Is it any good? A friend of mine works at a Ford dealership. Now take this with a grain of salt, but he says that there was a fleet purchasing order and 22 of these were ordered instead of 2, so now they’ve got 20 identical cars on their lot. They’re all white, black cloth interior, with the 1.0L 3-cylinder ecoboost engine and a 6 speed manual. All identically spec’d. The window sticker is just over 19k, but would this be a good deal if I could get them down to maybe 13k? I’ve been looking for a reliable replacement for my 2002 Civic. I’ll still have my Miata as a fun car, so it’s ok if this thing isn’t very thrilling.
Now, it’s possible that this is just a sales gimmick to increase the dealership’s numbers, but why would any dealership intentionally order 20 identical stick shift cars and sell them on the cheap? What say you, Oppo?
