    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    I have some summer camping trips planned too that I felt like were going to be ruined by not getting my truck. In the end I decided I wasn’t going to let Ford ruin it for me. I was able to rent a 3/4 ton pickup from Enterprise for $450/week (plus taxes). Yeah it sucks, but renting it for 2-weeks a month in June and July to get me through the summer is still less than the truck payments will be haha. I’m hoping to have my truck by the July vacations since I’m finally in production but who knows.

    “Built” but on chip hold

    What are the details of your truck? Does it have multi-contour seats?

    You’re already scheduled so it doesn’t affect you. It means nobody that is unscheduled will be getting a scheduled build week & VIN next Thursday.

    My truck is already in production with a scheduled to day of May 26th, so no I can't. I will wait it out like everyone else and see what happens.

    I can agree with this statement. But we know it will never happen.
  7. Ford said they would automatically add the 91X option on May 26th even if a dealer took no action. Wouldn't it have been better to just let it happen on its own? Regarding the price protection, my understanding is when Ford confirms the vehicle is sold to the same person who placed the original order, they will refund the dealer in 30-45 days. This is the first I've heard 90 days. My dealer unfortunately is taking a similar approach. They said once they get the refund from Ford they will forward it to me. Pretty crappy, but what can I do? My brother just picked up his F250 (my 450 is still being built). When he inquired about them floating that price protection so that he wouldn't have to pay tax & license on the higher amount their response was that they wouldn't float it because they've gotten burned from Ford in the past because of things like spelling errors on names, etc. I think this is BS because even if Ford denied a price protection claim over something like a mis-spelled name, I can't imagine it would be very difficult to get remedied by the area rep. They also threw in the fact that they were the only dealer in the area selling for $450 over invoice. I guess you have to pick your battles. I would say at a minimum to get something in writing from them that they will reimburse you the price protection amount.

    I'm seeing so many people make posts like this sympathizing with Ford. To be clear, I'm not blaming Ford for not being able to get the modules. I'm also not blaming them for wanting to get customers their trucks. What I am blaming them for is how they chose to handle it. Many people step up to Platinums over a Lariat Ultimate specifically for the active motion seats. Best I can tell, these two modules (one for each seat) are around $550 each when you buy them from a discount online ford parts dealer. The local dealer would be even more. The seats have to be removed in order to access the part of the seat where these are installed. So $1100 in parts plus 1 - 2 hours of labor is what it would cost to have these two missing parts installed. But instead we get a measly $300 discount on our order. This will hurt the resale value of the truck a lot more than $300. If I had known this would be missing from my build I would have saved several thousand dollars and ordered a Lariat Ultimate (and gotten the truck a lot quicker too). Ford could have given people any two of the following three options: 1. you can have a $XXX discount 2. when parts are available we will notify you so you can take your truck to your local dealer and have them installed 3. your truck ill stay on a microchip hold until the modules are available I don't think anyone could have faulted them if we had the option to get the part installed later (or wait). But instead they forced option 1 down everyones throat.
  9. Now I know why my build date finally settled on 5/26. Sucks a fat one.

    Definitely sucks a fat one. That is one of the big reasons why people spend thousands to upgrade to a Platinum. After waiting this long you are basically told “sorry - here’s $300 - now go pound sand!”

    What does this mean for those of us with trucks currently in production? The current window sticker doesn’t say anything about the removal.
  12. I don’t know if there is any correlation, but my F450 Platinum’s order status changed to “In Production” this afternoon. This after 10 pushbacks. Was originally scheduled for March 7th. Last pushback was to week of May 23rd, and it looks like my build to day finally settled on May 26th.
  13. Just following up on my previous post. I asked if they were going to be able to be able to ship then without the module and have the dealer install it later. Here’s the response which looks very promising. If it means I can finally get my truck I’ll take this option in a heartbeat.
  14. One of the employees from the Kentucky plant that normally posts on the Facebook page says they are working on a fix to get the trucks out without the multi contour module. It might end up being similar to the PM sensor that is not being installed on the 6.7 PSD until a later date by the dealer. At this point I’ll take mine without the module temporarily over an indefinite wait.

    How did you get the PCO? Online or in the mail?
