2013 and Earlier - Ford Escape Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    Good deal or not?

    Walked into dealership right after it closed. A salesman leaving offered a 2009 Tribute touring. 2.5L AWD. Sticker 25500. Said he would sell for 23,800 then would take another $3000 off for rebate. Puts it at 20,800. Is this a great deal or just average? Own a Ford -- would an Escape get me a better deal?

    How is this vehicle in the snow? Would I be better looking for the 3.0 L for snow driving?

    Would receive C4C rebate money on this vehicle for $3500.
  • Chicago - went to a dealer (Golf Mill Ford) yesterday and they refused to negotiate from MSRP on an Escape, needless to say I laughed and walked out. What a joke - avoid this dealer. ANyway, I am looking for an 09 black or black pearl XLT, cloth, 6cyl FWD or 4cyl 4wd (to take advantage of cash for clunkers), sun&sync or moon&tune...those are my only requirements. I was thinking invoice or a little less plus the $2500 Ford is offering, plus the $750 coupon Ford sent me, plus $4500 for cash for clunker.

    MSRP: $28,220 (6cyl, fwd, sun&synce, audiophile, leather, cargo)
    Invoice: $25,924 (does this include the $336 sun&synce disc and $500 v-6 disc?)
    Rebate: $2500, $4500, $750
    Total plus ttl: $18,200

  • Last February I bought an '09 iTouring Tribute from Performance Mazda in Houston. Love the truck, but the dealership went belly-up.

    Don't think I'll buy another Tribute because Mazda is changing the appearance to make 'em look more Japanese than does the current truck. Back to Ford next time.

    Boy, is this forum quiet!

    I just picked up a new Mariner Premier. 202A package and V-6.

    The 202A has moon & tune, automatic temp control, cargo package, and reverse sensing.

    List 30,010, I trade in my '02 Tribute. After the 2,000 cash back from Ford, I paid 23,000.

    Quite a difference from the 02. The new v6 is more powerful and quieter. I'm just beginning to learn all the electronic gimmicks.

    we bought an 09 escape limited and passed our 04 on to one of the kids.
    huge difference, same vehicle, but everything is better.
    i just renewed the sirius for 2 years.
    gas mileage is @22 for the new one versus 19 for the '04.

    I also was geting 19mpg on the old. So far, on the new I'm getting about 20, but it has less than 1,000 miles so it should improve.

    Do you notice the climate control staying on high for too long and then blowing cold air to compensate? It's weird. My Honda Pilot stays on high for just about 5 minutes and then blows warm air at low fan speed.

    Was looking at a 2010 FWD V6 Ford Escape. They only offered to give me $300 more for my trade in, they refused to offer anything off the MSRP. I walked out.
  • brianasbrianas Posts: 3
    limited, 4wd, v6, nav, 301a, steps, 17" wheels
    sticker 32,980
    best the dealer would come to 31,908
    invoice was 30,200
    seems like they could have done better,
    but no deal,
    we were there ready to buy, if they had done 30,900 we
    would have, but they said no
    drum hill ford, MA

    were we looking for an unreasonable deal?
  • kinsalekinsale Posts: 33
    Are they not offering $1000 off plus 0% right now? So they didn't offer you a penny from their own pockets? Is this SUV that popular right now?
  • mf15mf15 Posts: 158
    2010 xlt v6 awd sun and sync, 26,000 with tax tags. Xplan,2000 rebate,750 coupon.
    X plan not as good as it used to be they are now adding a 450 advertising fee.
    You can get the coupon, just go to the ford site and request a brochure takes about a week on email.
    Getting about 26mpg on the road,20-22 local.
    Car is better than our 05.
    My problem with Ford is they charged me 406 for a full size spare on a steel wheel.Not real happy about that,it was either included in the 05 or it was about 85 bucks.

    Got this offer on a 2010 Mariner Base FWD I4 with Sun and Sync, Rear Cargo Convenience and Amenities package.

