X Plan D Plan? Difference?

Simple- D-Plan is less money, but double-check elegibility requirements. I'm fairly certain "In-laws" are not part of the D-plan deal (immediate family only).

BlueOval5.0 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
No, the X-plan is more expensive than the D-plan.

I think PB posted a number for D Plan the other day. Like A/Z plus $100 or something like that.

X Plan was A/Z Plan + 4% + $150. I'm guessing that is still correct, but I am not sure. So D Plan is substantially less, but I was under the impression that a dealership employee that qualified for D themselves, could not give out D Plans. I thought Ford was really cracking down on that.

On a $29XXX Mustang, the D plan saved $900 over the X.

Have been "legally" using my B-I-L's D plan but Ford is cracking down wanting birth certificates and marriage certificates etc...

You guys got it! Ford has really been cracking down. "Immediate family members," meaning spouse and children only. No in-laws, out-laws, s/o's, 3rd cousins, etc.

I retired from ford,and I got a post card in the mail,that the company wants us to give out X plan numbers to anyone looking for a new car,but that will bust your butt if you use an A or Z plan and you are not in your family.

On a $50K truck I save $2000 over the X Plan on my truck with the D Plan. I got the truck for well below invoice. I also got the Extended warranty at the D Plan price. Dont forget about that one.

Yep its immediate family. I had to provide my Birth Certificate, my brothers birth certificate, my fathers birth certificate and my mothers birth certificate. Lucky for me this was my 3rd vehicle thru the D Plan so I knew the dance. Have them all in a folder at home.

Polarbear can you purchase Fleet Vehicles with the D Plan????

PS I did get in contact via cell phone about the trailer. Thanks.

Double check, Ernie. My brother-in-law gave me his D plan pin# 3 weeks ago for the Mustang............and yes, they wanted birth certificates (first time though, and I've used his twice now)


Really ignorant......they give employees 2 a year, why would Ford give a rat's gluteus maximus how they're used??

Here's the whole story........I wanted to put the GT in my son's name. B-I-L checked and Ford ABSOLUTELY does not allow nephews to share the D plan. He then inquired about B-I-L's (since we have used it before) the powers that be checked and it was fine with PROOF!!!

My brother -in -law is mid management (sales manager) at the largest Ford dealership in the world.......pretty sure they have their shtuff together.

I have been wrong before, and will be again- but at least I know where to look up the answers. Usually.
