GM allegedly sent a letter to dealers threatening to take action against those marking up. Glad to hear this garbage may stop soon.
Ford knows they totally botched the Bronco reservations…. They won’t admit it, but have being handling the Lightning much differently. Even once invited to order, people can still move their Lightning order to a different dealership and keep their allocation, order status. With the exception of some weighted distribution for ZEV states and the few orders dealerships were allowed to prioritize, orders are being invited off time stamp. Regardless of how many reservations a dealership may have. Dealerships can enter all their pricing online for the customer to configure and place the order. Any orders placed online are considered a contract price as in they can’t add further markups or other such nonsense later. Some of the real shady dealers have opted to only take orders in person and the general consensus on related forums is not to walk, but to run quickly away from those dealerships.Yes, Ford did the same same with their dealers on the Bronco. Hasn’t stopped them from marking them up $20-50K anyway. 😡
