Finally Got It

I traded my 2012 hatchback DCT in on a 2014 TB ST2! I loved my SE, but wanted more power, stick & better handling. I had tried before in May but the dealer was low balling me on my trade in (only $10k).

With all the incentives in place for the end of year, plus $750 in private mail rebate cash, I went down to a different dealer on New Years Eve and made the last deal of 2013 as we were the last people in the dealership. They gave me more for my trade ($11.6k) & I owed less, so it all worked out.

Before:

After:

Needless to say, I love It!!

Thanks! The price on the sticker was $27,700 with the moonroof added too. The dealer had added tint, nitrogen air, pinstripe and AMV ($1995) whatever that is?!?

So that brought the price on the lot to $30,500

I have X plan pricing and got the dealer to throw those dealer added stuff in for free too, so I got it for $26,400 and then we took off the year end rebates!

AMV = Adjusted Market Value, basically it was a dealer mark up to try and get more money for the car based on some perceived scarcity. I.e. a fool and his money are soon parted or so the dealer thought.

Lol.

It also gives them a bargaining chip that they can remove and still be thousands of dollars above invoice.

Thanks for the info! I know the Focus ST pretty good and couldn't see anything else they had added to it, so I'm glad I paid zero for their added mark up! LOL
