Dealer says mine should be here first week of December. If that holds true, that would make it 7 weeks.

I'm so excited I could bite straight through a 2X4.

Do dealers really need that long to prep a car and get their paperwork in order?
Picking up my SEL today at 4:00 pm, about 5 weeks from the time I ordered.

That's pretty quick. I ordered a day after you and I won't see my car until at least next Saturday.

I'm glad some people are getting their cars. Just wish I was one of them! According to my window sticker and ETIS, my car was built 10/13, one day after cutty ORDERED his car, and mine hasn't left the plant yet, and Ford has given ZERO information to me or my dealer about what's going on.

I don't think Ford would like it if one of their suppliers took over 5 weeks to deliver finished products, missed previously given ETA's by weeks, and never provided any communication about what was going on nor offered any revised estimated delivery date. My guess would be Ford would be looking for a different supplier.

Communication and status updates seemed great from order until build, but absolutely NOTHING since then. Ford has some work to do on their order/delivery process, in my opinion.

I hope the product itself is good, because the process to get one certainly is NOT!

If I was paying Ford directly, I'd take delivery of my car and tell them the check's in the mail. If they hadn't received it after 5+ weeks and contacted me to ask about it, I would just tell them it would get there someday. That's how I'm being treated.

You need to contact your regional ford rep or ask the dealer for there reps number and have them find out for you

My car was scheduled to arrive this past Thursday, and had the same build date as Dr. Woo. It arrived this morning at the dealership. Too bad I'm in Minneapolis until Tuesday night. Darn, and typical...
