Thanks. Mine has everything as well, and the MFT has really been pretty good, though after picking the car up after warranty work for an unrelated problem, Sync no longer worked. Disconnected the battery for 10 minutes, and it worked again.

The quality problems for me have been leaking o-rings in the A/C compressor, slipped tranny, and the adhesive that holds the headliner to the plastic frame around roof in front of the sunroof has completely failed so it feels extra flimsy when using the sunroof controls (fixed that with some double stick tape, but come on...) I haven't owned an American car in eight years, now I remember why :(

I have also ordered a Blue Candy Titanium. Ordered the car on April 26th. Car was finally built on June 13th. It has been in transit now for 2 weeks and the dealer says I should finally get the car next week.

Amen to that! I also wish that I could pick up my car at the factory, and save everyone some time and money by driving it home.

That's already outside the 8-10 weeks I was quoted, and doesn't include getting it across the continent (and across the border). I'm thinking I might go car shopping this weekend.
I hate to follow-up to my own post, but I wanted to say that I've managed to talk myself down off the ledge. I found out yesterday that I'll be working overseas for most of July, so if my Focus was here it would be gathering dust anyway. And maybe a later build date will mean it ships with an updated MyFord Touch.

I retail ordered a Ti last week in the new black. It was supposed to be allocated last night. The dealer told me this morning none of his orders for Foci were placed. He is not sure why as he has plenty of allocations. He told me to stand by. This may be because of the plant vacation shut down or something else? He had different models for inventory allocated and three retail orders that are still just sitting there. Has anyone that ordered in the last week received a VIN today?

Best Regards,
FLA2Smoker (love the smell of premix and racing fuel in the morning)

He told me they are going to contact the regional manager to see what the problem is. My dealership has multiple locations here in Florida and none of their orders were scheduled this week (For Foci). I will let you know when and if I find out anything.

Hi it took me 8 weeks almost to the day to get my vin#. I know my titanium hatch was built on the 22 of June, but I wish someone could tell me how here in Canada we can tell where it is in the shipping process. I have been told by the dealer it will arrive arround the 25th of July that will be almost 12 weeks to the day since we ordered it. I am on the far western side of Canada.
