I decided I am going to order a Maverick. I currently live in Germany and want the truck shipped here. Seems like a great vehicle for a place with $6/gallon gas and a lot of tight spaces.

I pretty much have to buy it through the military auto source. They have no haggle pricing and are familiar with shipping vehicles overseas. I have been messaging with them every couple of weeks since dealers started taking orders but they say they can't order one until their system is updated. Not sure exactly what that means though.

They don't seem to know when they will be able to take my order. Anyone on here know when military buyers can start placing orders?

For the vehicle itself, I am looking at a XLT with the hybrid. Maybe I will do the XLT lux package or maybe just the bed liner and the tow hitch. I would like hybrid AWD but will go FWD since it isn't currently offered. I would also prefer the Lariat seats and adaptive cruise control but adding that adds ~6k to the price for a bunch of other options that are not important to me so I am going to do without the adaptive cruise.

Anyhow, I see that a lot of people are getting builds scheduled in Sept and would like to get in line!

They have to meet the Germany environmental standards and all of that stuff... It's a headache specially if there's any recalls... Wait until your tour is over or Buy something used in the used lot on post. Best of luck

I thought about buying something of the lemon lot and I was getting close to buying a Tiguan but I would rather have a Maverick. They are selling the Bronco Sport already so I don't think it should take too long to get one here. (y)

Awesome! Do you know if all locations are? I am in Stuttgart and the local MAS folks said they would let me know when I can place an order.

Never mind. I see it on the site now. It looks like when I build it out, it double charges for options. For example, clicking the XLT luxury package ($2345 MSRP) will also check the "spray in bedliner", "full size spare", and "trailer hitch receiver w/4-pin connector". All those items are included in the XLT luxury package but the MAS site adds them to the options MSRP in addition to the luxury package MSRP and comes up with $3055.

I assume that gets sorted out on the back end somewhere. I read somewhere else on here that the same thing happens with other orders. If two packages both contain the same option and you buy both, the price gets adjusted so you don't get double charged.

I picked it up mid May.
Automotive parking light Car Wheel Land vehicle Vehicle


Process was OK. I built what I wanted on the Ford site. Sent it to the dealer. Little back and forth with the dealer to get it straight and asked them to order it. Price was MSRP minus $500 or so plus ~2k in transportation and German processing stuff (28k all in for XLT hybrid with luxury package. Gave $500 deposit. Waited.

Dealer must have used his email as I never got any coms from Ford directly. I would ask for an update every 6 weeks or so. I got a VIN within a month but was told my build was pushed back a couple of times. Eventually I stopped asking and figured it would get here when it gets here. I never got an order number so I couldn't use the Ford tracker site either.

Eventually, the dealer told me that they knew the rough date it would make it in country but weren't sure when it would get down to them. Another few weeks go by and they told me they got it. I didn't finance it so they had me sign a funds withdrawal form (basically a check) and gave me a checklist of stuff to do to get they truck. Had to go straight to customs and do some paperwork there with the vehicle.

I placed my order and never changed it. I feel I was a pretty easy customer. I also didn't fret about little stuff like the fits package that hybrid orders were supposed to get or the fact that I got the truck and didn't get a full tank of gas (my fault as I forgot to get the receipt).

I would order from them again but would also manage my expectations if you do.
