    2019 Expedition Production Information

    When I used it, it didn't show much progress beyond check in the order placed circle...however, at the end of that row of progress indicators, it showed an expected arrival date.

    2018 vs 2019 Pricing - Platinum Edition

    I did an X-Plan search in your area. X-Plan on a (White Platinum paint) 2018 Platinum Max 4X4 with HD Towing and 2nd row buckets is $76,276 (and that's including the $3,250 rebate). That's on a vehicle with a MSRP of $83,185. Vehicle is at Beechmont Ford. You might be able to do better, but with a trade, get ready to play some games.
  6. Isn't the help on this forum great?

    2019 Expedition Production Information

    According to ice-capades' latest post, production on the 2019s was supposed to begin on Monday. I have had one on order since early August. My assumption has been that initial production always starts out with dealer stock units for a period of time and, once there are no production glitches then they can start including customer orders into the mix. Before I bug my salesman for a VIN# or scheduling date, can some insider educate me on how things are going?

    Must be a lot of well-off customers around there, with "money is no object" mentalities.

    2019 Expedition Production Information

    Well, we went out and ordered a 2019 yesterday. After months of trying to find what we wanted locally, we decided against ordering a 2018, and having it already be a model year old by the time we'd have it delivered. Ordered a 301A Limited Max 4X4 with the Special Edition Package. Equipment wise, it specs out to be a virtual twin to the 302A, only with black 22" rims instead of polished and somewhere near $1,300 less. Now anticipating a late November/December delivery and hoping Ford will be offering any kind of "incentives."

    2011 MKX excessive cranking before starting

    Thanks for your suggestion. I'll try that and the scanner too.
  11. I've observed that the first time my wife starts her MKX (with 90K+ miles) in the morning, it seems to crank excessively before starting. There is no "check engine" light, but after a Google search, I suspect a possible mass airflow sensor issue. Could there be stored codes that don't cause a warning light, but could be retrieved with a scanner?

    Anyone with an auto transport recommendation?

    Raptors are like the goose that lays golden eggs for dealers. It was his experience that every local dealer wanted him to buy from them but none of them were receptive to accepting delivery or doing any prep on a high-dollar vehicle they didn't sell w/o demanding serious "handling fees." They all further hinted that they probably couldn't be very helpful if any cosmetic issues occured during shipment from the factory--because that would be between Ford and the selling dealership. Truck arrived in perfect condition with under 4 miles on the clock, the same as the shipper's paperwork stated, so no joy rides were taken en route. There was a lot of severe weather in the middle of the country...but after the truck arrived. Believe me, he saved way more on the purchase than the cost of shipping; which was about equal to what the air fare, fuel, and lodging costs would have been to go and drive it back himself. Thanks again for everyone's suggestions, but it's time to put this thread to bed.

    Running board fails to deploy

    Ford licensed the right to make their own version of the AMP Research power steps. They are different in look and the Ford steps have a longer delay before retracting. The biggest difference between the two is that AMP will sell you a motor, or any other component singly where Ford markets the entire step with motor and idler. For the kind of money they want for a single step, you could order the top-shelf AMP steps and pay to have them installed, maybe get something for your working side, and still have money left over. Then, it anything fails, it will be "affordable." Go to electric step website for pricing.

    2018 remote start not working

    How much fuel is in the tank? Won't start if fuel level is too low.

    Yes, he tried Sanderson. Also Berge (where his employer buys all their company vehicles), Jones (our family has bought nine new vehicles there). They all wanted to deal on in-stock trucks and at well above MSRP. The prize went to Rodeo Ford (Earnhardt)...they were asking $25K over MSRP (on an order no less). My other son is shopping for a new (loaded) Super Duty diesel. His best price was at a dealer in Minnesota...another long winter drive if he were to buy it there; but their offer started well below "invoice."
