Angry I want my focus already!!

My dad works for ford and I wanted a new car so I ordered a focus ZX3 SES. I ordered my focus July 5th. Due to a two week shutdown it would bring the standard 4-8 weeks to 6-8. My dad called the plant it was being made in and got some info on it. It was built July 31. Now it has left the shop from Wayne. Its either on a train a 18 wheeler who knows. My dad said he can not look at where it is anymore since it has left the plant but he said the dealer can. So my dealer calls me he says the same thing my dad told me. It was built July 31 and should arrive August 21. A few weeks go by and I call the dealer. My salesman was not there that day so I talked to a lady I tell her my name and my car and she says it should be at the dealership at the end of this week( August 11ish) beggining of next week (August 16thish). So I got really excited told my parents and everyone. A few days go by and my dad says to call and have my salesman track to see where the last stop was. My salesman said he can't do that and he said my car will be at the dealership August 25. I was like WTF! I just talked to some lady who said it would be here at this time..blah blah. He was like I don't know who you talked to..yadayada..So I hangup with him and I'm mad. I go to the measures of going to another dealership and I looked and test drove a Mustang b/c I want a car now! So my dad called and talked to the guy and he would call the salesman and he said he would look further into it and call me back. That was on Thursday. Now it is Saturday and I heard nothing from this guy. What should I do? Go up there? They can't avoid me then.

The car you wanted wasnt at any other dealer within 100 miles of you? I would wonder if maybe they didnt do an indepth enough dealer check?

Rember: good things come to those who wait.

go to another ford dealer and tell them you will buy it if they can find the car you want before they call you to pick up the one you ordered.

They did a search when I bought it. I even gave different colors than the one I wanted. I also put on a lot of features that most focuses do not have that is probably why they didn't have one that was close. My salesman said he would look every day to see if a focus like the one I ordered pops up at a different dealer. I went to a couple nearby dealers a few days ago and you can't find many focuses. Everyone wants them b/c gas is so high.

You should be happy, if you get your car in 6-8 weeks.

One jear ago I ordered a new Focus here in Germany with lot of extra stuff and especially a diesel engine with particle filter (I hope, thats called so in the USA ).

It took 7 months!!! until I got my new car!
But that was an exception even here in Europe. Normally a new car is delivered in 8-12 weeks.
