I got mine today

I got mine today too! In the tradition of crappy photos, here's mine :D.



I got the tint of 35% all round except the front. I promise I will post better photos later, espcially since I have seen next to no Red Candy Matallics.

(the attempt at the $6,000 warranty upsale really drained me *yawn*)

Things to note:

No, I did not buy the dealer warranty - I am doing my research thanks to you guys!

The cover for the key hole was missing. Emailed my sales person a pic since they are looking for the precious 100% customer service survey! (muwhahwwaahaha)

And to verify the engine cover situation, my did not have one. I twisted their arm to get one. Interestingly enough one sales rep told me that it was due to the mounting being faulty (using only three pins). I find this hard to believe since I work with engineers and they tend to be pretty anal with their designs.

The word on this forum has been that the covers stopped being included as a cost savings measure.

I guess the problem was that the car was not built until 8/2!! It's here now in CA now though.

My window sticker was just generated within the last hour. Has today's date on it. Little puzzled as to why it took up until now at 10pm to get a sticker with todays date but I guess it'll be built tomorrow. Hopefully no more delays!

My window sticker showed up this morning and, wonder of wonders, everything is correct! Build date is 23-Aug; dealer expects it sometime around 14-Sep. So, if you add up all the issues, the "six weeks" my dealer originally told me when I originally ordered the car turned out to be just a tad longer; as in SEVENTEEN WEEKS. My biggest stress point in all this is that I'm giving my current car to a family member who has been patiently waiting for it since June as that's when I first thought my originally ordered Focus would come in. After the fiasco this has been I called my dealership's manager the other day and said I couldn't wait any longer to give my car to my family member and I wanted a free loaner till the Focus comes in. Well, to his credit, he apologized for everything and said yes, they'd be happy to give me a free loaner. So, they're making a good faith attempt which I appreciated.

having ordered my last 3 cars (from 3 different manufacturers) i will say up front:

1. be prepared to wait
2. never believe the ETA they give you, no one ever meets them.

if you're under any sort of time crunch, even one 6 months out, then look for something on the lot.
