Sadly there are quite a few dealers that do that. I placed 2 orders on day 1 but for some reason the first one came up as Ace Ford in Woodbury NJ. From experience with them marking up Raptors $10, 000 over list I cancelled the reservation as at that time Ford would not allow you to change anything. I went with a dealer listed on B6G as no ADM. The law reads in NJ that dealers can sell at "fair market value". I believe your only arguement in court would be to show that $10K mark up far exceeds what the majority of dealers are doing for pricing to show that $10 over is not FMV. I know this from a court case I was involved in in NJ.

I would add, make sure to "upvote" the 1 star reviews so they show up as most relevant. Then report the 5 star as "conflict if interest".

Google will eventually sort it out, remove a combination of the 1 and 5 star reviews, but it will keep the dealership busy. There are more of us than them, so keep the 1 star rolling.

Here’s my review:

So let me get this straight, in the span of less then 1 day this dealer somehow gets 19 5-star reviews (including people with last names of folks listed as working here) after a few negative reviews. That’s not shady at all. Also this dealer is legitimately baiting and switching which you can verify by checking the prices on their Broncos online and by calling them to verify what they’re really charging ($10k+ over msrp by the way). Avoid this shady dealer!

By the way, hope you get some sort of action by Ford, even if it’s an order transfer. Hoping my dealer doesn’t pull this next month. I have a ton of correspondence from my dealer to me including acknowledgment they won’t charge any surprise fees but I’m still wary. Hopefully y’all will have my back if they screw me over last second.
I would start reporting/ flagging these as conflict of interest. Not sure how to? Check out the image attached.

The two with similar names to workers there I did report as a conflict of Interest. The others I don’t know for sure. Clearly shady as hell though. Tells you a lot about their integrity. Would avoid that dealer like the plague

I wonder how many customers Ford has lost for life will come out of this debacle
A few hundred. The problem is there will be several thousand with new broncos who paid the price and don't care.

So what are you trying to prove here by shitting in my thread?
You just attacked that other dude in a crazy way….so I was just pointing out that you had been the dude who was crapping on people “as idiots” for locking in a good deal. It’s a lesson to you to avoid crapping on people…because karma can be a beyotch. They’re just sitting their thinking “who is the idiot now?” With their locked in deal.

I've never met a Kim Polick, didn't know this name was some common.

Holy hell they’re adding more? Holy crap this dealer must also offer fortune telling, snake oil and someone to conjure dead spirits on their showroom floor too. Basically the shadiest dealer they could be!

Is it normal for so many people to write 5-star reviews within a 30 minute period?

I checked my local ford dealership and they get reviews at a pace of one or two every few days (but have almost twice the cumulative reviews of DCH).

Seems fishy, like they're using 5-star review generator code or put an email blast out to have people get them plugged reviews for a free oil change or something....

So with all these positive review shouldn't a larger platform be used? I'm curious if a local news station would be interested in knowing how this dealership operates? Heck what about car magazines? At some point we need to point the direction back to the consumer.

These idiots are definitely wise to the negative feedback thing. Take a look below, after a negative review was left 17 hours ago - mysteriously, 3 new 5 star reviews without any comments were left an hour later . . .

Holy cow...this dealer tactic with the fake 5 star reviews has to be one of the top scumbag moves I've ever seen.
