    Is there anything else you want to share with us about this dealership?I had an f150 2018XLT 30A addition on lease. My Ford dealer indicated, in Feb 21, that they would like to "roll" me into a new lease and make the last couple of payments for me. While that sounded nice, it was before the obvious supply shortages (on my side). In fact that had many Rangers in stock. I preferred something smaller. However, their new deal was horrible and not even close to what my current lease offered. Before I drove up there I expressed I wanted to know right off all the details: sales price, money factor etc etc. Instead what I got was a waste of time and insult to my intelligence. As the next couple of months came by it was clear the industry was entering in uncharted territory. So I bought out my truck for 25K (but at another Ford dealer out of spite). I hung onto while researching possibly trading. I saw a lot of good reviews for the Ridgeline and it so happened that a local dealer was unloading one when I called and inquired. I drove it, liked it and was leaving when they wanted to know if there was anything they could do get my business. I said Match what Car Max is willing to give, give me MSRP, and throw in the weather tech mats and its a deal. A bit of negotiation but in the end I got that deal. 30,500K for my trade and MSPR (38k) for the Truck. No money down. I had told them that I was on my way to CarMax for an in person appt., which was true. Anyway I was there about 2.5 hours in total before I drove off in the New Truck. They kept the 150 and put on their lot for 33K.
