Good news, Galpin Ford in Van Nuys California has confirmed no ADM:
"I just spoke with my Department Manager who tells me we can guarantee there wont be a mark up in price for the Mach E in our part. Our sales price will be the price listed by Ford as the MSRP.
If you want to place your order with us, you will need to cancel your excisting order and place a new order choosing Galpin Ford as your dealership."


I have my order placed with Star Ford in Glendale, actually. Still waiting to get confirmation they will not add ADM. The Star salesperson I spoke with said he didn't think so, that the Mach-E isn't quite rare enough like a Shelby and that he had not heard any plans to do so -- but he couldn't promise. Said he would check with his general manager and get back to me....

But is the 2nd point from Galpin above correct, if I want to switch to Galpin?
I thought we can pick/switch our dealer at the time of ordering?

I don't want to cancel and lose my chance to get my Mach-E in 2020 (especially with all these battery shortages!)

@jksu , I wouldn't risk canceling and loosing my place in line unless you were sure you didn't want to get the vehicle from the current listed dealer (especially if you have a FE on reserve). Someone called Ford and Ford said you could have the new dealer take over the reservation at the time of ordering, At this point in time, I would trust Ford more than a dealer about knowing the best procedure. I suggest you call their customer support at 800-392-3673 if you want to do something now instead of waiting.

Please let us know if you hear back from Star Ford - that's my current dealer, but I would switch to Galpin if Star Ford plans to charge ADM. I'm also wondering if either (or both) of them will accept X plan pricing, as I'd change dealers for that...

I do not think my dealer has a clue on what to do about selling the Mach.
Too early in the game to get straight answers. Sure call them and ask your
questions. They will be there to make you happy. Then call them again later
but first add *67 when you call to block your name. This is because when your
number comes up the computer shows you are their customer.
I did this and spoke to different salesmen and got different answers.
As: I was the only one to have a reservation then 2 days later there were
20. Yesterday there was 2. It does happen.

This is what I've read also. So I'm going to start talking to different local dealers to hopefully get multiple commitments to apply no ADM pricing. That way if my original dealer gets greedy and applies ADM, I'll have alternative dealers in place to whom I can switch my purchase.

Verified with Bickford Ford in Snohomish WA that they will NOT be using ADM.....this is also listed in the sticky in this thread. They also stated they will accept X-Plan pricing....joined the Mustang Club today.

I reserved at Tommie Vaughn Ford in Houston. Salesman I spoke with said they won't be marking up the Mach-E, but he knows next to nothing about it. I'm taking it with a grain of salt. He said they would be marking up the GT500 they're getting lol.

I'm not sure I understand the question? Reservations will be honored, it's just a question of timing. In terms of stocking them after the reservation period is up, that's anybody's guess but they will probably prefer ZEV credit states. But if you're looking to reserve today, I see no reason why your order would be delayed reserving through us vs. another dealership / state / etc. This isn't a new/startup manufacturer 😉 And we're still a month or two out from the start of production, if I understand the published timeline correctly.
Hmm, I don't think so. If we we were that close to production, deliveries would be sooner than Nov/Dec.

They will have to let the new paint dry. 🤣

Seriously though, I hope some dealers get some much earlier for test drives...

Anyone in Florida have confirmation of a dealer not charging ADM? I haven't had a confirmation from mine yet.

I live in NW FL. The only dealer within 100/150 mile radius that committed to no ADM was a dealership in southern AL. However this was in November right after announcement, so more dealers may have figured out pricing structure by now and there may be more options now. One thing I liked was the dealer told me they never charge an ADM on anything. The internet sales manager I have been working with has been super pleasant and has never made me feel like I was brushed off.

It may not be the best option if you are in central/south Florida, but if you are desperate and don’t mind the drive, I’ll happily provide the dealer info.

My dealer, Phil Long Ford in Colorado Springs, tole me months ago there’d be no ADM, but I’m not considering this final until an order is placed at a finalized price.

Yeah, a bit far from West Palm Beach, will give my dealer a call and see if they have any updates.

Current reservation with Stamford Ford (Connecticut). Spoke with one of the reps who called "Market Price" (guess didn't like the term ADM fee) but seems like they will clearly charge over MSRP if demand surpasses allocation, which is very likely.

The only other dealership at reasonable distance already mentioned is Biener Ford in Long Island... Talked to a rep there - excellent customer service! - confirmed MSRP and will look into what takes to change the reservation.

Does anyone else in CT (or perhaps CT/NY/NJ) has information about any other dealer? At the top of the thread RdsON asked folks to add to the list by editing but seems like there were some additions on replies, so I don't know if I missed anyone already in the area...

Many thanks!

I really believe these dealers are NOT aware that customers can change dealerships. $15K over MSRP, no X-Plan, - Goodby.
