nah, I bought it used from a dealer. So I guess I can scratch that. Well at least I can get the Costco. Thanks for the info, you seem like a very nice guy. If only I lived near your dealer I could buy from you.
Swath, you are correct. The rules state that ALL returning leases for 2010 are entitled to Loyalty. Glad it paid off for you!! Always to keep after them.Just picked up the wifes new 11 GT convt today and got the Costco discount. Also as it was Z plan we had to have my mom on the doc's and her lease is up in November. No certificate in the system so she called C/S. Got a bs response from them till she said "how much more loyal does it take then owning 17 Fords!". Asked for the C/S manager and had a certificate issued 5 minutes later. Just becasue you're not in the system does not mean you can't get one!
Redoh, that would definitely be a good buy!!! Not sure if rates vary by Province, but the best I could get you is 5.89 through BMO. It's open and a fixed rate up to 84 months on 05's to 11's. It's Dealer Plan so you'd have to go through the dealership. Usually a couple points lower than a bank branch personal loan. I just did a truck for a guy in Ottawa, and his Caisse Populaire gave him 8.54. He took the BMO loan for 5.49. Ford Credit is at 7.99 on Trucks. Yikes!!tmodem; You said you can get a good rate through BMO is on used, new or both? And is in any dealer that can have that or is it from dealer to dealer or a province thing? I' asking because my dealer has a pretty nice 2010 V6 fully loaded with glass roof and that would make a sweet rind untill my next stang. I kinda wanted to wait for a 50th in 2013-2014.
Thanks for the help.
Unfortunately, Ford is really rigid when it comes to the rules. I have had to make many calls to Dealer Services, to get "exceptions" to those rules. I find that if you're falling in a "gray" area, then they will bend a bit more. I get Books of PDF's, of these rules all the time. It is brutalSo tmodem, Ford coprorate views "loyalty' differently, depending on WHICH Ford you own? One would think if you own ANY Ford and are buying a new car, Ford would gladly offer you an incentive to stay in the family.
Went through this shopping for the 2010 Sonata. You could get a "loyalty" rebate of $500 on the 2011, but not a new "leftover" 2010. I actually Googled the VP of sales and called him, got his assistant. I suggested that Hyundai didn't really value loyal owners (we have two in the house) if they gave a "loyalty" for one new Hyundai but not another.
I was authorized a "friendly" $500 rebate from the zone office within two days.
It grinds me that I own a Ford, and want to buy another one over that Hyundai, but because I have an older Escort, they don't deem me "loyal enough".
