you might want to look at "program" cars. these are cars that were used
in a special program and they have low miles on them and can't be sold
as new, but still have the factory warranty on them - like cars they
offered to the execs to drive for a little while. if you are wanting
something new out of the box, you are going to pay the price for it, but
if you want something that is the same year as you are looking at, but
with low miles, the saving can be substantial.
the 'program' cars are only offered from ford motor company to ford
dealers only. no other dealers can buy them. since the ford dealer is
getting one heck of a deal on these program cars, he can pass it on to
to give you some idea of how good some of the deals are. my son works
at the local toyota truck plant where they make SUV's and pickups.
twice a year, they sell trucks that the execs have been using to the
employees. one of them was a 2004 SUV with 62,000 miles on it, and the
employee was able to purchase it for 7,200 dollars. this was not a
bidding war. this was the price placed on it by toyota - but the kicker
was - he had to keep it for at least a year before they could sell it.
