I actually don't know when my VIN became available... my order went in on 7/8 and I just asked my dealer about it today after looking things over here.

Turns out, after looking at ETIS with the VIN, that it's been built since 8/3... waiting on shipping I guess. The ETA my salesman gave me was "week of 8/21".

Is there an average figure on how long shipping has been ACTUALLY been taking (vs. what Ford says), or is it totally up in the air?

Unless there is different sites then ETIS and ResearchManiacs. ETIS just gives a Generic date and RM keep's telling me not in the system. I know they were having problems with the Candy Red so I figured mine would take a bit longer since they must have alot to build using the new Color. If there is a different one to check I would appreciate it though. Thanks

Paste your VIN at the end. It won't exist until they're ready to build it. Not sure how some people manage to get VIN, stickers and build dates all at the same time.


And as far as shipping ETA is they are pretty accurate I think? Because generally if it's not gonna make it they'll send you a second ETA. So if they ETA is in a few days, you can probably rely on it, if the ETA is still 2 weeks away you have the potential to get a 2nd ETA a week after the first or something.

Thank You for the Site but Still Not found there either. I figure middle of next week hopefully... I am hoping I can get one of those private cash Coupons in before it gets built. Hopefully they are still giving them.

Tried using this with my VIN and it didn't work either.

FWIW, I used this and add your VIN after "VIN="

Build week shows on the bottom left on sticker below the VIN bar code box. Its the last set of numbers. Mine has 08 03 11. This is how Ford window stickers have been for some time unless they changed it since last year when I bought my 2010 FX4.
