After talking with Ford Customer Service, it sounds like Ford still shows an ETA of 8/29 and so they are increasing the priority on the car. Has anyone faced a similar issue where the ETA is over two weeks past due?
If it happened during transit it's definitely not routine. I hope no one else is having that problem too, you got me paranoid now.

I would imagine there's no change in the ETA because it's already left the plant, so they've "done their part" to reach the ETA and under normal circumstances it would have been there on time or a few days late. Right now the primary focus would be getting your car moving again instead of trying to guess when that will happen and contacting FCS to update their computers with the new ETA.

When my ETA had come and gone they bumped it back 2-3 weeks the very next day.

Best of luck getting your situation resolved quickly.

Update! At 2 in the morning today...my rail car hit the halfway point! There isn't much in the rest of the trip. Minneapolis and maybe Fargo/Grand Forks...not sure if it would pass through those last 2.

Congrats on the new car! I ordered one with those exact specs on August 3, just 2 days after you. I still don't have my VIN or anything. Dealer can't explain to me why or why not. Let me know what you think of it! I'm getting anxious!

BTW, some of you may remember my L-O-N-G story of ordering the car and how I finally said to the dealer (as I was giving my current ride to a family member who could no longer wait) that I wanted a free loaner till the car came in. The manager said he'd be happy to do so and since Friday of last week I've been driving an '08 Taurus (actually not a bad car for a big, on a relative scale, 4-door; white, tan leather, clean, 47K miles on it, 3.5 liter 263HP V6).

Well, looks like the ETIS shows yesterday's date for my build date now too so this looks promising (but feeling guilty because of those who are saying they're not even getting a VIN after so many weeks)!

-Ordered: Aug. 31
-Received VIN: Sept. 1 (+1)
-Window Sticker: Sept. 6 (+6)
-Build Date (from Sticker and ETIS): Sept. 13 (+13)

How do you get this information as to where your car is now in the delivery process? Mine was built 9/8 and the Delivery ETA is 9/26.

Thanks -
