that's bull.. do you have any confirmation your order even went in? print screen of the order? anything? no reason you shouldn't have one by now.

I finally got my VIN today.

2012 Focus - VIN 1FAHP3H24CL205108

The only problem is that I was told the build date wouldn't be till July 20-27. So that puts me on the backside of the plant shutdown. Patience is a virtue.

your build date is on your window sticker in the upper left. will start with 12011 or 22011 or something like that (mine is 120110628).

Nope...I just have their word that it was ordered. I'll give them one more week...I think week 6 of an 8-10 week estimate should be enough time.

i think it would delay shipment. plant shutdown means everyone at the plant from the receptionist to the loaders. even the robots get a break.

"Vacation Shutdown is scheduled for the weeks beginning on 7/4 and 7/11/2011"

Looks to me that they are shut down the entire week of the 4th as well as the entire week of the 11th.

Mine has made it to Tampa!!! Woot!! But my dealer says it still takes like two days to get off the train, washed, waxed and over to the dealer. My salesman said he would probably be calling me on Thursday or Friday with it all ready. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself for two whole days!! What did you guys do in the last few days?
