Need Advice!

Hey guys,

First time poster, so any advice will be greatly appreciated. I am looking at purchasing a 2013 F150 FX4 with 9900KM's on it. Below is the the list of options on the truck:
3.5L TWIN TURBO V6 ECOBOOST ENGINE
-6 SPD AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
-DUAL CLIMATE CONTROL
-HEATED AND COOLED SEATS
-402A PKG
-HID HEADLIGHTS
-MY FORD TOUCH NAVIGATION
-POWER MOONROOF
-SYNC BLUETOOTH
-REMOTE START
-REAR VIEW CAMERA
-TAILGATE STEP
-APPEARANCE PKG
-SPRAY ON BOXLINER
-OXFORD WHITE COLOUR
-BLACK LEATHER SEATS

The truck is going for 39,000....is this a good deal or should I look for a better deal?

Any information is appreciated.

Thanks so much,
newchally

Same truck, brand new 2014, prices out to about $50,000 to $52,000 before taxes, depending on Scab vs Screw.

Don't know if you're looking at a Super Crew or Super Cab, but from what you've listed, it's a well appointed FX4 by the sounds of it.

The price isn't a screaming good deal, but it's fair enough IMO, doesn't matter what I think though, I'm not the one signing the cheque - do YOU think it's a good deal ?

Gotta ask yourself if it's worth the extra $10000 to get a brand new truck, ordered to your specs, or if you're happy with all the features and colours you're getting on the 2013.

Sounds like a nice ride, good luck and welcome to fordtough.ca.

interest rate on a used is usally higher then new?
add in the interest and if its anywhere near new just get new.

Good point Blair, never thought to ask if it was a private sale or sitting on the dealer lot.

Sometimes, if it's on the lot, I think Ford Credit rates might be better than the major banks, but that depends on a lot of things.

Buying new, I've seen Ford Credit rates the banks couldn't / wouldn't touch, and on the flip side, when there's a lot of incentives offered by Ford, the banks had a better rate.

If it's a private sale, I always have to ask why they're selling a year old truck with only 10,000 km on it.

Also, OP never mentioned if there was a trade in involved, or if it was a straight up sale, that can influence the decision as well.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the input. It's on the dealer lot, I can expect an interest rate of 5.99-6.99 and currently 5.99% is what is on the new ones, so interest rate isn't really a factor. The truck is a super crew and there is no trade going to be involved. One other thing the truck comes with is a full set of winter tires. I may try to get them to lower it another 1000 or so or throw in a few accessories.

$39,000 is ridiculous for a truck with 99,000km's on it even if it is only a year old. The black book trade in value on it is like $25,000. I'd look for a different truck.

Winter tires are a nice bonus, factor another $1000 of value into the deal, more if they're mounted up on a set of steel wheels.

Highly recommended, the money you save on mounting and balancing, not to mention wear and tear, they pretty much pay for themselves in four to five years.

Offer in at $1000 off lot sticker, throw in some accessories and sounds like you'll do OK.



Hey herbz, it's 9900 km, not 99,000.

Be sure the winter tires have the Tire Pressure monitors installed too! I hated seeing the pressure fault warning all winter in my 2009 Flex!
