Dealers aren't getting $1,000 per reservation holder. We got around $4500 and have over 40 reservation holders. Just an fyi.
100% agree, I am a dealer as well and every dealer would love for this process to go smoother but it's all out of our control. As far as the "money" we get for this program, Ford is giving us a total allowance to use as we see fit. With that we can spend at a max of $1000 per customer but once that money is gone it's gone. If I divide our total allowance up evenly between all our reservation holders that equals just under $50 per customer.The dealerships do not get cash! They will be able to purchase swag, booze, accessories etc then invoice Ford with receipts to then get refunded. If Ford wanted you to be able to get a discount on your vehicle they could have given you another 200k FPR points which can be used as money off your vehicle, or accessories or services.
Most customers would appreciate that as opposed to a bottle of bourbon or Bronco swag.
But to involve the dealerships is wrong. We have no control over when your bronco will be built, no control over why your hard top is flawed or how long your vehicle will have to sit in a lot. I assure you all dealerships want your vehicles released as well.
I imagine it's a special program and the dealers have to show what they did and get reimbursed. Seriously doubt Ford will just send a grand per to each dealership.I wouldn’t mind 1000 dollars off extended warranty plan or one of those cool traxas rc Broncos but I could see most stealerships keeping the money for themselves
100% this. It’s like they want to be nice and do stuff for us which is amazing and appreciated, but I think most would take a straight discount. $1,000 off $50,000, $750 off $40,000, $500 off $30,000. Might even get some people to spend more for bigger discounts.be nice if they just gave people 1000 off the price of they bronco instead of cheapo gifts
that's a good one. The Balvenie 15 Sherry Cask is another tasty one. I saw someone else reference Pappy 15 - I wouldn't waste my money (or someone else's money) - the secondary market prices on that are absolutely ridiculous, and it's not that great of a bourbon - it's decent... but not $1500.00 ... maybe if it was $75-$100 a bottle.I'll take a bottle of Balenvie 21 yr Port finished double wood. Four bottles will kill that grand.
We don't have a solid plan yet. We got the email yesterday I believe.Can you share your rough plans for it?
