The price of any car can go higher only if you guys bid them up.

I tend to buy after the initial buzz calms down.

I usually just ask for the invoice and agree to pay $200 over invoice - rebates.

Invoice on my car was $38154.52 - $500 (switch rebate) + $200

I paid $37854 for my 2015 Premium PP w/Nav. The dealer has 3% hold back on invoice and gets survey money from ford. No need to ever pay near MSRP.

I'm currently shopping for a 2015 GT Premium Coupe and used True Car (curiosity mostly) and got 3 offers ranging from $1400 under MSRP to $4600 under MSRP.

The $1400 was actually an error and should have been $3400 under MSRP. X-Plan is actually more. I'm not having any issue getting $4k off a $38k MSRP car.

I did have one dealer tell me about "two invoices" which immediately caused me great concern. I asked for a quote and he wanted me to come in to get that "great" price. I welcome him to 2015 and the age of the Internet and told him to send me the quote or piss off.

I'm a bit surprised at the kind of deals available for the new model year. And this is with only $500 customer cash and $500 military rebate. So.. basically $3500 off with a $500 kicker some folks might not get. I do need to sign up for the American Quarterhorse Assocation, however. That's worth another $500, IIRC. Request a brochure from Ford (mailed) and you get a chance at another $750 off. (Not everyone will get it.)

I think the thread is old and dated and should probably be closed unless someone has recent price gouging information.

With that, I have a 2011 V6 I'd like to sell for about $34k. It's in the expensive Kona Blue color and it's an MCA -- RARE! (Actually my build is very rare but whatever... it's still a 2011 Mustang V6. I'll negotiate a little. LOL)

I sold a 2011 GT 5.0 Brembo with 15K miles for $24K.

So... is that an offer?

How did you feel about that price? Was that trade-in or private party?

Mine has 45k with the remainder of an extended warranty (up to 100k, I believe.)

I was very happy with it, and it is what it is. I paid $30,797 on 9-21-10.



It was a great car that never went to a shop. I did the regular maintenance. I just traded to another car.

I have a few more cars that I have kept for over 15 years. I believe the 2015 Mustang is better than the 2011.

I remember in 2005 when I was looking to buy the new model I was in Charlotte NC for a monthly meeting and stopped by Yarborough Ford and they would not take the x-plan and laughed at me.....I ended up buying one Two weeks later in Myrtle Beach with the X-plan.

Can I ask where that was offered? I am in San Antonio too and am currently pricing different dealers.
