I called my dealer today to check on the status. My build date was 8/15. He said the system shows that the car is built and he is waiting for shipping info (via UPS tracking). He told me to call back later in the week when he has a rail car number for me. The system is showing a delivery date of 8/22. I am not holding my breath. It will travel by rail to Buffalo and then put on a truck to Cortland.

How are people getting this kind of information (shipping specifics)?

All I can get from Ford is that it's on it's way somewhere and the week they think it'll show up. But some people in this thread seem to be able to get rail information and delivery times down to the day.

I got mine from jazzdog here on the forums. I never asked him to do it, he just started giving me updates. I think I posted my VIN in one of the posts and started getting updates shortly after. I'm sure there are other ways to get more detailed information. I just got an email from my salesman and he said it would be here later tonight or tomorrow morning so I'm on cloud nine right now.

I wanna smack my dealer. Supposed to be a good one, my friend set works with her and gave us the introduction. Her dad is vice pres or manager or something and the more and more I deal with her the more she just seems to be "daddys little girl". Totally incompetent and unwilling to do any work. I asked for any and all updates about my car at the beginning of everything and she was all smiles and "for sure, you'll be the first to know" now it's just here's Fords number, call them instead of me. Yeeesh, I realize friend of a friend isn't a strong connection, but I wonder how she would treat joe blow off the street. Terrible service. Wish I could change my sales rep now.

My dealer did not give me detailed info at all and also new nothing about the website that gives you the window sticker prior to build time. Apparently the system that Ford gives the sales people to track cars is very limited in the information it provides. However, there are those who do work for Ford or are members on this forum who seem to be able to get all kinds of details. Why the sales people don't have access or are not shown how to access this info is beyond me.

A sales rep has access to your order number, priority number, VOC,VIN#, and DORA. If not directly than at least through someone at the dealership. If they don't want to get up and talk to that person without being reminded daily to check for updates then they aren't doing you a good service. Their commitment shouldn't end after you've agreed to sign on the dotted line. Between trying to get new customers they should be ensuring a positive relationship with you until the minimum of you getting in your new car and driving away. I won't be recommending her to anyone, and I know my dad was looking to trade in his ranger for something new, so she'll lose that sale.

Preach it, brother. My dealer has been completely non-responsive too, and it will definitely cost them any shot at my post-delivery business (repairs, maintenance, off-season tire storage, etc.).

if you have your VIN you can find your build date on your window sticker.
