Jumping into the Super Duty world and looking for a dealer to order a 2022 from. The dealer I was working with could care to less to order one. He just keeps talking about delays and how Ford may not even accept an order for one. Any recommendations for a good dealer in the area or PNW to work with? Thanks!

Check out this post from one of my threads:
I see you live in Washington. I live in Kirkland (we seem to be holding the Oly and Seattle scum off for now...). Anyway, go see Brian C. at Korum or Steve C. at Ford of Kirkland. They are both solid and they will take care of you. Both gave me great service, and I ended up buying from Steve mainly for convenience and because I got a few bucks better than X plan.

Bickford's lot is littered with Tremors. I has a nice conversation with the sales guy there and he said they'd do an X plan order only if I ordered a truck. Fair enough. But the reception with Brian and Steve was cooler (in a good way)...
I ended up reaching out to Steve C at Ford of Kirkland based on this recommendation (was looking for a dealer to honor X-Plan) and he's fantastic. I will say, though, based on my experience all the dealers are ridiculously busy, so expect to have to follow-up and work your order through. You won't have salespeople aggressively following up with you.

Picked up mine at Anacortes Frontier Ford. The purchase went smoothly and relatively quickly (I thought). Things went sideways once I realized they never gave me a spare FOB. I left multiple unanswered call back requests with my salesperson. I finally contacted customer service through a chat ap and email.

A sales manager finally called me and stated that there was no way I didn't receive a second FOB. I explained to her that as soon as I got the vehicle home, I created both a file for any paperwork and a bin for any extra parts that came with the truck, such as the extra back up camera for trailers and the harness. Without explicitly saying so, she implied that I was lying and that the cost of a spare key would be $400.00.

Pretty poor customer service. We live in Kirkland and I would have purchased from a closer dealership but it was the only Tremor even remotely close and it was optioned with the goodies I wanted.

Great deal and service from Chris Kelly at Bowen Scarff. They honored x-plan + PCO and even added another rebate I didn't know about....

I went with Fugate in Enumclaw. Very responsive and no nonsense, along with lower sales tax: https://www.fugateford.net/
Kirkland Ford was non-responsive when I was ordering, but they later said that was due to having to enter 700 Bronco orders that week. Higher sales tax, but they offered invoice pricing straight up.

Awesome to hear you had a good experience with Steve!
