Deal of the Week: 2010 Ford Flex
The Ford Flex has never quite flexed its muscles.
For 2009, its first full year on the market, Ford expected to sell 100,000, yet only 39,0000 were sold.
Sales for 2010 are down another 9% from that.
Why? Perhaps its polarizing styling, relatively high price, lack of utility or just the current economic climate.
But if you can overlook some of these deficiencies, you'll find a vehicle that's a stylish people carrier, with good incentives to boot.
Now through October 4th, 0% financing for 36-60 months, or $2,000 customer cash is available, plus $1000-$2000 in bonus cash.
For lease customers: $750-$1000 in lease cash. And $500 cash to recent college grads and members of the armed forces.
If you've had your eye on the Flex, now may be the best time to pull the trigger.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