    MSRP $25670
    Sell for $22900 (Includes $1500 marketing support from Ford)
    Deduct $2750 in rebates ($2000 Ford and $750 mailer)
    Total selling price : $20150
    Trade in Credit: $7000
    Total selling price: $13150
    6% sales tax: $795
    Dealer fees: $139
    Total deal: $14084
    Add trade balance owed: $5286
    Total financed: $19370

    3.5 % financing for 60 months is $352.26 per month.

    Dealer also offered at no charge the 3 year Ford ESP Maintenance plan. Think it's a good offer. Any thoughts?
  • Wow, this forum is inactive.

    Got this offer on a new Escape. Have not decided whether to pull the trigger, but this forum has been helpful to me so I thought I'd share:

    2011 Escape Limited, 4WD, V6, Limited Luxury package (rear camera/sensors, Sync, dual automatic climate control, moon roof, premium stereo)
    No navigation

    - MSRP $30,885
    - Dealer initially offered $27,200 (including current end of year $2000 Ford incentive)
    - I also got a Ford customer cash coupon of $750 in the mail after reading about it in one of these forums. I requested an Escape brochure from the Ford website and they mailed it to me with a $750 coupon in the back. The dealer took it off our final negotiated price.

    Therefore, final price (pre tax, title, etc) = $26,450

    I hope you bought it. I love all 5 of mine.

    Now it's July, What are you paying for 2011 Escapes this summer?
  • nvbankernvbanker Posts: 7,285
    Around $22,000 for basic 2WD, XLT, 4 cylinders, around 5,000 miles, if you can believe that. Escapes (and most Fords these days) are pricey.

    Limited 6 cylinders 4WD are about $25,000.

    Hybrids are about $30,000. Unbelievable, no?

    Frankly, you may as well buy a 2011 new.

    I am looking to buy a 2012 ford escape, either a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. What have others paid for this vehicle? How much below the invoice price can I try to get it for?
  • mrd134mrd134 Posts: 1
    Just bought a 2012 recieved 1500 off the sticker price, 2500 in rebates. Could have gotten another 750 but had no trade in

    Just ordered 2013 SEL in St. Louis---McMahon Ford who was so much better on price than 4 other Ford dealers. Beat my best price easily.
  • jdixsonjdixson Posts: 10
    Where was McMahons price relative to MSRP or Invoice?
  • al63017al63017 Posts: 149
    2000 off sticker but gave me 500 more for my trade. I found one Ford dealer Don Vance in Marshfield MO that had bigger discounts but gave me a little less for my trade so McMahon won. If you buy outright no trade--- Vance and McMahon would be good ones to compare. I guess I had 6 Ford dealers after all and 3 of 4 others were not competitive in how they discounted cars and valued my trade.
  • jdixsonjdixson Posts: 10
    Thanks. Sounds like your diligence found its reward.
  • We Purchaed a 2013 Escape Base model SE in Brite Silver, Sand Stone interior. We picked it up 2 weeks ago at Ultimate Ford in Mtn. Home, AR
    After haggleing I paid $22,996 including $1,000 off for a cash deal no trade.
    JJ a salesman at Don Vance called me later that same day and said I'll sell you the same model for $22,496 and deliver it to you 100 miles away. I stuck with the local dealer after giving him a deposit. Just a few miles from home for service. Had to wait 7 weeks from my order date.
    My take on the SUV is after 350 miles of driving, the 1.6 turbo is a perfect combo for us. Getting 30 to 33 mpg on the open road is a big plus.
  • Does this sound like a decent deal?

    AWD Titanium with Nav, Sunroof and Parking - $32,632 + tax + doc fee for $34,200 with a 1.79 interest rate.

    MSRP on it was $36.300
  • Hi all, I am seeking to purchase a 2013 Ford Escape S model. I got a price from one dealer: $22500 OTD (CA tax) and could not get more cut. It's a white one and with SYNC package. Any comments on this price?
