So what is the average time it takes for a car from the completion of it being built to when it leave the plant? My Focus has been sitting there since August 4th when it was completed. Is that normal?

define "normal".. in other words. there is no normal when it comes to placing an order, receiving your vin, waiting for build, build times, waiting to ship, shipping time, and actual arrival at the dealer. sorry.

What is the rough average from when a car is done to it leaving Michigan? There has to be some expectations Ford sets with dealers for when a car will ship to them after it's completed.

you sure about the build and delivery date? seems a little tight compared with the order date (4.5 weeks).

Reading through this post and you will probably find nothing average or normal. Seems to vary for everyone. Mine build was done 8/1, put on a train 8/2, delivered to the dealership 8/10. Shipped one day after build complete. Michigan to upstate New York in 9 days.
