when I bought my ranger 3 years ago to get a $5K Ferd discount I had to take out a FMC loan - I paid it off right away


I thought it was pretty silly


got a good deal on the ranger - brand new 4x4 $19K sticker was 29K

Yeah, but to get those kind of incentives you usually have to buy a new car (or certified used, at least). The incentives you get up front don't make up for the depreciation that follows, IMO.
