New member ordered a Titanium Hatch!

Hi all,

I'm very excited. I put my order in on Monday for a Titanium hatch in black/black. Ordered it with 401A package, the winter package, moonroof, park assist package, navigation and will be going to the dealer in the AM to see if I can add remote start. From what I understand, and understood when I ordered, is that it's dealer-installed (not factory), so I can add it afterwards. I figure I'll just add it now and finance it with the car.

I ordered on Monday 21 Mar 11. I was told 6-8 weeks, but with the issues with paint suppliers from Japan, I fear it could be a little longer. The wait is tolerable though, as I've got my Harley to ride when the weather warms up a bit, and I'll be able to make a bigger downpayment.

Any idea what I should expect for delays? MyFord Touch and the paint supply issues are all I've heard so far. Are there more possibilities?

Congrats, sounds like it's very nicely equipped.

This early in the ramp up of the 2012s, and with all the supply chain risks now with Japan, its probably impossible to give a reliable estimate of delivery.

I'd say 6-8 weeks is too optimisitc though, that would be a good guess in normal times. I'd say more like 12 weeks, but who knows, I'm just guessing.

I'm heading to the dealer tomorrow to see what they say. I'm wondering if I could change to the Sterling Grey Metallic paint. I got my order in before all the news broke about the delay. I'm hoping they'll have a DORA for me tomorrow. It's probably too early for a VIN, but you never know... They've got some others that have been built pending freight.

*fingers crossed*

You're ordering a FIRST YEAR re-model Ford? What are you...out of your mind? J/K....congrats.

If I were you and wanted my car faster, I'd seriously consider another color. Black will take the longest due to dependance on Japan for the chemicals.
Plus black cars always look dirty unless you wash them constantly. I'd say go with hot pink.

What does DORA stand for? If I recall, doesn't that report come out on Thursday, or is it Friday?
I ordered on 3/8 and haven't heard from my dealership yet. I thought I would have at least heard by now that the order had been accepted and the next step was to be assigned a VIN. I'm going to give them 4 weeks and if I have not heard from them, place a weekly call asking, what's the status of my car, what's the status of my car, what's the status of my car, what's the status of my car... anyway, you get the idea.

Like others here, I've not gotten any kind of estimate at all on delivery, much less a VIN. Mine's a Titanium Hatch, White Tri-Coat, with all the interior/exterior factory options and packages except: Exterior Protection, Graphics, Door Sill Plates.

Ordered 8-March. My guess is I'll be seeing it sometime in May 2012.

Just got home from the dealer, who said they'll know Wednesday if I'm a material hold. According to his order summary on the system, all the orders for the dealership (except for a Mustang) are clean and accepted.

DORA stands for Dealer Order Receipt Acknowledgement. I should have a VIN number on Thursday morning if all is good, and it should be allocated to build at that time. I was asked to stop by on Friday, and we'll see if there's any sort of hold on the vehicle. If there is, we'll fix it and move forward from there.

The company wouldn't have accepted the order as "clean" if there were any anticipated problems as is. We're anticipating the car's arrival to be within 6 weeks.
