Cool, good to know.

I contacted the dealer I placed my reservation with (Vista Ford in Woodland Hills) to confirm they were not doing a dealer markup and can offer x plan or any other special offers. No reply yet, if they don’t confirm I’ll hit you back up and possibly switch my res to you guys.

RIght on, I've worked with some people at that dealership, solid team over there. We would welcome your Xplan deal if you decided to make that change! Let me know if you do so I can watch for your reservation.

Cheers,

Eric

Very nice to hear from a SoCal dealership on this forum. My FE bronco reservation is from a Riverside dealership and I’ve gotten no commitment on pricing or markup. I’ll definitely look to you when it comes time to place my order if you can commit to x-plan and no dealer markup when it comes time to order. It’s also important to me to get my order in as fast as possible to preserve my place in line, I reserved in the first 5 minutes.

So far North County Ford in Vista has been pretty responsive, but they have not told me my reservation number from the dealership and have only guaranteed me MSRP with no markups. I asked about X-Plan and they only said if Ford offered it on these vehicles which I believe has been stated by Ford's Communication Manager that they will. I am with a partner company with an x-plan pin so I would like to guarantee that price before order. If I keep getting the run around, I may try and switch to you and Kearny Eric. I'm in San Marcos so would be an extra 20 minute drive but well worth it for peace of mind.

The team at Raceway are pretty solid if that's who you're with. Not sure their pricing structure though. We decided very early on to commit to honoring Ford Plan deals, and also to commit to $0 dealership markups. In fact I send that in writing to every reservation we receive just so our customers don't stress about that being an issue down the road. I'd be honored to work with you if you decide to switch!

Also, good call reserving in the first 5 minutes! You can't get more 'front of the line' than that, unless your buddies with Henry Ford III haha

Well the good news is there will definitely be Xplan pricing available on the Bronco. I have that confirmed by Ford. It's up to the dealership whether or not they will honor it though.

As for me and my house, we will honor the Xplan. Feel free to call or email me if you'd like any other assurances!

Hi Eric,

I have a reservation and would like to possibly move it to Kearny Mesa since I've received no zero-ADM commitment from my local dealer. Would you please explain how and when I'll be able to switch my existing reservation over to your dealership?

Thanks in advance!

Eric, sounds good. Thank you. If I don’t hear back from Vista Ford, I’ll reach out to you for sure. Sounds like Ford is allowing customers until 10/31 to change dealerships. Definitely would prefer to work with a fellow enthusiast like yourself, though Vista Ford is down the street from me. Either way, we’ll be in touch!

Hey! is TommyTwoTone a Goodfellas reference? "I'm going to get the papers. Get the papers." lol

Thanks for asking! The process isn't perfect yet but most of my clients are telling me it takes only 5-15 minutes. You will need to call Ford at 1-800-334-4375 option 1 for English (if that's what you need), then option 3 for marketing. Let them know you want to move your reservation to Kearny Mesa Ford. Our PA Code is 05389 in case that helps them confirm the dealership. Do me a favor though and email me once you've done that so I can go in and confirm that I've received your reservation.

I look forward to working with you!

Thanks Eric. I was just reading about the dealer change process. Considering Ford has stated the last day to change dealers is October 31st and orders will not be placed until December how will reservation holders with Kearny Mesa be assured prices won't be jacked up between October and December?

Outside of putting it in writing, I'm not sure what else I could do to assure you that we will stand behind our promise. Do you have a suggestion of what else I can do?

I suppose that will work. Ordering a new car straight from the factory is new territory for me. I suspect negotiating bottom line price months in advance of the dealership being able to place said order will be new territory for the dealer as well.
