You might want to check with your dealer. If you ordered Red Candy chances are it is the color choice holding your order up. The Red Candy is currently on hold due to pigment shortages out of Japan. Ford isn't building any more Tuxedo Black or Kona Blue for the same reason. You could be waiting a while for that color. I decided to order Sterling Grey so I wouldn't have to wait.

This is one of the reasons we didn't bother to order one. We looked at every dealer within driving distance on the east coast. Found a Tuxedo Black Ti Hatch with all options minus park assist. Bought it that day.

I tried to go that route but there were hardly any Titaniums within 500 miles of Denver. The few I could find were either Blue Candy which I didn't care for, or didn't have the sunroof and nav.

I ordered 6/9, but it was on materials hold because sonic blue wasn't available. Just got this vin on 6/24.

I ordered on June 24th. Long wait coming for sure. I don't like waiting. But hey, when you order you get what you want, right?

Of course, getting back to your question, that isn't true when it comes to some of the colors that have been discontinued.

I had a deposit down on a Kona Blue SE Hatch that was coming in from Long Island to Pittsburgh on a dealer trade. I wasn't sure about the Kona, as it seemed to work well on some cars (Mustang) and not as well on others (sorry to those who own a Kona Blue Edge). But I could always decline and it would have sold in minutes. Turns out the dealer in LI ended up selling the Kona Hatch, so I decided to order.

I was bouncing between Ingot Silver Metallic and Sterling Gray Metallic. There were two such examples on the lot that I kept walking back-and-forth to after the rest of the build was written. Then an Oxford White sedan came up and parked. Went in and told the salesman to make it Oxford White.

Looks like I'll be one of the few and the proud...the members of the Oxford White 2012 Se Hatch group.

I wanted Kona Blue initially but I obviously couldn't order it. I heard that Sonic Blue was replacing it, so I googled it, and ordered that instead. Took two weeks to get a vin due to the car being on "materials hold". But, got the vin, and smooth sailing from here...
