Are we talking an '06 or an '07 Freestyle. Has it been previously titled? Was it wrecked during a test drive maybe?
If it's not previously titled, and it's never been wrecked, and they will sell it 10K under sticker (I doubt they would), then you should immediately shovel that foot of snow out of your driveway and rush down to your Ford dealer with checkbook in hand before they realize their mistake.

I believe it, but just be sure to read the fine print.
They'll probably add $600 in freight, $400 processing fee, plus add back the $400 military rebate you don't qualify for, plus the $500 recent college grad rebate you also don't qualify for, plus you'd have to finance through Ford Credit at a very high rate to get that price.
I do believe the $10k off list, but they'll make it up somewhere else. Car dealers aren't in the biz to lose money.
I bought a '91 Escort new, and got the college grad rebate, but not the military one. They added freight, processing fee, and tried to sign me at 12.5% interest.
I'm not saying don't buy it, just beware, that's all.

Hahah... thanks for the responses! Seriously! To answer questions though... I have no answers. I only spoke with the fella for about 3 minutes, most of which was BS speak that had nothing to do with cars at all. He said what he said, and I responded as indicated. I *think* we were talking about an '07 Freestyle SLT AWD, as that was what I told him I wanted to test drive in a prior email. Beyond that, I make no guarantees.
Were I interested in buying, numbers would have to get concrete real quick before I sat down to sign paperwork. Right now, I just want to drive the darn thing. In my mind, the CVT and reactive AWD are still low points. Like I said before, all the positive praise here has piqued my interest to try it out for myself. But, when I do drive it, I will ask him for an OTD price so as not to leave this conversation in limbo.
There are 5-6 other makes/models I want to drive as well. The Subaru would be perfect if it did not sound like it was going to start falling apart around me and they could get the moisture-in-the-lamps problem resolved. This is month 2... what will it be like in year 8?

Freestyle SEL, maybe? I've never heard of an "SLT" trim...

Oh, right. Sorry, it is SEL. Alphabet soup!
