My Bronco was built last month and I have been checking daily to see when it ships. I just happened to look on cars.com to see if there were any Broncos available locally and see one listed at my dealer that was equipped just like the one I ordered. They listed a VIN number and it was my Bronco. They have it listed for sale
for $10,000 more than MSRP. I am beyond shocked to see this and waiting for the dealer to open to confront them. I have already purchased lots of accessories to add to my Bronco when I get it and can't believe they did this. Wow!

This is common for dealers to post all incoming stock on cars.com. They use it to drum up interest and get people calling in. I’ve called a few before and they’ll say it’s a customer order and it automatically gets posted…btw we have this vehicle that doesn’t even compare to that one…can I get you information on it instead…etc etc.

😬. I had this exact same thread awhile back. It’s standard protocol when your vehicle populates to the dealer it for some reason goes to Cars.com and the likes. Just reach out to your sales person and verify they ain’t gonna bend you over😳

This is very common. It doesn't necessarily mean anything nefarious is going on. When mine shipped it automatically showed on my dealers website. But they marked it as " Sale Pending". When it was delivered they removed it from the website and contacted me.

Keep calm and contact them. Don't want to go in too hot and potentially hurt your chances of getting your Bronco.

It’s called Bait and Switch.
And illegal here in Massachusetts.
Call your Attorney General’s Office and ask them if it’s legal. Certainly not moral.
They’re really chumming with that 10k over msrp ‘bait’. 😂

It's normal. Mine is listed as a 7sp with tow package. I dont have those two options. It's also listed for more than what I will pay. Don't create a problem that's not there.

When I was searching I’d see tons of Broncos on sites, and they would always say “this is a customer order and already sold, but come on in and we will order you one too” and then they claim Ford posts to their site automatically when they get one and they don’t have control over it. As a buyer it’s very frustrating because they’re advertising stock they don’t have and wasting my time!🤬

So a Computer, not controlled by man, lists a sold vehicle, and puts an ADM on the price, and there’s nothing that can be done? Next folks will see their orders going on test drives! And where are the dozens of pages on Cars.com and the like with ordered Broncos for sale?

It's a matter of inventory transfer and is all automatic. Databases are hooked in to each other. Ford electronically transferred the bronco into the dealers inventory, the dealer's database is synced with the website, and probably synced also to various other 3rd party sites to make marketing easier. A vehicle shows up in inventory and moments later it's posted, no manual input needed. No manager asking the marketing department why the dealer inventory is not on the website.

I wouldn't worry about it, the dealer probably has no idea that it's even posted on their site. Mine wasn't when I mentioned to them that my bronco is probably going to show up soon since it's on their website.

If the dealer is not reputable it doesn't matter if the bronco is on their website or not. They would attempt to sell it when it came in with the ADM. The dealer probably has global markups on particular models of vehicles when they get added to the system. More automation = less misses and mess-ups. Nothing to get the torches and pitchforks out over, which I know some folks love to do here. There are other posts about this subject already, it happens a lot.
