I know there's a least a few other Utah buyers on these forums. Have any of you had any luck getting dealers to commit to any of the deals we're seeing from dealerships like Granger Ford, Laura Ford, and others? I've spoken with two dealerships here in Utah (Larry H Miller Superford and Performance Ford), neither of which will commit to any sort of pricing guarantees; LHM will supposedly honor MSRP but I couldn't get them to commit to $1,300 below invoice for X-Plan holders like Granger Ford. Have any of you fellow Utahns had any luck with any of the Utah dealerships?

not as many as I thought
I haven't checked yet. Larry H Miller Superford is the dealer I was assigned by zip code. I'm still not 100% sure I will pull the trigger for a new car and the thought of trying to haggle with them is not at all appealing.

Figured I'd wait to see the build and price info and commit to a purchase before I bothered the dealer. Thanks for the info though - I was hoping someone would post.

Right now I've got Granger on my short list with a mini roadtrip home to SLC through the badlands. to devils tower then home. I've never been through there. I think I can take a slower back road trip to the badlands from Granger and get a few hundred miles of reasonable break in but once I hit I-80 it will be hard not to set cruise at 82....

For me, unless I turn it into a vacation the economics don't make sense unless LHM are complete jerks and at that point I'd just walk away. While ford did a great job and it is the most I've wanted a specific new car ever, I still feel like I could walk away with no regrets.

Edit: just saw your crosstrek - so you are one of the 80% of the population with it, I'm in the other 20% (cheap bastards) who went with the base imprezza.

Chiming in just to say hello. I'm in a similar boat. I've got no reservation right now and I'm happy to wait, but might put down a reservation soon, possibly when B&P is available. Also thinking of driving back from Granger. I'm also a Subaru driver – a 2013 Outback with only 90K miles on it. It didn't everything I need, and I haven't had a car payment since 2009, so I'm happy to keep it that way for a while. But I've also fallen hard for the Bronco. I could get by with the Bronco Sport if it were just a little bigger, but I'd want the badlands anyway, and for that price I can get the 4dr Bronco, so that's where I'm at. I want the BD with auto and a hard top, but might go BB or base, or manual, to save a little. We'll see when pricing comes out.

I am in UT and planning on doing the Granger October $2k below invoice deal with a road trip home.

I did that with my truck, buying it Dallas and driving home over a couple days. Great fun!

I am currently at LHM Performance Ford also. But thinking to change to Granger if possible since it seems they are much more willing and aggressive to work with us. I am waiting to see what happens but if I can save a little with a road trip back I may do it. Just waiting for the B&P.

With Performance Ford right now, I emailed them 2 weeks ago and it's been crickets. I may switch to Ed Kenley. Anyone heard about their supposed "Free" "Lifetime Powertrain warranty?

Would there be enough interest in putting together a Utah group buy from Granger? If not I might join the Colorado group and drive to Mesquite NV.

My first reservation was through Ken Garff and haven't heard anything from them. They haven't replied to a few emails I sent either. I made a new reservation with Granger for the October deal and currently plan to road-trip it home from Iowa.

We'd probably have to find out from @Granger Ford if there are enough UT/NV/ID buyers to get group shipping to SLC. As of now, I'm planning on driving from Denver to SLC but SLC would be awesome, haha.

I think there might be enough UT/NV/ID buyers at Granger to get group shipping. I was reading the Colorado buyers thread and apparently they will facilitate shipping even if you are the only buyer in your region, the rates are just higher ($800+ I think); and, the more buyers you stack on shipping the lower the per vehicle rates are.

I put in an October reservation with Granger on top of my original July reservation at a local dealer. I'm definitely going get my Bronco from them, just need to decide if I road trip or take delivery close to home.
