Purchased 2014 Focus SE

This weekend I purchased my first Focus after doing several weeks of online pricing, reading reviews, and visiting a few dealers I found what I believe to have been a great deal. Was able to get more then what I wanted for my trade-in also.

I was able to get my Focus SE with AT, 200A package in Oxford White and only 13 miles on it for $15,627.00 after the factory rebates.

Just wondering if this is indeed a good deal I got?

Also, I am a bit confused from what I have read the 2014 Focus Sedan should have the Flex Fuel engine that can use E85 or Unleaded however the owners manual states it should have a "yellow ring" around the fuel cap. My car does not have that yellow ring nor does it have the "Flex Fuel" tag on the back of the car. The dealer said it can take up to E85, I just want to make sure prior to using anything over E15.




EDITED TO ADD QUESTION.

If you're in a location with California emissions and the car is a PZEV (partial zero emissions vehicle) then you will have a secondary catalyst and a tighter tolerance on the evaporative emissions. PZEV models cannot run E85.

Look your Vin up on www.etis.ford.com

So I looked it up on that site and this is what it states:

Primary Features
Build Date: 26.11.2013
Vehicle Line: Focus (C346N)
Body Style: 4 Door Saloon
Version: SE
Engine: 2.0L Duratec DI TIVCT (160PS)
Transmission: 6 Speed Auto Transmission DPS6
Drive: LHD FWD
Emission: 50 State Emission Requirements
Air Conditioning: Manual Air Conditioning
Paint: Oxford White

Can you tell by that? Everything else I have read on the Focus for 2014 is it only is available in two engine types one for the non-ST and one for the ST, this is from ford.com.

Thank you! Obviously they do have a non-flex fuel engine option that Ford.com does not show as available then.

Not that it matters to me as around here you cannot even purchase fuel above E10.

Nice car.
Dealer in metro Atlanta show $16.2 on website for similarly equipped. Supposedly that price includes all rebates. The website specifies "flexible I4" as to engine type. I am assuming that means flex-fuel, as mine came with flex fuel badge---which I removed---so I am "badging delete".
Good luck with your new car.
