Checked my ETIS and it still wasn't populated (build date 7/29). Didn't like like that fact so I sent a PM to FCS. She responded in under an hour and the response was:

"Not only has it been produced, it's already in transit and on it's way home! According to my system your vehicle's ETA is expected to be on Aug-11-2011. Please keep in mind that dates are subject to change. You should receive a call from your dealer sometime shortly after that date, as it takes a day or two to process the vehicle and add any dealer installed options. Check back with me next week for the latest update. Have a great day!"

If this turns out to be true, just about 8 weeks. 6/18 order date and 8/11,12,13ish delivery.

Hope it's true!!!!!!

Never did hear back from Ford Customer Service. Dealer just called. FINALLY he says there is a build date for 8/22. AND I got my VIN!

I ordered a blue candy sel sedan on 7-28 got vin yesterday and build date scheduled for 8-15. Priority was 10. I am assuming that helped. Can't wait to get my new car, as my pontiac failed to start today. maybe it hates me for getting rid of it..LOL

Hah, excellent. I'm convinced my old car is trying to kill me out of spite as well. I don't want to put any money into it since I'm trading it in and they aren't giving me much to begin with. I won't even let my wife and son in it, just me alone. We are taking her car everywhere until I get this one!

I've got 600km left on my oil change. And a transmission leak I'm trying to beat. Some road dirt and grim must have helped clog the leak cause it's slowed/stopped. But everyone inawhile you feel the loss of power as the tranny falls out of gear.

I'm trading her in as well so don't want to sink any money into it as I'm only getting peanuts in exchange

Can you get a VIN# from Ford at all? My sales rep is unresponsive and slow.
