Thanks for the advice. I tried that vin on etis, and it came up as a 7/4/11 production date. No other info provided, so I'm not sure what that vin is either.

I have no idea on that time frame. I'll check it again the middle and end of this week.

Etis doesn't seem to work right until sometime after a car is built (I drove a car at a dealer that still didn't have a valid entry).

Window stickers seem to show up around a week before build, but I'm less sure on that.

Thanks for the info. I'll just try it every evening to see if it will pop up.

The sticker isnt generated yet, but he said by wednesday it should be up. It does show up in the fleet information, so it is correct :)

Got my VIN :April 11,2011

and its a sedan, titanium, moonroof, leather, myford touch.


Hope everyone else hears something soon :)

I @replied Ford Customer Service on Twitter last night, and they just asked for my VIN so they can check the status of my car. I'll be sure to post their response here. I'm quite impressed with Ford's use of Twitter as a customer service tool. Top-notch!

Thank you for the help! Now I just have to figure out why it is silver. That was the color I originally ordered on 2/20/11, but switched to kona blue the next day. I wonder if 2 separate orders were scheduled for me, or the color was never officially changed.

Same here. Ford rep said it's in production, but there's no ETA when it'll run down the line. I'm not worried. Soon enough it'll come.
