Guess where i\'m going during my lunch hour!

Guess where i'm going during my lunch hour!

Ford Dealer!

I called this morning a sales person for a price for the following ride:

Ranger Edge 2005 supercab
Auto tranny
A/C
towing package
16 inches wheels w/ 255 tires
Bucket seats
Red exterior


The price the guy made me over the phone is really really really interesting: 345$ (canadian cheapo bucks) a month for 36 months lease, the only downside, I have to give 2100$ for a cash down because there's too much difference between what I still owe on my actual car versus what they gives me for it (3500 vs. 9000)

'cuz a lease cost about 175$ less per month compared to a 5 years financing.


also, after 3 yrs / 75000km, I bring it back to the dealership, I owe them a big 0$ and I can get another brand new vehicle instead of keeping it and starting to get new different problems every week like the actual focus did

yeah but youre paying off a vehicle for the dealer to resell for 100% profit. you build no equity in the vehicle. If you bought it, you could trade it in and apply money to the new vehicle and have lower payments and a shorter finance term.

Well I'd like to say: CONGRATS!


I'm sure Andreb knows his financial situation better than any of us here, so let's just be happy that he's getting what he wanted.

Sad to learn that you are leaving the Focus community, but I hope you don't leave the 'jet!

Re: Guess where i\'m going during my lunch hour!

is it the newer 5spd auto tranny? I drove a 3.0 auto, and the 2.3 5pd felt stronger than the v6. go figure, but nice truck nonetheless...
yep, 5 spd auto.

the 2.3l has about 10 more horsies than the 3.0l ... so it might feel a bit faster... but the 3.0l has a whole lot more torque and has the power band of a tractor.

Re: Guess where i\'m going during my lunch hour!

my step dad has a 2001 ranger with the 3.0 auto and damn that thing is gutless, my focus stock would kill that thing! on the highway i have to rock the truck just to get it to hit 70 hehe. the only thing nice about it is that when you have lots of weight in the rear you dont even notice it because of its tourqe, i would have got the 4.0 5 spd, tons of power, good for 4weelin!!
