"FordCustomerService" here on the forum told me that it could take up to 3 weeks from the date the VIN is assigned for the sticker to become available. Monday the 11th will mark the end of week number 2 since my VIN was assigned and the sticker is not available as of yet. However; I was provided with an estimated delivery date of 8/8/11.

How could they give you a delivery date if they can't generate a sticker for it or tell you your build date? Something isn't making sense.

My order went in on 6/8, VIN on 6/22, sticker was available immediately, build date of 6/28, ETIS report available 7/3, delivery date week of 7/18.

It's an odd deal.... My dealer sent me the 8/8/11 date. I asked "FordCustomerService" to take a peak and she was able to confirm that date. The system shows no build date and no sticker available as of yet.

My order was placed 6/10 and the VIN was available 6/27.

My car is supposedly going to arrive at the dealer for July 11th. The dealership is going to call me as soon as it arrives on the lot. However, my sales guy is on vacation until the following monday (18th), so that's most likely when I get to take it home! [ordered 6/2/11]

Crossing my fingers it comes in next week!

I don't know why you would have to wait that long for delivery. If your sales guy is gone have the sales manager finish it up for you. I know I wouldn't want to wait an extra week.

your sales guy doesn't have to be there for you to get the car. i wouldn't leave my car sitting on their lot a week, you can bet it won't have 0 miles on it when you get there a week later.

Yeah, I know... but I dealt with a specific sales guy (and they all work on commission), and I know it takes a few days to prepare the car... anyways, the dealer is calling me as soon as it arrives on their lot, then maybe I can talk about them using it as a test drive machine...

It doesn't take a few days to prepare... My dealer received the car the same day I drove off the lot with it.

And your salesman does not need to be there.. Don't let it sit for a week!

I would never be able to wait a week! Hoping to order mine this w/e. Been trying to wait to see the outcome of the MFT update coming up, but I want the car before I have to drive in snow again!
