OK so they want you to pay 748 a month for a car that costs 35K? Lets see I bought my 06 GT as it sits minus the S/C and chrome pieces for 37K put 5K down and that brings us to 32K (3K less then yours) but mine had 400 miles on it. I pay 550 a month on 32K thru Ford Credit and never onec did I have to wheel and deal like you apparantly have too. I would not buy the car unless they give it to you for 550 or less a month!

Find another dealer that has something similar and tell them you want the one you mentioned and if they can beat the monthly payment and give you what you want for your car (get dealerships to down bid each other and play them against each other) why? you have the time and a beautiful stang as it sits right now and your in NO HURRY. (at least act that way)..

Last question which may explain many yrs on the loan? 3 or 4? thanks
