"Anytime..."

Actually, Ford ETIS states it was built Feb 15th 2011.

Yeah, because of the MFT problem, they had to hold all the MFT equipped cars they have built. The bigger problem is that once they have the fix, they have to go and repair thousands of cars, which will take some time. This is why Ford wasn't scheduling Retail orders - because they didn't want people to have to wait for additional months AFTER the fix is found.

My dealer called me back this morning with a Vin. He said he did find out there was a hold on the all Titatiums and MFT but that has now been lifted. He'll call back ASAP when he gets an ETA on it.

Perhaps ya'll can help me out. This is my first new car. But I'm still not sure what all the fuss is about a VIN. I too have a 2012 ordered, but would rather have the car. I guess to me it's like not having the calendar up that counts down until Christmas Day, and instead just let the time needed go by. Seems to go a little faster that way.

But that's just me.

NEWMISSION, When you get a Vin. for your car you then know it's close to production. Plus, once you have this number you can start looking for a loan and also for your insurance company.
