....would be interested in a similar deal (invoice & 0%financing for 60 minutes)
Those balloon payments are a PAIN!

For an X-Plan purchase, does $100 over invoice, $2000 cash rebate, and 0% for 72 months sound right? Is that a good deal right now?

I bought an '03 Aviator on 10/8 after about a month of test driving EVERYTHING. I have every option (chrome wheels, tire pressure system, moonroof, DVD, in dash 6-cd changer, etc.) on the vehicle available except the Navigational system - and preferred the 2nd row bench seat. I paid $39,804 including delivery and the MSRP on the vehicle was a little over $50,000. This included financing a portion of the purchase with Ford Motor Credit (temporarily). I also ordered the spoiler now available on '04 models.
The vehicle is GREAT! I didn't want the larger Sequoia my husband preferred - because the handling was so much better on the Aviator. It was also more expensive. The fact that the 3rd row seat folds flat instead of "tumbling" is a big plus - as are the side airbags for my kids in the 2nd row.

Hi! I bought a Vivid red 2003 Aviator AWD sticker price- 45,760.00. It has the moon roof and tow package. and 17" spoke machine alum wheels. I chose the 40/20/40 second row bench. No DVD (we have our own we take on long trips) and single cd with cassette. I love this car! I looked at them before the rebates and the sales guy told me to wait and they would go on sale. He wase right. I am soooo glad I waited. The sale price was 43,239.68 and $6,000 in rebates. We finances some to get the extra 1,000 back from ford. That is now paid off though so it cost me 63 in finace charges for that 10 grand borrowed. We paid 37,239.68 which is a savings of 8,500.00 plus off sticker price. Of course I still think I paid too much but this is the first brand new car I have owned in my life and I love it. The dealership really treats you special- calls me for my maitnaince checks- I have 3 years/36,000 mi included including oil changes.
The fuel economy really stinks but I guess that is the price you pay for living big! I am worth it. I love the red color also. it has the leather parchmnt interior.
The rear sensors are the best! They make parellel parking a DREAM!And I dont have to worry about hitting a garbage can or the mail box pulling out of my driveway anymore! I wish they had front sensors for parking purposes too!
How does all that sound? Did I do OK?

We just found out we have twins on the way, so I may be looking at the Aviator this weekend. Good luck with your big purchase!
