As they said in Latin "Degustibus non est disputandum" (which is as close as I can get without looking it up!)
When I was checking out new rides for my boss, her exact quote was "What the h&ll is that!!??"
I realized I wouldn't be getting her a Flex, no matter how much I liked it. She was coming out of a 2006 Odyssey.
33,569 (Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Steel Blue, Vista), 33,963(Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Sterling Grey, 33,832 (Rapid Spec 206A, Tow, FWD Steel Blue, Vista) 35,995 (Cinn Metallic, Rapid Spec 207A, Vista, Two TOne Roof)
I have an additional $750 coupon from Ford. Suggestions. All my offers have been refused by each dealer. I've offered 32,350 OTD. I live in NJ so sales tax is 7% (ouch!)
Trade: 2005 Nissan Quest - $8500 -KBB value is only $7875
Selling Price: $17,056 - will pay cash. No special APR
However, it has 1200 miles on it. Told counts as new because it was never registered.
Deal or no deal?
MSRP was $34,645
There was a $1000 leather discount and $2500 back from Ford and I put down $12,500 downpayment.
Got 2.9% 60 month loan
Paid $29,000 plus tax and title, which here in Los Angeles is alot!
Optioned with the tow package adds $570, I priced out having the dealer install one and its under $500, but a few items are left out, such as the extra cooler and a relay kit. If you want to tow with it, I recommend getting the tow package, installing it later will cost more then the $570 option. I also dont know if sway control is built into the AWD Ecoboost, or if its added with the tow package.
Oh I also noticed you can no longer get it in Cinnamon and the park assist is no longer part of the Ecoboost package.
So if you are looking for an SEL Ecoboost with tow in Cinnamon, and find one, get it now, you wont be able to in the 2011 models.
Car was 'used' - having 6000 miles on it.
Purchased from The Sharpe Collection in Grand Rapids.
I arranged the purchase on the phone, and they drove 2 hours to meet me 1/2 way, with all the paperwork ready.
Overall a good buying experience - Hope to have the same with the car.
Go to fordflexforum.com and search X plan, there is a thread there with more information on the X plan. Review the pricings there to get an idea if you are getting a good deal. If the price is below what the X plan is, decent deal.
X plan on a 2011 Flex Limited is $34,889, add in options to get the total cost of the package.
When I bought mine I found a link to the actual invoice pricing current at the time that listed each options cost, so after adding it up I came to the exact cost for the car I wanted, and then negotiated down from there. I never mentioned X plan, just my ball park figure, which was below the actual base line I was looking for. I also dealt via email and found that to be the perfect medium for negotiating. The dealer cant see your face. What I like about X plan, it gives you a good starting point, never go above it, instead use it as a wild card.

Is this a good deal in Southern CA?
If you have a copy of the sticker, check the base price before options, if it is $37,845 the invoice is $35,249 -$750 holdback. Add in the options to that, and see where it sits. I did a quick check, but it doesn't list 300a, so not knowing exactly what it has, all I can get is a ballpark. A FWD Limited with the Vista, MSRP $40,115 Invoice $37,805 Bottom line price, $34,985. This price includes the incentives of $2500. Get the price anywhere near that and you did good. Main goal, -5000 below sticker.
CR Build and Buy program, it will list participating dealers near you.
It's the best car I've ever owned... and I've had Mercedez CLK 430, 2 BMW 530s', Saab900Turbo, Ford F150 & Ford Explorer, 1970 Mercedez 200SEL and 1973 Chevy Nova SS...
I'm looking to trade my 2009 for a 2011 with the EcoBoost... Ford of Bellevue WA BEGGED me for my Flex so they could have it for Used car inventory, but they were JERKS about financing a new one... So I'm going Back to Santa Monica Ford in LA!!!!
I suggest that you don't buy a car that you did not see! When I complained that the car that they sold to me is not what I have expected...they said they will find me a different car. They found a "DEMO" car that has 6000 miles on it ...Demo means used car!!! Right?
They sold it to me on a MSRP price....they wanted me to exchange my brand new car to a used demo car and the most ridiculous thing that they said because the demo car comes with a little more option ..... I need to pay $5000.00 more!!! Selling a used car on MSRP price is NOT acceptable at all! And trying to Rob your customer is even more NOT acceptable in any angle!
I just financed with them a brand new car for $60,000.00 and they wanted me to pay more for a demo car!!!
I got tired arguing and going back & forth...I just told them that I will just keep my brand new unwanted car....I wanted a bucket seats in the 2nd row because I drive 4 children to school everyday and they are in car seat! They gave me a car with a bench seat!!!! I clarified it with the Sales man and he said he did not remember me saying that I need a bucket seat car.....I am so mad!!! Why will I forget the very reason of me to buy a new car!
I need a car that is convenient and has an interior of a minivan that I don't have to fold the middle chair back & forth!
My husband called sync support, they tried to tell him how to fix it but apparently they have a problem on it that they can't figure out...Don't waste your money.
I paid $49,000 for mine fully loaded and the total amount I financed is $60,000.00....it's a big waste.
3 days old, its giving me problem already...I don't know what will happen next. Try other options.....if you have a big family try mini vans.
I saw a deal for a new 2010 Ford Flex Limited w/Ecoboost, Navigation with Sync, Park Assist, DVD player (Headrest) , Vist Roof, Trailer Package, Remote Start. ePrice 36.7K , is it a good price ? i have checked the VIN with another ford dealer and he confirmed it is new and clean. Should i bargain more ?
Sticker price is $48290 + $770 (delivery)
So my question is with a car that surely seems like it would take a long time to sell, what kind of a price should I expect to buy this car for?
Thanks - And, Wow over a year since the last Flex purchase question?
