Practically every automaker who sells vehicles in the U.S. offers some kind of military rebates for active or retired service members. At first glance this seems noble, but what most buyers don’t know is that these programs often exclude the brand’s most desirable vehicles.
Recently, I was helping an active duty soldier who was deployed overseas and wanted to buy a Ford Focus RS. As we all know, these cars are not easy to score deals on. Many of them are being sold with dealer markups, and while it is possible to avoid that, it takes a bit of work.
