How can you tell the rear end ratio without lifting the car and if you are 500 miles away and there is no sticker available?
What is a reasonable depreciation % for a 2015?
How can you verify option 401a over the phone or online?
:cheers:

When I was searching online I usually looked for pictures that showed the driver door. If it has the memory seats then it has 401A.

As for gear ratios, I'm at a loss without the dealer printing out a window sticker for you.

What to look for the memory seats? 3 buttons near the lock buttons I guess?
It's not at a ford dealer, so no access to printing a sticker...

can a dealership look up a VIN and determine the build?

I am assuming this isn't a PP. If you cannot determine the diff, you always drop your offer another $500-750 to cover the price of a diff mod.

for 401a, that will have blind spot, with an indicator on each side view mirror. Just get a photo of a side view mirror.

how many miles does the car have ?

I thought the rear axle code is on a door sticker I thought it was a 2 letter code.

You can get the window sticker using the VIN. Just do a search for the VIN and a window sticker will be one of the things Google will find

My google must be broken, because all I got were hits to the same dealer...

He doesn't have access to ford stuff he said.
Not a PP, it is an automatic.
Car has less than 5000 miles.
I'll look for mirror pix, thx.
Is a diff mod that cheap?

Yeah, but who believes a used car salesman;)
He thinks it's a 3.55 ratio after talking to another guy, but I have no real proof yet.
