That sucks. Waiting is really hard. But it was worth it. I am having fun driving the new Focus.

Built Oct.24 and ETA in North Texas is Nov.8 approx.
Supposedly our Focus is currently on a train in Arizona on it's way here!!!
Does that sound odd to anyone else? Seems like a long and indirect routing.

I think you will see your window sticker soon. I was able to retrieve my window sticker on 10/8, and my car got built on 10/13. Data in ETIS showed up on 10/17. Still waiting on delivery, though. Status in dealer's system has been unchanged from "released from plant" ever since build was completed, even though it shows ETA for this week.
Found out why my Focus is staying at "released from plant" for so long. Ford Customer Service person that participates in these forums told me "A flood at a major U.S. automotive carpet and floor mat manufacturer due to Tropical Storm Lee has resulted in delays for several automakers, and it is affecting the Focus." My guess is that my car is not being shipped until the mats that are part of the Winter Package I ordered can be sent with it. I ordered a Charcoal Black interior. Looks like it will be at least a couple more weeks until I see my car. Certainly been a bad year for natural disasters having a wide impact on manufacturing. Too bad that a built car has to be held up for floor mats, but I can understand the logistical nightmare of shipping incomplete orders and trying to track who is owed what. Delay in a new car is nothing compared to people who lost houses/businesses in the flooding.

I feel you pain..mine has been built for almost a MONTH!! I'd rather them keep the damned winter mats and send my car without them! Lol..prolly looking at somewhere around another 5 weeks by the time the floor mats come in..and the transportation..grrr

I am also feeling the sting of waiting for my built Focus to ship. My Focus was built on 9/30. It is at least good to know why my car is not being shipped, but it would be nice to have some idea of when the car will be shipped.

you guys are making me nervous. I just got my ETA today, but I'm thinking it's going to be waayyyy off considering I got the winter package.
