Focus in dealer inventory

A car showed up online in the inventory search and I asked if it was my car and I was told it wasn't! I could take that car but I would lose my 500 rebate. Thats lame. Plus mine has MFT so I am waiting. ugh

Yeah, the dealer would have to eat the $500, cause Ford will only do it on the Retail VIN. Besides, if it has MFT, chances are it won't be at your dealer any time soon (unless they fix the problem before it's built)

Just got off the phone with my dealer. Called for a vin# on the '12 Focus we ordered. Really surprised at their answer when they told me it was to be delivered in 11 days....

Order date: 3-16-11
Build date: 2-30-11
Delivery: 4-8-11

Focus (C346N) VIN Number: 1FAHP3F25CL134651

Was wondering if anyone could help me locate a window sticker for this car to check the options ordered are what were actually built on the car??

We spec'd as;

2012 Focus SE Sedan
Automatic
Sterling Grey Met.
SFE pkg.
Winter pkg.
Convenience pkg.
Home link RV mirror
Window rain guards
Hood deflector
Cargo protector

MSRP: $20,709

I ordered mine in February and had a VIN two weeks ago. I was told to expect 4 April delivery, but I'm a pessimist so I say it might be there the end of April if I'm lucky. Doesn't matter to me either way as I won't get back from Germany until the end of April regardless. Oh well, still nice knowing something "I ordered" has come in. It's like receiving a REALLY big package in the mail!

The link is:

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3F25CL134651

But something is wrong. Either your VIN has a typo, or the system isn't updated with it yet. I would try it again tomorrow.

Monday, April 4 is a true delivery date, at least here in FL. They're doing deliveries every Monday.

Got an email earlier today from one of the dealerships I've developed a relationship with, and he informed me that a dealer ordered Titanium should get in "any day now." This dealership is about 50 miles away from me, so I don't think that this is a ploy to get me into the showroom, so maybe they're starting to get those MFTs workin?? Any new updates I'll be sure to post!

I don't think I would hold my breath waiting for the Titanium model right now. I am hoping that it will be available by the end of April.
