That thing was so sweet when we were all dreaming about it. What a piece of crap now that we’ve seen the real thing. Ford, get your act together. Nailed the design and have a homerun product - execution with rollout is embarrassing.....I mean , I was totally down for buying this a few years back LOL!!!
Right! I was pissed at first, but calmer thought reminded me that my dealer always prices below invoice (below X-plan) and has stated that they will in this case also, even special orders....as long as Mother Ford stays out of their pricing strategy they will be in line with Granger's pricing.Not backing out just think X=Plan is not below invoice so why is Ford doing this. Has more $$ effect on dealers, so don't mess with your customers
This is exactly where I stand. I'm going to take this up to the point of ordering the vehicle, but I'm not getting bent over for this.It’s not the money since I’m a granger customer- potentially- so this only affects $300 from the below invoice pricing
What irritates me is the fact Ford doesn’t communicate, they use a mass comm guy who uses social media like a teenage girl. Who says shit like goats and moles.. ford showing off pre-production vehicles that aren’t options to buy or option at the factory. Dealer allocation bullshit..
In the end I have had a love affair with the bronco since I was a 5 year boy riding in my dads ‘73
But it’s a car- it’s a 50k deappreciating asset. The newness will wear off, the love affair will end and it will be honestly just another car that gets traded off or hits the junk pile
We all have to ask ourselves is it worth it- some will say yes some will say hell no
I’m somewhere in the middle. I love the bronco but think Ford has really fu$ked a lot of this reveal up...
This x1000. It wasn't so much about the little bit of money savings. Just knowing we weren't getting screwed.X-Plan meant I didn't need to negotiate anything. Now I need to go in and make a demand that they will laugh in my face about because it matters nothing to them to make a sale on a hot "sellers market" item.
I'm no longer in control of the sale, nor do I have assurance that it will be a fair deal. Now I have to take time out of my day and assert my asshole attitude in negotiation rather than from a friendly perspective.
All this back and forth is crap. I don't need more drama on crap like this, nor do I need more wasting of my time.
I'll see what my dealer says now that I have to actually talk to 'em.
Don't worry. I always vote the skew on purpose because polls, however meaningless, tend to freak people out.I don’t know so I won’t vote to skew the results. I do know that Ford is making me more nervous about buying new platform vehicle. At least my reservation is a MY22 so maybe I’m good haha.
