There is a reason a lot of dealerships are called "stealerships"
The dealer in this case ruined their reputation over a few thousand bucks.
If they lost only one or two future customers because of this story then it was a wash/loss for them.
Personally I would never buy anything from them or a dealer like them and if I had made my order from them I would change it, even if it delayed the delivery of my Bronco.
This guy obviously caved with the caveat that he would make nice with them on You-Boob to help them recover their reputation, to each his own but I wouldn't have done that.

No joke. I live in DFW and am 100% sure I will get the same bullsh!t.

My dealer (North Central Ford) added $5k ADM when I put my order in. At the time I was like, "whatever, f#ck it." I was assuming they would pull crap like that, so I rolled with it while they gave me some total BS reason (something about build costs fluctuating - which was a total lie - I actually just laughed at the sales rep when she tried to explain). When they try to go above that $5k ADM I will go ballistic and create a scene.

My wife is an attorney, so we are currently doing some legal work to prepare for when we go in (if my Bronco ever actually gets built). We will record the whole situation and be filing agressive lawsuits for anything they do which could be a violation of civil statute.

Since I have access to freegal (free legal) I am really gonna f#ck with these A-holes.

I am not sue-happy. I have never sued anyone. But with so many on here getting screwed by their dealers, I feel I have a responsibility to f*ck them right back for all the people without access to a free lawyer.
What will you do if the dealer tells you to get lost? They can refuse to sell for any reason other than protected classes, race, religion, etc.

Honestly if they pulled that shit on me, I'd run the smear campaign of a lifetime if I were promised MSRP.
If a dealer tried to add a markup or alter the deal after it was agreed upon when ordering, I would have an attorney serving a cease and desist order. They can either honor the deal and sell to me, or it can sit there in the showroom all roped-off so people can’t touch until it gets sorted. If they try to fight it and it takes forever, I’ll walk after submitting an order for the next model year elsewhere… They may not end up selling it to me, but will wish they had.

I’ve bought lots of vehicles over the years. I always get the price in writing at the time I place the order. If they try to alter that, they’re only cutting their own throat. Pricing is locked for them as soon as the the order is accepted into Ford’s system.

This story is real. Not faked or staged. I know this dealer, Moon Township Ford. I will not shop there again.

I don’t personally know the guy or his wife. But I know him through networks in this city. He’s just a guy, with a family, a real day job, an enthusiast, and his wife wanted a Bronco. Yes, he hopes to “grow” his internet video channel with the Bronco. Good for him.

I suspect he felt loyal to Moon Ford because of personal relationships he has at the dealer. They preyed on that loyalty. Not surprising to me based on my experience with Moon Township Ford.

Man I'm glad I'm not alone, both my wife and I watched this video and came out of it with the impression that something was off. I have had shitty dealings with a sleazy dealership and this guys emotions don't add up. He is constantly reinforcing the dealerships actions because he knows he was going to the same thing when that second bronco came in. This guy was going to mark up his second bronco and sell it to people who didn't reserve like the rest of us or who have the "extra" money just laying around. He is no better than the people that hoarded hand sanitizer and disinfectant in the middle of 2020...

Going with Granger is more than just saving money. It's the peace of mind, being able to sleep at night, not stressing all day, up-tick in blood pressure, wondering if your dealer's gonna screw you over. It looks like the nightmare stories have people worried. That's a lot of hand wringing and sweating between now and the day your Bronco arrives. Granted I'm only in MN, but I can rest easy knowing I'm with Granger. I can vouch for them as can others out here, their communication and are a class act. I recently purchased a Bronco Sport from them, below MSRP. No fuss no muss, happy as a clam. Can't wait for my Bronco to come in, very happy to make another trip to Granger.
Being in Arizona, the $1000 off invoice was like a break even event for me. But when they did the special $2k off invoice for October 2020 new reservations I jumped on it.

I'm very glad I did. Like you said, I sleep better at night.😁

I had the conversation with my dealer in Southern Oregon upon reserving my Bronco last year. I said at the time, if you markup, I walk. If it arrives, when ever, and you mark up, I walk. Any kind of shenanigan's before, during or after, I walk. The rig is not a need but a want... So, we'll see...
They would prefer that we all walked away and they could sell everyone with ADM.. walking is no big threat.

These videos don't add up. We don't know what they offered for the trade-in, so reducing the price to $5000 and giving $1000 more for the trade-in in means nothing if we don't have all the facts.

It would be different if there's not a trade-in.

Did you sign a contract for MSRP plus 5k? If so you don't have a leg to stand on.. You sound like a real stand up guy- NOT

I've lurked on 6g for over a year but never registered to post anything- until now.

Everyone has dissected this video 100 ways to Sunday and I have a different take...This rig was ordered for his wife- not him.

He couldn't even let his wife have the excitement of being the proud, first driver of her own bada** truck. Just sayin'... I would have words for my husband if he tried to take mental ownership of my girl when she gets here next month.

Mental ownership 😂 that’s new to me. Perhaps he wasn’t to make sure his wife’s New ride does not have any mechanical issues

Nah....we know what he was compensating for-and it wasn't mechanical!
