I guess there isn't a rush to make Blue Candy Titanium Focuses with a moonroof AND the winter package.
I ordered a Blue candy Titanium no moon roof on June 20th , no Vin or delivery date yet.

They can test drive it, and I actually would want them to so there is no surprises. It is possible that it could have also been test driven at the factory which would have put more miles on it. The one thing that the dealership cannot do is allow other people interested in buying a car to test dive it.

I've never heard of anyone's car getting sold to someone else unless you decided not to buy it. If your worried about that just express your concern to your sales person or manager close to the delivery time. I'm sure they will take care of you just fine.

Did you get the parking package and 401A, too?

I did, plus navigation, handling package, and luxury package (in other words, everything but the engine block heater). That luxury package might be a Canada-only thing; it includes the moonroof, leather, heated seats, and 6-way power driver's seat.

The U.S. premium/luxury package includes leather, 6-way power seat, rain-sensing wipers, reverse sensors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and armrest w/ cup holders in the back.

We have to purchase moonroof and heated seats (winter package) separately.

Thanks for posting this. Seeing someone else with a timeline like mine makes me feel better. I've seen a bunch of posters here who ordered after me take delivery, and was starting to think I was being screwed somehow. Now I can accept those as the vagaries of the dealer allocation system and just bide my time until August. And I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope our twins ship with a Sync/MFT update that lets us miss out on the worst of the early-adopter pain.

I bought the same options, except the handling package. And mine is the US version. You are going to LOVE the car. Even the navigation is very nice. A few minor issues but those will get fixed since they are software.
You will especially love the color. Pictures do not do it justice.

I also skipped on the handling package...winters on LI have been a bit nasty, plus I was worried about the cost of replacing the 18" tires down the road.

Me too! I tend to run through tires pretty fast. Not sure why since I think I drive pretty easy. But I have yet to have a tire last me through its own warranty!

I do have nitrogen in these tires so will be interested to see if that makes a difference in how long they last.
