Ford is expanding its employee discount program in an effort to boost domestic sales by labeling its workers as "sales ambassadors" and providing them with five additional discount PINs that reduce the price of any new model manufactured by FoMoCo.
Previously, employees were provided with eight numbers to pass out to friends, family and anyone else the employee deemed worthy. That number has now grown to 13 in a campaign the Blue Oval is dubbing "Pindemonium." Additionally, the more you give away, the more perks you receive, including chances to win gasoline gift cards that you can then hand over to your bro who just bought an F350.

      Lawtrainee what crack are smoking? The Fusion and Milan have higher quality than the Accord or Camry. My mother has an 06 Fusion, and it is just fine thank you. The civic is a hideous turd with a 1980's cimmarron digital dash.

        Ford fusion being better than Accord or Camry? Never will the POS fusion be better. Resale value and quality sucks on it. It's still a Ford product, so what do you expect. I'm glad I went with a Honda Civic.
          • 8 Years Ago
          First off, Civic isn't the same class as Fusion. Second, Fusion's quality has already beat Camry and Accord. As for resale, I haven't nor will I spend the time to look that up and I'm willing to bet you didn't either and are just spouting crap.

          Hope your happy with your Civic, POS that it is, trans will probably fail at 37,000 miles like my girlfriend's friend's Accord did. Guess what she was told by Honda? If it was a toaster, you wouldn't expect them to fix it at 13 months old with a 12 month warranty.

          Even Honda knows that they sell nothing but appliances.

      I had an in-law look at a Fusion for 15k with the employee discount. Did not matter to him, he got a Civic hybrid instead.

      The Fusion is not that great of a car, its new, but compare to a Camry and Accord it does not meet expectations. The gaps, the poor quality, the cheap plastic. Fusion/Ford should know better. Made in Mexico = falls apart.

      Granted the fusion is based on the Mazda zoom zoom, it does do well in corners. But the v6 is ancient and needs to go.

        Well, I could say that starting out with an anecdote of a customer choosing a car in a completely different segment than Fusion lowers your credibility.

        OK, I admit I misrecalled - it was the Milan, not Fusion, that won the the midsize class for Ford beating Accord and Camry (Fusion's other sibling, Zephr, also won it's class). Still my disagreement with your post still stands. From the 3 categories you have, we see Fusion-vs-Camry score as 2 wins and 1 tie, and Fusion-vs-Accord is 1 win and 2 losses. Looks pretty toe-to-toe to me. You even concluded "Ford essentially tied the other car makers".

        That doesn't justify your statement "The Fusion is not that great of a car, its new, but compare to a Camry and Accord it does not meet expectations. The gaps, the poor quality, the cheap plastic."

        Seems like American cars get slammed even when they build good ones. The article wasn't even about Fusion.

      And why are the employee's not selling these on ebay?
        • 8 Years Ago
        Because we would be "... subject to prosecution for fraud against the company, up to and including termination, plus reimbursement to the company for the difference of the A/X plan to the MSRP price of the vehicle."

        The purchaser has to own the vehicle for 6 months.

        Getting a discount of $1,500 - $2,000 (for someone else) isn't worth it, really, compared to the salary.

      Yet another BOLD MOVE from our friends in Dearborn.
        • 8 Years Ago
        Ugh. I hate that campaign theme...but I do like employee discounts.
      • 8 Years Ago
