Who else is at Ford of Kirkland?
Have you been given any intelligent information?
I complained about my assigned salesperson and got switched on Friday.

Fleet manager, Customer Service Manager and Sales Manager all deny ANY knowledge of ordering opening and the ordering process.. I do know they have over 300 reservations. With that number, you would think they would apply a bit more effort to learn something?

Has anyone had a different experience?

Check your position and call Bowne Scarff. I moved from from Evergreen and have not regretted it at all. The "Puget Sound Bronco Brigade" group goes over this in some detail and we can all give you our two bits.

I am here. I was told they have over 550 reservations and no answer about allocations.
500+ reservations and they seem to be in denial or obliviousness

If I was a dealer and had 500 reservations, I probably would have a dedicated employee setting up a process to get things under control

Same with me, 1st answer was that allocation had no impact on when you get your Bronco, I quoted the Ford email that said it did and they admitted their "error" . They will not tell me how many reservation or their allocation. I know its going to be a long time for me but I want to work with a dealer that's not full of it.

I can't tell if they are oblivious or devious

I switched from Kirkland to Bowen. I had asked a couple questions over email (twice), no response, changed dealers. Plus Bowen has the limited lifetime warranty.

Does anyone know how many reservations/allocations Bowen has?

I had a short thought of going there before I reserved. When I saw and verified the Granger 1k and told Bowen I got the standard "be careful. I doubt it is true response".

Ok how do we go about finding out the dealers allocations/reservations? I’ve had no problems with Kendal so far but if and when it arrives that will be the real test!
