The first time I called I had to give them the order no., Dealer name and location, my name, etc. Then they called me back with the VIN and status.

I did go to the dealer. They said the the car is on it's way, probably will be there tonight or tomorrow. Said they didn't get any deliveries yesterday. Said the car was on a carrier about 50 miles from here. Probably cars for more than one dealer on the truck. Ford Customer Service must of confused dealerships. If I get it in a day or so it will be two weeks from biuld date.
You should get it pretty quick I'm sure. My dealer tracked down the carrier my truck was on and convinced them to come to Austin first. They had it ready for me in about 3 hours once they got it in.

I just received my VIN # today. Checked the window sticker and it has a build date of Jan 4, 2012.

No info on ETIS but that should be updated until after the car is built.

A couple of questions:

1) I've read the ETIS has a build date usually later than the window sticker. Which one is more accurate or correct? What's the difference between the two?

2) How do I find out the ETA of when it will be at the dealer? My dealer said I should have my car mid-Jan but after seeing my build date of Jan 4, I'm having doubts.

My build date on ETIS and my window sticker were identical. The thing actually formatted like a date on the window sticker is actually the date that the factory scheduled it to be built. The true build date can be seen at the top and looks like 120111116 and some other numbers. My build date was 11/16/2011.

I have the same exact build date (ordered Dec 5th) and my ETA is 1/16/12.

How did you find out your ETA?

My dealer told me. Judging from ETA of other people in this thread compared with their build date, I think that the timeframe (sans delays) of the Jan 4th build date to the Jan 16th delivery is pretty doable.

I'm also pretty sure that you can also find out your ETA by calling Ford Fleet Information: 1-800-343-5338 (press 2 and then press 2 again to check order status.)
