Seriously bro unless I missed it, he didn't proclaim to be offering an unbeatable offer. While this guy didn't do himself any favors with some things he said, somtimes the condescending know it all demeanor of many in this forum are causing me to rethink getting a Bornco. If Bronco owners are a bunch of assholes -- count me out!
You should probably cancel your reservation just to be safe 😂.

I think a Wrangler would suit him well. There definitely aren’t any assholes driving those.

No shit. That has to be the smallest dealership from any major manufacturer that I've ever seen. Is that normal for that area? I grew up in the Western US and am not very familiar with New York/Long Island.
Yes as someone that lived in both LI counties western Nassau towns can be very crowded especially next to main highway areas. Very common for inventory to be stored in other lots.

I bought my Fiesta from Crown. They have a separate used lot that has a decent amount of space. That also has its own service area. The service area is attached to the new showroom and pretty average sized. It’s pretty typical on Long Island for dealers to have small lots like that and much larger satellite lots. That being said they could never seem to find me a loaner...

I don’t think a single dealer on Long Island (that I’ve heard of at least) is doing below MSRP. Probably makes sense for them not to as well in that case cause they’re gonna go for the higher price with lower volume. I’m doing Granger’s October deal personally, but if Crown would like to take delivery that’d be neat!
Same here I currently ordered through Riverhead Ford

I believe we think along the same lines. I've been a Bronco owner and sometimes I wish all the non-Bronco people would get out. Don't blame this on the Bronco faithful (those that HAVE owned in the past)
It's probably more the new guys to the game 😞 Some you can spot a mile away. Just saying.

Welcome to the Internet, gramps... a digital land where people often say things that they might never say to someone face to face.

Truth be told, if you met most of the people here out wheeling, at a Bronco gathering, or just breaking bread around a campfire, you would all probably get along just fine. Heck, even some of them might grow to like a Karen like you. ;)







See what I did there?

For those crying foul and pointing the finger at the forum members, it's important to look at the order of posts. Posts 1-8 were fairly standard with only normal questions being asked before this dealer started to down talk the competition. Apples even tried to warn this guy.

These 2 quotes are posts 9 and 10

Ty for your comments. With respect to converting from one dealer to another, one can reserve the new truck at a secondary dealer and have it converted immediately. We do not have a clear idea when those orders will actually be built.. (ie. Will they be built according to reservation date, conversion date, hierarchy on Ford's list etc). With respect to pricing, I have heard many dealers quoting above MSRP, adding delivery and/or prep fees. We will sell all vehicles at MSRP without any surcharges. The margins which we are afforded ( invoice/list) have narrowed significantly over the years, not keeping up with the cost of doing business. I am not very confident that any reputable dealer who wishes to remain in business and profitable would consider discounting the Bronco at this point
The dealers that are offering 3% below invoice.. or better? Beware of any surprises. I'll leave it at that
Before these 2 posts, everything was civil.

So, the instigator was @CrownFord and we all know, this is not the forum to do that on.
@CrownFord also never answered the question everyone would want to know.
How many allocations do they have and have many reservations.
The other "NonReputable" Dealers who are offering prices below invoice, have provided this information.

So in this case, I would point the finger @CrownFord for walking in here with the Tyical Salesman attitude and thus getting this type of response.

I'm one of the one's that moved my reservation from my local dealer to Chapman which is about a 10 hour drive. My local dealer was proud to be offering MSRP and no additional fees. They told me about where I was in allocations based on who had converted but wouldn't give me exact numbers. They felt like they had the best offer in the area and they probably do. When I asked them to do better, their response was that other dealerships are charging above MSRP and they wouldn't budge.

I think this guy felt the same way. He probably has one of the better deals in his area. There are several posts on here of people using that same dealership and being very happy with their experience.

He should have never called out other dealers and should have done some research before posting an offer on here. But I think we as a forum were a little hard on him.

I agree, up until that last paragraph. Him touting himself as some great salesman, questioning dealers with 3% under invoice and the validity of those deals got him exactly what was coming. He brought that on himself. Lee started off just fine, but then took the condescending tone that no one likes from any dealer.

If that happens when I go to Granger, I'll walk. I don't want any part of buying a vehicle from ANYONE like that. That's just being upfront and honest. I expect the same from Lee and any dealer. If they want to play around, then they'll get the cold shoulder, at the least, from me.

I agree with you, and he did go into "dealer speak." I don't want that experience either.

He seemed almost shocked that anyone would be offering what a few of the dealers are offering and I think that's why he responded that way. My dealer had a similar reaction, but did not call out other dealers. I'm still baffled why my dealer wouldn't meet me half way. I would have paid more to stay local and told them that, but I just wasn't going to pay MSRP when I could get invoice or better somewhere else.

Yep. None of them understand that here in the Chicago area either. If one does, I haven't found them. LOL.
