Never saw the video.
Did the guy have a res, never get bottom line pricing with a signed contract and it showed up with a 10K mark up?
Essentially, yes

People need to stop paying these markups. Dealers have to sell cars to survive, if everyone stops paying they'll drop the adms. Unfortunately too many people have more money than sense and just dgaf if they are over spending or fucking up the market for the average person.
You should try buying a collector vehicle and see what that's like. You've been looking for a part for 3 years and one turns up, but the price $$$. Will you take a chance another will turn up for less or buy while you can?

That really doesn't work here.

These are (eventually going to be) mass produced vehicles. I get the late production start, chip issues, and hard top debacle will limit the MY21 and possibly MY22 production numbers, but MAP is built out to make 250K units a year with a 60/40 Bronco/Ranger ration. 125K plus units a year does a collectors item make.

As someone Who manages the system of an Electric Utility Company, that hurts me at my core.

We've been saying most of this for a year and a half now and production has barely started. Many either can't or won't wait for whatever their reason is and get it while they can regardless of the price being ridiculous. I wouldn't do it. There are other choices available in a reasonable amount of time.

Does raise the question of what Ford's guaranteed 'price protection' even means if a dealer can surprise a reservation holder with a $10k ADM.
Seriously! That’s just price guaranteeing the dealers margin!

My assigned is Earnhardt. So far interaction has been soso. Nothing to complain about but nothing spectacular either.
I am with Earnhardt as well and in the same boat no vin/build date. I was curious if they told you they would only charge msrp?

They told me in January only msrp no markups and I got a ordersheet with pricing via email. It's not signed but I would like to think the email thread is the signature.

Looks like that dealership want's some publicity, BBB and Google reviews (not all dealers are like this) I know they need to make money but I am sure Ford didn't anticipate their Dealers Treating customers and ex employees this way.

Man I didn't even get to see the video but by the comments here this dealer is a top contestant for douchebag dealer of the year award.

All the people who chime in that their price should have been negotiated at"ordering" time we get it... lost dealers are sucking at communications and have no clue. I didn't get a purchase order either and thankfully my dealer is honoring MSRP..

But this video sucks to watch for this couple.

Any body that has a reservation should be charged msrp and that’s it! They can mark up cancelled orders and there own stock whatever they want . But reservations that people have waited for and priced out on the ford site should be just that. These dealers should be shut down period!

My sales rep (Amanda) has told me the same. I also got an unsigned order sheet with pricing. I asked about negotiations when I first placed my order and was told no lower than MSRP+Fees. Was also told that I couldn't get a purchase agreement or any other docs until delivery date was scheduled.

So far they've seemed pretty facts only about the whole transaction so by no means do I want to assume that they'll screw me over but stories like in this thread definitely make me concerned. Could definitely be using money that's going to the Bronco for a house instead so I'm on a very fine line if they do choose to markup.

Yea I was going to say the same thing. The guy even said "if this Bronco was for me, there's definitely a good chance I could flip it. But it's for my wife." Sounds like there's some history there of buying and flipping Ford's for profit. Makes you wonder why he thought he wouldn't need a purchase order in advance.
Yep, I picked up on that as well. If he's worked there that long, there is definitely history and he knew he should have a purchase order when ordering.
You don't think they could ditch the agreement and still charge ADM?

The "you should have a signed price agreement..." is great advice after the fact, I have one as well. I still have to trust that the dealership will honor this non-binding document.

An unscrupulous dealer doesn't care. Frankly, what are you going to do about it?
The way I look at it is this...

Everybody buying a Bronco has to agree to a price at some point. Why not agree to it BEFORE you order? It's not rocket science.
