I had some time to kill before my appointment, so decided to go to the local Ford Dealership and look at some of the 2003 Ford Focus cars. I liked this Liquid Grey colored ZX3. Now this one had the 16inch rims and tires along w/ 4wheel Disc brakes. Yes it had Advance Trak and it was of course automatic and AC. Did not notice if it had the MP3 or not, but the sticker price on this thing was $19,000, I said WTF???? That is outrageous. Yes there are incentives like $3000 off for something on top of like another $1500 and w/ those incentives it brought the price down to like $15,500. The price of the Focus has really gone up since I got both of my ZX3's from that Dealership. That is really ridiculus{sp?). Why did the price go up, more of a demand for these cars or what?????

Subtract the AdvanceTrac ($1625) and the automatic ($815) and you are down to about $13000 after the rebates and discounts you stated. Sounds like a decent price to me.

They really have not changed a whole lot if you go option for option; in fact with the rebates as big as they are now ($2500) you can probably pay less today than in '01 for an equally equipped car. In other words, the Focus is still a smokin deal for someone wanting a fun-to-drive small car.

Focus is a bargain/steal with 4000 off(ford 2500 rebate, dealer another 1500) msrp. I got mine that way..leather,roof,advancetrac,6disk,sidebags/ everything but the alarm...what other new car can match that for 15-16k...none!

All the American manufacturers are doing it. They are inflating the MSRP, and then give you rebates... makes you think you're getting a good deal.

It's kinda like furniture stores, where every tag has the "regular price" and then a "sale price".
