The sales manager at my local dealership just confirmed that 2012s with MFT are not being scheduled at the moment and he has no idea when that will change.

Thanks! I thought maybe the wheels were holding the order up since, my dealer doesn't have any stock orders with them. Good to hear someone else has good news!

Heads up

Just to give you guys an update... I spoke to the GM of the dealership I preordered (Feb 10) and he spoke to one of his "Ford guys" and he said my particular car was slated for a delivery date around April 10th. I hope that gives people a little perspective.

Hey guys, newb here.

I ordered a Titanium hatch a couple of days ago. With MFT. With the issues concerning MFT, what kind of timeline do you guys think I'm looking at? I live in Philly but ordered from a dealer in Michigan because that's where I'm originally from and I have to be back there in a couple of months for Memorial Day weekend and the following weekend and figured it would be fun to road trip it back with my new vehicle. The dealer does a decent volume sales wise (around 400 cars a month), so I'm hoping their allocation level will benefit me. Any guesstimates? From the sounds of it, I might have been way too optimistic about the delivery date.

No clue, man. It all depends on when the MFT issue is solved. Not sure if you saw, but my dealer confirmed there are no ordered cars with MFT being built until the issue is solved.

So there is no way to guess as we don't know when the issue will be fixed, nor how big of a backlog of MFT vehicles they've got to build before they get to yours.
