Ask to see the actual order - priority should be on there - near the top if I remember correctly.

I ordered on 5/4 - had VIN around 5/18 and build date is today (5/26) - all this was at priority 10 which from what I understand is pretty high priority.

Dealer called and my car should arrive June 4th! It is on the train, making its way to Georgia. He offered to go to the rail yard to pick it up for me if I wanted it on the 4th. But I cannot pick it up until the 6th anyway. I am so pumped.

I ordered 4/19, car built 5/20. I looked at my order form and it shows priority 19.

After much delay because of the Kona Blue debacle, got a VIN now:

1FAHP3J20CL182873

Took exactly one month to get VIN after original order, and revision because of color. Build date week of June 13th? Ugh.

Well, you could look at it as there being more time for the factory to apply any MFT fixes they develop before it's built.

Sorry to hear it took so long, though.

My new Focus Titanium has been built

I received my Vin# 1FAHP3N28CL167449 and the sticker indicates that it was built on 5/24/2011.

Is there anyway to know when/if it has been shipped and possibly track the vehicle.

When You get your VIN#

I ordered my 2012 Focus Titanium on 5/3/2011, I called the salesman yesterday (5/26/2011) and got the VIN#, then checked and my car was built on 5/24/2011. So that was three weeks, 21 days from order to build.

Now the wait for the shipment to the DFW area.
