#363 of 435 How is A -plan works
May 19, 2009 (10:08 am)
I have A-plan since my brother works for ford. Dealer give me MSRP-Aplan_incentive. I am not sure whether I can ask Invoice-Aplan-incentive , but dealer told me MSRP-Aplan is the price he get the car from ford. Actually MSRP-Aplan is 400 less than invoice, but I do not believe dealer get the car from Ford with 400$ less than invoice. I first 2005 ford escape (bought as new) was purchased with Invoice-500$-Incentive. Can anyone tell me whether the dealer is lying? Thanks

Yes, I went to the web site, it gives me MSRP, A-plan price, incentive and net price, it is the same as dealer's price

Thanks on the tip of requesting a brochure from the the Ford website. I got a coupon for $750.00 and used it yesterday to buy my wife a new Escape!

When did they come out with the 6 speed auto trans ? I'm thinking of purchasing one and the only thing negative are the seat odor ( from materials ) and firmness of the padding. Mechanically I cant find too many negatives from people that own them in my area.. Maybe yours is not the norm ?
#369 of 435 09 Mercury Mariner Premier
Jun 13, 2009 (1:57 pm)
Don't have a clue if I got a good deal. Traded in an 06 Fusion with 36,000 miles on 09 Mariner 4WD with lots of extras. Sticker price 30,885. Traded for 17,500. Mariner has side boards, heated package, moon/tune elite pkg, rear cargo pkg, trailer towing (don't need), dual auto temp, the bluetooth thing, and reverse sensing system. I took the 2500 rebate over the free financing because the interest on the amount I had to borrow will be less than the 2500. I do wish I had kept my fusion just because it was paid for and had an extended warranty. I think I would have been better off in the long run but maybe this year I won't get stuck in the snow!

if you had an extended warranty, make sure you get reimbursed for the unused miles.
#371 of 435 New 2009 Ford Escape XLT I4 2.5 4WD
Jun 15, 2009 (10:37 am)
Hey guys I just purchased a new Ford Escape XLT I4 2.5. I had a real hard time locating the car I wanted to buy (Black Exterior w/ Black Leather, Sync and Sun Package, I4. 2.5 4WD, cargo pkg) My dealer was able to locate a Black XLT with cloth seats and is installing black leather seats this week.
I was a little hesitant at first, but I think everything is going to work out alright. I think I got a great deal on the car. Total after taxes came to $23500 with the sticker being 27,240.
I will be picking up the car on Wednesday with the installed leather seats.
#372 of 435 2010 Escape - Factory Order
Jun 16, 2009 (1:30 pm)
I've never ordered a car direct from the factory before. But I'm thinking of ordering one of the new 2010's. A local dealer told me they can start to order in July.
Anyone know how long it takes from when the order is placed until the car comes in?
Also in negoiating price, is an offer of $200 over invoice too little? too much?
I'm hoping there is someone out here with past experiences that can help. Thanks!
