  1. How Do You Open & Close Your Doors

    Open with Acetylene torch Close with Welder. Doesn't everyone?
  2. Bad news about MIC 2.0 quality after a few days

    Inclement weather is becoming more inclement every year.
  3. WTF is a regional constraint?

    That's what I'm thinking. In a few days/weeks,Ford will announce: "Due to consumer requests, they've decided to put more weight on commodities. And, BTW, there are regional constraints that line up exactly with the previous allocation changes. No connection, we swear. "
  4. WTF is a regional constraint?

    The most recent constraints list includes a provision for "regional constraints". Being a cynic: I assume it's a way to leave Ford latitude to limit allocations to the dealerships that have too many reservations.
  5. Bronco Constraints Commodities - as of 10/27

    Cynically, I figure all the numbers are <10% for certain dealers in Iowa, WV, and PA
  6. 2 Door Badlands Manual First Dirt!

    Cool to see a 2-door and a manual oat on the trails. The bigger tires of the Jeep make his gearing a smidge taller. With the same size tires, they're probably identical.
  7. Updated: Resolved!! So, my bronco arrived and the dealer tried marking it up $10K ADM

    It's bullshit that it's necessary to reach out to an almost c-suite Ford employee to get dealers to act reasonably. Ford has fucked up giving larger dealerships leverage with lower customer match requirements and a tilted allocation formula that enables these pricks.
  8. Updated: Resolved!! So, my bronco arrived and the dealer tried marking it up $10K ADM

    You bough HP ink cartridges recently? That almost seems reasonable.

    He even has Bronc-O on the other side. And that dude has been the dissenter in several threads recently.
  10. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    How many Lepore's are there in that town that aren't related to the sales manager?
  11. Mike Levine saying outright he does NOT care about Granger/Chapman/SAC

    Waiting for each individual to make a personal plea for help is is only greasing the squeakiest wheels. What about all of the customers that have no idea who Levine is? They keep being quietly fed to the dealers that have leverage, thanks to the allocations.
  12. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    DCH Ford of Eatontown is doing their best to enforce car salesmen stereotypes. It's too bad for DCH Ford of Eatontown customers that DCH Ford of Eatontown would do things like this. I'd recommend everyone go somewhere other than DCH Ford of Eatontown.
  13. Update-Situation fixed-So my Bronco has come in.... & marked up 10k by DCH FORD OF EATONTOWN

    So many dealers have refused to come to those binding agreements. Which led customers to transparent dealers like Granger, Stephens, et al. Which led Ford to change allocations in support of the crooks.
  14. Purchase Pricing Bait-and-Switching

    Petition Ford, Mike Levine, and Jim Farley to correct the allocation/reservation system. Then move to a dealer that doesn't hesitate to agree to a fair price.
  15. Trying to understand allocations

    Is that not the same as first month? I'm genuinely curious. It's a learning experience.
