    Carpet Protection Is a Must for me

    Yeah, when the parts dept. said I had to work with the service dept. for a set of floor mats just to pull the rewards points I was like "Wait, you want me to do what now?". Not intuitive whatsoever.

    Carpet Protection Is a Must for me

    I had to call the parts/accessories dept. at my dealer to order them, then make a separate call to the service dept. for them to generate a repair order to pull the points from my account (parts dept. told me to do this). There is nowhere that you can redeem them online that I was able to find.

    Carpet Protection Is a Must for me

    Correct. My FE came with a rubberized floor, but carpeted mats, which was a bit odd. I swapped them out for rubber mats as well. Really pleased with this all rubber setup now that it's winter. I realize others may prefer the aesthetic of having carpet, but I'm looking forward to the...

    Dealer mistakenly sells man a Bronco Sport display model then demands its return

    No. The dealer fucked up. Plain and simple. It just happened to make it into "the news" this time.

    Ford Bronco engine review

    Yeah, that was the article I linked....in my 3rd edit

    Ford Bronco engine review

    Maybe with the 1.5L --- I haven't driven one so I can't really say, but the 2.0L is not slow at all, especially in sport mode. If you need even more acceleration than the 2.0L offers in a compact SUV, you are probably cross-shopping for something in a completely different price bracket at that...

    Dealer mistakenly sells man a Bronco Sport display model then demands its return

    From what I've read, the punishment the dealers get from Ford when they do this (i.e. not allowed to order more cars to sell) is severe enough that the dealers don't care about the blowback from demanding the vehicle be returned. I don't profess to know the exact consequences but it's a major...

    Dealer mistakenly sells man a Bronco Sport display model then demands its return

    Yeah, they're very likely in deep 💩 over this with Ford.

    Carpet Protection Is a Must for me

    I got my points within 24 hours or so. That said, I'd had the Ford pass app already for a few months for another vehicle, so I think that might have had something to do with why they showed up so fast.

    So any tracking info?

    @Bdub didn't this happen to you too?

    Insurance premium quotes?

    Insurance rates are different in every state in the country so price shopping nationally doesn't work. Only rates in your state would be relevant to you. Your new car likely has more safety features but maybe it's higher replacement value is offsetting that? IDK what your other vehicle's value...

    Roof basket vs. Roof box

    There is a dump "in town" that I have to take all the garbage to when we leave the cabin, which usually means I have to do that before I can pack the car to avoid spills, stains, etc. This could potentially solve that issue as well. Any specific carrier, totes or cordage you recommend for...

    Roof basket vs. Roof box

    This is another option I'm looking at. Thoughts on the carrier w/totes on the hitch vs. a hitch mounted box?

    Roof basket vs. Roof box

    I'm considering a roof box since I would likely only be using it on longer trips and would want the contents protected from the elements during the drive. Given the weight restrictions on the roof, I don't think I'd want to put anything too bulky or heavy on the roof anyway. A basket is...

    I reserved a full size Bronco but I want to jump ship for a Bronco Sport Badlands. Where can I buy now?

    Yeah, I had to call the parts department to order them, but I had to make a separate call to the service department to get them to set up the repair order to pull the points from my account. The service dept. seemed confused initially when I called. More or less I ended up telling them "Go...

    Price negotiating with dealer??

    That I'm not sure of. For the one that I had to call them about, I had already owned the car for 60 days. But then the Bronco Sport points showed up within 24 hours. Maybe because I'd already had the app for 2 months? I honestly don't know. I wish I had better info for you.

    $100 Deposit

    I just called my dealership and they said they would have one of the guys in the finance dept. take care of it. I had the transaction date and reference number from my credit card statement to provide them, which they seemed to appreciate.

    Price negotiating with dealer??

    Correct. I don't know why they have that language about 6 months in their description. I haven't had to wait for either of the 2 cars I bought in the last few months.
