If you belong to DAV or DAVA they have a great program with Ford that used to allow Members to buy at real factory prices. Doesn't hurt to ask if its still in place. By the way Ford sells lots of different brands

Right now is probably a good time to purchase a new auto/truck/suv...GM currently has a voucher program where the govt will give up to 4500 for a used car trade in the chevy dealers are pushing it alot now...plus hybrid's are giving up to 5000-6000 rebates for many different brands and hybrid suv's too...

0% interest offered or 3500 cash back/ 7 yr financing too...all now are offerring a plan with a new purchase if you loose your job the pmts will be made up to 6-12 mths/varies with who you buy from...it will not affect your credit rating...some have you can give the car back too.

I know a lady who wanted a decked out chevy tahoe and she waited and one of the chevy dealerships lost their dealership and she bought it for 23,000 it listed for 49,000. Chrysler/dodge/jeep are selling well below cost.

Ford is really giving some great deals. Foreign sales are up, they have deals to, but I prefer to keep american workers with their jobs with the old standard ford/chevy...this is a personal choice, who knows what the future will bring...to each his/her own. It is what I grew up with, and others will make their own choices, so this is not a debate/just offerring what is out there.

Check the web sites, newspapers, and call the dealerships. They will tell you what programs/incentives they have now.

Good luck with your search and test drive it overnight if you are serious about a certain vehicle...also ride in the back seat too/as we bought a new ford mustang GT red convertible some years back (before my disabilities took over my life) and I sat in the back seat after we bought it...no leg room...but what a slick fast beauty it was! Kept it a few yrs and traded for a eddie bauer explorer...love it and gets good gas mileage cause I drive it like a little ol' lady, haha.

Check out kelleybluebook, edmonds, for hints on what cars are worth. Heck check out craigs list too for your area. <_<

    • A few days ago, my attorney sent me this email on a PTSD claim I filed back in 2016 and have appealed to the BVA.  After getting this email, I checked eBenifits & VA.gov and they still read, "waiting to be sent to a law judge".

      "I am reaching out to give an update on your case. We are currently pending a Rating Decision in response to the Board Appeal filed 05/18/21. If you have received any recent VA correspondence, please be sure to inform our office"

      Thank You

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...

      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.

      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.

      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.

      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"

      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.

      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.


      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating

      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%

      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008

      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)

      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%

      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)
