none of those deals sound too good. There are dealers around me, houston, tx that are taking anywhere from 10K to 15K off plus doing the ford credit financing of 0% for either 60 or 72 months, it was 72 and I think it is 60 now.
Father inlaw just bought a 08 Limited with heated and cooled seats, power rear gate, rear camera, tow package and a few other gadgets, granted its not a 4x4 but it is a limited, and paid 29K plus tt&l. So basically 32K drive out. Given the market conditions you should be able to get it for less than 37K especially considering most people are not going to get a 4x4, so they should be jumping to get rid of them. Hell ford is selling their f250 diesel 4x4's for 20 - 25K off.
Just to add my two cents... I agree these deals don't look too good to me. I bought my 2007 Eddie Bauer EL this time last year (in a very different economy) and the dealer knocked off $13K. The vehicle had a sticker price of $51.7K (it has all options including navigation and rear DVD, but not the rear load leveling suspension). I paid $39K (plus taxes) for it which to me was a good deal. In this economic environment, I gotta believe a better deal is out there.
Well I can tell you there are ton of 4x2s here in FL for 25,900 (eddie Bauers w/ tow package and something else most people get). They said it would be under 30K for a 4x4 equipped the sameway. In FL there is 6K of rebates on the new ones. I've got my 09 ordered up after checking out the new F-150 with major disappointment. I'd also wait for a 09 as they will have a revised 6 speed (6R80 instead of 6R75). They'll also have a new gen of navigation, auto wipers and something else I wanted but can't remember. As to pricing I'd say invoice less rebates right now is a good deal. I wouldn't pay a dime over invoice (I'm on a fleet allocation plan so I've never had to worry about pricing).
That sounds pretty high for an Expedition with not many options. Here is the deal I made with mine. I bought a 4x4 Limited 2008 in December (or January...can't remember now) with Nav,DVD, heated/cooled seats, power everything, leather, HD tow package, 20 in rims...the works basically with a sticker price of just under $50,000. Anyway I ended up financing $36,000. And that was with taking a small hit on my trade. Now I did register it in Alaska so I did not pay sales tax so that saved me a few bucks there. Eventhough I live in South Dakota I'm military and still a resident of Alaska so when ever I buy a new vehicle I can get out of paying sales tax. When I bought mine I must have went back and fourth with them for about 5 hours before I got the deal I wanted. Good luck!

That would probably be the only gripe I have about mine...the transmition. I like the 6 speed but seems like it searches for the right gear to often or puts it in to low of a gear. Maybe the new one will eliminate this problem.
