A 2010 focus should have about 2500 off msrp in discounts etc. A 09 about 4500-$5000. Unfortunately most of this went out the window for many, as a deluge of people smelling free money flooded dealerships with sales rates for about 30 days never seen in the history of many dealerships.
Obviously, with demand that high, and many people entering the door who hadn't bought a new vehicle since the Reagan Administration, normal discounts disappeared supplanted by $4000 gov't vouchers straight into the dealerships and factory's pockets.
With some clunkers worth $1500 and up, many could have done better or as well a month before the gov't certificates. The flood of demand driving prices up cancelling out most or all of the $4000 govt check.
Just another $3 billion to the gov't debt clock.
Thanks for the info- I really didn't think that add on fee was really on the level, but it's good to know it's not unheard of-
No rebates at all- there was a tristate ford rebate for the 2010 that I saw listed online for 1000, but this dealer didn't seen to know anything about it, and I didn't see it on the ford website, so maybe it was outdated or in error.

I'm looking for a new Focus sedan in Houston. Does anyone have idea how much I should expect to pay? Am I too late for the summer specials?

I mentioned this in other forums, but felt it was worth repeating... If you are a Ford Focus owner - try to check out the Ford Owners (http://www.fordowner.com) website. It helps to keep everything online, and allows you to keep track of your cars’ complete maintenance records, calendar/mileage of recommended maintenance, and tons of coupons to use when you have your car checked at a Ford dealer

#349 of 498 2008 Ford Focus SES Tire Wear
Nov 16, 2009 (1:26 pm)
And you thought they fixed the alignment issues in the 2008s! Don't be fooled! First set of tires went around 18,000 miles--they blamed it on me, said I didn't get them rotated enough. So, after another $500 and a brand new set of Pirellis, I faithfully rotated every 6,000 miles with my oil changes---didn't do much better, my 65,000 mile tires last about 30,000 miles! I bought this car for the fuel savings, but it seems as though I have to put a brand new set of tires on the stupid thing every year. Where's the savings?? And, where's Ford?? This is the first Ford I've owned in years, and I should have stuck with my Dodge/Chrysler products. Ford needs to put their money where their mouth is--why do they continue to get away with selling a faulty product??

Any car dealer should have at least a 48-72 hour return policy! Go straight to the manager!

I dont understand why your tires didnt last much longer! I own a 2008 Focus myself with 42,000 miles on it. I have never rotated the tires and they still have good tread!. There must be a reason you are haveing so much trouble!. If you ever find out why this is happening please let us know
