Totally agree !!!Could you imagine how many reservations Ford would have without the $100 deposit? 500k? 1 million? 80-90% dropout rate? Havoc ensues.
Same goes with the ordering. If you’re not willing to drop another $500 at time of order, you’re the exact person they don’t want to place an order because you’re not committed to showing up in fall 2037 (s/) to pick up your Bronco, thereby taking a vehicle out of the hands of someone else who was serious. Ford doesn’t want 2021 Broncos sitting on lots, they want them going to serious reservation holders. This is already going to take forever to fill reservations without a bunch of ninnies placing orders they never intend to retrieve.
