Talked to my dealer last week and he said it was built. The build date was April 27. He said it shows that it's on hold for a MFT problem. Don't know any more then that at this point. It would be nice if it was on the way down here but I don't know. I placed the order on Feb.9. It's getting a little frustrating now.

Mine got on the train last week - so I hope yours is on there too and your dealer just neglected to tell you.

I can see holding a car for problems, but a month is a long time. I wonder if they are waiting for a specific part and that is causing the delay.

I do want everything to be working correctly when I pick it up but yes, a month is a long time setting at the factory.

Cool, my VIN finally showed up in ETIS with all the details. I guess now the real waiting begins as it sits on some lot waiting for transportation.

'Private cash' offer

A bit off topic, but because of this thread I signed up for 'more information on the 2012 Focus at the Ford web site. I picked up my 2012 SE Sport last Tuesday and Wed morning I received an email from Ford with a $750 'Private Cash' offer. I was back into the dealership that day for Llumar ceramic window film install and told the salesperson about the email and had the printed offer page with certificate # on it. He talked to the sales manager and they input the offer in the system and I signed a paper and should be getting the $750 in 4-6 weeks!

Thanks guys!

PS - Also got $500 off for Ford finance and they told me I have to pay on it for 3 months before I pay it off, but like others in this thread it says nothing in the contract about that and says no prepayment penalty so I'm paying it off as soon as I get the payment info.

So, you already paid for you car, and now they will be sending you a check for $750 to cover the discount you didn't get at time of purchase? Cold hard cash 9so to speak)?

If so, awesome.

Just spoke with my salesman... he said the black paint is holding it up. Had him change the color to gray. He did tell me my order is "expedited" so it shouldn't take too long... :\

Yes, it was the next day after I picked it up. I got the email when I woke up that morning and went to the web site for the certificate print out and took it with me to the dealer. I was hanging out waiting for window film to get installed and listening to a technical presentation (to dealership sales folks) on the new Ecoboost turbo V6 in the F150 and started talking to another sales guy. I ask him about the $750 certificate and he said I should ask my salesman and they could probably apply it since I just picked up the car day before. I owe my sales guy an Outback restaurant gift card for that one.

By the way, for anyone in the PHX area, I can't say enough about Berge Ford in Mesa for the buying experience and service too. Totally satisfied in all aspects. I got $1K off the sticker price, they gave me more for my Scion xB than I could have sold it for (used cars are in REALLY high demand right now), and then the $500 finance discount and the $750 'private cash' after the sale. The GF is already planning on buying a new Focus there she likes mine so much.
