#166 of 211 Any advice on these quotes and how much better can I do?
Jun 02, 2010 (9:50 am)
These are out-the-door prices for a 2010 Flex SEL with Vista Roof and FWD
33,569 (Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Steel Blue, Vista), 33,963(Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Sterling Grey, 33,832 (Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Steel Blue, Vista) 35,995 (Cinn Metallic, Rapid Spec 207A, Vista, Two TOne Roof)
I have an additional $750 coupon from Ford. Suggestions. All my offers have been refused by each dealer. I've offered 32,350 OTD. I live in NJ so sales tax is 7% (ouch!)

I used the Costco Auto Program and got a great deal. No haggling, no usual dealer runaround. If you're not a Costco member, Overstock.com has a program. I haven't used it, but friends have and they were happy. If that doesn't appeal, if you can wait until the end of the month, head over to the dealer and try again. There are a lot of cars on dealer lots near me and they're paying vig to hold them. At the end of the month you might get enough leverage if they are trying to meet their sales target...

Not even broken in yet. although the warranty ends at 36k, the time begins on the date of the sale. If you like it, and it is showroom perfect, no dings, or other blemishes, good deal.

Just got a 2011 Ford Flex SEL FWD with 3.5 L. Options were white platinum metallic paint ($495) and convenience package (Rapid Spec 202A) ($2500)

Got 2.9% 60 month loan
Paid $29,000 plus tax and title, which here in Los Angeles is alot!

Thanks, acdii. I bought my 2010 Flex SE (Tux black w/ Silver Ingot roof) w/ remote starter, tow package, roof rails, and SYNCH for $4850 under invoice ($29,826). This doesn't include full KBB value for a beat up Nissan Quest minivan that was on its way out. Negotiated an extra 1,000 miles warranty and 2 free oil changes. Couldn't get them to budge on the doc fee of $295, so I had to get something in return.
#175 of 211 Hitch install price

I could not find the exact model SEL Ecoboost I wanted. I wanted one without the Vista, but with the split second row, roof rails and towing package. Well the one I got doesnt have the roof rails or towing package.
Optioned with the tow package adds $570, I priced out having the dealer install one and its under $500, but a few items are left out, such as the extra cooler and a relay kit. If you want to tow with it, I recommend getting the tow package, installing it later will cost more then the $570 option. I also dont know if sway control is built into the AWD Ecoboost, or if its added with the tow package.
Oh I also noticed you can no longer get it in Cinnamon and the park assist is no longer part of the Ecoboost package.
So if you are looking for an SEL Ecoboost with tow in Cinnamon, and find one, get it now, you wont be able to in the 2011 models.
