I started looking at the C-Max in December and ordered a 2014 SEL on January 3rd
- Rub red
- Panoramic Roof
- Nav package
- Hands free package
On January 27th my dealer told me the build date for the car was the week of February 24th
On February 18th my delaler told me the build date got moved to the week of March 11th
On the lot the dealer has 2013 SEL that is the same as the one I ordered except it is in black instead of red
Right now the 2013 is $685 cheaper but my guess is with some negotiation I can save even more by purchasing the 2013
So it really comes down to two choices:
- 2014 in red, all the changes they put in the 2014 (better gas mileage? fix any problems found in 2013 model year?), pay more
- 2013 in black, none of the changes made in the 2014 model year, pay less
Should $685 and immedate delivery of the car make up for the fact that I am not getting the newest model year?
What if I can drive the price difference to $1,000 or even higher?
