Deal of the Week: 2010 Ford Flex
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.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
