Follow the correct steps when ordering or you may still not get the Transit you want!
Use the 2017 Ford Transit Order Guide USING THE CODES & DESCRIPTIONS to make up your order form......This is what the dealer inputs to create the order
Look at their final copy and GET A COPY OF THEIR INPUT TO FORD........WITH DEALER CODE & ORDER NUMBER....this shows what the dealer ordered, NOT what they tell you
You should get a VIN & PROJECTED BUILD DATE within the first 2 weeks OR dealer will get a message from Ford on problems with the order
Yep Yep and Yep. I used the dealer's options sheet, made my hand printed order from that, complete with codes. Salesman took that and provided a VOC and I double checked it against my hand printed sheet. Then took the VOC to the office, stood and checked items off as salesman and "orderer" verified ordered on computer screen, on a few things I had caught wrong, they fixed. Printed off computer screen order which I signed (BUT DID NOT RECEIVE A COPY! I realize now.) They said they were having problems because Ford dropped the code numbers from the onscreen ordering. ????? So we had to read off the actual descriptions.
Later received the Window Tag, verified it, received VIN and Van order number.
What came in under those numbers is NOT what was on the VOC / handprinted orders. I mean, I had a 3.31 limted slip axle on the Window tag and the van has a 4.10.... little things like that
The van had the same VIN and order numbers. Did not have the same ordered items.
Not sure what went on, Doesn't matter. What matters is God prevented me from taking possession (did not even test drive it.)
I am reordering my Mulligan (with better options chosen now I think) through another dealer (thanks to JHTransit). ahahah maybe that's the name of my new van 2!
