Baystate Ford Informative - Awesome Deal on my Focus
STOUGHTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I went to Baystate Ford thinking I had found the deal of a lifetime, an 09 Ford Focus for just under 9k. I saw in their ad that it required 3500 down, which was about what I was planning. The salesman I dealt with explained that you need to add the 3500 down to the asking price, and that a lot of other places do it too. I didn't really believe what he was saying, but I unhappily agreed to still look at the car. It was in great condition and I really did like it. Although it was more than I was looking to pay, I was told they could help me on my payments and interest rate, again ok sure. I left to look at a few other cars that were similar in price but didn't have to add 3500 to...or so I thought. Even though one place didn't have anything in their ad about it, they told me I was to add 6500 to their 7500 Focus, PASS! The other focus I looked at had an accident on the car fax (which they refused to show me at first and tried to only give me an "Autocheck" that didn't show any accident. I don't if it is phony or just not thorough, but don't trust autocheck) and didn't sound right while I was driving. I went back to my computer and looked at a few other websites and the one at Baystate was actually a pretty good deal. It was actually almost 800 less than what edmunds says I should have paid. Long story short, I went back to Baystate and drove their focus. It drove perfect and was super nice. I said I would try to work with their price because it was pretty good, if they could really help me on my payments. I have horrible credit and they even got me a better rate than my bank could and got my payments to 195 a month which is why I wanted a 9k car originally. Even though you have to add 3500 to the price, it was completely worth it. Their car was so much nicer than all of the other ones out there.
