"No Sale"

- Brian

Long review but worth the read. Ames Ford is NOT an honorable dealership. I have been working for months talking to Faisal indicating I want to be first in line to buy the new GT500 when it comes out. We had worked out a deal and shook hands at MSRP. Faisal calls me 1 hour before me driving to the dealership and signing the contract to tell me Nick (Sales Manager) can no longer sell it at MSRP because he is getting a bidding war from other dealers out of State. He said if I still want it, he will now sell it to me at $18k over MSRP. I asked him about our deal at MSRP and he said they can no longer honor it. Faisal has told me numerous times that Ames Ford does not play the over MSRP markup game because they would rather sell the car and get it on the road to someone local. Turns out they are greedy and do play that game. Ford does not allow any dealer to sell over MSRP as an “After Dealer Markup”, but they can get away with it by calling it a “Market Adjustment”. It’s the same thing, it is a loop hole in the system. Ford has been notified of their non-honorable actions towards Ford themselves and me. Can’t trust Ames Ford by their word or a handshake. I have left an online review for them before, but Nick threatened my car club which has nothing to do with them by pulling their sponsorship with them if I didn’t remove my comments. As of now our car club has severed ties with them. We do not want to associate with an organization that has no honor and makes threat to our car club over an individual matter. Ames Ford has no honor and breaks deals. You shouldn’t trust them either. My honest review is now being put back up.
