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.
MFT touch aside, is eight-ten weeks way too optimistic for a Titanium right now?

Good lookin build! It's interesting that they're moving ahead with it considering the tuxedo black paint delay from Japan. Either they've got some in, and the supply is no longer interrupted, or they've had some in reserve (maybe cause they're not building any more titaniums until the notorious MFT issue is sorted). Either way, congrats and please post some pics as soon as you get it!

Sick of driving my busted civic hatch. First fell in love with the Focus in Europe - have been waiting years to get it over here...I guess i can wait until they fix the MFT.

Id really like to hear actually from Ford on this MFT problem, and how long they are forecasting this fix to take.

We all would, but don't expect it to happen. Ford's done a great job in the last few years of keeping problems 'in house' and then fixing them. This does slow down launches, but it also gives better quality out the gate which helps their reputation.

Think about it. It's better for us to whine we want out pre-orders than it is for us and many others to buy their MFT equipped Focus only to have Ford issue a massive recall almost immediately after launch. That's bad PR.

Wow, nicely spec'd Focus, hope you get it soon. It will be stunning and even more fun to drive with the very good sport tuned suspension.

Thanks GhiaFan, I am pretty excited. I stayed with the SE as I REALLY want to shift and the select shift doesn't do it for me. Currently I drive a Ranger 4wd and a AWD Ford 500 so in another direction and fast.
I am guessing it will deliver in what 4-6 weeks?

Anyone know how long after this is posted that the car is built?

That's the lowest MPG rating I've seen on one of these yet. Is it the sport package?
