I'm trying to decide between Chalmers and Power Ford. Seems like both will honor the plans and no ADM. The only cars I've purchased recently are Honda's because I don't want to play the games that the American dealers like to play.

FWIW: If I stay local, I am going to go with Chalmers. I spoke with one of their sales managers a few weeks ago, a guy who is a very good friend of my neighbor. He said they do not force any extra add-ons down buyer's throats, won't be adding any markup beyond MSRP, and will honor X-Plan pricing. What he said and the way they handle the finance portion of a purchase gave me a good vibe about the dealer, in fact exactly the opposite vibe I got from Capitol in Santa Fe. All that said, I am still unsure of what I will do. If the Texas group buy effort pans out close enough to me, I may go that way. I may also go with Granger, just based on my excellent experiences with Albert on this site.

Not a bad plan, I was thinking about traveling to Odessa, TX since that is fairly close.

I would do Granger if they weren't so far away....

Hopefully we'll get some clarity when B&P actually gets released.

I still have not heard from anyone since I made my reservation.

The Texas group buy is nearing its decision on a dealer, AFAIK. If they were going through Midland/Odessa, I would be ecstatic since it's only 6 hours away from me. But it's not central to most of the Texas residents of course, who are largely on the I-35/I-45 corridor. I think they are homing in on a DFW-area dealer. My wife has family in North Texas/East Texas that makes it easy for me to buy through a dealer there if that's how the group goes. Good to have options.

FYI for folks in northern/central New Mexico, there is a Colorado Group Buy effort now with Granger in Iowa. Vehicles will be truck shipped to the Denver area for pickup.

See details here.

Given that the Granger discount in CO ($1300 with X-Plan) would be reduced by $425 for the shipping from Iowa to Denver, and Odessa isn't that much different for gas (at least for me), what makes Sewell an attractive deal for you?

Nothing really, I think Granger is the best option at this point.

I'm thankful for the simplicity of X-Plan, but not everyone has that option. Based on their "whatever" attitude, I'm not planning to stay with Capitol. Hoping for better deals in ABQ or neighboring states.
For $25, a yearlong membership to Mustang Club of America, everyone DOES have that option...

Head over to Ford's website and reserve your trim of choice, and Ford will gladly take your $100. Your reservation should then show up in your Ford account. To generate an X-Plan PIN, which is good for 12 months and you will need to give to the dealer at the time of purchase, there are a few options:
  1. Sign up for Mustang Club of America membership for $25 and wait 2 months to become eligible to generate a PIN on the MCA website
  2. Check if your employer is a Ford partner, and if so, you can generate a PIN now
  3. If you are a Veterans Advantage member, you can generate a PIN right now
  4. Or you have owned at least 100 shares of Ford stock for six months or more, you can send proof of ownership to Ford and they will send you a PIN
Do a lot of research here to decide which dealer you want to take delivery from. You can change the dealer that Ford automatically assigns you when you reserve ONCE before Oct. 31. Choose wisely and good luck :)

So is Chalmers is the best bet here in NM?

I'm betting the NM dealership has a huge "documention fee", which is of course, stupid. The taking of the reg papers etc. to the court house, part of selling a vehicle, is added on by the dealer, in the amount of 400-500 dollars! The eight and a half percent sales tax in SF is something else to consider. I always wondered why a state with Income tax, has a high sales tax. Here in Tennessee we do not have any income tax, having both would be BAD.

Possibly, but X-Plan is the key. It sets the baseline of expectations and a trusted sales manager at Chalmers has told me they will play fair if I bring X-Plan to them. Texas or Colorado group buys are strong options for me up her in Northern NM.

Many more states do have income tax than don't. But I've lived in two of the 9 that don't, and it does make a difference.
