I'm not convinced most dealers are using this program. I think the fear is that they'll be stuck holding the bag on $100,000 worth of stuff. Several of the big names on here did not participate.
This has always been my take on it. Several up & up dealers on the forum are not participating. With how the launch has gone is anyone surprise there's apprehension to a "you pay now and maybe we'll reimburse you later" program?I'm not convinced most dealers are using this program.

Is anyone REALLY surprised by this?We’ve all heard of the Bronco Customer Satisfaction Funds, but apparently not everyone at Ford has. I attended a free Bronco event this past weekend and the Ford rep was upset that my dealership had not heard of these funds “that can be used towards attending the Bronco off-roadeo.”She gave me a black business card with an 800 number “Bronco Support Team” I mean she and the other event reps REALLY encouraged me to call. I called the 800 Bronco Support Team number. THEY SAID NO $1k Bronco Customer Satisfaction Funds exist!!!! They asked where I heard of it. I said “obviously they exist because your Ford rep at Castaic Lake encouraged me to call this number.” The manager got involved and also denied that the Funds exist. I then READ her the information provided by Ford. Finally the customer rep with the Bronco Support Team said “You’ll need to talk to your dealership” I said “You’ll need to talk to your Ford reps at these events because they are giving out this number and encouraging customers to attend the off-roadeo using this money.”
I can’t believe how all over the map Ford is on this!!!!!
You should have some money coming. But you will have to press them.I brought this up with my dealer when I was taking delivery. He said they would honor it due to the delays but it's not something every owner gets, but up to the dealer? Mine was built 8/5 but sat on Dirt Mountain until yesterday.
Nice! Good for you. With my deal from SAC and early delivery, I never expected any money. Some of you guys deserve more than a grand for all the BS you’ve dealt with.When we bought out Bronco on Nov. 9 I brought this up to the finance guy. He never heard of it but my Bronco Specialist was just walking in when I mentioned it. He was aware of it and said he'd look into it. I asked if he would give me a Bestop Bimini top with the funds. About 5 minutes later he walked in with the Bimini top in hand and told the finance guy some info on how they'll get reimbursed for it.
