Ford Offering Great Incentives in February

February 11, 2010

Ford IncentivesNormally when you buy a car, you have to choose between cash back rebates and a low interest rate. Ford's new incentives for February allow buyers to have both.

Whether you choose to get a low percentage loan or cash back, Ford is offering a $1,000 promotional bonus in addition to either choice. The deal runs through February 28.

Small and medium size cars like the Focus and Fusion offer $1,500 cash back for 2010 models, while SUVs like the Expedition and Explorer come with $2,000 cash back. 0% APR is available for most models for a loan period of up to 36 months, with the SUVs leading the long term interest rates with a scant 1.9% for a 60-month term.

Interestingly, the Ford Ranger might be the best deal this month for buyers. A whopping $3,500 is available when one combines the cash back with the promotional award, for a vehicle which is generally cheaper than most mid-size sedans.

The venerable Mustang is light in cash back rebates, at only $500, but a 0% APR for qualified buyers on loans up to 60 months could be worth checking out.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
