#24 of 520 Purchase of 2003 F150 SuperCab on Dec 30,2003
Jan 07, 2004 (11:15 am)
I purchased a 2003 F150 SuperCab in Houston from Mac Haik for $21283 which includes TT&L. MSRP of vehicle was $28550. Final price includes $2500 regular rebate plus $2000 Ford financing rebate. I can pay off the loan after 90 days so an extra $2000 rebate is more than worth 90 days of interest. Mac Haik was a good dealership to buy from. No dealer add-ons as another local dealer had who added $2400 to each F150 with worthless dealer add-ons.

I guess they are really dropping the prices in order to make room for the 04's. Why not get an 04 at this point? Unless of course you were looking to save some $$$
#26 of 520 lookin at a truck to buy
Jan 26, 2004 (5:57 pm)
i am considering buying a used f350 flat bed 1985 utility truck.
nada doesn't list for condition of truck.
kelley lists it as fair condition.
edmunds list it as rough condition.
the asking price is 3,500.00 i feel this is too high according to the guide books. it is a nice truck. however it needs all new tires. new exhaust and rag gear is going bad. i haven't test drove it yet nor have i made any commitment to it yet . what do y'all think. i am getting this truck to haul water and horses with maybe haul hay as well. i do want it to be right for my horses sake. my boy friend is a certified ford mechanic so repairs never cost me what it does most folks. do you think this is worth it for the price?
edmunds says 1,500.00 in its current condition.
kelley says 2,305.00, nada says near 3,500.00 with no condition listed for price. which one do i believe? i think the asking price is too high . 3,500 i would think would list it in good condition not fair to rough. it does not have any fancy options on it either. some feed back could help me alot.

Hi, I doing some research on a used 2000 F-150 XL Stepside Truck in my area,( Woodridge ILL) its a reg cab 4x2 short bed with the 5.4 eng. and it looks to be fully loaded from the research i've done. My questions are how is this truck when pulling a 2300lb boat and the dealer is asking 13,900 for the truck do you think it be possible to get this truck for 11,000 to 11,500.
#32 of 520 in the market for 04 F-250 4WD Crew Cab Lariat
Apr 17, 2004 (10:44 pm)
I am currently in the market for a new F-250 Crew cab, Lariat. Could anyone share their buying experiences and final price, before tax and license fee? There is one truck that I have looked at that has diesel engine, automatic 5-spd transmission, 3.73 Limited Slip, with many extras such as stereo w/ 6 CD, moonroof, heated seats, reverse veh aid sensor, etc. The invoice price for the vehicle is $40,000 before rebates (MSRP $43,600), etc. and the dealer is offering it at $37,000. Has anyone found a better deal?
Also please share your thoughts on pros/cons of diesel vs. gas engine. Thank you so much for your time in advance.

Mathematically, does it seem to you like a "better deal" is avilable? I mean, there isn't 6 grand worth of markup in an F-250, especially a run-of-the-mill Lariat like the one you describe. If the invoice price is indeed "40 grand," how exactly do you think they manage to stay in business if the can realistically sell an F-250 for 3,000 under invoice that? Are you a Ford employee? If not, you better start to rethink this deal they gave you. Because it isn't mathematically real, not if they intend on staying in business for any length of time.
I believe you are seeing the lure-you-in price. Ya know, the one that gets you in the door but changes quicker than Madonna on mescaline. But something tells me you'll still call 5 other dealerships to get them to sell you the truck for like 35 or 36k (right!) and you won't believe them when you hear what they REALLY sell for and you'll end up at the place that quoted you 37 grand for a 44k truck. But once they start revealing the way those numbers unfold, you'll wonder how you fell for it all.
