Got my car!

I finally got my car! Car arrived at dealer first day of the revised ETA timeframe. I took delivery yesterday. Too dark to get decent pics. I'll post a pic as soon as I can get a good one.

Finally. I had to call Ford customer service to get any information on my order. I placed the order with the dealer on Nov 16. I finally received a VIN and an ETA of Jan 2, 2012 from Ford Customer service. Of course, the current rebates expire on Jan 3. If the car is late I'm at the mercy of what ever Ford has going at that time as far as incentives. Another local dealer has two of the same model optioned as I want my car on the lot (according to their web site). Should I wait or go to the other dealer? Any idea on what incentives Ford will be offering in January?

How long does it take to download a Window Sticker after getting a VIN? When I run mine I get a "The VIN entered was not found in our system." message.

Thanks.

Actually, if the car has a vin and has entered production, you dealer can start the paperwork and submit the incentive forms to Ford, before the car actually arrives on the lot. This might be you best bet if you want to lock in the current incentives.

Usually you can pull up your window sticker about 6-8 days before the car's scheduled to be built.

How do you find out where a car is in transit?

I called the 1-800 number I posted a few posts back and they told me where it was. My dealer also knew it was in Texas when I spoke with him today so they should be able to tell you. Also, the FordCustomerService user (Natasha) can provide information to you as well if you ask.
