Invoice is showing as 22942 on Edmunds.com. If you are paying about $400 for a doc fee it sounds about right. Have you tried requesting the brochure on ford.com to see if you get the $750 Private Cash Rebate offer? You can also get another $500 rebate if you finance through Ford Credit. You might want to find out if your employer qualifies for supplier pricing. It could probably save you a few hundred more. You can also qualify for supplier pricing if you join the Experimental Aircraft Association for $40 a year. (eaa.com). I did all that and ended up paying about what you were quoted with another $1800 in equipment. This is about the time I say thanks again Ira.

I am not factoring any rebates in there. I already have a coupon, but it is going to expire by the time it comes in so I ordered another brochure. I also qualify for the $500 College Grad discount.

Here is another question that I'm not sure you're going to be able to answer. I am buying the car in Lake County IL but will be registering it in Cook County, which has a higher tax rate. The dealer told me that I will pay the 7% Lake tax and then the 0.75% extra for Cook on top of that. I'm hearing now that I'll get a second tax bill from Cook later. Does that mean I'd be paying taxes twice?

What I Drive: 2012 Ford Focus Hatchback SEL

I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way to get a new Focus Hatchback SEL. Every dealership around me no inventory in them.

I sent an e-mail blast from Edmunds but so far all I seem to have gotten is like 2 e-mails from every dealership and their internet salespeople that is an automated reply. I'm hesitant to go in and tell them what I want because I'm sure they will try a bunch of high pressure tactics when I go in and already knowing exactly what I want and they have to "special order" it.

What's the best way to go about getting one? All I want is the SEL hatcback with the 302 package in Silver or Grey in zip 33436. I'm a recent college grad and want to trade in my clunker as well.

Thanks!

Sorry if this is redundant, but I know blue candy and tuxedo black are gone. Is it the same for red candy? I've seen some who say they ordered it and some who were told unavailable.

Red Candy is also currently unavailable to order. The paint pigments were from the same factory in Japan causing issues with Kona Blue and Tuxedo Black. It is scheduled to be available for ordering again around the end of the month, but you probably wouldn't get a production date until well into July. Even that is assuming there are no more delays. I really liked that color, but I couldn't deal with the wait and the uncertainty.

Order one and be prepared to wait 6-8 weeks. Welcome to the club. Mine is finally getting built a week from tomorrow and I'm really getting excited. It seems just about everyone on here with a Titanium had to order it. The SEL's are a little easier to find around here, but not with the equipment I wanted. If you want an SE they are fairly plentiful. Ford clearly underestimated the demand for the higher trims.

Think you're right about their underestimating. I was going to go with YB, because of the wait time. But, I was just looking at pics of the red candy and think I may just deal with the wait.

There is no problem with Blue Candy that I am aware of. It is the Kona Blue that is in the process of being replaced with Sonic Blue.
