I don't trust Sheehy. They are my closest dealer, but had a crawler on their homepage on day 5 that said last day to reserve. 2 days later I reserved with Richmond Ford West.

Your dealer is either:

1) Incompetent
2) Playing a bad joke on you
No a Dumbass..
Most of us on here Know Way more about the Broncos than they will ever know..
I have that happen a lot.
I am a Farmer and I know more about Equipment than the dealers.
I get online and do lots of research like most on Bronco6G.
they are dumbasses..
all they are looking for is 5 o'clock.
and going to the lake.

I handle sales at a Ford Dealer out of Virginia, They are definitely not ordering 2-door and 4-door Bronco's next week. That's non-sense. Someone needs to inform that other dealer.

So what’s the numbers on the bronco at your dealership ?
At or under MSRP ?
X plan or any other plan ?
Will they match any ford dealers price ?
For example Granger Ford .

totally agree, it's very hard to find a salesman who actually knows what they are selling without reading off the website about marketing crap. i think the best salesman to have is a car guy you loves what they are selling.

I just got off the phone with my dealership, they said I need to come in next week to order and that they only had 37 appointments available. I thought actual orders were taking place in December. But when I asked about that the sales managers said, "Nope, Ford has bumped that up."

I also asked about dealer markups and X-plan, but they dismissed those questions and said the sales rep will go over pricing when I come in.

For clarity I reserved a 2 Door Badlands, not a Sport. And this is Sheehy Ford in Maryland.

Do you find Sheehy Gaithersburg reliable? I have my reservation with them as well and have no prior experience with them. My sales associate seems to be decent so far.

To be honest I have never Dealt with them before .I do work for the Sheehy Infiniti dealerships but not for Ford. It did take a while to get hold of the guy and get some answers out of him. I may make a second reservation somewhere else just Incase ,I’d love to do it with Granger but it’s too faraway.

I have. They are "looking into it" and will call me back. They either thought I reserved a Sport (I didn't) or they just don't know there is a difference between the Bronco and Bronco sport. Fine...

My thing is they made it clear they only had 37 appointments available and that they "were filling up fast." That's where I was like, look I have a reservation and I'm going to have to call around because what you're telling me doesn't sound right.
I don't even think a dealer can cap the number of reservations they get... If you call Ford and change dealers (remember we now know this can be done one time before Oct. 31st), Ford makes the change without contacting the dealer to confirm they want it... They inform the dealer they have a new reservation, but essentially there is no reason that a dealer would not take as many reservations as they can get. Volume is what allows for tighter profit margins. Someone like Granger figured this out first and will do very well with this vehicle release because of it. Stay ahead of the curve!

I'd probably find another dealer if they are already using high pressure sales tactics on you.

I am the only one at our dealership that has one on order...

But that is just me I jumped on the Gladiator like a dog in heat..

That honeymoon only lasted the 8 weeks to get it to me and the 4 months of ownership....

Do not want to relive Jeep great resale values, I would have lost less on a Compass..:mad:
What happened with the gladiator?
