The one that said OK is probably a dealer that has a "standing" order that
hasn't been built yet so they could change it...
kind of like a reservation to build a car.
A local dealer was going to do for that for me except I found what I wanted at
another dealer...since I'm an employee's daughter they wouldn't dealer trade
for it. Linda
Well, I got my answers. I called the Ford factory. Apparently, dealers can
order only so many of each vehicle. They are actually on allocation. I
found out the last 2003 Focus will be built 3 October. They said on 6
October they are building their first 2004. Very few changes. I ended up
ordering the Focus ZTW yesterday. They are honoring the $3000 rebate as
long as I ordered before 9 July. They are also $500 under invoice. So I am
$3500 under invoice. They said if a better rebate came along before I
picked up the vehicle, they would give me that. I can not lose. This is a
very reputable dealer.
You better double check that "They are honoring the $3000 rebate as
long as I ordered before 9 July." The rebate applies when you "take
delivery" by the end of rebate date, not order before that date. I
just received my new Focus 2 weeks ago that was ordered on May 8th. I
was worried about that also.
