Deals on the 2012 Ford Focus Should Get Better Soon

September 8, 2011

Those who have tried to buy the redesigned 2012 Ford Focus this summer have been disappointed by lack of inventory.

There are only about 7,500 cars on dealer lots - which equates to only about 2 Focuses for each Ford dealership.

Plain and simple, there just aren't enough of the cars available.

People are having a hard time locating preferred colors and options - and dealers certainly aren't willing to negotiate much on price.

Now for some good news - Ford has announced that a fresh batch of supplies will be heading to dealers this month.

There are 10,000 Focuses being shipped right now and another 30,000 are expected to hit dealer showrooms by November.

If you don't mind waiting, you'll get the best deals if you wait until the end of the year.

However, if you simply can't wait any longer, you'll at least have more colors and options to choose from over the next several weeks.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
