For those of you waiting on delivery, here's a great article from April 2011 that gives glaring praise for the new Focus:

Look back like one page (or quoted at the top of this page) and just ignore everything I said about build date.

Well I received word from natasha today...

"Your Focus is finishing production now. The ETA is estimated as Sep-05-2011, which is subject to change."

I Love the subject to change.. I already know that date most likely wont ever happen if it does that would be 8 weeks exactly from order... Now it's just cross my fingers I don't get the lemon......

You will love this . . Ford of Canada has sent out the satisfaction survey that should follow the arrival of your vehicle. Satisfaction rating to Ford Canada - Unsatisfactory
It is 17 weeks and my vehicle is still in USA . . it has now gone from Maryland to Minnesota
This is an unreal experience!!!

Lololol. I would have immediately called up FCS and told them they sent you that and you hadn't even received the car and you're extremely unhappy. Maybe they'd hook you up with an accessory or something. :)

I've had 2 good calls with FCS and they've been really helpful.

Have faith friend. After my build I got the same message from Natasha (with a different delivery date obviously). Being cynical (as a lot of us on this forum are) I'm thinking NO WAY is it going to get on a train, get delivered here, get on a truck, and make to the dealer in that time frame. Lo and behold the dealership called a day before the ETA and said it was there, come in and have a look tonight, give us a day for doll-up and paperwork preparation and come and take it the next day.

It arrived a day early, I checked it out, and I drove off on the the actual ETA (next day).

Mine was exactly 7 weeks and 4 days until delivery, 7 weeks and 5 days until driving away so you are in a totally realistic time frame. Here is hoping for you....

Mine was "built" today, and has a same ETA and similar travel distance, unfortunately in the opposite direction.

Well I drove by my dealership tonight and spotted a Focus out front, which was weird because they haven't had any Focuses for a while. So I stopped to check it out and turns out it's mine! Got here way faster than I expected!

Heres my timeline:
Ordered: July 18
VIN: Aug 4
Build: Aug 11
At Dealer: Aug 23

Hopefully I can take delivery in the next couple of days!
