Agree with this. Does it suck? Yep. Will it significantly impact your resale? Nope. But if some of these fools wanna trade in their badass trucks for an adult power wheels have at it…
Gas will eventually return to a somewhat lower price. World politics and our current administration have us all by the short hairs for the short term.
Absolutely. Gas will come down just depends how long. As much as the current administration wants people to suffer with high gas prices to push their agenda, it’s only a matter of time. High gas prices leads to election losses or a recession. Either way should decrease prices.
Man i feel your pain. Same boat. This is my build week 3/7. Window sticker generated last week and showed the $3300 pricing increase. I went to my dealer thinking they would have my back since ive bought 3 raptors and 1 f350 super duty in the last 4 years. Boy was i wrong. In a huge way. They basciclly gave me the middle finger. Rude, cocky, i wanted to punch the guy do to his lack of concern unwilling to even hear me out. I guess it makes it worse with all these examples on here of people going to there dealer and hearing "all good man we'll take care of you". So it can be done, my ******* dealership is choosing to look the otherway. I really cant wait untill Ford has a direct to consumer line. I had a great relationship with these guys and it looks like greed got the best of them. F'em.So through another member on this forum I was able to secure 22 Raptor at 10k over. I understand everyone doesn’t agree with the whole paying over MSRP but unfortunately don’t have the luxury of waiting and the market seems to bear that.
Anyhow back to the story. Call the salesman I was referred to. He tells me truck is scheduled to be built within a 2-3 weeks and price is 78,450 + 10k which is the Pre 2/15 price. I agree, He sends me a build sheet that shows this price, at the bottom he adds 10K ADM tells me to sign send back and charges me 5K deposit. So because I have vin I have been checking tracker to see when truck would go into production. Well yesterday to my surprise truck shows in production with a window sticker. I click on sticker and see truck has the new pricing on sticker which makes sense because it is coming off the line after the increase date. Although I am pretty sure the dealer didn’t incur the increase as it was ordered Oct 21. So today I get a call from my salesman and he says good news and bad news. Good news is your truck is in production, bad news is price went up 3,300 and I need to pass that price on to you. So I very calmly and nicely tell him my understanding was that increase was for units ordered after 2/15, and that because they had ordered in Oct this unit should have still had old pricing. Even though the sticker was increased. He basically proceeds to say it’s not in dealer issue Ford increased the pricing and there is nothing he can do about it. If I don’t like it he will refund my money and basically pound sand.
To say I am fuming is a understatement. Dealer knew on 2/21 when we agreed on the deal that the trucks had gotten a increase. But this until clearly wasn’t affected because I have the build sheet with the old pricing. Now that the window sticker is available they are using it to squeeze another 3300 out of me when it didn’t cost them anymore money. Although I’m sure it will be a worthless conversation I place call to GM to voice my frustration. Hard to have any leverage with them when they know they will get 10k over sticker when it lands.
Second deal I have had that has went sideways. I am about over trying to get a GEN 3.
IERAPTOR Post the name of the dealer and address. This will bring the dealer all the attention they deserve and also from Ford corporate.
I am shocked at the prices of the new trucks. I will never be able to buy a new one. The PO of my used Raptor put 65k on it and never serviced the shocks. Since one of you may have purchased my next truck I hope you take better care of it.
