SyncMyRide now shows my car's software details. Got the Gen2 V2.11 update. Awesome.

FCS said my car is built but said the del date is now 8/15 instead of 8/8 that they told me before.
Anyone know any more about the change in Red Candy Metallic?

Thanks to everyone who has answered my other questions.

SEL Hatch ordered 5/18

Maybe. The train might make a quick stop in Rochester (a.k.a the middle of nowhere a.k.a where the wheel fell off the wagon), drop mine off and continue Eastward. Here's hoping they do. Did you get an ETA from FCS?

Cool, one more step down. Mine updated Monday and they said it is already in transit (whatever that means, maybe it means it is just out of production and awaiting shipment, I have no idea). Anyhow, we both got the V2.11 so I for one am happy that I don't have to go get an update, it is already done. I'd imagine you are as well.

I've noticed they seem to work on this "Monday" thing when they don't have any concrete info. My original ETA was 8/1 (on a 7/29 build, HAH, right! OK!). The next week they moved it to 8/8. I was fully expecting this week to have it moved to 8/15 (like you did) but they gave me an 8/11 date. Still not sure I trust it though.....

Thanks!
My VIN was disclosed by the dealer on 7/15 ,10 days after placing the order.
The window sticker became available on 8/02. The sticker and the dealer tell me that production is scheduled for this week.

Good luck with yours

It varies really, mine was a month from placing my order. I think it all depends on timing and if your lucky enough not to have any delays. Ten days is really fast though. I usually takes three days just for Ford to accept the order so it's really more like a week.

Seems everyone who ordered in July is getting their VIN#'s abit quicker than in the past.
17 days and still waiting for mine though, sales rep said her manager wasn't in today so she couldn't check.. >_> Hopefully will have mine tomorrow or saturday.

I agree, I think the paint problem and the plant vacation schedule during the first two weeks of July really backed things up. It caused a lot of speculation and pain for a lot of people on here. Looks like the plant is back to running on all cylinders now and the build time is back to 6-8 weeks. If the stars align properly and no train derailments in Kentucky my vehicle will have taken 8 weeks from order to delivery.

I am getting really frustrated with Ford Canada as I ordered my Ti Hatch on
April 28th, and received my vin # with in a day of the build date June 22 but at the moment I am still waiting for delivery and apparently Ford Canada is having difficulty tracking where this vehicle is. Delivery is to Victoria BC. I just find it mind boggling that
they can't tell me where the vehicle is.

Yeah, I don't blame you. With that order date and build date there is no reason why you shouldn't have your car now, or at the very least know where it is. Personally (besdies the fact that I would be beyond frustrated and more like furious) I would keep pounding on FCS Canada until you get a satisfactory answer. Maybe the people you have been talking to don't have that information but someone there must be able to get it. Keep going until you get to that person. There have been some people on this thread that have had problems (Hillbilly, I'm looking in your direction) but seriously, you are pushing 14 weeks. That's not right!
