#128 of 498 Negotiating a price
Feb 25, 2007 (11:45 am)
I just spoke to a dealer who offered me the following:
2007 Ford Focus SE + Convenience Package + Safety Package + Auto Transmission
MSRP = 17,055
"Invoice" = 16142
2500 Customer Incentive + 500 FMCC Cash + 500 FMCC First Time Buyer Downpayment Match
Final price = (16,142 - 3,500) = 12,642 + Tax, Doc
Is this the best I can expect to do, or have people been able to get better pricing than this?

you should be able to do better. at least make a counter offer, or get a price from another dealer.

I've seen the Focus go from 4000-6500 off MSRP. They depreciate like hell. A 17000 MSRP model barely wholesales for 10000 after year 1 if that.
The 6500 off would be year end (july-sept) sales. You would have to get numerous bids toward the end of the month and work to get it.
For a plain jane 4dr se and not to picky on colors/options I would want at least $5000 off.

I have a trade in value of 10,000 (I owe nothing on it). How long of the back and forth will I have to put up with before I could expect to get an offer of $5,000 of MSRP?

Get the fightingchance.com package
Read "Don't get taken every time" by remar Sutton (library or Amazon)
Nuff said. Informed for life
(I've seen yet again another ad for $6000 off a Focus on motoralley.com, and browsed just a few)
#134 of 498 2007 focus
Mar 10, 2007 (6:20 pm)
i just bought a 07 basic focus for a whopping 9300$....msrp 14,075...my wife is a filipino so the price went from 98 to 9300$...first time buyer w/ 13 percent interest...for 2 years, but will pay off sooner...it is a good car with a lot of headroom and i would recommend it to anyone...5000 miles so far and no problems...my new american cars have always run good...dont see why i should pay 2 or 3 k more for honda or toyota...fords and chevys would depreciate faster but not a issue if your the type to keep car for awhile...japanese companies need our business a lot less than big 3 do anyway, why not throw them a bone..or at least consider buying a car assembled here or w/ a high content of domestic and or north american parts

I just got offered $11,424 for a Zx3 SE manual trans with Conv Group, Saftey Pack and Sport group. Thats about $5500 below MSRP, how good of a deal is this? I may be able to get it for less with the new buyer rebate too putting it about $6k below MSRP. I think this is the best I've seen, what do you think?

Read my message 121 130 133. Even a High end focus ($19000) is barely a 11000 vehicle wholesale after a year so you are definitely in the ballpark. The best i've ever seen advertised was 7200 off a zx4, and that may have been a teaser.

I paid just over 14k for my 2007 Focus ST. Price was slightly under invoice plus a $2500 instant rebate.
Options were CD changer and Perimeter alarm.
