This is why Detroit 3 are giving up cars, buyers demand rebates. So, only sell the products that make huge money after such discounts.
But regarding Chevy trucks, best thing they can do to add value is merge with GMC brand. Some buyers are willing to pay more to have it.
I appreciate your efforts and would like a one time status for my Mustang, ordered 11/1/19. VIN 1FA6P8CF0K5157379
I am assuming you have more accurate info than VVR and Customer Vehicle Ordering System, and am aware of steering wheel issue.
Thanks in advance!
I am a diehard Ford blue blood for 40yrs. I currently have 3 Fords and one almost Ford (Cobra replica). In Oct I sold my 2013 Mustang GT and then went to dealer to buy new one. None available like i wanted in area, so I ordered one, 11/1/19. Was told 8-10 weeks. No problem, so i ordered the car. In about 6 weeks i received an acceptance of the order, a VIN and a "schedule to date" of 17 Feb 19. I was told to track the order using the Customer Order Tracking System website. Well the dates have come and gone and no explanation until today which had a generic statement about suppliers. The dealer has not been able to get any update on delivery either, only that car was in production. I know about the issue with Magna Ride and steering wheels. My issue is that no one can tell my dealer (therefore me) the exact status of my car. Its like manufacturing and sales are not connected. I know 8,000 cars without steering wheels is hard to get resheduled, but to not be able to get an estimated delivery date now is hard to believe. Would be nice to have a date! The bigger problem is that it will be over 5 months to get me a Mustang. The dealership (owns about 6) appears to have had allocation and he's big enough that he owns a new Ford GT. I know Ford is reducing car sales, but Mustang is a premiere model and to have to wait 5-6 months is ridiculous. If it was a GT350 or 500 or GT, maybe, but a Mustang GT!!!! OBTW once it's built, i'm told it could be 2-3 weeks to get delivered. I already have my trailer hooked up to my F150 and can be there in 8 hours to pick it up 👍
I have a 2017 Edge and recently had the panoramic roof crack like crazy. Not the typical spider crack, but curvy, non-uniform, multiple shapes. Dealer says not warranty because they found a slight chip. Anybody else had this problem? Worse case have to submit to insurance.
