The dealer has absolutely no incentive to be honest and loose 3K. I just figured that Ford would be the most effective avenue.
It all depends on the dealership.
The GM of the dealership I'm purchasing from just called me yesterday. They initially offered to split the difference with me on the $3300, which I agreed to with my sales guy. However, the GM later changed his mind after remembering me as a prior customer and said he will honor the original sticker/MSRP prior to the price increase.
Effectively, he's saying he's going to fight the fight with Ford to get this taken care of, and absorb that cost if it comes to that. I also told him of my experience with Ford customer service.
