I financed my F150 via Ford Credit to get the $1000 incentive, but they charged me 6% with an outstanding credit score, so they only got two payments before I refinanced through my credit union for much less. That and minus the those two payments saved me $65/month. When my other credit union offered a better deal a year later, I called my first CU and they met that rate. It is my money, after all.

When you refinanced away from Ford Motor Credit at 6%, did your credit union offer you new car APR rates, or used car rates?

New car rates. They should appreciate the financial wisdom of what you are doing.

Maybe I'm not considering something. Do you have any feedback on how to take advantage of this offer without getting screwed?
It's new rates, not used. Do it ahead of time with your CU, that's all I did.

Oh and btw you can refi BEFORE the first payment to FordCredit without any issues while keeping the Ford Credit rebate. I and many members on here have with no problems regardless what the finance guy says. I even got a refund check from FordCredit when i refi'ed mine.

Don't trust the finance guy. Go through Ford to get the credit then refi it. You still keep the credit and you get a better rate (new car rate).

I was able to get 15% off MSRP on a F350 Platinum a few days ago. Here in Canada, the F350 I was looking at was $84K and change. I ended up purchasing it for $71K and change.

The finance guy will get charged back if you refinance in under 90 days. Not fair to him really. I refiíd and 95 days. Sometimes people forget that the car salesman and his time is valuable and they do have a family to feed.

The price I got from my dealer was very easy with no tension or stress. Thatís the way it should be. If you got a dealer that screwing your round youíre at the wrong place.
