Seems to be lack of communication from production.



Hope yours gets shipped shortly after built! Maybe you'll have yours before mine!
Maybe they will be on the same train :)

NICE CAR! Each day you will get more and more comfortable with it. I was like that the first few times I drove mine (this is my first manual transmission vehicle) but now it is almost second nature.

I noticed that people seem to always know the status of their cars transport on here. Where are you finding this out? dealership? the 1800 number?

Thanks. I'm getting better. On my 6 mile roundtrip drive to go running this morning I only stalled once, and on my way to work I stalled once again. The way back tonight (at 10pm) it was smooth sailing. Slightly embarrassing, but much better than the drive home from the dealer last night.

I am so ready to drop the automatic and get into a manual transmission car again. 355 bhp is - get ready for it - BORING in 25-35 mph zones, which is my entire work commute and about 70% of my driving.

I want my damn Focus already!
