I ordered mine on 23 April.

VIN came on 14 May.

Printed the sticker on 15 May.

It was built this week.

Dealer just notified me that it is in transit.

I am looking forward to this car even more now.

Sticker will show up 5 or 6 days before the actual build date and then Etis will populate with all the minor equipment listing a few days after the actual build.

I have my VIN 1FAHP3M27CL433268. So glad this order went thru as I see in 13 blue candy ONLY comes in leather and NO appearance package option. Now I can look forward to getting the build date.

Current Status as of this AM : In Transit Arrived at Intermediate Point (Norfolk Southern Corp) Ftwayne, IN

OK, that tells me it's on the way and a couple hundred miles closer than the factory. Then I figured I'd call CSX again to see what there status was and it's still "no status"...


So, if my dealer is right the car is on the way but so far no ETA from them. I'd have estimated about 5 days from MI to UT (about 1700 miles at, say, 40mph plus perhaps 15 stops of 5 hours each). Anyone know a more accurate way to figure how long the train might take?

Ultimately it probably won't make much difference to me as I'm on the road for work and will not be home until the end of next week anyway...

My car is "in transit" as well.... as of Friday 5/18.... it was in Indiana going to Chicago..

My dealer says it will make it to Fond du Lac WI by 6/8....... If I started walking today and drive home from Chicago I could cover the 160 miles in eight days!!!!!!!!!!

I do not get it!!!

My car was built 5-7 and CSX keeps telling me "no status", my dealer tells me the ETA is still the 25th (Friday). I sure hope he's right, I ordered my car in February and I don't think I should have to wait any longer? It's already been ridiculusly too long.

Mine is in the transit queue too. I expect that the holiday slows that down a bit too.
