i put my order in 1/13/10
I called today to see if they had vin number, only 7 digits, no full vin.
Then i see a guy who got his vin number and put in his order after mine, but he has a srw, where i orderd a drw.
So i call back again, he assures me this is how they all go and i'm fine.
Then i'm sitting watching the news, Phillips ford, Big Rapids,Mich out of business! WHAT!!!!!!!! I about fell off the couch!
I call and ask what the hell is going on! I bought local Just in case i have to go back and fourth for ECM or anything else.
Gave me bunch of B.S. more or less...said they are moving over to the used car building. I asked if they are going to still be a ford dealer, he said yes. i said, so your going to be ordering more ford vehicles or is this why your lot is empty?? EH! Oh yeah, we will be ordering more..ya da ya da ya da
I said ok, what about the mechanics. He said they laid them all off for 4-6 weeks, till they get things figured out. Then they are suppose to move back into the big building and hire them back.
He said, the owner is leasing the building from Ford and lease is up and something is going on between Ford and the owner!
Does it sound like he is lieing and beating around the bush and just wants my money(commision,etc)?
I call Ford, they said they are still in system for Ford dealer (at the moment) How long does it take to close out a ford dealer in the system?
i call The next closest Ford dealer, he heard they are done and the are my local dealer now! And they are only suppose to be selling used cars now??
What happens with my truck on order? Is it still on order or is this why i'm not getting my full vin? Can i switch it to the other dealer while keeping my status, So they get the commission..because they are the ones going to be servicing it. I feel this is only right.
What do i do? Just go ask for my 200.00 down back, because sat. is 30 days.
Or do you think i'm in the clear and be taken care of still? Which i don't know how i'm going to be taken care if they are not going to be a ford dealer anymore
This sucks sooo bac!
