Order date: 6/9
Vin: 7/1
Window Sticker : 7/2
Build Date: 7/22
Delivery: 8/1 (week of, Dealer is 20 miles from factory)

Subtract 2 weeks for the plant's summer vacation, and the times all seam reasonable. I ordered an Ingot Silver Titanium.

My dealer has no inventory available, people buy ALL the ones he has ordered, without even seeing them.

My salesman told me that someone wanted to buy mine the night it came in! They had to refuse a test drive as well.

He said they come in and sell FAST. They don't have any on hand to even offer test drives.

Like I said earlier, my car should be in next week, but I'm not going to be taking it home until monday, the 18th... Is the dealership allowed to allow test drives? Also, they are 100% REQUIRED to refuse sales to anyone but me right?

If you put money down then they are required to sale it to you. But even if you did not, they will more then likely hold it for you. I didn't have any problems and I did not have any money down on the car.

If you are concerned, you can go do the paperwork early and put some money down so the car is legally yours.

When I picked my car up it had over 30 miles on it. I was a little pissed as there was no valid reason for that. The salesman said he had to drive it twice but he should have only had to drive it across the street and back to have my remote start installed. Not 30 miles! But I let it go because he was a great salesman and the dealership was awesome.

I wrote a $500 check towards deposit on the car when I ordered it. They said they wouldn't actually cash it until the car came in and I paid the rest, but nonetheless, I don't want anyone buying my car lol.

Got a call from the dealership today...they're expecting my Focus the week of August 15th (13 weeks after ordering). Oddly, no VIN yet (not sure how that works). I was originally quoted 8-10 weeks.

I guess there isn't a rush to make Blue Candy Titanium Focuses with a moonroof AND the winter package.

Ours are twins, due the same week after the same gestation period (except there's no winter package up here in Canuckistan).
