Actually, I could understand a generic decline like "I'm afraid that this dealership doesn't perform at the volume level sufficient to support a XPlan purchase at this time." That would've been annoying, but within their right to do so...It doesn't seem right that other members can get it and you can't.
What I don't appreciate is the obfuscation, deflection, and outright making-things-up...
It went from "never heard of such a thing" to "oh that thing, we'd be glad to do that for you except you're not an employee" in the space of minutes.
I'm not even sure he realized what he was implying with the "anyone could get a hold of a PIN" right after I handed him the document with my PIN on it.
Probably could except that they already have a deposit from me... ugh.Can or did you try another dealer?
Correct. I was just pointing out that the X-Plan rules are written primarily with employee purchases in mind, and only devotes a paragraph or two to "membership" purchases which refers to three organizations and nothing else. I can honestly see (based solely on this document) why someone would think any other organization wouldn't be legitimate.... and special organizations having a unique relationship with the Ford Motor Company.
...MCA certainly qualifies as a special organization,
Ford could probably help matters by adding something like, "For other organizations contact your sponsor for details". That would show that it's more than those three groups listed without Ford having to provide a long list of groups with redundant directions and detailed minutiae about each group.
