Hi,
When I reserved my lightning, I chose the dealer nearest to my location. But now after reading the forums, I came to know that some dealers add dealer ADM to MSRP. Is there a way to change the dealership now? If yes, could you pls share the process?

TIA,
PP

Yes you can. On the Ford website there is a 800 number to call. I did it with my Bronco res before I canceled it.

More than likely you’ll have to cancel the reservation and then take your business elsewhere.
Wow thats super bad. If I cancel and reserve again, i would loose my spot! I wish there was a way to change.

You can, and I did it. The change in dealer will also result in a refund of your reservation fee - which is not supposed to affect your place in line.
Same here I called the number and changed my dealer after I found out about their ADM charges. I kept same reservation number and money was applied to new dealer.

Before changing, I checked with my current dealer and they replied saying "We are selling for MSRP no mark up."
Can I trust this? Or is there another better way to to confirm? Otger than markup qre there any other fees that I need to check with them?

Not really until you configure the build and get a purchase agreement to sign.
We took delivery of a 2021 Nissan Sentra for my 18 year old daughter after her previous car was totaled. I cosigned a loan for her so she could start to establish her credit. I went through the normal process of negotiating price with several dealers. Once we settled on the dealer and received the final paperwork I could not believe how many extra fees were added. I managed to get all of those removed accept one and that was for the dealer applied window tint. They took that down from $500 to $100. So you just never know until you get the buyers final paperwork.
