I just picked it up at Syosset Ford in NY , Silver with black leather interior, 20 inch pirelli scorpions, 6 cd, sync, chrome running boards. I love it . Rides like a car.
( I'am use to F250'S) .
41,490 msrp. less 750.00 Sync & Captains chair credit, Sell price was 37,145. less the 2500 from Ford. + TTR .
They gave me 15,000. for my 2005 F250 ,it was in good condition, the interior was a little rough , but those cloth seats are hard to keep clean.

I have an '09 King Ranch and just did a long trip and averaged 18.1 mpg on highway over 400 miles at an average of 68 mph per the trip computer with the 5.4L engine. Only 1,000 miles on the truck so hope to see a bit more once engine gets broken in. But of course, I didn't buy it for the mpg and neither should anyone else.
#426 of 521 how to negotiate?
Aug 29, 2009 (2:37 pm)
Hi, I'm interested in this truck: http://tiny.cc/qwf8A
This dealer is a credit union who keeps the nice vehicles that get returned from a lease. In some cases the vehicles have been leased twice...
My question is, what should I offer them for it? Here is my rationale.
1. the truck has likely been paid for once by the guy who was "fleased" by the lease
2. These vehicles will eventually be sold at auction if the credit union does not sell them
3. These trucks have been depreciated... this one by 5 years...
So, what should I offer? What would a truck like this fetch at an auction in Michigan? Do I have any leverage with the bank if I ask them to look at the books and see just what they need to get for it to pay off the residual value?
I am looking for some help. I need a truck, dont want to buy new, but want some negotiating power wiht the bank who owns it..
Please reply especially those with this kind of experieince either negotitating to buy or on the banking side of the sales business..

Hi... I replied to this post in the Lease Questions forum, but to add something...
If you are interested in the auction value of the vehicle, post a description in

The current 2009 f-150 incentives expire on 10/05. Does Ford normally run better incentives on the current model year as the end of the year gets closer?
#429 of 521 Good Deal...i think so.

In short I got a 2009 Lariat Supercrew Shortbed, two tone, captain chairs, navi, sony, running boards, etc...
Edmunds Inv = $39500
Price Paid = $34200 (includes ford -$4500)
I think I good deal, but trying to make my buyers remorse feel better. I get the truck on Thursday. I know I will feel better then : )

too bad you didn't buy a GM.. they'll let you return it after 30 days...
"If you live for having it all, what you have is never enough; “enough” is like the horizon − always receding. "
if you can afford the truck great, but if you can't you'll soon find that keeping up with neighbors and friends will make you broke like they are. Good luck. it's a helluva commitment if you didnt put a lot down...

Here is a good quote I read today"
You drive the car, the $40,000 car around the corner, and park it and instantly the thrill goes away. You find it’s a waste of money. And no matter how big your house is, you can only sit your ass in one seat at a time."
just trying to help you back out of the deal before you make a mistake, that's all.

By me saying "buyers remorse" I think I left that open to interpretation. I am a person that runs numbers forwards, backwards, and upside down. In the end I got a price that was invoice - all ford incentives. So if my homework serves me as it should, the dealers profit was the holdback. I just have not found a real good website to compare deals too. I guess that is what Edmunds TMV is for and I got it for $1K under that. I was just looking for comfirmation that it was a good or so so deal or I got ripped a new one : )
I have very good well thought out reasons for everything that came on the truck. I am getting $6K for a 2002 dodge ram that is falling apart. It is not a matter of affording it either, but I don't have nice vehicles just because I carelessly throw my money around.
Just got 3.69% financing so it just keeps getting better.
Thanks for the look outs.

I bought my F150 almost 2 years ago and still subscribe to this board. I love mine, it's a tricked out Harley Davidson with the factory Saleen Supercharger, black on black, all options. Every time I get in it I smile, and I paid just about 40K for a 48K MSRP. I had been wanting one since I stepped onto the showroom floor in 2002 and saw one. I couldn't afford it then, but since then life has been good to me.
The Honda Odyssey board (my wife's car) is very very active, I wish the F150 board was like this. They have 8-10 posts a day with people buying cars. I would say that I've found the TMV on this site to be off at least a few thousand bucks, but I think the invoice pricing is a pretty accurate figure. Congrats and good luck with your truck!
