I work at a Ford Dealership and Ive seen the prices go down somewhat with this sale. One way Ford is gaining some money back is not offering as much on rebates. Before the "Ford Family Plan Discount" all new Explorers got $5000 in rebates...now with the "Ford Family Plan" theyre only offering $4000...

I bought my 'O5 on either the x-plan or the Z-plan before all this started kicking in. Still got to use the good rebates of course.

I heard the unions were getting pissed when Chevy introduced this, wonder what will come of that, if anything.

The thing is are you still able to negotiate prices on the discount, if you cant then I have to say its a rip off. I was very close a few weeks back in purchasing a new 05 Level II and had them down to about 18k with X-Plan. Looking at the prices now with the employee discount I'm not very sure its a good deal anymore.

A-Plan

The family plan will be the ford A-Plan price. If a salesman presents you with the "invoice", it will be one of the boxes on the card. A-plan price is usually a little less than what Edmunds calls "invoice price." Rebates are in addition to the A-plan price. There is also X-plan, but that's for 'friends of family', and is much higher.

This past January, I bought a L2 slightly under the A-plan price, plus $2500 in rebates, just haggeling with the dealer.

Dealers also get quanity bonus money. If they meet their numbers, they get another $180 back per car, on top of hold-back, and everything else.

The prices are non-negotiable. When I talk to customers I have to tell them these are the best possible prices. Basically you really have to sell your dealership now to get a sale because every dealership is selling the vehicles at the same prices now.

so your saying that the a-plan is a better deal or vice versa?

when my dad ran the distrobution plant for chicago he knew alot of salesmen at the ford dealer across the street and they said you can haggle below the discount price if your really good and its the end of the month where they need to meet their quotas.
