#157 of 197 Ford Edge negotiation question
Apr 22, 2011 (12:48 pm)
I have an '07 Edge SEL and am looking at 2011 Edge. the dealer has a limited MSRP $43035, Invoice $40207 and the internet price is $37995. I haven't negotiated to buy my cars before and I'm not sure if the internet price is something that is negotiable or not? and if yes, what would be a reasonable offer to start?

I also thought that we would be very upside down. However, we are being offered $48,500 for the two vehicles. The MSRP on the SEL Edge is $35,585 and with Rebates, they are offering us the vehicle for $34,000. Any advice?

#160 of 197 Help on neg Edge lease!!
May 12, 2011 (5:26 pm)
I've been working on this deal for the better part of 2 weeks and I wanted some advice. Negotiating a lease on a edge SEL
$2750 in rebates
Money factor .5% (seems super low, this is NJ)
Residual - 64%
total out of pocket - $1000
Price per month-420
Does this sound reasonable? When I calculate the coat on the lease payment calculator using these figures I get a much lower monthly payment but then again, I'm $50 less than where I started with a much better equipped vehicle.
What do u think?? Thanks for all your help!
#161 of 197 Trade 2007 Edge for 2011 Edge
May 23, 2011 (10:11 am)
I have a 2007 AWD Edge SEL with 25,000 miles ( has heated seats,leather and vista roof). Generally has been a great car - a few problems such as replacing brakes at 22,000 miles and axle seal problem twice. I owe about $4700.00 on the car
I regret not getting the package with the back up camera but have lived w/out it for 3 years.Also I have a black one and really wanted the white tri coat but hey...the price was right on the 2007.
My husband has been encouraging me to look at a 2011 Edge - specifically with the Vision package and adaptive cruise control. I have resisted looking for several reasons...I am of the school of thought that you drive,drive,drive a car until you get to the point of outlay over value.
Having said this while I had my car in for an some maintenance work this weekend I saw a 2011 Edge Limited AWD(white tri color) with just about everything except the tow package. The car is listed as used ( it has 7100 miles on it) and it is $34,990.00 I believe new it would be $38,760.00.
I am actually considering buying it - the dealer said my trade is $18,500.00 ( I thought this was a tad south of where it should be but not substantially) So I have apprx 4700.00 left on my 2007 and the remainder of the purchase price (minus trade) is $16,490 and that brings my total out of pocket or out of pocket/finance amount to $21,190.00
If I buy this car I will likely not buy another car for 6-8 years. If I stay with my 2007 I MIGHT buy another car in 3 - 4 years ...mainly because of the increased technology on the newer cars.
I will finance part of this purchase (regardless if I buy now or several years down the road). I like to keep my monthly payments low (right now i am at $240.00) not because that is all I can afford but because that is what I am comfortable with.
Thoughts,suggestions? If i wait a few years my trade will be considerably less and the price of a new car will be higher so given that this car is slightly discounted because it is used does this represent a good deal and make sense? or should i just stay with what I have ( which will be paid off in about 19 months)

Correction to my message (2007 vs 2011) the MSRP on the 2011 I am looking at (used with 7100) miles is $42,820.00 and the used car is $34,990.00

I bought a 2011 ford edge with the camera. There are so many updates in the newer model that it really is a dream car. With the limited you will have the push to start. I got the vista sunroof and the cruise that automatically adjust to the speed in front of you. I would try to negotiate the price a little more, but I would seriously look at it. The 2011 also gets better gas milage.

#166 of 197 Bad experience with Planet Ford in Spring, Texas
Jun 14, 2011 (5:31 pm)
Was ready to pull the trigger on a deal for an Edge, but Planet Ford wouldn't honor the price they submitted by email. Anyone know a good Ford dealer in the Houston area where you've had a good experience? Thanks.
