5 Star gave me very little discount when I tried to purchase a truck that had on lot for 3 months. Turned out to be great as I got more options at a better price with a special order.I went with Star Ford down in Glendale.
X-Plan is a simple formula. It’s .996 times invoice price plus $275. That worked out to around $40 below invoice for my truck. That also works out to a little more than 6 percent off of MSRP.I don’t know how much x plan discounts msrp but it’s my understanding if you use x plan you are locked into the price. You should at least be able to negotiate 6 percent off sticker.
Thanks for this tip! Saved me from waiting 6 months to a year for the market to normalize before buying.I see you live in Washington. I live in Kirkland (we seem to be holding the Oly and Seattle scum off for now...). Anyway, go see Brian C. at Korum or Steve C. at Ford of Kirkland. They are both solid and they will take care of you. Both gave me great service, and I ended up buying from Steve mainly for convenience and because I got a few bucks better than X plan.
Bickford's lot is littered with Tremors. I has a nice conversation with the sales guy there and he said they'd do an X plan order only if I ordered a truck. Fair enough. But the reception with Brian and Steve was cooler (in a good way)...
