RE: 2010 AAA/Ford Vehicle Purchase Program
Greater savings are now available to AAA clubs and service providers through the 2010
model year AAA/Ford Program. Ford Motor Company recently approved an increase in
incentive amounts on many new 2010 vehicle models available through the AAA/Ford program.
AAA clubs and service providers can receive substantial savings on a wide selection of quality
Ford vehicles suitable for light service, mobile battery service and other roadside solutions that
support the 2010 pacesetter strategy. The AAA/Ford Vehicle Purchase Program offers AAA
clubs and service providers the opportunity to purchase quality vehicles with specific models
eligible for savings ranging from $400 to $8,000 “off dealer invoice price” at the time of
purchase through participating Ford Dealerships.
2010 Program Enhancements and Changes include:
Off- invoice incentive amounts on a variety of vehicles have been increased from $50 to as
much as $3,000 allowing clubs and service providers a lower acquisition cost on vehicle
New! Ford introduces the new Transit Connect to the AAA program vehicle lineup for the
2010 model year.
To ensure eligibility for the AAA/Ford Vehicle Purchase Program incentives, it is important for
clubs and service providers to comply with the following program requirements:
2010 model year vehicles must be purchased or leased ne w at participating Ford
and Lincoln Mercury Dealers. Vehicles purchased at tow truck distributors
(i.e. Miller Ind., etc.) are NOT ELIGIBLE for this AAA/Ford incentive. See the
Ford/Miller Program for savings details.
AAA Fleet Identification Numbe r (FIN) “LF015” and Option Code “56A” has been
designated for club purchases, AAA Fleet Identification Number (FIN) “XE071”
and Option Code “56A” has been designated for service provider purchases. See
Attachme nt A for incentive details. Clubs and service providers MUST present the
appropriate AAA Fleet Identification Numbe r to the Ford or Lincoln Mercury
Dealer at time of purchase. Failure to provide this info rmation at the time of
purchase will result in forfeiture of the incentives. Buyers are encouraged to
identify themselves as fleet purchasers to ensure contact with the prope r sales

Purchasers can receive an additional cas h-back rebate by fully completing and submitting a
rebate form to Chantay Tarver, AAA Automotive Account Executive, as indicated on the rebate
form. Service providers must continue to submit their rebate forms through their local AAA club
first, who after verifying AAA affiliation and completing the “club section” of the forms,
forwards the forms and sales receipts to AAA Automotive for processing. All rebate requests
MUST be received within 90 days from purchase delivery date to qualify for the rebate.
Failure to submit rebate requests prior by this deadline will result in forfeiture of the
Confidential: The AAA/Ford program is a privileged and confidential CPA Competitive Price
Allowance (CPA) program and incentive amounts listed are not readily visible to Ford dealers in
Ford’s ordering system (Concepts). Orders/quotes received from Ford dealerships using the
AAA FIN codes (Club purchases- LF015, Option Code 56A or service provider purchases–
XE071, Option Code 56A) will price vehicles at invoice. Incentives will be deducted from this
invoice price once the dealer receives the final invoice back from Ford.
As a reminder, Ford occasionally makes special retail promotional offers available to the general
public that may provide equal or better value than the AAA/Ford program. If this should occur,
please encourage your clubs vehicle purchasers and service providers to seek the best deal
available, as the AAA/Ford incentive cannot be combined with any other Ford offer.
Other Program Benefits:
Financing: Ford vehicles can be financed through the AAA/Sovereign Bank Finance
program by calling 1-877-AAA-5046. This program provides the ability for clubs to
withhold vehicle loan payments from contractors’ paychecks while the club remits the
payments to Sovereign.
One Stop Shopping - Light Service Vehicles: AAA clubs and service providers can
take maximum advantage of cost-savings with both the Ford and Knapheide purchasing
programs and realize the convenience of “one stop shopping” when purchasing
Ford/Knapheide light-service vehicles through Midway Ford. Midway Ford will assist in
vehicle ordering, upfitting and making the necessary arrangements to have completed
vehicles shipped to the nearest Ford dealer for delivery. Clubs and service providers
interested in purchasing completed Ford/Knapheide vehicles are encouraged to call
