so if this car was titled which was I thought when the warranty starts. You won't be eligible for the $7500 tax credit. ALthough ford has arrangements for a rebate for titled demos you may want to check.I recently made a deal for a "mannequin" Mach E. Before I drove to see it, they did mention $5k markup, but negotiable. It was about a 2 hour drive for me to get to the dealer. We settled on $3800 over MSRP, but they included a Ford Connected Charging Station in the deal. I had to wait for them to get approval from Ford, as it only has 1600 miles. In the meantime, I found out that although they assured me it would come with a full warranty, it does not. The warranty started in March, so I'd be losing 8 months. They were going to get something in writing from Ford corporate stating a full warranty. However, I was on my way to pick it up Monday, they called and said they can't deliver until the saftey recalls are fixed. They also mentioned the warranty had been extended to 4yr/42k mile Ford PremiumCare. In other words, without admitting they were wrong about the warranty, they were trying to make it right to what they promised.
So, I don't feel too bad about the markup at this point.
