not bad ...
It's not "brand new" though, it's been bought and driven off the lot so it's technically used. The guy bought it a month ago and it's got 600 miles on it. You'd have to be darn near stupid to buy a new car and sell it a month later though... I'd think it's be worth a bit less with people saying the value of the car drops 1/3 just driving it off the lot. I know where a new molten orange car is with all options and dealer installed tint with several hundred less miles on it for $23,995 (orange costs more than black by about $500) and it's been sitting on the lot since at least December so I'm sure you could talk them down further. I'm sure there's more cars like that that have been sitting on the lot mainly because most FiST owners tend to order their cars. So I wouldn't say that deal is great.
Didn't you just trade a 2014 1.0L fiesta to get this ST?
On top of the reasons to buy new, there are events that can really heat up a used car market - most notably, the cash for clunkers program, which removed a large number of used cars from the market over the short term. Also Hurricane Sandy put upward pressure on prices in the Northeast while lots of people were replacing their flooded/totaled cars.
So look at all the factors. On the one hand, it might not be unreasonable to ask a near-new price for a used car, given the possible shortage of used cars at any given time and place. On the other hand, it might just be smarter to pick up a brand new car when the used one costs nearly as much... possibly more when TCO is factored in.
"darn near stupid"
I guess I shouldn't be surprised someone would post something like this, and then post an alternative vehicle...
Perhaps the dealer will toss in a 7 year 100k premium care warranty too.
