Hi all, Expert car buyers, I wanted your opinion on a sale negotiation. I negotiated down to a certain price for a 2014 Ford Fiesta ST to order Saturday. Today my salesman called me to let me know that he got notice that 2014s are no longer for sale and that I would have to order a 2015 with a wait time of approximately 16 weeks(yup not a typo, go 'head and chuckle). Saw my priority setting was at 19. I go into the dealership after work and find out that the negotiated price from Saturday, the salesman conveniently forgot my $500 ford private cash after I dropped that bomb on him. After a reminder he said ok. Now my end sale price would be 2X,XXX - qualifying rebates at time of delivery and - ford private cash considering my private cash has not expired during delivery. I'm sure that is ok but I have read elsewhere that other ford dealerships are able to lock down the point of sale price including current rebates and non expired ford cash at the time. He is saying that isn't possible. Now this really bothers me. When you consider there is a strong chance that if I'm getting one of the first 2015 models, at the time of delivery, there is a strong chance that if there are any rebates at all, it will be to move old 2014 stock and not include new 2015 inventory. I was uncomfortable with this($1000 floating in the air) and he wanted me to sign right then so I made the decision to leave. What are your thoughts and opinions? Has anyone here had success locking down rebates/ford private cash during point of sale? Thanks for your time.
