New member looking for new F150

Hi everyone,
I'm a new member looking at buying a new 2010 F150. I'm currently trying to negotiate with a local dealer on a new 2010, but I want to make sure I'm getting the best price. I offered this:

Ford XLT supercrew 4x4, 5'5

Employee price 31139
Freight 1400
Subtotal - per Ford.ca 32539
AC tax 100
Retail wholesale
5.4 engine 650 559 559
Captains chairs 380 327 327
pwr driver seat 370 318 318
Rear defrost 300 258 258

Ford credit for financing -1500

subtotal 32601

Less: 3% (32,539 x 3%) -976.17

Total before taxes 31624.83

The 3% is half the 6% commission the dealership gets from Ford Canada
I haven't mentioned it yet, but I should be entitled to recycle your ride for $3,000 for my 2000 saturn and $1000 for costco membership.

MSRP is $42,499

What do you guys think? Should I be able to get more off? What kind of accessories might I be able to get thrown in?

Thanks for your help and looking forward to being part of the forum

Actually I should mention that originally I was trying to find a used GMC or Chevy crew cab with about ~50kms for around 23k.
So I think I'm better off with getting a new ford for about $27k

That is a pretty good price, has the dealer already agreed to give up 3% of their commission? I haven't heard of any doing that, especially with the Employee pricing and the other rebates. Oh, that $3k is (up to $3000 for your car), I highly doubt you will get that much for a 10 year old Saturn, just saying..LOL. I don't think you will do much better than that pricing. The best we could do on ours (In January before employee pricing was happening) was $34k (after all fees, etc.), but we got our XTR Screw pretty much loaded up though as well, so, we were very happy with the price (retail was over $46k) good luck with the deal!

2010 XLT Screw 6.5 box XTR pkg, 5.4, bike hauler
2010 Mazda 3 Sport, Black mica, commuter duties
2008 Kawasaki ZX-6R - race ready (track duties)
2002 Honda Foreman 4X4, 26`ITPs, mud toy

That actually seems pretty good. I bought my F-150 from Erinwood Ford and they are well known to have extremely competitve pricing that is posted on their web site. You can sometimes get them to do better than the web site price. The "retire your ride" and Costco discounts are not included in their pricing on the internet, so you'd have to take off another $4000 to get the price you pay. Check it out.

Actually the $3k is for the "retire your ride" where they have $3k for a 2003 or older if you buy an F150. Otherwise, you're right, there's no way I'm getting $3k! haha

On my way to the dealership right now. They've pretty much agreed to $1000 off internet pricing or about 3%.

That dealer has been caught selling new vehicals (by people/members here) that have been smashed up and repaired and sold as new, with no disclosure to the new owners not a good dealer to deal with at all.

I would run as fast as you can in the other direction from them.

It is illegal to knowingly sell a damaged vehicle without disclosure

I'd say go for it man, $10k off MSRP is good stuff, and if it falls in your price range it would be silly to walk on by. You can get a lot of truck for the money....

As far as the other thread goes - being a Mustang guy as well as an F150 guy, it's sickening to hear about underhanded tactics by dealers. For all that's bad about them, I've been pretty fortunate to have found one that knows how to put the customer first. Experiences always seem to vary with these things though, but I count myself lucky in that regard. (Gratuitous shout out to Montgomery Ford in Kincardine)

Sometimes small town Ontario can be a good thing!! lol

I purchased mine at Erinwood Ford as well and save for a couple of hiccups, was no problem at all. Got best price there too.

What's the problem with the service dept TRUKNUTZ?......my first two oil changes are covered as long as I go to Erinwood, so I was planning on going there for sure for at least those two service appts.
