This feels like those jokes about “it’s not the monthly number it’s the down payment that’s got me strapped”.

Why wouldn’t that have been rolled into the sale of your Bronco? That’s generally what happens with that money unless I’m just clearly missing something.

Hhmmm might be gonezo.

maybe if you throw big enough fit they will just cut you check.

but 99.9% of the time when put deposit they put that towards the vehicle.

surprised they didn’t do that. You might be out the 100 beans man.

Deposit is applied to the cost of the vehicle. You normally do not get a deposit back unless you don't get what you ordered.

Deducting $100 off the price on the sales paperwork takes like “ zero” effort. The dealer in your case was hoping you forgot about the $100 deposit. Now that you haven’t, they gave you the “ check is in the mail” excuse and are hoping you will forget all about it.

Mine wasn't applied to my purchase. In fact, my dealership told me they've not seen a single customer get that deposit refunded by Ford. My guess is it's the dealership that's confused here. I plan to call Ford about that as well as my 22.5 price protection, which I also have not yet seen rebated.

For the low cost of $100, you too can make sure that a dealer does not go hungry.

FWIW, mine was applied in my purchase order without me even having to bring it up.

The dealerships got that money, not Ford.

Not sure this helps, but I had also placed a reservation for a Mustang MachE GT which required $500.00 deposit. I canceled my order, received my $500.00 back and still took delivery of the MachE GT.

Asked my dealer about this each time we agreed on price. Each time he said he thought it would be in Ford points.

It shows in the back door summary, but the $500 deposit only says $100.

I don’t trust anything until I walk out with the keys.
