Got guarantee 0% for ST in mail today...

Well I got a letter from my Ford dealer to trade in my 2012SE for a new ST (Or any Ford) with 0% ford financing.
The blurb is I can trade in my old car and finace the new one for less than I am now paying.
Sucker bet... but yeah I am right about trade in and NOT upside down.
My current 2012 has very low miles (8,300) and is cherry all around.
So here I am thinking do I want a 'fast car'.
I have been driving faster of late.. But do I need another 140mph rocket like my LAST car.. Contour SVT?
I loved that car.. Kept it almost 13 years.
My current ride i also love, and it is only 20 months old..
Those Ricaro seats though...

The letter has a special confirmation number and small print the dealer has to comply with..
I wonder is the deal good at any dealer? or only the dealer who sent the letter?
The dealer does not have a ST in stock...

140mph is by no means a rocket, but an ST > SE.

Hell, the NA Focus will do close enough to that without the limiter...

You might need to read this closer as the fine print typically excluded the ST from any incentives or special financing. The last zero percent offer I saw excluded the ST by name.

No shit, I'm saying her current car is nearly as fast as her old car apparently was.

It's a worthless comparison though... the Contour SVT is a quick car.

The OP will need to decide if she wants fuel economy or performance.

You are right it excludes the ST. Forget it
Without 0% i would not bother at all.
thanks for making me go look at it again.
At first glance i thought it said incl ST, but it was excl ST

"wishful thinking?" LOL

Nothing but fast.

Before my '06 ST Focus I had a 98 SVT Contour. That car was nothing but fast and would go, go. go all day long. It was also the car of sorrows in a lot of ways as I bought it used off the internet. But when she had good tires on and racing up I-89 to Chow Bella nothing was finer or faster. I miss that car.
