Looking to buy soon

Hello all,
I am currently looking to buy an MKC and hope to pull the trigger soon. The loaded Ford Escape is right were I should be for price.... but is completely uninspiring. I absolutely love the exterior styling on the MKC. I am hoping to walk away with a killer deal on an AWD premier, and then add the tow hitch / wiring later.
Great forum, and very informative!

Welcome to the forum!!

In addition, I don't think the Escape is going to give you the smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride that you get in the MKC.

If what you're looking for is in stock, I'm sure you can score a killer deal on a '15.

I have the dealership down to $32,752 for a midnight sapphire premiere AWD. I think a can squeeze a little more out of the deal. I test drove an Escape again today just to see if my opinion has changed about them, and it is safe to say I will not be getting an Escape.
does anyone have a breakdown of A-Plan prices for 2015's and 2016's?

If you get cash back and 0% on top of that, that will be an excellent deal!!

IF I am remembering correctly, I think I read on this forum that A-Plan pricing was/is in the range of 9-10% off MSRP.

OK folks wish me luck! I am going in to look at a "used" MKC with an incredible deal in the AM. I have a hunch that this was the dealership's, "Lincoln's Date night" Model, but for the price I can help but take a look!

If I read this correctly, by clicking on "View The Original Sticker" your deal is approx. $16k off of sticker!!! By the way, it's FWD not AWD and I presume that is an important consideration since you live in Minnesota?


Dealerships can make good deals but the bottom line is that they make a profit on every car they sell. Don't believe it when they tell you otherwise. If they are giving you $16k off, and let's guess that it has 1,000 miles or less on it, that is one deal that is very hard to believe.


Sorry that I am skeptical, especially when it comes to car dealers. I would suggest that you check it out thoroughly. If it was part of the Date Night, then it really shouldn't have more then about 500 miles on it. But keep in mind it could also be a genuine used car that someone bought a year ago and thought it was a lemon, or got in an accident with it, etc. Also, I would ask when the build date was and if it's been over about 10 months I'd question why it's still around. And if everything passes your test (which I hope it does) , BUY IT, and ask if they have another with the same deal and let me know because then I'm flying to Minnesota!

So I looked up the VIN# and the vehicle build date is 6-24- of 2014. That is an old car ! That build date would put just about every Tsb on the list to check for.
I guess if nothing else, I have an excuse to go in and test drive some cars
