Anyone interested in getting together for a New England purchase at a single dealer?

I think the issue you Mass guys will have buying out of state is getting your plates. Mass doesn't believe in temporary or in-transit plates...so you need to close the deal then get your MSO so you can register in person back home and then come down to NY and collect your vehicle. The sales tax you pay will be based on where the car is being registered - not where you purchase it.

Spoke to a sales manager at Salem Ford today. After explaining Grainger and Brewster examples, he said they had no intention of selling less than MSRP. He could have the sales associate I'd been in contact with look into it an get back to me. :confused: You'd think a manager would have more info on sales than an associate.

Seems crazy to me that no Mass dealer would want to offer invoice pricing and instantly gain 46 (at present count) orders...

Or even something in between.... 500 off msrp.
Bowen in ct might be the closest to metro Boston. Can they support 50 reservations?

If you are in NE Bowen’s Ford in Eastford CT is mostly likely closer than Brewster in NY. They are offing invoice and a $175 fee. Contact John Bowen. I switched to them a couple weeks ago.
I emailed Jon Bowen:

Hello Jon
I currently live in Massachusetts and have a reservation for a 2021 BL. I got your contact info off the Bronco6g forum. The thread said you'd sell a Bronco at invoice plus $175 fee. Is this still the case? Currently there are 40 plus members in this group with a reservation. Would you be able to offer this to the whole group? I hope to back from you.
Best regards,


His reply:

Yes if there are 40 of you I will do that.

I called all over CT and Bowens was the only one that would off invoice or anything under MSRP.

I have 2 reservations, a July reservation with Marcotte Ford in Holyoke, MA and I'm in on the October deal at Granger. If it's in writing and we have enough #'s I'm interested in Bowen's offer.

AutoFair Ford in Manchester NH is willing to give $2000 of free accessories. I told them most people wouldn't go for that. He asked to run it up the chain and if we wanted a discount get back to him.

I am willing to do this but I think the Bowen's Garage is the best deal I would sign on to that.

Let me know

I just sent an email to Jon at Bowen’s Garage so we will see what he says. I asked some broad requirement questions too so he isn’t overrun with the same questions from all of us. Fingers crossed

Thanks for checking this out. I've emailed my assigned contact person at the dealer I have a reservation with and have not heard anything. I'll have to give them a call, but my expectations are low.

Since I have today off I've been making some calls and I've found a dealer in MA who is open to talking about a group discount. I told him that I think we could get somewhere between 20-40 reservations depending on the deal. As a starting point, I've inquired about whether they would be willing to honor X-plan pricing (even though it's technically not eligible). I was wondering if we can get an accurate count on how many people would be willing to jump on this offer if we can come to terms.

I'd be in. For ease of tracking, does it make sense to add a new column to our chart, rather than counting replies to this thread?
