Did you guys have to put down a $1000 refundable deposit when you ordered your Bronco Sport from your dealership?

Nope, $500 (plus the original $100 for the reservation) is all that our dealership required.

My dealership didn’t ask for anything beyond the $100 reservation.

Only the $100 reservation made online.
Order confirmed.
Your dealer shouldn't be asking for more.

I’m gonna have to switch dealers then. I called them to clarify and they said they’re doing that just to make sure I get a spot for a reservation. Their excuse was, if they didn’t do the $1k refundable deposit then everyone would just be putting down orders. So dumb.

My dealer asked me for a $1000 deposit to place the order, but I talked them into accepting $500 because that is the amount that previous dealers required. ($100 plus $500)

$100.00 to reserve, $400.00 deposit to order. All refundable if we walk away without purchase. $500.00 applied toward purchase when we do the deal.

We're not requiring anymore than the $100 deposit Ford is requiring. It's really up to the dealer and most are probably following procedure they have in place for other retail orders.

One place I called told me 1k nonrefundable. I called them back later and was told 500.00. Another place told me zero, another place went to zero after I mentioned the zero bid. Depends on the dealership for sure. For most of the potential builds out there they probably aren’t taking inventory risk.

Only the $100 original reservation amount. My dealer specifically said they're a Top 100 Ford Dealer so they follow the procedures that Ford sets out.

Thanks for the replies guys. I decided to switch to a dealer that followed ford’s procedures and didn’t need any dealer deposit to order.
