Hello everyone!
I'm considering purchasing a F150 XLT Ecoboost, 302A package, but not firm on the XLT.
I tend to drive vehicles to the end. I currently drive the Ford Ranger I bought in 2000. It has 300,000 mile.


As silly as it might sound I don't know how to buy vehicles meaning negotiating and knowing if I'm getting taken or not.


I will be using the X Plan. I see on my company's X Plan web site that a certain truck has a "Net X PLAN." That price is $32,386. The dealer says the X Plan rice is $34,041.79.


That does NET X PLAN mean and is the dealer trying to make another $2000 from me?


Any advise on how to buy, what to look out for and not paying more than I should would be appreciated.


Thanks!

I did X-plan and X-plan price is usually very close to the invoice price. Ask them to see invoice price. Also you may qualify for any one of a number of rebates that would be an additional discount over and above X-plan.

I used X Plan also. The X Plan price is listed on the invoice and they are supposed to show you the invoice. XPlan allows the dealer to charge the destination fee and up to $750 dollars "Administrative Fee". So depending on the destination charge that price might be really close. However the "administrative fee" can be negotiated out. I have bought several vehicles using x plan and have always negotiated the fees out. The destination charge cant be negotiated.

Btw, Welcome to the F150 Ecoboost Forum!

Wait till the end of the month to buy. Salesmen typically only get paid around 100-150 per sold vehicle. It's when they meet their monthly quota do they get paid their bonus. I also try to buy from a volume dealership. To give you an idea, I purchased my truck 2 weeks ago and got 10k off the MSRP.

Take a look at this link. These prices are behind X-Plan and back of invoice. If you local dealer won't deal, fly down here have a salesman pick you up at the airport either DFW or Love Field and drive a new truck home. The prices are before TT&L. They do charge a smaller paperwork administration fee, but it is small. If you want a contact person at the dealership PM me, my son is a Sales Manager there.
