Kona Blue no longer available
 
Today I went to the dealership trying to put an order on a 2012 Focus 5Dr HB, Kona Blue, with 401A package. The dealer returned with a paper saying "'L6' Kona Blue No longer Available - Delete'. The dealer said Black and Red Candy are also problematic because of the Japan earthquake.

I didn't order for a different color, still haven't decided. Still haven't received the brochure from Ford (it has been a week), the current SwapRide $500 offer will expire on 05/31. My current 12 year old car is still kicking and screaming with no problems. So, I am going to wait.

Eventually, Ford will make Kona Blue available again, right?

damnit, hopefully it's no NEW orders, mine has yet to be built =\

perhaps this is why some people are saying production has stopped? I have ordered the White Tri-Coat... crossing my fingers there are no delays.

I guess this story should be good news then.

Well this probably explains why we were told delivery wouldn't be until Late August/early September (Tuxedo Black Focus) if we put the order in this week.

I ordered an SEL last week and there was no mention of my Tuxedo Black taking 3 months!

It must be the program we're ordering the car through. We decided to go with Sterling Grey and it is still the same time frame.
