Yes, but I'm pretty sure mine is dealer stock, so take that FWIW.

Yes, I got my VIN in the past week (from the ford tri-state inventory search - found the exact same order as mine at my dealer). It is noted as "dealer ordered" whatever that means.

It means the order was submitted as "stock" instead of a retail order. Retail units will not show on the public inventory search. Even if they build it, it looks like they aren't shipping many (if any) with the MyFord Touch system. There are only 3 Titaniums showing in inventory across the whole country.

My bud who works at Ford has a Titanium on order with MFT. It was built 2/15. Still has not been released to him. He doesn't know why, but when I mentioned the MFT 'issues' as a possible reason, he said that'd make some sense. Seeing the Edge and Explorer had some MFT issues out the gate, it stands to reason they'd delay the Focus if it has MFT issues. No sense in having public perception be that MFT is a broken system.

That VIN is for a Dealer ordered Titanium Hatch. I told them if this one comes in before my retail order then I will take it.

Strange this VIN brings up an incomplete report, with a build date that makes no sense and no feature lists, variant type, paint colour , nothing. ??

Doing a sampling, that site doesn't seem to work right until a few days after the car is built.

Another potential delay for cars in Red Candy and Tuxedo Black. This delay obviously pales in comparison to the reason behind it, but interesting to know.
