#82 of 197 how to price the 08 new edge
May 26, 2009 (6:11 pm)
I was contacting a dealer with NEW 08 ford edge. msrp at 31xxx, the dealer offer 24xxx(include 4500$ rebate). I do not know how to pricing it since if I put 20 miles in KBB for 2008 ford edge, the retailer price is 25xxx, but with 4500 rebate, I think 20k is a fair value. how do you guys think. I know it is strange to judge NEW and USED here

We've found a 2009 Edge locally that's the EXACT color and package we want, just over 24K miles and just under $19K. Pinch me - am I dreaming? Is this something I should JUMP on, or is there a reason this message list has been quiet for a year? Are these cars all they are cracked up to be, or was it a lot of bark for little bite?

We bought a 2008 Limited in September of 2008 (see earlier posts) and are very happy with it. We've had no problems, except that the A/C could be more powerful. Other than that, it's been great. Very comfortable ride, quiet, and we get a lot of positive feedback on its looks (black with optional 20" chrome wheels). We have everything on it, except AWD. For about 2/3 the price of a Lexus RX350, yeah, we'd buy it again!

Just signed the papers on a 2010 Edge Limited, White Plat. Tricoat with Cargo Package (power liftgate) and roof rails for 29,007 OTD. MSRP was 34,640 plus 343 for doc. fees and theft protection packate which is 34,983.
I got invoice 30,416 plus Wht Plt Tricoat 421, cargo pkg 472, roof rails 81, dest fee 775, gas fuel charge 13, FDAF/LMDA assessment 503, and doc fee/theft protection 343 which puts it at 33,024.
Minus 3,000 rebates and 1,017 in dealer holdback for 29007. It hasnt even hit the lot yet. There must be some nice hidden incentives from ford unless im missing somehting???? Anyone think i can do better cuz i havent taken possession of the vehicle yet so its not to late, i think.

I purchased a 2008 Edge SEL AWD in very good condition at Riverside Ford on Aug 15th in Sumner, WA. So far, I'm very happy with it. The price listed on the car was $23,995., however, they had it posted on the internet for $19,995. which is what I paid. The dealership was fair on my trade in, and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
#88 of 197 2010 Edge SEL
Aug 30, 2009 (6:44 pm)
Just bought loaded SEL before the Cash for Clunkers ended for my Mom for $500 under invoice less $2,500 incentive plus $299 Admin Fee from Classic Ford in Columbia, SC. Made the deal in 10 minutes after telling them I could get that deal from USAA Car Buying Service - it was the only Edge with Navigation in SC.
#89 of 197 Will the dealer give you price?
Sep 15, 2009 (2:33 pm)
I test drove a 2010 Edge SE, liked it, was very interested in it. The salesman would NOT give me a price, even a ballpark figure, if I was not going to buy that minute. He said he would not have me shop the price around for the best deal.
My immediate thoughts are: 1) the dealer expects his offer to be beat and 2) he does not want the opportunity to earn my business.
I have owned Fords in the past and have had the same issues when buying. Is this the way they are trained to do business?
On the flip side, Honda bent over backwards when I purchased my Odyssey 7 years ago. I found it to be the easist car purchase I've ever made. Unfortunately, the CR-V is a 4 cylinder......

sounds like you got an inexperience saleman or that he thinks he's good at playing mind games. anyway, it's his loss.

If a salesman refuses to give you a price, ask to speak with the sales manager directly. If the sales manager says the price is "only good today", ask to speak with the general manager. If the GM won't give you the respect every legitimate customer deserves, thank him for his time and tell him that you now fully understand why the American car industry is going down the tubes. Then go buy the CR-V which will cost less than the Edge, cost less to maintain, and return more on your investment when you sell it. You might also want to think about using an online buying service where you won't even have to deal with the wolves until you pick up the car (then just say "No" to everything but would you like me to show you how the memory seats work?")
Just as an aside, the CR-V is getting 18 more horsepower next year,
