I have a question. My windows sticker shows 5/21 as the build date, ETIS shows a build date of 5/23. I dont really care to much as long as it is made, but would ETIS be the more reliable date?

NEVER MIND. I just looked again and the build date in ETIS is now valid - shows 5-20. So hopefully it will be on its way to Atlanta SOON. I can hardly wait!
This is the second time I've seen someone state that their original build date was moved ahead by a day or two but showed up in ETIS within 1-2 days rather than the normal 4 days. However, it seems like it showed up in ETIS about 4 days from the original build date. My car was supposed to be built the 21st also but nothing shows yet. I wonder if in these cercumstances it was a QA issue and they weren't considered completed (built) until the QA issued was solved and that is why the normal 4 days lag for ETIS didn't apply?

My ETIS details were posted today (5/24), 4 days after the actual build date (5/20), which was one day later than the originally scheduled build date on the window sticker (5/19). Must have been a minor delay in the build.

Very nice. My 16 year old son can't wait to drive my new Focus when it comes in, and he'd love that license plate - he has the same name.

I have the best salesman! If anyone in the Atlanta area is thinking of getting a Focus, let me know and I will tell you who I used.

I ordered my car 4-19 and he has called me, unprompted, every week with an update. He just called me today to let me know he was looking but cannot tell yet if my car has been placed on a rail - but that he is checking daily. He also said it "popped up" that I had received the $750 privacy cash offer from Ford. Since my car was not a special order, I was surprised to hear that my dealer was notified of me receiving the coupon. Regardless, my salesman told me "that will be taken off of what we discussed". He is so easy going and helpful, unlike any other car salesman I have ever dealt with!

Now for my car....the details are now in ETIS. I am not sure reading through them was helpful with all the "more" and "less" listed. I did have one question - I ordered the "winter package" that should come with all weather floor matts - but ETIS says I get carpeted. Honestly, I prefer carpeted - but am curious about the difference between ETIS and what I ordered. Should I take a check off list when picking up my car to make sure it has everything it is suppose to have?
