#89 of 196 Will the dealer give you price?
Sep 15, 2009 (3:33 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,

Ordered 09 SEL from Ford today, just realized that the price list from dealer is 31993.85+tax, but it is before 3000 rebate , I think it should be 28933.85+tax. Am I right?

just find out in NYS, you pay tax before rebate. When I was in PA, it is different. NYS sucks !!

On the Nav/Dvd issue, ford sells the unit with dvd installed. The Dvd disk never has to be removed. Its a touch screen,nav system. Why would u remove the dvd disk. All of my customer love theirs.

Just purchased 2010 Ford Edge in St Louis last week:
Sale price 31852
Had a trade of 2003 Dodge Stratus 78k miles Gave 5000 for it on paper.
I think they overallowed about $1000 for it.
Interest rate 4.69%
Easy deal at Dave Sinclair Ford in South County. Great Car.
