How long to order?

Got tired of putting $100 a week in my Dodge Ram , and traded it on a 2012 Focus SE on Z plan yesterday. They didn't have silver, so I ordered one. Salesman says anywhere from 5-7 weeks to get one. Anyone have to wait that long?

That's actually not that long a wait...most of us have waited far, far longer. I ordered mine on March 8, 2011 and it's still not here yet: built April 28, with a dealer ETA of May 21. That's nearly 11 weeks start-to-finish, and that's not anywhere near as long as some people here have waited.

Yeah fastest I've heard of from time of order to picking up the car has been 6 weeks. I'd say most of what I've seen on here so far has been 8 to 10 weeks. Seems like they're picking up steam as they catch up on all the pre orders but regardless its going to be a painful wait... If you don't wanna wait that long look around and see if you can find something similar to what you want. It could be a long drive but it might be worth it. I ordered mine on 5/2 and still don't even have a VIN yet...

That doesn't seem so bad. I'm looking at a three month (14-week) wait. Just put the order in yesterday, delivery date: August 25th-September 1st.

They gave you a delivery date before a VIN? I think your dealer is just giving you aworst car scenario. There's a good chance you'll have it before that unless you were really picky about color. You won't really know until your order is serialized...

Keep in mind when you hear about some of the really long waits, it's because they ordered the car months before it was even released. If you order the car now, and you picked a color not being replaced, you'll likely end up with your delivery in 6-8 weeks.

I was posting in comparison, 6-8 week is nothing compared to the agonizing wait some of us recently went through.

lol, I'm hoping to get it before then as we're going on a road trip during that time (wife's R&R). We factory ordered it through the Exchange New Car Sales Program (ENCS) and that's the time frame they gave us on the purchase order.
