Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Still plenty of 2018 Taurus’ to go around. 2018 Fusion’s appear to have virtually all have gone fleet.

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

8 years and 125,000 miles is around $1700. Not bad. That would cover me through 2023.

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

The TX dealer got back to me at the end of the day yesterday. Weird. Anyway: time to move on. Will buy ESP or trade it in for a Hyundai next year when my warranty expires.

Hilarious video! Had a good laugh! :lol:

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Called a TX dealer today who then ghosted on me. Pretty funny really. Flake city! :)

Right. Either way it basically makes it very difficult to negotiate. :)

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

True perspectives. Very funny on "hide the salami"! :lol: Most of the SEs are going to fleet eventually. Just called a dealer on LI, NY where I used to live. The Sales Director told me that once they go too low a vehicle will go fleet to avoid eroding pricing on other and current model year cars. An...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Getting dealers to respond is near impossible. All the above may be valid but only up to a point. No idea why but there is virtually no negotiating. After an initial call / email 9 out of 10 ghost. The 1 out of 10 cannot change the price. Obviously I am not driving 200+ miles one way to get fleeced....

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

NC right now is $3000 rebate + $500 VIN + $2500 Ford credit so $6000. KS is $8000 with $5000 rebate. :?

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

For whatever reason (less demand?) KS currently has a $5000 incentive for 2018 Taurus whereas NC has $3000. Talk about unfair.

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

True! :)

My 2010 Avalon however did have a water pump failure and it cooked the head gasket (due to malpractice by AAA approved repair shop).

Will check 2018 Taurus prices again in April. 150K miles / 8 year ESP is $3K. May just go with that and drive the 2016 Taurus SE until 2025.

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Rebates are back but only $6K: they were at $7K around the Holidays.

Avalon’s have become insanely expensive BTW.

There are some real attractively priced LaCrosse’s on the market locally.

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Turns out that it is pretty complicated to find a complete set of seats. Plus most junk yards do not like trade-ins (of the cloth seats) and/or do not install seats.

Katzkin and other aftermarket leather is insanely expensive: $1800.

Would 2011 Limited seats fit in a 2016 SE? :mrgreen:

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Yep. Will try that. But will need to wait for a few weeks now. All the rebates lapsed yesterday and the only rebates available now are really poor. Experienced more of the same today with no responses and very high asking prices (inflated dealer fees). A few weeks after I took delivery of my 2016 Fo...

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

When I bought my 2016 Ford Taurus SE it had been sitting on a lot close to a year. Had some significant repairs shortly after delivery. No idea whether that is typical. 9 out of 10 ten times when I request the best out the door price I never hear back from the internet sales team. Very weird. No mot...

2018 Ford Taurus SE

Although there are more than 1100 2018 Ford Taurus SE's available nationwide with many >= 250 days on dealer lots they do not appear very motivated to sell. No surprise of course. Unless you are willing to come in and spend hours and hours haggling they are not interested. :lol:
