is your MME a First Edition?I got Options . . . 2.25% with $2,500 bonus cash (varies by region on the bonus cash)
I will say it took them awhile, but I had primed them for it weeks in advance. They said they have not written a balloon options contract for as long as they can remember.
I’m going to go do the financing tomorrow at the dealer. I have the Ford Options website showing how the program works bookmarked so that I can show them when I get there. Is this all I should need or are there actual program numbers I need to show and if so what are those program numbers.When you go in to see the dealer give them the program numbers for the ford options program
and the ford credit rebate program. That's what I had to do. 5 hours at the dealer . Ugh.

Here is where the dealers can find all the information about Options on the FMC Dealer site:
FMCDealer » Finance (tab) » Consumer Finance Programs (left side menu) » Ford Options
On the Ford Options page the dealer will see the Options Payment Estimator, eContract instructions, Ford Options Handbook and Fact Sheet.

All car mfgs face recalls from time to time. Ford is having monumental trouble even getting this product into customer hands. Some of the supply and shipping shortages are out of their control, and some are not. The dealer’s being totally ignorant about the MME and Ford Options - it’s just one problem on a looong list or problems for this rollout.your perspective is very far off.

what's happening here? no.
They are confusing the Current MME Options program for a similarly named older program.So I went in to my local Ford dealer who is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on Ford's website and they had never heard of Ford Options. I did a deal on a Mach E yesterday, and they were willing to rip up our financing through their bank (not Ford Credit) if Options turned out to be a better deal. I was satisfied with the deal we came to with their financing so, no skin off my nose. And with that in mind they were going to call Ford and find out what Options was, and how they were supposed to do it
But, today after they called Ford either Ford is sandbagging or this dealer is trying to sand bag me. Without taxes, of course, a Ford Options quote on Ford's website comes out to $602 with my configured mileage and Mach E options with a 2.28% rate. The guy at the dealership is quoting me, after taxes, over $870 because "the lowest, best possible rate is over 5%"
Are people actually getting 2.28% with Ford options? Is this dealer just BSing me to keep me with his preferred lender?
Here's the problem (I had the same issue with my dealer): Ford Options has not been explained in sufficient detail to the Ford dealer network. My dealer, located in Southeast Michigan, had never even heard of it. It's a brand new program, only available (for now) on the Mach E, and there are still so few MMEs in the wild that most dealers might sell only a couple of the cars. It's a good idea from Ford, poorly executed.So I went in to my local Ford dealer who is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on Ford's website and they had never heard of Ford Options.
