Default PCO expiring before new retail delivery

Hi everyone

I was fortunate enough to get a PCO through one of the forum members on here. I got the PCO on August 15th and my trucks ETA is for October 4th. The PCO expires on the 31st of september, so I'm kinda clueless on what options I have.

The GM of the dealer said he has not seem them before, and claimed I could only do it with a STOCK vehicle, not an order.

If someone could clarify this entire thing it would be super appreciated!

The GM is wrong, PCO's work on ordered trucks. They need to call the PCO in and get it protected so it works after the expiration date. As long as a VIN was issued before the PCO expires, the dealer can get it protected so it applies after the exp. date.

GM is wrong, I used my PCO on an Ordered Truck. Locked it in before the truck hit the dealer, after I had the VIN.

You can verify your PCO and everything we are telling you by calling:

PCO and Current Incentive Information:
800-334-4375 option 1 then 3

One more vote for the GM being wrong. Got my PCO 3 weeks after I placed the order. Contacted the dealer at that time and he confirmed it would be applied even if the truck arrived after the PCO's expiration date. Call Ford Marketing if he continues to BS you.

Private Cash Offer. These come directly from Ford for up to an extra $3,000 offer. The current expiration date on these is 10/31/18.

I ordered my truck on July 7th. Incentives expired on July 9th. I took delivery of it on August 31'st with all incentives subtracted from the price. As long as the dealer locks in the incentives and PCO's, there is no issue.

Ok so thatís not an issue. But I gave the salesman the PCO in paper on the 14th of August. I donít believe the dealer added it to the VIN like I mentioned, so Iím not sure if they will be able to get it added- since it was in their possession and they where instructed to add it. Grrrr
