Greetings!
Got a call that my local dealership had a loaner in my color/badlands and asked if I wanted to come down and look at it before they posted it. They said it had about 2k miles on it.

Get down there and the bumper is off because they are replacing it after a loanee damaged it. They told us it was a “small dent”, but after looking at it the bumper the damage was much worse.

The sales manager kept telling me about the other bronco sports flying off the lot—but they didn’t have multiple driver miles and an accident under its belt.

They kept reiterating that it was falling under “warranty work”—but that seems shady to me, hiding an accident?


It seems unreasonable to sell it at sticker price to me? Or am I being the unreasonable one?

I wouldn’t pay msrp on it. It is shady to not disclose it. I’ve heard of cars being damaged in transport and dealers fixing it. Squeeze them see if they will budge on price. 3k to 5k off price or get them to do the max extend warranty!

I’d go one step further and say I think it’s illegal for them to do the repair and not put it on the vehicles history. It’s one thing if they weren’t aware of the damage but they are.

I walked away and reached out to a dealership a few towns over. Was not comfortable purchasing from the dealership in light of the weirdness and how the sales manager talked to us. Thanks, everyone :)
