. They notoriously like to downplay and ignore some even exist until contract time if hasn't previously been discussed in depth.
