copy and paste above url, substituting your VIN for the X's after the "vin=". hope that shows up ok after i post this...
Are you sure that link is right? I can't get any vin to work with it.

From what FordCustomerService told me, it could take up to 3 weeks from the date the VIN is issued for the sticker to become available. I am in the same boat as my VIN was issued on June 27. I am very impatiently waiting too!

15% off the $1400 extended warranty? or 15% off price of car?

When Honda Dealer overcharged me $300 I made them refund me the $300 plus the interest I would pay over 5 years.

Your VIN doesn't generate your window sticker online until around (7) ACTUAL days before your scheduled build date.

Yes, I did read that somewhere. I'm just happy my dealer was able to at least give me some sort of time frame. I'm not within the seven days yet.

this is not what i was told. i was told once ford accepts your order and your vin is assigned you can grab your window sticker at any point, all it is doing is pulling down the vin and options you have chosen and putting them in a pretty sticker format vs. a plain old report you can run as well.

Finally got a build date from Ford of Canada's Customer Relationship Centre (their euphemism, not mine), and it's not good news. Build is now scheduled for the week of 25 July, which is already beyond the 8-10 weeks I was originally quoted. That means delivery some time in late August, more than three months after I ordered. On top of that my trip to Europe this month (which was supposed to distract me from this mess) was cancelled yesterday, so I'm back out on the ledge again. I might be going car shopping tomorrow.
