    I currently have a 05 GT on order, it was ordered back on June 4th. The dealership reports that the status shows the car build and released to convoy for over two weeks. I have heard two stories; one is that there was a problem with the V-8s and they had to hold them up; the other is that some dealers are receiving the GT V-8s. So which is correct?

    Received 1k off msrp. Bought from Garnet Ford in Chadds Ford, PA. Very nice people, easy deal, no weird fees or surprises. Give them a call and help dealerships that want your business succeed.
  • In Oakland, CA, I just bought a beautiful mineral grey gt with interior upgrade, side airbags, shaker 500. I probably paid a little too much,(it was an impluse buy). I went in to order one and saw this one sitting there, someone had just back out of the deal. I paid 1,500 over dealer invoice and didn't look back. It is a wonderful car!
  • Gt V-8's on the lot in Louisville, Ky.....
    Gt with a $27,650 sticker selling for $26,050..a-plan $24,458
    V-6 with a $22,365 sticker selling for $21,286..a-plan $19853

    Nice to see some a-plan prices. I'm waiting for the ragtop GT to show up. We have A-plan and look forward to seeing the new convertible in the spring.

    Through my employer, we are eligible for x-plan pricing. What type of discount can on expect?
  • Sorry if this question is to obvious, but what is A-plan pricing?
  • whats the best price anyone found for an 05 gt deluxe in pa, nj, or de???
  • I'm looking to buy a 2004 V6 coupe. So far I have not found a great deal on one. One dealer is still charging $600 over invoice, abd they have a lot of '04s in stock. Just wondering if anyone else is having trouble getting a good deal?
  • 600 over invoice is not bad....if it was 600 over MSRP, thats a different story.

    Here in the NW Milwaukee WI area there are plenty of 04s still left as well including the dealership 2 miles from me that has 3 Roush GTs

    Has anyone bought a 05 GT in the SE Wisconsin or NE Illinois area? If so what did you pay?

    I WILL be getting one (redfire Premium GT), but I will never pay MSRP or over!
  • A-plan is what employee's and their families can buy new vehicles for although I have heard of dealers selling aplan to the public at years end. Don't really know how they do it though as you need a pin number.
  • and xplan is roughly 4% above aplan

    Thanks Trucker50. What kind of discount is the A-plan?
  • Anyone lease a GT 5spd w/ Interior Upgrade pkg.? If so, what are your monthly payments?
  • sticker $31470.00
    invoice $27931.35
    x-plan $27865.32
    a-plan $26649.32....a-plan is I think 4% under invoice though I've never done the math, also tax and license is typically all you have to add as doc. fee's etc are waived. On certain vehicles you can sometimes get some of the holdback money back too but don't expect any off the Mustang,at least for a while
  • I just came from the dealer where I pulled the trigger and ordered my premium redfire 5 speed GT. Got the interior upgrade package, side airbags, antitheft, and upgraded rims. Paid $1550 under MSRP. Very pleased overall.

    Overall the experience was really good. They were pretty down to earth and were flexible on price. I would imagine though it helps that winter is fast approaching and I am located in the Milwaukee area.

    They told me that I should be taking delivery in January...nothing more specific than that.
  • Hello. Has anyone had any good or bad experiences in buying an 05 GT in the DC Metro area, and could you recommend the dealership? I'm considering a GT, but after such a great experiance at Carmax, I'm dreading buying a car through a traditional dealer.

    Try Koons Ford in Falls Church...I get my servicing done there on my Mustang, and they've always treated me right. Excellent customer service, though I haven't actually bought a car from them, so that might be different.
  • Thanks, I'll check them out.
  • Today I went shopping for a new '04 Mustang to see what deals are out there. I went to one dealer in the Orlando, FL area that had a gigantic clearance event with up to 50% off. As soon as I pull in and park, a salesman was right in my face. He almost opened the door for me. I don't know about everyone here, but when I go to a dealership, I would like to look around first and get a feel of what they have, then be approached.

    So I find the car I like, and notice that they had an add on sticker, marking up the price by $900 over msrp. This is on the old '04 style Mustang. (BTW they wanted $3000 over msrp on the '05s)

    The salesman gets the key, and the car has a dead battery. I mean this one would not turn over when they tried jumping it. The engine compartment was dirty...in fact I saw an '03 used one at another dealership that looked a lot cleaner.

    So I find another Mustang that started up, and went for a test drive. That car drove ok and had no problems.

    Now before they would talk price, they had to enter my info (they even wanted my social sec. #, which I did not give them) into their computer system as a tracking guide. And they had problem with that. So finaly after wasting a lot of time, they ushered me into a office and started pressuring me into buying the car using that old saying "What will it take you to but this car today?" I felt real uncomfortable at this point. So I gave them a real low price, and they laughed at me. It was still above their 50% off price. So I walked.

    No wonder why they still have a large inventory of '04s left.
