I had the X-Plan from my work, purchased a 2007 on Christmas 2007. I had a low budget to work on, and got an extra $2K rebate for the 2007 as compared to the 2008, and I plan to keep it 10+ years, so 1 model year really won't make much of a difference in resale in 2020.
This is an AWD SE, the only thing I really wanted that I didn't get were the 18" wheels. Has the Sat stereo system, no nav system, but they are so cheep as an external device (I actually have one on my Windows Mobile 6 HTC pocket PC phone). But with the X-Plan pricing, all of the instant dealer rebates, AND a $750 mail in rebate I got from Ford a few months before, I ended up in the $21K range.
I just got done adding the factory fog lamps myself (about $300 in parts from Ford + a little extra for the wiring). The SEL emblem was under $10! So now it looks like a $10K more vehicle than what I actually paid!
I love the awsome torque & horse power from the 3.5L (more than the crown vic 4.6L V8) and the AWD traction of course. This replaced an Aerostar XLT 4.0L AWD Extended mini-van (the largest and most powerfull mini-van ever made, even more so when I changed it to a 5.0L!).
I have no regrets at this time, wasn't paying attention on the highway onec and had it running 105MPH, and seemed like 70. I have owned Fords all my life, some family used to work there as an engineer. Also own a few older Mustangs, an expensive hobby.
I hope you enjoy your Edge as much as I do!!!
#50 of 196 PLEASE TELL ME GOOD DEAL ON FORD EDGE LEASE
Mar 13, 2008 (11:03 pm)
The '08 EDGE I am looking at has a sticker of $38755 I would like to lease it for 39 OR 24months at 12k/year. What (with 3000 OOP) should I expect to pay per month after negotiating a price? Also, after a price is negotiated how (based on Ford's current lease rates) do you determine the exact lease price?
Thank you! I'm planning on leasing one this week.
ALSO HAVE X PIN AND TRADE OF ANOTHER MAKE CAUSE I THINK THEY GIVE YOU 1000 FOR TRADEANY OTHER MAKE

AND a $750 mail in rebate I got from Ford a few months before,
I tried to get one of the 750 rebates but have been unsuccessful. I went to the Ford site a month ago to request a brochure since that is how others have received theirs. Not receiving one I called their marketing and promotion center to ask if they still have the extra rebate for my area. No success.
I will probably get one a month after I buy the Edge.

Why would you be expecting a rebate in the mail? The $6,500 rebate I got for my Mercury Grand Marquis was deducted from the price.

The certificate for a $750 rebate is apparently an extra rebate Ford has sent to some potential customers who contacted Ford asking for a brochure. I did not obtain one when I signed up for a brochure a month ago. The $750 rebate certificate according to the people who received them and purchased a Ford used them immediately to lower the price of the Ford.
#54 of 196 $750 special mailed rebate possible +x-plan
Mar 25, 2008 (9:48 pm)
I have x-plan pricing and am looking to use it on an Edge lease. I also got one of those $750 teaser mailers, but it says in fine print that it can only be combined with public offers and not private or A/Z/D pricing. It doesn't say A/Z/X/D--do you think they can be combined?
Also, do I still have to pay the $595 lease origination fee with x-plan, or just the <$75 documentation fee? thanks in advance

Rob - yes you can use it. I did. Mine was 3 yr 45,000 mile lease I also used the X-plan. No lease origination fee in my deal. Sticker $34,935. Paid $3000 total out of pocket which included the first month payment. Payments are $389 after the rebates, taxes and fees. Just as a matter of fact. When I got the car, It was a Saturday, the mail just arrived with another $500 off in addition to all other deals, etc. My dealer was not familiar with this coupon and it looked original but it had no offer plan number on it. Nonetheless, I am still waiting for my $500.

#57 of 196 Need help on a quote for '08 Edge
Apr 18, 2008 (2:38 pm)
Here's a quote I got from a dealership in NY.
A 2008 Edge Limited, AWD without any options would be $29957.00 beforeTax and other doc fees.
I think the price is bit high considering some people got a loaded model (Navi+Vista roof) for around $31000. Im gonna offer $28000 for this model. is this number reseanable or am I off too much?
#58 of 196 2008 Ford Edge
May 19, 2008 (4:58 pm)
I've seen postings in the forum about the $750 coupon on the Edge if you request a brochure and I'm happy to say that I just received mine in the mail over the weekend. I just requested the brochure less than 2 weeks ago. Does anyone have any guess about what the June incentives/rebates are going to be like? The May one's run out on 5/21.
