Let's make a deal

OK close to pulling the trigger on a Ti and looking for pricing advice:

Current Ford Offers: 2000 cash back or 0% for 60. I'm going to keep the car for a long time so I'm thinking 0% for 60 is the way to go. If I chose that what could I expect to get the car for?

Car details:
MSRP 26,580
2012 Black Hatchback Ti. Leather, Roof, Navi, 18's

Whats the invoice price for this car? Can I expect to get that or better? I see several of these exact setups on Cars.com advertised for 23.5, but those could be BS prices to get you in the door. Opinions?

Also there are 2 dealerships(both 3 hours away from me) that have identical cars, should I pit these guys up against each other? Or should I see if my local dealership would get it for me?

Any input is appreciated

Invoice is probably $2k or so less than MSRP. Every time I buy a car I pit the dealers against each other! I bought my car in June and got 1.75% and $1,500 cash back if that makes you feel better.

Pitting dealerships against one another is a good way to get the price down. When one dealership gives you a price, take it to the others, say dealership A will do this for me, what can you do better? Take it back and forth until you get the best price/offer.

Now that the $2k rebate is back you shouldn't accept anything less than $4k off sticker. Just the other day a poster on another thread said they just got like $4,300 off a SE w/ Sport Package. Most dealers are probably advertising around $3,500 off and should be able to be pushed to over $4,000.

not many options to make the pricing comparable at truecar.com. KBB says dealer invoice is 24,995, that seems kinda high to me

What is your interest rate if you don't take the 0%? How much is being financed?

The $2000 is the better deal

If you somehow put 0 down and financed the entire car. At 8% interest it would save you $2050, so if your interest rate is lower than that take the $2000

then I'd be stuck taking their Ford Financing, probably 2.9 for 60. I'd take it for 4K off plus 0%

Great! As darkangelism said you're better off taking the cash and a rate below 5% than the alternative. 2.9% is a very decent rate. You may be able to get even 1.9% through a credit union.
