Deals on the 2012 Ford Focus Should Get Better Soon

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.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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 / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.
