Looks like an outstanding deal to me. I know now Ford has dropped their rebate to $3500, so that makes getting a similar deal a little harder. Plus, it seems here the supply is limited, making dealers less likely to make deals like that. I'm still going to try and pull off a deal similar to yours.
Thanks for the reply!

Was wondering about this 'dealer plan' pricing that I'm eligible due to a family member being employed by Ford. I was given a quote of $25,923.66 on the above vehicle with Conveniece, Chrome, Drivers group, tow package, sync, sirius, door code, metallic paint and 3.55 limited slip. Truck stickers for $34,875 after the $2000 Sync, Chrome and Tow discount. They added some $399 appearance package.
The 'dealer plan' discount was $3850.34, and I'm wondering if that is just a percentage off the MSRP or if anything is negotiable on that. It would seem to me that it really isn't much of a discount as the Edmunds pricing shows 26130 with the $5500 in rebates and Truecar has $25932 with same applied. So where's the discount?
Seems I could do better by holding out til later when the 2011's roll out, though rebates might not be the same. Still, I thought family pricing plans were supposed to be pretty good, but by the looks of it, I guess not!

3.55 limited slip rear end
Trailer tow pkg
rear window defroster
XLT convenience package
reverse sensing system
XLT chrome package
all weather floor mats
MSRP around $36,700
I originally paid $27k for this, but found out that it had 5k miles on it halfway home. Apparently it was a demo model that was unmarked. Nobody told me about it. So they offered to swap me for a different comparably equipped one or a free extended warranty plus some cash back. I took the cash back and warranty since there wasn't a mark/scratch/scuff/ding/etc... anywhere. I ended up paying $25k and getting the free extended warranty. I don't feel quite as good about the deal as I originally did, but I still think I did OK (but not outstandingly great).

A great deal! 5K miles is something you shouldn't worry about. 12K below retail with extended warranty is a sweet deal.

That's kind of what I thought, but it is nice to hear somebody else say it too. I went over EVERYTHING really good and the only evidence I found that the truck had even been driven was the odometer. I normally try to keep my vehicles for a long time (7-8 years, 100k+ miles), and in the end, those extra miles on aren't going to make any diff. at all to the value at that point.

Dealers are asking for 15K for little low end sedans. There is no doubt a loaded truck worth 25K is a better value. If the economy is strong, you won't get it for less than 30K. Also, the new engines coming in the 2011 trucks have aluminum blocks. I don't believe they will last long like cast iron blocks.

Pretty basic XLT model:
XLT Conv Pkg
MSRP of $31,235
Edmunds Invoice $28,449 (the invoice the dealer showed me was more like 29,000)
Sale Price $23,500
WIth only $75 doc fee! They came down from $399 doc fee as I qualified for X Plan, they said the truck price was better then X plan but they would discount the doc fee.
Also did some big time negotiations on the interest rate, they started at 5.49 and we ended up at 3.6% for 72 months.
I pick up the truck Friday, overall I am happy with the deal.

Just make sure you check the mileage on it. As you can read from a few posts earlier my dealer tried to sell me a 5000 mile demo at the "new" price I negotiated. They claimed they didn't know it was an unmarked demo, but I wouldn't put it past any car dealer to pull something like that and hope the owner does not notice. Anyway, it ended up working out for me in that they gave me an extended warranty and some more cash to compensate for the miles and I feel that was fair.
Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. You are going to love the truck. It's SWEET!
#457 of 520 Great customer service from the dealer!

So it was really bothering me that my "new" truck had 5100 miles on it right off the lot even though the dealer gave me an extended warranty and some extra cash back (see earlier posts). I called them up, told them that I just wasn't feeling right about it, and they said come on down and we'll swap you for a different one. Did that, no problem! The new truck didn't have backup assist on it like my original one did and the sales manager said, "We'll put that on for you. We want your new one to be just like the one that had all the features you really liked." So, they said we won't charge you extra for the 6CD changer and we'll knock off a few hundred for your trouble. That's Awesome. Now, I am really excited about getting a good deal on a new truck rather than feeling OK about my 5100 mile demo.
