Ford Drops Sync Price by $100
Ford has just announced that they will be cutting the price of their Sync system by $100 on the 2012 Explorer and Edge models.
The Sync system allows you to make hands-free calls and control music and other functions with voice control.

No word on whether the price cuts will impact the cost of MyFord Touch, which is an optional system with Sync built into it.

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 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
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.
