#372 of 432 2010 Escape - Factory Order
Jun 16, 2009 (2:30 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!

I was considering ordering a 2010, but they found me the 09 I wanted. They start production of the 2010 on August 2nd and it takes a minimum of 90 days to get your car, so you will be waiting a long time.
If you want your Escape relatively soon try and find an 09 model. Right now the incentives are crazy on this vehicle and they may not be as generous on the new 2010 models. I got $5,500 off the msrp of my vehicle, almost a grand UNDER invoice.
I heard the new xlt I4 2.5 model with leather, sync and sun which is what I wanted, will start around 28,500 for the 2010 model year, a little more expensive than the 09 model year.
#374 of 432 V6 regional discount

I've noticed a $500 regional V6 discount on the Escapes which is subtracted from MSRP on the window sticker. Is this also to be subtracted from invoice price here at Edmunds to get the true dealer cost?
Also, do dealers have advertising costs that they add on to the invoice price?....I'm just trying to find out the real dealer cost on the escape I'm planning on buying.

I believe the six-speed is new for '09. We have 10K miles on our V-6 Limited, and the only complaint is an intermittent hesitation when accelerating from a stop. Some forums have mentioned this, but Ford does not have a fix.

Somewhat old news because we bought ours in Feb. V-6 limited with every option but Nav. MSRP $30820, out the door for $26215 after rebates and coupons. Times may be tougher now, so they may be giving better deals?
#377 of 432 Good deal?

Good deal or not?
Walked into dealership right after it closed. A salesman leaving offered a 2009 Tribute touring. 2.5L AWD. Sticker 25500. Said he would sell for 23,800 then would take another $3000 off for rebate. Puts it at 20,800. Is this a great deal or just average? Own a Ford -- would an Escape get me a better deal?
How is this vehicle in the snow? Would I be better looking for the 3.0 L for snow driving?
Would receive C4C rebate money on this vehicle for $3500.

Chicago - went to a dealer (Golf Mill Ford) yesterday and they refused to negotiate from MSRP on an Escape, needless to say I laughed and walked out. What a joke - avoid this dealer. ANyway, I am looking for an 09 black or black pearl XLT, cloth, 6cyl FWD or 4cyl 4wd (to take advantage of cash for clunkers), sun&sync or moon&tune...those are my only requirements. I was thinking invoice or a little less plus the $2500 Ford is offering, plus the $750 coupon Ford sent me, plus $4500 for cash for clunker.
MSRP: $28,220 (6cyl, fwd, sun&synce, audiophile, leather, cargo)
Invoice: $25,924 (does this include the $336 sun&synce disc and $500 v-6 disc?)
Rebate: $2500, $4500, $750
Total plus ttl: $18,200

Last February I bought an '09 iTouring Tribute from Performance Mazda in Houston. Love the truck, but the dealership went belly-up.
Don't think I'll buy another Tribute because Mazda is changing the appearance to make 'em look more Japanese than does the current truck. Back to Ford next time.
