So sad 😥 All the dealerships around me EXCEPT for the one I selected (closest) is doing MSRP. Need to wait till Monday to call the helpline to change dealership. Guess a few days isn't so bad.

Did you remind your dealership that they won't get a sale on that vehicle AT ALL if you switch it to a different dealer?

The only reason I can think of that dealers would charge ADM for (as long as there are other dealers around that won't) is that they're counting on many reservation holders not realizing they can "Take their ball and go home", so to speak. Dealers have no leverage if they can't control the vehicle.

Nah, won't bother. Want to reward the dealerships that did the right thing to begin with. Not the ones you had to threaten. Also, they initially said MSRP. It was a conscious decision on their part.

Yeah, I'd be the same way if there's other dealers nearby that won't upcharge. Like you say, rather do business with them anyway (as long as it's not so far away as to be a major inconvenience, like hundreds of miles).

Was more just asking out of curiosity, and for the benefit of anyone with very limited dealership options. But people around big cities should have plenty of options.

I received in writing (email) from Serramonte Ford (in Colma, CA) that the will charge no ADM; they will honor X-Plan (if offered); and the $500 deposit is refundable.

I reached back to Towne Ford (in Redwood City, CA) and received the same commitment in writing (text).

Good info from many members. This forum will likely end saving many of us thousands of dollars. Well Done, all.

Yup.. gonna try a list of Ford dealerships who do not charge ADM (additional dealer markup).

For those of you with C8 vettes on order as well, I think we are rapidly entering an era where customers can be honest with OEMs:
NO ONE likes constant renegotiation and adversarial relationships where stress becomes part of the buying experience.
Negotiations with dealers sucks.
Get rid of it?

Can we sticky a list of dealers doing no ADM like the C8 site?

Just got an email response from San Tan Ford in Gilbert, AZ. They will not be doing any ADM, but will be doing their standard "Desert Protection Package" for $1299 that includes window tinting, door edge guards, a tire protection plan and nitrogen filled tires (gotta be at most $300 in value, right?).

He stated that Ford is not doing any plan pricing on these vehicles (I asked specifically about X-plan) but they could work something out for me on the $1299 price of that package.

All that said, per this forum, looks like there's a dealer up the road that will do X-plan pricing, so how does one go about switching dealers for this process?

Updated: Just got off the phone with Chapman Ford up in Scottsdale. The person had to research and call me back but he confirmed that they are not doing ADM, will honor any Ford Pricing programs and won't add on any nonsense (nitrogen, tint, clear bras, etc).
Thanks Evermore, as San Tan is also my dealer and Justin Wyss sent a generic email out, I responded and haven’t heard back, but it’s the weekend. I will not accept any “desert protection” package and for them to even mention that to you or want to negotiate is all I needed to hear to switch my business from them, Thanks for the update, I’ll be moving to Chapman Ford in Scottsdale also. You can let them know of the business they’re losing and the business Chapman is getting.
