If it's shipping it's coming as fast as it can. Stay optimistic, in transit is better than sitting in MI, or MIA somewhere else. My car was built 8/16 and is still being produced as far as I'm aware.

My dealer says its usually less than a week at this point and that I should come in again early next week and he will call his distribution center down in Deleware to see if it can be expedited because he obviously wants to get it in by the end of the month.

My dealer (who is kinda a prankster and who I know from before he started working for Ford) just Commented on my profile pictur on Facebook (a focus) and said "too bad your car won't be here until October because the Park Assist is on commodity control! Lol lol"

Previously he had said it would be here mid-September. Do you think he's just pulling my leg????

I'm surprised you didn't go for Nav. They have the same car you ordered + Nav at midtown ford. Was saving 700$ worth the 6-8 wait?


How long did it take Etis to update to the correct build date for all of you?

I know! I saw it there on Thursday. It didn't have parking tech and had upgraded rims so meh.

Plus...I really should be saving more anyway. Every 2 weeks that goes by I put aside another $500 towards the down payment so it's a mixed blessing!

Plus...there isn't really a need for Nav if you live in Winnipeg! I already have my iPhone for Nav and even have a garmin nuvi already for road trips.

There's no rims on it, it has parking...
http://www.inventory.ford.com/servic...00&modelid=226

I lost out on money, not being able to trade in my old car anymore. I have put a bit more aside, but im still losing like 500 on that trade, and spending more on gas running a truck in the mean time.

I knew about that one too, but I didn't want the luxury package. the extra $1500 is of no value to me. I also don't want a car that was used for test drives unless I get compensation for it.
