The Graduate posted (post # 45 above) the following: In other words you should get $4000 off Invoice not MSRP. It looks like he bought the same car/options you are looking at.(Ford is giving the dealers $2000 in addition to the $2000 customer rebate on each car.)
2008 Ford Taurus SEL, Silver Birch over Stone, 21 miles on the vehicle.

I know that there was dealer cash (not rebates) through June 30, but I don't know if it carried through to July or not.

Local ford dealer seems to insist that there's no manufacturer-to-dealer cash on 2008 Taurus which they are aware of.... Are they trying to take me for a ride?...

I know there WAS cash until June 30th. Ford may not have extended it into July; I honestly don't know, since our deal was done before that went away three weeks ago.
Sorry I'm not more help. My only suggestion is to try and beat the price with a different dealer. Request a no-haggle quote with the price-broken down into their price for the Car - Rebates + TTL.

Thank you for your help, I appreciate it! Just trying to see if anyone knows about current ford-2-dealer cashbacks...

This forum stays pretty quiet (trust me, I was in the same boat you were a little while ago! Hopefully more people will wake up!
Feel free to check out the mainstream large sedans comparison as well. It has a lot of owners of Tauruses and its competitors.

Looking at both the Taurus and Sable. Best research indicates a $1500 rebate, $500 Bonus cash and $2000 owner loyalty cash if you own a Ford, Mercury or Lincoln. Also, the metro ATL area now has lots of off-rental 2008 Taurus being advertised in the high-teens, very low-twenty's. Seems like a lot of car for the money, was ready to pull the trigger on a Mazda 6 but the Taurus offers much more room, power and refinement for about the same $$$.

Rental abuse is the only thing in question. When my folks could get a brand-new Taurus, similarly optioned to an off-rental 20k mile Taurus, for only $3,000 more, they took the new one in a heartbeat.

Dale Jarrett Ford near Charlottre NC is advertising the 2008 Taurus at $7000 off MSRP on their web page. Just Google Dale Jarrett Ford and click on specials.
There is fine print hocus pocus that would take some of that away. (Military, College, etc rebates.)
As far as the Ford to dealer cash, it may be date, regional or specific dealer related. I suspect the above $7000 off contains some Ford to dealer cash.
