Mine has the rattle, but I'm going to ride it out for as long as possible and get it fixed under warranty eventually. I'm lucky in that I have a second truck to drive, but I'd hate to have my Bronco sit waiting when I know it's driveable.
Dealer can sell 'your' order to whoever they want, whenever they want. They're under no real obligation to sell it to you just because you ordered. Yeah, this is totally sh8tty, but it's happened countless times. You're at their mercy, unfortunately.
I don't think you can get a definitive answer on this. Demand is not what it once was and if it were me, I'd order what I want with full expectations that I'd see it in 24. What dealer did you order from by chance? I'm in Rock Hill and my 2 door was ordered in January of 22 and delivered in...
I've driven Ford products my entire life and even at what I paid for my Base ($31K), it was a total steal. Crazy how less than a year after I took delivery, the cheapest model is now almost $10K more than what I paid.
Maybe the door pull is a good spot to hide a doobie?
EDIT: Just looked at my Bronco. It'd have to be short doobie.
EDIT AGAIN: Not really an edit, but a suggestion. Can we somehow add 'Doobie Door Pull' to the title? Might get more clicks that way.... @mikejames
If the dealer is willing to pay for the repairs, what's the big deal? Yeah, it's an inconvenience, but slow down. The dealer could've played dumb and told you to buzz off, but it appears they're trying to make right?
