    I've used it before, but I've often wondered if the salesman was being straight with me.

    How do I know - or where can I find out - what the correct A-Plan price of a vehicle is? Is it a straight percentage over invoice? Should the price be the exact same at different dealerships?

    I'd really like to have this information before I walk into the showroom.

    (and I know they'll try to tack on dozens of inflated add-ons, such as undercoating, floor mats, mud flaps, extended warranties, etc.)

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Yes, the price should be the same at every Ford dealership under any of the company's employee/retiree discount plans. We have purchased our last two Mercury Villagers this way. The only price that would remain negotiable is a trade-in for your used vehicle, if you are trading one in (although I would recommend trying to sell a used car privately).

    The salesman should be able to show you a printout with the A plan price for the car you are interested in, along with A plan pricing for any options you want (such as upgraded sound system, sunroof, etc.).
