Thanks
We currently do not offer any plans on Raptor's or GT500's. Any specialty vehicle you get screwed on, I predict that the ST will not have X plan to start, but if inventory levels increase they will.

Personally I doubt the ST will be any different
Not true sorry, a Raptor for instance does not list X/A/Z/D plan at the bottom like a Focus. A GT500 didn't until last year, however Ford does not reimburse the dealer for a D Plan GT500 if we did it.

Correct, we get the yellow ones delivered here once in a while but they sit here for months before they're picked up.

I posted that based on experience in the mustang world. when the GT500 first came out they were hard to get but I had 3 dealers say they would give x-plan on them if I wanted to buy. I don't know about the Raptors because I was never interested in them enough to check.

Now it is entirely possible they were telling me that in order to get me into the dealership and then tell me they made a "mistake" wouldn't surprise me at all if that were the case LOL

True when they came out they were that way. Now we list it but there is no reimbursement for X-Plan GT500's. If a dealer wants to sell it for X plan they still make $2,000 granted they haven't had it for more than 60 days.

cool. makes me feel a LOT better LOL! my build is scheduled for next week so it will sit about a month. My delivery date is set for the 28th of Oct but I may see if I can get them to move it a week earlier so the dealer can get some stuff done on it before I pick it up. I would like to avoid having to rent a car while they get it ready LOL! ...


thanks for the help man. awesome to have someone willing to jump in like you do

*Important Update*

Due to financial reasons I have left my current Ford dealership. I have already secured a job through another Ford dealership in town but don't start til next week.

Sorry if you have dire questions that requires me to have Ford access but I should be up and running within a week.

Thanks!

Ira

That mean you going to be making more at the new dealership? Awesome! :)

Anyway,

Does the dealership get a kickback on financing with Ford? So for instance, if I were to finance a $22,999 Focus with Ford, does the dealer get an additional kickback because it was financed with Ford?(I'm thinking with the promotional 2.9,3.9,4.9, etc)

Also, do you guys get made aware of promotions before they go live? Or do you find out with the rest of us?
