Who gave you this info. All I've been told is my vehicle is in transit. I called the 800 number last Friday and they told me my vehicle would be here tuesday but fordcustomerservice couldn't even give me a date and told me to check back again friday. I'm getting so pissed off at the lies, I ordered on 6-7.

We have no buses here, so if it doesn't get here I may have to rely on my bicycle.

See my signature for the one and only phase of my ordeal to happen quickly. Started production on a Thursday and shipped on the following Monday. Two weeks later it's still slowly wending its way across the western US.

Natasha and FordCustomerService has been great for me, more so than the dealership. PM FordCustomerService on this forum. You can provide them a VIN and they should be able to track it down for you.

I haven't posted for a couple weeks. Here's where things stand (for those of you who have seen some of my posts). The Sonic Blue hatch I DIDN'T ORDER (after finding out Kona Blue (my original order on 05-May)) was no longer available on 05-Jun I told the dealer to order Sterling Gray on 07-Jun; on 31-July the window sticker for that car became available; however, my dealer somehow messed up the Sterling Gray order, Ford never got it, so when they saw the original Kona Blue they just substituted Sonic Blue; I can't tell you how unhappy I was to see that window sticker) will arrive at my dealer in New Hampshire next Monday (5-speed, 203A package, SE Sport Package, All Weather Package, Exterior Protection Package, cargo liner). I called the dealer on 31-July, REALLY UNHAPPY, and on Monday 01-Aug they called me back and said they'd put in a special order for Sterling Gray. I just spoke to them today and the VIN has been assigned, the build date also, and it's scheduled at the dealer in mid-September. I'm writing this reply to let you all know that if you're interested in a Sonic Blue hatch with the packages noted above, and don't want to wait anymore, you could contact your dealer and let them know one will be arriving at Ford of Londonderry (again, New Hampshire) next Monday.

Ah, I threw a post up a couple of weeks ago directed at you in the hopes that you would be reading just to see what the resolution was (you were still waiting for the dealership to get back to you at that point).

Well, not ideal by any means for you but if it is any consolation, some of the people that have ordered recently seem to have things moving much faster than they did when we ordered.

That's a perfect example of when I priority 1 should be issued. You should jump ahead of the line.

Copernicium112,

When they told me on 01-Aug they were going to special order the Sterling Gray and it would be in "shortly after the Sonic Blue car" I didn't believe them given it was a total of 10-11 weeks for the Sonic Blue car. But, as you said in your reply just above, and given the Sterling Gray car will arrive in basically 6 weeks from when it was ordered, I think you're correct in that Ford seems to have squared away whatever issues they were having on the assembly line and things are starting to flow as they should.
BTW, I like your handle, the heaviest chemical atom.
