Ford Offers 3 Free Payments on 2013 Vehicles
January 24, 2013Ford is offering some new deals on 2013 cars and trucks - including the Focus, Taurus and Fiesta - through its "3 Payments On Us" incentive program.
The program offers Retail Customer Cash worth approximately three monthly payments for each model line. Important to note buyers do not have to take financing through Ford Credit to take advantage of this offer, however, if purchasers do finance they will be responsible for making each monthly payment as it's due, so this is not really a "no payments for 90 days" program.
However, if you do finance through Ford, you may be eligible for extra cash savings, 0% APR or low-APR financing on certain models.
As always, I recommend using the free RydeShopper to get the biggest discounts possible on Ford vehicles.
|2013 Fiesta||Up to $1,500 cash savings or 0% APR for 60 months|
|2013 Focus*||Up to $2,500 cash savings or 0% APR for 60 months|
|2013 Escape||Up to $2,500 cash savings or 2.9% APR for 60 months + $1,000 cash back|
|2013 Explorer||Up to $2,500 cash savings or 2.9% APR for 60 months + $500 cash back|
|2013 Taurus||Up to $3,000 cash savings or 0% APR for 60 months|
*Excludes Focus S, ST and Electric
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.
