Is anyone familiar with Ford's A-plan pricing? My wife likes the Cross Country and we have access to A-Plan pricing through her company. But I can't seem to find any info on the net.<P>I went to Don Beyer in Sterling, VA and they have a '01 V70 T5, well equipped for $35k, the red one on the show room floor. They said that it was priced better than the A-Plan. Now, I've call the 800 number we have but all they would tell me is that the A-Plan is below invoice. The dealer is suppose to have the A-Plan and X-Plan pricing on their invoice....the dealer didn't show me the "invoice".<P>I read on one of the Ford SportTrak sites that someone got a $29k SportTrak for $23k using the A-Plan. That seems like a good discount and if we could get something similar off a Volvo we may consider getting one.<P>Thanks,<BR>Chris<BR>'00 S4<BR>'99 S70 GLT

This would be A-plan pricing and not X-plan? (A-plan is more limited, generally to Ford employees and family).<p>Ultimately the dealer should show you invoice before you sign, though they might be reluctant to whip it out right away (habit?). I think there is a short 1-page worksheet you follow and it indicates that you fill in the invoice price and that you have seen it.<p><A HREF="http://www.fordpartner.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.fordpartner.com</A> has X-plan info, perhaps A-plan as well.<br>

A Plan used to be invoice less holdback less any rebates. It doesn't surprise me that you can save $6K+ on an Explorer Sport Trac. Remember, the domestics typically have a 3% holdback and generous cash back incentives; especially since the Sport Trac is nearing the end of its current life (after all, it's based on the last Explorer which left 4 years ago).<p>There is not a lot of markup on Volvo (6-7% usually) and holdback used to be 1%. In any case, the dealer should provide the invoice copy that clearly states the A plan price if you are eligible.
