I've noticed that as well. I don't like it. My aim is to wait for the next 0% event and make an offer with a substantial down payment. The way I see it, it's a sale they can make or a sale they can lose. I simply will not finance a car with interest, and Ford does their own financing, not through a bank, so they certainly have the power to make these decisions. I'm hoping the fact that I am already financing a car at 0% and I am willing to put a large down payment on the car at regular MSRP are good enough reasons to just do it.

Just made the swap from 12 focus to st. Absolutely worth it! The price diff was difficult and financing above 0% sucks.

LOL - this is a great thread as I'm in the same boat! Have a '12 SE really wanting the ST! If I may, how much did they give you for your trade? I'm getting low balled and don't feel like eating a couple grand! But after driving the ST, that may be a small price to pay!

Thanks!
Brian

Thanks for the reply - I thought it was just me! I got offered $13K w/ only 17k on the clock and thought that was really low. I'm not sure if I want to flush $2k of negative equity down the toilet...But it is an amazing car for sure!

Last monday I traded in my 2012 titanium with 10500 miles doe a 2013 st literally right off the truck. Had my titanium for 4 months. Got 3300 off sticker on the st and got good money on my titanium. About 1500 less then what I paid for it actually.
