We saw the commercial for Ford trucks. They said up to $6,500 back at signing. We went to dealer. They showed us different models and we asked about incentives. They said only available on 2012, and only certain models, fine we went inside. To get even $3,000 off the price we had to have financing with Ford Credit. We are paying cash so we did not want to finance with Ford although we have in the past. The salesman said, just open the account to get the extra $1,000 so the total reduction would be $3,000 and then close the account!!
We passed on everything there. They put the small print on the commerical and it goes by fast, but even so, none of the discounts came to $65,000 as advertized.
