Worried about the dealer I picked (was closest). They had ADM on the first Hybrid Escape so I bought it at a different dealer.

Might hedge my bet and also reserve another one with a trusted dealer. Not sure the X-plan can be used. If available, would the X plan 'kill' any ADM?

I can confirm no ADM at Mel Hambelton Ford in Wichita Kansas.

I just visited there and talked with one of the managers. They were great and seemed excited about it. They said they thought there were about 10 Mach E reservations to this dealership so far. Including some from employees. Which he told me they are not allowing employee discount pricing on these.

As someone who lived through efforts to get me to pay ADM in 2007 with my Shelby, or in 2013 with my Boss, I wasn’t going to leave anything to chance this time. I emailed my assigned sales person, I’m one of the few I guess that got a call from the dealer within 48 hours of my reservation on day one, and asked about ADM. His repLy was no ADM for those who reserved but there may be for later or off the lot purchasers if it comes to that.

My suggestion, based on what I saw then, and the experience of others, is to contact your dealer and get it in writing. Do not rely on a conversation with someone who may not even be working there next year.

My dealer is MCLARTY DANIEL FORD in Bentonville AR.

I'd suggest giving them a call and asking to speak to whoever is running the Mach-E reservations list. The Ford dealers in Tacoma, Bellevue and Snohomish aren't so I would imagine Puyallup would be the same since it'd be suicide to do otherwise.

Yup.. gonna try.
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?
WHAT IS ADM

Looking for no ADM dealers in the Washington, DC area. Academy Ford in Maryland has stated they “don’t know if there will be a markup.” Also stated they are not likely to get a vehicle for customers to test drive.

Don’t know if this will prove true. This is what the customer rep told me. FYI.

How is ADM usually designated? Does it actually say "Additional Dealer Mark-up" on the purchase contract? Or is it hidden in some other wording?

I know Destination Charge is right on the window sticker, so I assume that's common and non-negotiable.

In my state, there's usually a fixed D&H (Dealer Handling Fee) charge. It's $479 at the dealership I chose, applies to all vehicles.

Other than sales tax, any license/registration fees, and possibly a small "paperwork" fee, I assume that's all we should be charged to make it a "fair" deal, right?

I know sometimes they try to slip an "advertising charge" in there. I made the mistake of letting them do that to me one time.

I don't know if every state is the same but every time I have seen dealers ask ADM it it will be on the window sticker slapped on as market adjustment. If where you are there is very little ADM going on then you'll probably be fine.

Unfortunately In CA there appears to be a never ending supply of idiots with more money than sense so ADM is rife :(


See picture in link below for window sticker with ADM as Mkt Adj
