  1. Build date but no email from Ford. Is this normal?

    4 days now since the dealer said I now have a build date but no email from Ford is the is normal? It may not be normal but it sure is common. My order was put in 7/1 and I received a build date of 5/17/22 from the dealer. It has been showing "in production" since then. Crickets from FORD
  2. Expectation for "off the lot" price vs. Build & Price

    Agree. My dealer wants my trade bad. He offered me $4,000 less than I paid in 2017. I placed the order for the Maverick and told him that he will get first crack at my current ride but not now. When the Mav comes in I will consider his offer and then, if I like it, roll it into a trade...
  3. Dealer says CP360 will totally stop my order

    It may be tempting to drop the CP360 but if it was me - after waiting 7 months - I would hold off a little longer if you can. At least wait until FORD says it is causing a major delay. The salesman does not have much more information than you do. Who knows, it may get delivered soon or you...
  4. $3,000 OFF - DEAL CLOSED - Fight OFF the Price Increase with Granger Ford

    I ordered when they did the 3% under invoice and I had no issues using my $1,000 rebate, got to use the 0%/36mo and the trade in offer was fair. I was in and out after exactly a hour. Was the $1000 rebate from the order end of the deal or the closing end? Is it still available?
  5. ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    Adams Ceramic Graphene coated. I will never do that again in my life. What happened? I am leaning towards the ceramic coat on my Alto Blue XLT - if it ever gets to me.
  6. How long ?

    I'm at 11 months now and holding. Currently showing "in production" on one site and "awaiting production" on another. Question though. I know that FORD is not offering the spray in bedliner any longer on the XLT. Mine has it on the order though and it also shows on the window sticker. So...
  7. My Carvana Offer

    I'm thinking the same thing. Next time learn from my mistakes and without the dealer drama. Pocket maybe $5k and order two of the '23s - if the new MSRP only takes a token increase that is. I would like an XLT AWD anyway.
  8. Dealer said to come in as there taking pre orders now.

    I haven't seen anything about Reservations for MY2023, but for MY2022 they did reservations 1st on-line. When I did my reservation on line, they did not let me pick a dealer- it was based on my ZIP code and sent automatically to that dealer and they emailed me almost immediately to confirm my...
  9. Dealer said to come in as there taking pre orders now.

    What is the harm in getting on the list? That is, if you are referencing a the list JUST TO be called when it opens up.....not a actual order yet. Looks like the dealer is smart to start building a book for when the orders actually do open up. Just don't give them any money just to be on a...
  10. 1000 Mile Maverick Hybrid XLT Review (and I mostly hate it)

    Well, that certainly takes a little wind of the sails. I do find you honest and believable. Some of the negatives will not be noticed by all but others you aptly pointed out and should be addressed. To keep it in perspective here - it is your opinion of your ownership experience. There is...
  11. What is going on at the factory for the last two weeks?

    Ordered XLT hybrid on 7/1. Production scheduled for this week 5/17. Just changed from 'in production' to 'scheduled for production'. No new date....nothing. Patience is wearing thin here. At some point any order past 9 months should become a priority build. They have chips or they would...
  12. Ford enforcing stricter Order Name Matching Policy on dealers [Bulletin Added]

    I like that - lose the order takers. That would be a win for the consumer and for FORD. Finally, everyone would pay the same price for identical products. What a concept! Ever take your dog to the vet and he/she starts shaking when you pull into the parking lot? That's me when I pull into...
  13. Not seeing Mavericks in the wild... why not? How about your community?

    I've seen two in Austin I pulled up beside one at a red light. We rolled down windows and had a nice 2 minute chat about them. Dude was thrilled with his. My XLT hybrid was ordered last 7/1 and is supposed to be in the oven now.
  14. Alto blue hybrid xlt

    I'm liking those black wheels much better. The FX4 was not an option on the XLT hybrid when I ordered though. I have Alto blue in the oven now. It has been 11 months and hope to have it by the one year anniversary of the order. 7/1/21. If it did not take so long for a '23 to be made I would...
  15. How can I get best offers/pricing for new XLT Maverick please,

    If I had mine to do over, I would work it up online again but take the spec sheet to three dealers before picking the dealer to deliver to. I would get my best price in writing - or no deal. No BS like I had to through with "well it depends on that the incentives are when it arrives...yada...
  16. XL Ford Maverick (no add-ons)

    Same here though I may have a bed liner. It's been 11 months and I had given up on even getting this truck 2 months ago so I had to look to see what I even ordered last June. I just hope that I do NOT have a sliding rear window. Had one before and seldom used it. Over time it became a...
  17. ALTO BLUE Maverick Club

    Thanks for the pics and affirming your approval. I ordered mine in Alto and have been second guessing my choice. It is quiet darker in person than the color on the Ford website. Ordered mine in June '21 - start build next week and possible delivery in June. 12 month wait
  18. Which Harbor Freight Trailer for the Hybrid

    I would avoid the 12' tires myself. That is a lot of RPM's and builds up a lot of heat - then you add in the weight. Maybe okay around town but I could never put a 12" tire on the highway for long due to the marginal highway rating on the tread. Not that you asked, but Tractor Supply has an...
  19. ? For anyone with an honest answer?

    I have to agree with you. When I placed my order (in June) it was because the Ford site alone sold me with presentation, slick marketing and especially price. There were no further "action items" addressed - such as contact a dealer first or (especially) allocations. I failed to realize that...
  20. More than 1/3 of Maverick buyers under 44 years of age. And 60% come from other brands

    LOL Watch it buddy! That would be me. Except moonlight starts around 7:30 pm these days and I still need the 4WD Duramax that is on order also. I bought my first car in 1974 and being a multi-car family for all these years, I have probably owned well over 30 different vehicles. Believe it...
