I actually haven't shaken hands with anyone yet. The ad I saw was Maxwell Ford in Austin but the salesman I actually got a sample worksheet from is with Riata in Manor(Just East on 290).
I googled Tx/Ok and got an ad from Southway Ford Near San Antonio. It was (0 down, $179, 10.5k for 2yrs). I Called and asked for the internet department and asked about the 1000 match. Carman (our local well of knowledge)stated in the Explorer Lease discussion that you could use part of that model's "lease cash" as a downpayment and get it matched. Well they said I couldn't with the f-150 and It wasn't a lease but a red carpet option. It kinda broke down from there but that's another story.
I think i'll stay closer to home for my deal.
Looking on the Ford Finance site I read more on their "lease" option. There seem to be three and i'm still a little confused with their explanations. But my worksheet has a balloon so I'm good and will make sure. Ty for the alert!
My MSRP needs to come down because the TXOK discount is on the Sticker so my residual may come down, But if I want to exercise my option to buy is this neccesarily the right thing to do.... should I just try to get the $935 rebate savings instead (can i Carman?) and then negotiate my lease end purchase price lower than my Residual? hmmm
That brings me to rebates... I need to know more. With the balloon are all the ones listed good for balloon "purchase/lease/option". NOTE: the perfect match doesn't show up anywhere on the incentives page. It should be there somewhere along with the .5 apr finance for lease/purchase option. Ford wants to move these gas guzzlers! They have me at 4000 rebates right now just like the Ford Site. Is this a combo of the $2500 (assigned to dealer?)and the $1500 for the 4.6l (can i cash that out to me? and put 1000 down...) or something else all together. They said if I Qualify the student/grad $500 would apply (i'm finishing UT via distant learning).
I need to learn more about rebates and what fees i can expect with the balloon ... they got a 50 doc fee on me i'll try to nix.
Oh.. Riata is part of Lief Johnson. My truck will probably be pulled from their stock . Their inventory is online buyford.com
Hope this ramble helps... lol. I'll post more after tomorrow's ads and my first dealer visit. I'm taking it slow but think the tx limo or the explorer will be in the driveway by month's end. I'm hoping for a couple options now lol. GL with your hunt!
This lease deal is better than the Impala one posted up front even if insurance and gas adds expense. But TY Edmunds. You are priceless

Hi all. I'm looking at this truck, which has the heavy duty tow package and just a hair over 51,000 miles. It looks to be in clean-excellent condition based on reading the descriptions on this site and its loaded. We've road tested it a couple of times and are pleased with the vehicle.
The dealer is looking for $13,988 and I'm offering $13,200 as we're paying cash. I received a message that they took this truck in as a trade for $13,500. After reading the values on this site (and KBB) this seems unheard of. I've never had a dealer give me more for a trade than KBB value. I've seen retail value for this truck (fully loaded) from $14,200 - $16,400. So they've under priced it? They offer a 60 day 3,000 mile warranty on it. I'm now waiting, waiting, waiting to hear back from the sales rep.
In the climate of rising gas costs (seems like a daily occurrence these days) is it not a good climate to negotiate the price of what is more a pleasure vehicle, versus a work vehicle??
Is it a fair price they're asking or should I wait for the next one?

Ok, I've had a chance to go in and check this out some more. I researched the Blackbook value to be $9,470 - $11,610, and that's being generous. If they took this truck in on a trade, rest assured that they would only offer what they might get for it in the event they could not sell it and had to take it to auction. This is about what they would get. Another thing: there is no 2001 vehicle in excellent condition no matter what they may claim. In automotive circles, "excellent" is reserved for cars that are virtually just off the showroom floor and for a few more miles. It goes down from there. As nice and clean as it is, and as nice as they represent it to be, in the world of used cars, it's not "excellent". You bring up gas prices and worktruck/pleasure truck. It may be that gas prices depress the market for used trucks, but the way I look at it, people who are looking for trucks generally aren't all that concerned about the price of gas anyway (otherwise they'd be buying a prius) so I would think it's a fairly neutral thing. The prior or anticipated use of the truck should have little bearing on the price unless its prior use turned it into a heap.
Bottom line, I would seriously doubt he offered 13500 for it on a trade. I would offer the dealer 10500 and go up to 11, NO MORE. I don't know where you are or what your market is like but that's what I'd offer, and then walk if he does't take it. There are tons of f150s out there. Oh, be sure to have a mechanic check it out before you buy.

Just bought a 2006 F250 fully loaded Lariat with Capt's chairs, everything off the lot was 48,000. In California that is a good buy, let me know what you think.

I know ford canceled the owners loyalty rebate was wondering if ford might increase the rebate on f-150s before the end of the month.

Anyone bought a basic regular cab 4X4 lately? What's a good price?-- I am looking to purchase, not lease.
