Last night I built a new GT Premium on Ford's site, then decided to subject myself to the inevitable dealership harassment by requesting a quote. I put a note on the quote asking for a purchase quote for 60 or 72 months, meaning what I really wanted was a price and interest rates for those two terms. I built: GT Premium 401A Sterling Gray with black/cashmere Auto Brembos Comfort Package Shaker Pro Comes out to $41,025 (ouch...). I got a reply with the "closest optioned car" available, which was basically similar and price and nothing more. For pricing uses, that's fine. He gave me a dealership discount price of $38,612, but then proceeded to give me lease quotes. So I just said fine whatever, they missed that I wanted purchase quotes/interest rates, but that's fine. So I emailed back asking one simple question, "Thanks for the quote, what is the last day that a 2014 can be factory ordered?" The reply I got: "No, balance wont' be due until December / january time frame,... We can place an order any time" wat da fuq? He answered a question nobody asked and completely failed to answer the question I did ask, I couldn't have made it more clear. So given that I was given lease quotes instead of purchase quotes and can't get a simple question answered, this dealer is clearly out of the running for a sale and I'm not going to bother trying to ask the question again, so I'll just ask here -- what is the last day I can walk into a dealership and do a factory order on a new 2014?
