Phil Long does have a bad rep in this town with the military community, the commanders at Ft. Carson have deemed that place off limits to all soldiers, that part is fact.

The $5,000 ada markup was handwritten in on the window sticker. I don't really care that you are trying to defend their actions, what I have seen and what they said were what happened. Why would I come on here and trash talk a dealer for no reason?

When I go back in to look at the black one that they are getting I will get the salespersons name that fed me that line of crap. Until they come to their senses about what they have and price it accordingly i will never buy from them.
Here's the problem, every ST Phil Long owns has a factory sunroof so how do you explain that?
Talked to my internet guy down there, no AWD on the tangerine scream (only one they have on the lot currently). So seriously, do you have a picture of this AWD markup or anything to show me otherwise?

I don't doubt the $5,000, dealerships can ask whatever they want but it boils down to what they will sell it for.

You were asking for proof on the $5,000 markup but not for some reason you don't need it?

The guy was talking about putting it on for an additional $7,500 I did not say that they already did. Yes the dealer also said that they were the ones who put the moonroof in.

Look I am done arguing with you IDGAF if you don't believe me(dealers gotta stick together). I said what I said because that is exactly what they told me and yes they sure did have a $5,000 markup on it(handwritten in pen right on the sticker).

Defend their actions all you want, to me you sound like just as big a bullshitter as Phil Long does.

I proved that we have them listed at MSRP, you don't come here spouting lies that you cannot prove about AWD or moonroof. I can email everyone here window stickers that show OEM sunroofs on every ST currently in system.

Good luck buying a ST.

Someone just go get a pic of the hand written $5k mark up... that's kinda ridiculous IMHO. There are several folks that have posted that they've paid under MSRP for their ST, and many of us have deals at X plan.

BTW, yes, the ST is eligible for A plan, and Z plan, and D plan. There's a VOC we hosted on the North American ST Owners Club facebook page showing all of the discount plan prices for an Ingot Silver ST2 in Michigan: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

First off, imccrea, I don't like being called a lair. I come in here and talk about my experience with Phil Long and instead of you trying to help me like you say you do, you think I am slandering your "fine" company.

I went back to get the pic and I talked to the same salesman that I talked to before. His name is Robert and he is part of their internet sales team. Robert is still claiming to put the Focus RS AWD system into an ST. Well we all know that the RS is not AWD so who is he bullshitting?



Are you going to help me out, or are you going to continue to talk shit to me.

Thanks for proving my point, no aftermarket sunroof, no AWD listed on there for $7,500. Like I said, no one will make you buy from Phil Long.

I said before anyone can ask any price, it's what it sells for that is what matters. And we are more than happy to sell at any plan price or MSRP. And for that matter you can buy any of my incoming 3 ST's at whatever plan price you like, no pulsate, no protection package, nothing. It's metal, it can be replaced with another one.

Like I said I'm not a bullshitter either. All I asked for was proof of us adding a moonroof and AWD and despite Robert's 'saying we are', I don't see it.

I never said those were already listed options, Robert was saying those things. Why don't you call him, oh I am sure that he will deny everything...

So you like your salesmen to flat out lie to people. I thought that you would help but oh yeah you sell cars, so you are trained to lie to people.
