Good to know. Another good resource just in case October ordering opens and whatever happens.

May the odds be in our favor 🥂
A lot of the Arizona folks did some kind of group deal with a dealer in Casa Grande. I can't remember details, it was a long time ago.

I'm team Granger all the way.🥰🥰

But I do realize that having to fly to Iowa to pick up your Bronco and then having a 1401-mile roadtrip home isn't for everyone.😁😁

Nobody's crap detectors went off watching that video?

Seriously?

You just roll up on your dealership see your Bronco, make a beeline for it but no sales lot hedgehog pops up to say, "Hey, Folks! Welcome to the Moon?"

Truck hasn't been PDI and you just start poking around but still nobody notices you and the wife?

You start popping the top and folding it back and still no one comes up? Most dealers don't want any customer to just start screw with any Bronco until they give you the rundown. Don't want no latches or trim broken by mistake or gawd forbid, scratch the paint.

No Key Fob but you hit the start button and she fires up so you decided to take off on a test drive with supposedly no Fob, D-Tag or anybody from the dealership wanting to hop in the back, ask where you're going, how long or is there enough gas? And nobody welcoming you back to yuck it up?

You go back to the service bay to see the other Bronco that showed up and nobody is around to talk Bronco, Say Hi or tell you that you need to quit recording in the service bay.

Naturally no video of the sales negotiation but discuss the $10K ADM but no mention of what they were offering for your Tundra trade-in? Just have to wait for the boss to get back. I guess the Boss can't make a discision over the phone.

Then when the excitement builds and everybody is worried about the outcome? Pull down your original v-blog and go dark on your YT and IG channels.

Yep, no crap to be detected with Mr & Mrs YT Auto Influencer, it's all the dealer's fault.

No, I think there’s some shenanigans going on and you know how you have to deal with shenanigans.

I seriously considered Granger, but $1000 off invoice on a Base minus $1500 to ship from IA to Phoenix would actually end up higher than MSRP.

Earnhard has told me repeatedly no ADM and no mandatory dealer add-ons for customer orders. Their communication is terrible, but they don't seem sleazy.

Both SanTan and Rob Horne only said no ADM, but neither would commit on their BS mandatory add on crap. I swear the SanTan guys are so sleazy I need a shower every time I step foot on their lot.

The last straw? This is a horrible video. I am so done with Ford. Ford the company and particularly the dealerships!! I have a reservation date of 7/16/21 and order date of 2/17/21. I have been informed by Ford that I will not get a 2021. The dealership doesn't return phone calls. I really wanted a Bronco badly. But at what cost?? The wait is bad enough. The lack of communication from every direction.... beyond frustrating. But now, to think you could wait all of this out only to be lied to at the last minute about the price? I have such a bad taste in my mouth for Ford that I really don't know if I want to own one. I have owned many cars, never a Ford and now perhaps never will. This is my first post on this forum. Have been reading it for over a year. Limping along with my old 2005 Honda CRV clamped and duct taped together!!

Do you realize that dealers set their own prices, not Ford?

My sales rep (Ashley) 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.

Let's hope they do what they say. I'm working with Amanda so at least now we know two sales reps are saying the same thing.

I agree, but a lot has changed since most placed their orders. Some dealers may find themselves in a situation where they need to do unpleasant things if they plan to survive. Dealer lots around here are nearly empty. I've never seen anything like the way it is now.
Still not the way to do business. Regardless of how there business is doing. This is the kind of thing that will wreck there name and the service they get from existing customers.

I think it was Jones Ford. Not sure if that deal ever materialized or not?

Seems you're missing some key points. He's worked for that dealership for 19 years. And a guy came out as soon as they pulled up that his wife was yelling at about the mark-up.

She was upset about the ADM in the truck and she got more upset when she saw the Bronco and fell in love with it. Remember his back talk about she picked out all the options but never really saw the Bronco yet. If she was yelling at somebody, did they just flip her the Fob and run back inside?

Even if you’re right, there’s still something fishy including his supposed 19 years working there if he was full time, part time or just a spot mechanic.

Correct.
Not really sure how that explains your original post about it being BS.

I have a feeling I'll have a hard time getting anything signed. I was basically told no documents until delivery is scheduled when I placed my 2021 order. Not sure if that's going to change when I have to reorder for 2022 but will definitely be one of the first things I ask. I imagine they'll asking me to make a deposit if i want something signed. All assumptions. I'll find out in October or whenever.

Well the feedback looks encouraging . . w @Redeye84 & @AZ_Liberty . .
You all having basically same experience w Earnhardt . . .
Looks like you picked a decent honest dealer . . . good news . . no worries . . .

She wasn‘t bitching and complaining while they were poking around the Plastic, None during the test drive and she wasn’t acting to upset back in the Tundra about leaving her Bronco Baby. My wife wouldn’t have been crying but she would have been upset enough to be calling that dealership, owner, GM, SM and sales folks every name in the book. And she would be calling them by their name like most folks that she knew for 19 years.

They were both pretty calm for having been so royally screwed over by an employer and folks they supposedly knew for 19 years.

Sorry but they’re just not passing the smell test
