A good forecaster will use unconstrained demand, not sales to forecast optimized allocations. The trick is to avoid garbage data like cancelled orders or anything else that can inflate demand per dealer in a way that won’t translate to sales.
No idea what Ford does, just projecting my experience.
I think it will move the week prior. My blend date is now in my sticker and is for the original week scheduled. My email said the week of the 16th, I noticed I moved from “order confirmed” to “in production” on the 12th, and my blend date is the 19th.
This came out to around $14k and my value was similar to yours pre-accident. Granted, I sold it as soon as it was repaired becauseI was no longer confident in the rear end.
I think you’ll be good. Make sure you do a Diminished Value claim in addition to the repairs.
Ask. If you don’t the answer is there will be no help.
I think if you’re polite about it they’re more likely to help, or at least give you some DIY recommendations or a referral to a body shop that does a lot of work for them. Might be 5 minutes and a ratchet for someone who does it a lot...
I cannot speak authoritatively on that. The answer may be in between. Like I’m a priority 2 anticipating scheduling Thursday and a change may have bumped me back out to a 10 to be considered next week.
I contacted the dealer to see about deleting the hood stripe I didn’t want. I didn’t catch it on the order in November. They said they couldn’t get the system to offer the stripe delete, and then added I was now a priority 2 so I’d probably get bumped to the back of the line.
I’ll see if it...
I have a Ryobi brushless 3/8” that works great. It’s super small and light weight, and not so strong it’ll break something on accident. Still 160 ft/lbs. Then an Earthquake XT Harbor Freight 1/2” for Jeep suspension bits.
