You can negotiate just like you would if it were sitting on the lot. Many times the dealer won't be as flexible to $$$ since its not stock sitting on the floor that they are paying on.When you special order MKC, can you negotiate the cost, or are you stuck paying the MSRP? And how do you handle a trade-in value?
Selling your old car privately is always a good option.Yes, I got the vehicle for my original offer, which was invoice, less a mfg rebate of $1000.
The MSRP on my MKC was $44,420. Invoice was $41,768. Before taxes, my net cost was $40,768. This is for a 2.0 AWD Reserve with the enhanced audio system. Could I have gotten them lower at the time...maybe so, not sure. I'm guessing that it may be more of a buyers market right now versus last Fall, when I made my purchase.
One thing I didn't do was to trade the car that the MKC replaced to the Ford / Lincoln dealer. Tested them for a price, with their offer being 25% lower than I ultimately sold my other car for.
Thanks for sharing RobJeff. (I'm struggling with this process now, but I easily go into overload mode as I usually buy used vehicles.)The MSRP on my MKC was $44,420. Invoice was $41,768. Before taxes, my net cost was $40,768. This is for a 2.0 AWD Reserve with the enhanced audio system.
