My car is close...the train arrived at the Doremus Auto Ramp on Newark NJ last night or early this morning. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to travel the last 50-60 miles to my dealership!

My ETIS fields are totally populated. I'm assuming that means the car has been built. How do you find out about shipping status? I have to drive by the dealer today. I think I'll stop in and tell the salesman (the guy who was going to let me know) what the status is. He never seems to know. Looks like I'll miss the FocusFest.

Still waiting on Etis to populate my info. Build date was Friday. May take a few more days, or perhaps sooner. We'll see. Once I get this info, the wait will be much easier to take.

How did you get the rail info? FCS only told me mine left on rail early last week. They gave me an ETA of 8/11 but we'll see what it is this week. My dealership got in touch with me to let me know the car was out of production and entering the shipping process (all of which I already knew because I am following on my end). Since I had him, I asked if Ford gave an ETA (again, which I already got from Ford) and he said they did but he didn't want to give it to me because in his experience, and he has been doing it for quite some time, the first ETA he get's from Ford is usually BS and he did not want to give me misinformation.

Starfury, my build date was one Friday before yours. On Tues the build date updated (mid-day though, not first thing in the morning) in ETIS. On Fri, the full profile updated. Check on and off tomorrow for at least a build date change.

you can try calling and asking customer service, but it seems hit-or-miss. some times they will give detailed shipping information, some times they won't.

I was searching and it appears that you will have to have your dealer contact Ford VOPC (Vehicle Order Processing Center) to get the rail car information. I attempted to call the number to get status and it requires a new updated 8 digit dealer number (Not the same as on the Order Con). My car is still being built but I wanted to see if I was able to get through to an automated system or a live person...

Etis finally updated my build date. Things are slowly starting to move along.

Looks like you are in the lead..... ETIS still shows the generic date for me
