not to mention when some incentives go bye bye if certain stipulations arent met...for instance who in their right mind would finance through ford at their regular rates?.....

 

Me.   So I can take the extra $750 or $1000 and refinance it with my credit union in 2 more months.

fordman....maybe from the customers standpoint, but from the Dealers standpoint if its refinanced before those initial payments are made Ford charges back the dealer the rebate that was given up front.....

What Dean said. It doesn’t hurt the customer but it does hurt the dealer.

I didn't realize that.  I had heard that it didn't hurt the dealer and there was no time limit.  Sounds like maybe I received some misinformation.

its a pretty shitty scenario...we do it to assist the customer but sometimes get the short end of the stick. Same gos for if we extend other rebates to consumers ( ie upfit rebate on commercial vehicles ) Im currently chasing a customer for two invoices for Wraps on Transit connects. Theres $700 in rebates...and if he gives us the middle finger regarding invoices the DEALER gets charged back. There is literally a division in ford thats sole purpose is to find rebates and the like to charge back dealers...and they are A-holes when it comes to nit picking BS......sad thing is sometimes we wont pass rebates on to legitimate clients for fear of the aforementioned issues...

Seriously?  There are plenty of folks who can afford to by nice vehicles.  Some do that yes, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's a majority.


Idk - I know way too many people making a $250k salary that couldn't afford a Focus, let alone an F150. It's a lot more prevalent than people let on.

I was told three months also when I got my SHO-not a huge deal-plus when I refinanced, I went to 5 years anyway because the rate was better and the payment wasnt that much more.
