#78 of 155 Purchased a 2006 SE 500 YESTERDAY
Jun 30, 2006 (7:16 am)
In Raleigh area....
SE w/ safety/security package...
$23725 sticker - $21,725 selling price (yes the standard $2k off = $200 below Edmunds "invoice") + $1k rebate = $500 Ford loyalty rebate + $1500 trade-in (pretty much what we wanted for the 8 year old trade) Financed for 60 months at 0%. Out the door was basically about $4k below sticker w/ our trade in allowance.
We were pleased w/ the deal... wanted a "big" car w/ a big trunk. LIked the car. Had considered a Fusion also... Five Hundred apparently not selling as well b/c selection of colors/options was huge. Not really looking for all the bells & whistles, just a good price/payment. Can't really beat the deal for size of car; gas mileage; etc. with another model after MUCH research...

#80 of 155 0% financing
Jul 05, 2006 (2:09 pm)
Does anyone know who exactly qualifies for the 0% financing. Are we saying those with credit scores above 700?
Considering purchasing a SEL AWD since I live up here in the mountains and you'd be stupid not to have an AWD. Although, I'm wondering how the car will handle in heavy snow. Suburus are great for up here, but I was thinking of something different.

I just purchased an 05 500 limited with every bell and whistle that was available to this car for 21,000 up here in Framingham Mass.So keep working on those prices and good luck.

The used 500 I just purchased has quite a bad smell of cigarette smoke. Does anyone have any sugestions as to how to get the stink out.
#83 of 155 Please someone clarify Ford Incentives, Help!
Jul 12, 2006 (9:53 am)
This is my first post. We are looking for a safe family car. We have 1 little one and another on the way so we need to fit two carseats in back.
In our area, Southeast Michigan, I see Ford is offering $1000 cash/or gas rebate as well as the 0% financing.
From other postings, it looks like it's more like $2000 or $3000 back and 0%.
We have X-plan at work, but I don't know what percent it is off the invoice. Can we use it with the incentives? We may be able to get Z-plan (is that the retiree?) from my father-in-law, but I'm not sure he'll do it. Will we save a lot more? We are a on tight budget and hope to get a fair deal.
Can anyone please explain the incentives, as well as x and z plans?
Also, any dealers in SE Michigan you would recommend?
Thanks so much in advance--this is a tough decision for us and we really need some guidance from experienced car buyers!!!

X-plan will be a few hundred OVER invoice.
Z-plan would probably be something around $1,000 under X-plan . but I'm not sure about that one. Memory's a bit fuzzy.
Rebates generally work with X-plan, and probably Z-plan. Your Ford dealer would know for sure.

Just go to Ford Credit site and apply for the 0% financing. It's free and you will either get an online approval or rejection. If you're qualified, all you have to do is to bring the letter to the dealer when purchasing the vehicle. Saves a lot of time that way.
#86 of 155 Maryland - Advice on Resale of Ford Five Hundred SEL?
Jul 18, 2006 (9:39 am)
I am actually trying to sell my 500 SEL. It's an awesome car but it is absolutely HUGE!! It's just too much car for me. It has a few extras like leather, moon roof and tinted windows. The kicker is that the car is near perfect condition with only 7000 miles and dealer don't want to offer me anything as a trade! Anyone got any advise on a alternate way of selling it? I know I won't get what I think the cars worth but I gotta be able to get more than the dealer!
#87 of 155 How's the 500 selling?
Jul 19, 2006 (5:54 am)
I'm going to see a dealer today and I want a little ammunition in my pocket. Where could I find on the net the figures on how the 500 is selling? Thanks!
