Ford Offers Incentives to Clear Leftover Inventory
Ford recently announced new incentives to flush out the remaining 2010 model year inventory.
In addition to its regular cash-back programs, they've added an extra "Promotional Retail Bonus Consumer Cash" program to cap a final round of incentives for the year.
The most attractive deals are on the outgoing Ford Focus, which gets $3,000 cash back on the 2010 and 2011 model years.
Ford's outgoing 2010 Edge has $4,000 cash back, $1,000 of which is a dealer incentive that you may have to squeeze out of your dealer.
The 2011 Ford Fiesta has 5.9% financing for 60 months to qualified buyers, which is better than last month's 8.9% for 72 months.
All 2010 Ford model year vehicles are offered with 0% financing for 36 months. Most of these incentives are effective until Jan. 3.
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.
