Do you think you are still going to get yours in kona? Only reason I ask is because my dealer said last Saturday that my kona order should be ok, only to call me Tuesday and inform me that they are now out of it.

On the windows sticker, what does the code 4-Rebill mean? It's located straight under the MIC number. I've noticed on some stickers it will say 9-Normal instead.

I just talked to a second shift supervisor at the Michigan Assembly plant. He said they built 627 cars on yesterday's second shift and the first shift did around 600. They've worked through some issues with both suppliers and quality control. This is the first week they have hit 1200 cars a day. Things are starting to look up for Ford and Ford customers.

My build day was originally Monday, dealer called Tuesday said kona was not available. I then picked oxford white, and he said Tuesday that it would be built Wednesday.

It makes sense why people are now seemingly only taking 6 weeks for delivery instead of 8-12 in most cases(sometimes months).

I ordered on 05/10/11 and I am scheduled for factory built the week of the 30th. I don't have a VIN# yet though.

My Kona Blue hatch was built yesterday, according to the window sticker. It must be one of the last batches of that color.

My car was built yesterday....not sure how I feel about mine being one of the 1200+ they built for the first time in one day!

Now it is just a matter of it getting on the rail. My dealer said he will call me later today with an estimate of when it should get on the train. After that he said he will be able to give me daily updates. He is a good salesman to work with!
