Each dealer is responsible for complying with applicable laws or regulations. Unless otherwise provided by state or local laws or regulations: In states where dealers are not permitted to charge as much as $75 for A/Z-Plan doc fees or $100 for X-Plan and D-Plan doc fees, dealers would be capped at the lesser amount as provided by the state. In states that permitted more than $75 or $100, dealers would be permitted to charge the AZ-Plan customer $75 and the X-Plan or D-Plan customer $100. In states that permitted more than $75 or $100 and also required that all customers be charged the same amount, dealers may charge the A/Z-Plan customer $75 and the X-Plan or D-Plan customer $100 and indicate any additional fees have been paid by Ford Motor Company as part of the AXZD-Plan Program dealer reimbursement on the buyer's order.

    I disagree with your Dealer. The only issue with price protection is if you change the model (Body Code) or trim (XL, XLT, Lariat, etc.) which then creates a new order with a new original order date.

    you guys are a huge benefit to this community!   Thank you @akirby and @ice-capades
    I love sticking it to the man (dealer) so to speak!   The day will come when dealers are no longer required except for maintenance ect.  If the dealers keep trying to blatantly rip consumers off.   The dealer is either incompetent in dealing with xplan and price protection or just blatantly trying to rip people off.

    Hopefully closed, they should have closed it in 2006 when they had the chance. That plant has always been problems, people at Ford knew you wanted a Taurus from Atlanta rather than Chicago  EV Aviator and Explorer will probably be close 300K units between the two of them plus with the Canadian and Provincial government stepping up should help a lot for the future of Oakville in the next 20+ years.

    Thanks for sharing this ice-capades. The big challenge for GM, and all other automakers, is ramping production up to meet the massive customer demand for their BEV.

    Ford Explorer & Lincoln Aviator EV's Will Be Oakville's Only Vehicles
    https://fordauthority.com/2022/11/ford-explorer-lincoln-aviator-evs-will-be-oakvilles-only-vehicles/
     

     
    Currently, the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada produces the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus for North America, but that facility will stop building both the mainstream crossover and its luxury counterpart after the 2023 model year. As Ford Authority reported in 2020, the Oakville plant was slated to replace those models with five new EVs in 2025 following a complete retooling in 2024 – including all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator crossovers. In fact, an “Explorer-like” EV is slated to become the automaker’s next all-electric model, while Lincoln plans on rolling out four new second-generation EVs by 2026. However, it seems as if The Blue Ovals’ plans have changed somewhat in the past two years, and now the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator EVs will be the only two models built at Oakville, according to Automotive News Canada.

    Deliveries of the all-electric midsize model revealed in July are not expected to begin until next summer, but the first batch is already spoken for.
     
    A Chevrolet spokeswoman told FOX Business that the automaker has "fulfilled our reservation target" and is no longer accepting new reservations.
     
    The first Blazer EVs scheduled to ship are listed at $47,595 and $51,995. An entry-level $44,995 model will be added in late 2024.

    5 vehicles seemed too good to be true in the first place. They probably pulled some of what they planned out of Oakville and put it toward BOC. Who knows anyways and it will be interesting to see if they even meet those production targets of 230000. Will the demand even be there??? What happens to Chicago Assembly going forward??? Volume will reduce at Chicago. It will be interesting to see what plants are left standing after all of this ICE to BEV transition is sorted out. This once again reinforces what I say all the time about Ford changing plans.  They can’t even provide a date when the demolition and retooling of OAC begins. I heard October 2023 the Nautilus ends at OAC. The March 29, 2024 Edge ends. That was from a forecasting site not FOMOCO.
