Is this your first new car purchase?
Paying below invoice on a new car such as a 2010 Taurus is very realistic. As I stated earlier the price you piad is moot because it is what you purchased that matters.

Ok, if you say so. Go to a dealer and offer them a price below invoice with 0% financing and see how far you get. And i have bought many cars and in my early years sometimes paid too much. But not this time. Some people just have to stick to their opinion even when they know they are wrong.

Edmunds on this site show the 2010 Taurus TMV (what others are paying) at just about 2% under MSRP, or about $2000 over invoice!

"Go to a dealer and offer them a price"
This could be the problem...Not a good idea to "offer" a dealer a price....let the dealer make first offer.
Enjoy your car.

I like the way the Honda forum does this section. Here is an example: Accord DX all weather mats and alloy wheels. $19549.00 OTD Our tax rate is 6.5% in OH. Now that is info we can use. We really don't care about debating about under or over invoice. I was getting ready to leave for the dealer back in 08 and someone posted the example above and I saved a addition $600.00 from a deal that I worked weeks on. Just a thought.

Consumer Reports came out and gave a less than stellar review of the "new" Taurus in this month's magazine.

Consumer Reports lost credibility with me long ago when they recommended the Nash Rambler.

Maybe less than stellar, but still recommended.

Anyone who pays $$ over invoice is getting a bad deal and not doing their homework. Dealers allot of $$ selling at invoice for there is something called 'holdback' that dealers get on every car that provides at least 600.00 per Taurus and they also get volume discounts, end of the quarter money from Ford ect. A Taurus will loose allot re: resale value vs, other foreign car makers in this class.. even though ' foreign cars' are made in the US. An Accord vs a Taurus re: resale value? No contest, hence take that into account when buying. You can get the invoice price including hold back if you purchase a 'new car' subscription from Consumer Reports, I believe they are approx. 3 months in length and about 40.00.. well worth the money to be informed
