Taurus #2

Post by 2011TAURUSSEL » Thu Jul 04, 2013 8:38 am

I know it sounds crazy but those of you that get to know me won't find it as crazy. I traded in my 13 SEL 201A NAV and a crazy end of June sale.....I traded for a stay with me Another Deep Impact Blue 13 SEL but this time 202A with Leather/NAV/Moon roof/Spoiler. The Blue was total fluke, I saw the price and that mark down I probably would have jumped regardless of the color. Good deal for end of month and it was literally the 2nd D.I.B. 2013 SEL that we stole from this dealer in less than 12 months. Dealer traded actually but more of a story with stole.

Running out for some errands photos later.

"Dealer traded actually but more of a story with stole." I'm not getting it, so lets hear the "stole" story!

Not much of a story. Dealer trade but funny part of the story is this is the Third vehicle I purchased from my dealership. All three of them were dealer trades, it just so happened that the Escape was on the selling dealers lot during my purchase. The other two Taurus (Tauri...LOL!!) had to be trucked over from the other side of the beltway. The other irony is both of the dealer trades for the Taurus were Deep Impact Blue SEL's one 201A and the new one 202A.

Yep, he's probably loving you BIG time! And hoping that you'll come back once more so he can chalk up another sale/trade before the 14's are out. It would probably set a new record. I can just hear him now - "Hey, you're not gonna believe this, but I sold three, yes three, 2013 Taurus' to the same guy in less than a year!" :oops:

Remember I am carrying some negative equity into the deal but aside from that straight cash purchase $35.5K down to $26.0K I would say pretty good. With negative equity, extended warranty and GAP insurance, I am just under Original MSRP and a lower interest rate for more equipment. Three vehicles from the same dealer but only two Taurus. First was a 2012 Escape Limited 4X4 Everything but Navigation and Active Park Assist. The original sales team for the Escape one is the Internet Manager and the other one was the finance manager this deal. I don't know what I did with the Escape but I know the finance manager then was leaving for the airport to catch a flight to Florida and they never heard from him again. The Saleswoman for the first Taurus left and moved back to WV.

I even emailed the GM of the original dealership to thank her for the assistance and she got a kick out of the two D.I.B 2013 SEL's in less than a year. She remembered the one from November but didn't put the two vehicles together until now.

Sorry we started to pile on. But all those deals should give you about one third ownership now in Ford. :lol:

Thanks, I finally found a dealership that treated me with reasonable courtesy and professionalism so that went a long way.
