Sheehy Ford in Springfield. I have contacted a bunch of dealers in the area, and none seem to know anything about it. Most just stop talking to me. They at least kept trying to learn, but then said "because there are no Ford Dealers" in Washington DC, they consider it the DC Region.

They then told me the restriction was based on home address, not dealer address when I asked how far away from DC I would have to go for it not to be considered "DC".

I am going to keep trying other dealers.

I live in Pa ($2500 rebate) and my dealer i ordered thru is in Md ($1000 rebate) I didnt know this at the time. Im curious if anyone knows if the rebate zip code is based on the customer address or dealers address?

I've heard that it's based on the customer's address. Check with Ford or your dealer's finance department for confirmation.

Hope to see ya'll driving around in the area. Any other NoVA buying experiences? I saw mentioned that Ted Britt Ford was calling in a rep to help them get their system sorted for Options.
I have a reservation for a GT and have selected Sheehy of Springfield; this is their response:


  1. We will be honoring MSRP, no ADM

  2. We will also be honoring X-Plan pricing

  3. All deposits towards a Mach-E build will be non-refundable. The reason being is Ford penalizes any purchases that are contracted in any other way but the way it was ordered.
Any experience with Sheehy of Springfield?

Thanks for posting, I will hopefully have a lot more experience with them in the next week or so. Will post back update. I also confirmed #1 and #2.... #3 is interesting since last time we spoke about the deposit (June) they weren't sure at the time if refundable. I have read here about them being penalized for orders that don't sell to the original reservation holder.

What has yet to be confirmed is how the Options program will be handled and how THAT experience goes. Unless @emooretc can speak on that?
Let's see...

Confirmation that Ted Britt Ford now knows how to process a Ford Options deal. And, they got both incentives correct (total of $1,100 off).

It took them over two weeks to get the Options contract to work, but they let me take the car while they were learning the process.

Always double check the numbers - no matter which dealership.

Welp... my car is here. In the wrong color. 😫😩😢😭😭😭😭😡🤬🤬😵

I have no further words at this time. Blood pressure is rising, vision going blurry. Being too dramatic? Probably. Life goes on. But for now I am in despair.

IB
Dealer updated the order for me back in October from IB to RR. Everywhere online showed this update and was also reflected on the window sticker online.

So, the car arrived in Blue when the window sticker even said red?! Wow.

I wonder what color mine will arrive in, since I switched from Iconic Silver to Star White.

Stand by. Sales manager whose off today called me back. Says it has to be a mistake by sales person. He's not in but will find out. There were three coming in this week, IB, Black, AND RR.

The sales person is probably wrong, and needs to learn how to read an invoice. Seeing is believing, I need proof of life at this point.

Wow. I have my fingers crossed that the RR that's coming in is yours. I am looking forward to seeing the RR in person - hint, hint - so I can compare it to the GB. I like bright colors.

My original order was for an IB (because it was going to be my wife's car), but in December I was able to switch to a cancelled order on a GB First Edition - which, obviously, I got. At that time, I realized that the chances of the Mach-E being my wife's car were very slim. I'm still trying to convince her to sell her car since she hasn't driven since last February when everything got shut down for Covid. But, that's a tough battle. Meanwhile, I have to suffer with 3 cars. ;-)

No complaints so far for Sheehy. They've been pretty responsive to my questions although I probably know more than they do. I'll be there tomorrow talking to them so will let you know if any problems

Congratulations. I'm hoping to see some of you driving around the area.

I drove from Vienna to Ashburn yesterday and got lots of looks, thumbs-up, and WTF-is-that-stares.

Oh, and I still have a blast driving this thing.

I haven't carried the fob since day 2.

Hey! Awesome. Yes the salesman just texted me "proof of life" of the rapid red, and called to apologize. I'm not going to get excited until I see numbers and the deal is done at this point. Keep in touch, and I'll do the same tomorrow!
