#49 of 67 MKX and Baton Rouge LA
Oct 23, 2008 (3:00 am)
I went by Lincoln yesterday because I had it with Toyota. I decided to test drive an MKX. I was very surprised. It is a very nice vehicle. I was given the following price.: MSRP 37,720-Rebates 7750= 29,970. When I ran the $5000 rebates from factory off of the invoice I came back with 29,342. I am going to start my numbers at 28,625 and see what happens. Either way if they can meet my trade in of $9,000 I think this is a good deal. Any opinions. They have 25 MKX (2008) on the lot. They told me they ordered many of then right before the last order so that they would have them on hand when the end of the year rebates went through? Any help would be appreciated.

Those are some great rebates. Can you tell me what they consist of and is this a promotion right now?

Breakdown of Rebates in Baton Rouge, LA at Robinson Brothers Lincoln
$4,500 Factory Rebate
$2,750 Dealer Rebate
$500 Rebate because Member of American Quarter Horse Association
Two weeks ago I was told that I could have an additional Rebate from the factory if I owned a ford. Ford changed the requirements to the following: you must own an Explorer, Mountaineer of Explorer Trac. I lost that one because I don't own one of these vehicles
This runs until November 3, 2008.
#52 of 67 Update on MKX and Baton Rouge
Oct 23, 2008 (4:10 pm)
I went back to the dealership and this is where my negotiations stopped.
MSRP $38,005-Rebates $7,750 -Trade $9,000 +TTL $1,854 = Final Price $23,109.
I was offered a rate of 4.65% to finance the remainder over 36 moonths.
Does this sound reasonable. The cost is higer then my original post because I choose a more expensive MKX.

I bought my MKX today. It was a very pleasant experience. Robinson Brothers Lincoln in Baton Rouge LA are wonderful to work with.
I bought a Vapor Silver MKX with Light Stone interior. It has the Uttimate Package
MSRP $38,005-Rebates $7,750 -Trade $9,000 +TTL $1,844 = Final Price $23,099.
I was plesantly surprised when the offered me a lower interest rate then yesterday. I was offered a rate of 4.33% to finance the remainder over 36 moonths.
I am happy. I tried to work with the other Lincoln dealerships in the area and no one could even come close to this deal.
#54 of 67 New Vehicle - Whats Taxible
Nov 29, 2008 (9:04 pm)
I am a newbie on these forms so forgive me if this is posted in the wrong one. I live in Illinois and am would like to purchase a new (2009) MKX. While doing my research, I thought I would put together a financing spreadsheet to help me identify Rebate versus interest rate and differences in payments. Anyway, I would like to know what is actually taxable on a new vehicle sale. Please look at the list below and identify if it is applied Pre or Post Sales Tax.
Negotiated Trade-In Value
License & Registration
Destination / Delivery Fee
Thanks in advance

#57 of 67 2011 MKX Pricing
Aug 28, 2010 (11:21 am)
We have a 2007 MKX (black w/black, Ultimate & Elite pkgs) which has been an excellent vehicle. The new 2011 model is just now hitting the Central Florida dealerships. We were very surprised to see the jump in pricing for this year. A new well-equipped MKX is about the same price as the comparably equipped flagship MKS sedan. A comparably equipped Lexus crossover is only $1500 more.
Just wondering if anyone else thinks this Lincoln pricing strategy may not work? We can definitely keep our '07 another year to see if the prices drop or incentives make a dent in the sticker price.

I found your post very interesting as I am just now considering the acquisition of an new 2011 Lincoln MKX. I am comparing it to the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited which is a very nice ride indeed. I had also been considering the new 2011 Subaru Outback Limited but that consideration is marred by the fact the new Outback has a shaky steering wheel at highway speeds, which is something I don't want to get involved with.
Anyway, back to the Lincoln. The reason that the price has gone up is quite simply that the value of the currency has gone down and unless Ford raises its prices it will lose money selling these vehicles. The prices of virtually EVERYTHING are going up, not just MKXs. You can't have a government that is literally throwing trillions of dollars in unbacked dollars at every loony scheme under the sun and not expect prices of goods and services to rise.
Considering the effect of inflation upon all prices, I think the new Lincoln MKX is reasonably priced, or at least as reasonably priced as it can be under the circumstances.
IMHO the Lincoln is of higher quality than the Lexus. Ford is building better quality products all the time while Toyota is on the downward side of the curve. This deterioration in Toyota quality will affect Lexus sooner or later and I personally do not want to own a Lexus when it does.
