Ford Will Discontinue Mercury Brand Soon
After a 70-year run, Ford will be closing the doors on its Mercury Brand.
According to Edmunds Inside Line, "with sales down 74% since 2000, this news was certainly a matter of when, not if." Bloomberg reports the deathblow could come as early as July.
But bad news for Ford could be good news for you. If you're in the market for a new Mercury vehicle, like the 2010 Mercury Milan or Mountaineer, a short wait could bring big savings.
Attractive deals and incentives will most certainly be available as the brand winds down.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper 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.
