TO: AAA Automotive Professionals AAA Purchasing Professionals AAA Insurance Professionals CC: AAA Club Field Staff (as approved by individual clubs) FROM: Doug McLendon, Director, Roadside Programs and Benefits 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 purchases. New! Ford introduces the new Transit Connect to the AAA program vehicle lineup for the 2010 model year. Program Eligibility: 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 person. Vehicles must be used in the course of business and titled to a business name. This offer is valid in the US only. 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 incentives. 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 Ashley of Midway Ford at 800-923-3219 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Discount Parts Program: AAA clubs are eligible to participate in Ford’s National Fleet Parts Pricing program (NFPP) and receive discounted pricing on Ford and Motorcraft parts purchased from participating Ford, Lincoln and Mercury dealerships. The NFPP offers competitive national fleet parts pricing on genuine Ford and Motorcraft mechanical parts (at or below the suggested “Not to Exceed”/ceiling price). Discounts average 15% off regular retail pricing. The NFPP is available at participating Ford Motor Company Dealers and Ford Authorized Distributors (FAD's) across the nation.
