Showtime1618 posted a topic in Explorer, Mountaineer, Sport Trac ForumI wish I found this website a while ago as there is a ton of great information on it. My 2000 Ford Focus is starting to go downhill and my wife and I have decided to buy a new Explorer Limited 4WD. I have several questions concerning the pricing of what USAA has "guaranteed" and what the dealership is charging. I live in Fort Rucker, AL which is about 1 hour south of Montgomery. The zipcode is 36116. Here are my questions: 1. They said they would honor all USAA Car Buying Service Savings. USAA computed the invoice as $37,217 but the dealer is using $37,417 and not applying the $200 guaranteed invoice reduction from USAA. Has anyone here worked with USAA as a dealer/customer and is this fee taken out when I pick up the vehicle? 2. I asked them about the customer loyalty discount of $1000 and they said I had to be part of the mailing list to receive this discount. The research on here and on Ford.com shows that my 2000 Ford Focus should allow me to receive this discount without trading it in. Any idea why I shouldn't receive this discount? 3. I have read different information concerning what rebates I will receive. I ordered the vehicle 12/8/12 and it won't arrive until january. Some forums say that I should be able to get a rebate "lock in" for when I ordered it and then choose whether to use those rebates or the rebates in January. Other forums say that you can't lock in rebates. Can anyone tell me where to focus my research to see if this dealership is one that can keep the current rebates available for me? I find it hard to believe that I can order a $45,000 vehicle, not be able to receive it until January and then be forced to use unknown rebates when I finally purchase it. 4. They are charging me, seperate of invoice, for the regional advertisement fee ($719.00) and fuel charge ($67.64). I thought these were required to be part of the invoice price since they can't change these from the factory. USAA also is using $660 for the regional advertisement pricing and they are using $719.00, is that correct for this area? What is the fuel charge? If that is merely a fee to fuel the Explorer then it better be rocket fuel... I appreciate everyone's help. I don't know if the salesperson just didn't know about these items or if he just didn't want to tell me. I filled out and signed the Buyers order form with a $500.00 deposit yesterday (12/8/12). I have until tomorrow morning to call them before they charge me for the order. Thanks!
Okay, I realize it is early but ...... The orders can be placed May 25 and I have just spec'd out a new Lariat. My guys say, wait and see. I get information faster here than my dealer. Does anyone have any idea what the rebates will be or when we may find out? I am out of the Pittsburgh region. I am trading my 2013 SD diesel with 46,800 miles on it so far. Great truck. New one will have 18" wheels with 3.31 locker. 2013 has 20" wheels with 3.55 locker. I just didn't want the chrome package and that gives you the nice 20" wheels. My optional 20" version was not to my liking. Didn't seem near as nice as the smooth version on the Platinum or King Ranch. -G
rnmscnor posted a topic in Ford Motor Company Discussion Forumhi, I purchased an Edge a couple of years ago. My hubby would like to purchase a Fusion. I remember receiving a mailer that has a coupon on it to apply to a future purchase. Unfortunately I can not fine it. Are there any additional coupons, incentives, rebates for current owners of a Ford? Does anyone remember gettting a mailer with a coupon on it? Are there any other programs out there that will assist me in saving some money, while at the same time, purchasing a great safety car. Thank you
