Now what! My ford dealer went out of business today!!

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

HELPPPPPP

This sucks sooo bac!

i've done that

i've talked to randy before,but i just don't feel its fair to order from him, then i have to pay to get it shipped or go get it, and all service done locally. I always get bad vibes from that. lol

I'm so ticked off, because they didn't say anything up front.

Do you really think they would have said anything? When push comes to shove your basically a number to them. If the owner is looking for a new building he has bigger fish to fry that your new Super Duty. right or wrong?
What kind of deal did they give you? Invoice?
He would have to give me one heck of a deal to do future business with them..
I wish you all the best but I guess it could be worse

The Sting of poor quailty far outlast the joy of a Cheap price...Quality counts!

well, I doubt Randy will come down to FL and change my everytime i need an oil change but he's a stand up guy and my order was the easiest one i've ever had. His knowledge and customer service is top notch and i'd double check on the extra shipping cost when ordering from him, don't think that's the case.
