I got my VIN today!! The build date is the week or 4/25, not in a couple of days like he said yesterday, maybe he meant a couple of weeks. Still I am excited and ready to get my new car.

I printed the VIN results from Ford Fleet. The VIN is on Ford ETIS VIN look up, but no vehicle details and no window sticker at reasearchmaniacs.com

I stopped into my dealer today to check out a 2012 in person (I know, I'm so behind) and my sales guy said the same thing. He said that when the auto industry went haywire way back, transport companies went out of business and have yet to recover. After finally seeing the hatch in person, I am even more impatient! Such a pretty car.

Nobody who is being built on 4/25 (which is basically everyone with a Retail Titanium order), was a window sticker yet that I know of. They should apear within the next week or so.

Emerrill, any explanation in to why a 303A SEL hatch with MFT, 17" alloy wheels, and the arctic white seats may be in a material hold or anything? Ordered 1/31 and dealer has zero info. Anything in my order slowing it down? Are the Titanium's higher priority? You seem to be the inside man... =)

...forgot to add that. White Platinum Tricoat, so it isn't an issue with the black.

Not sure. I've heard that they may also be holds on one of the reds (as well as black), but I'm not sure on that.

Other than that, I'm not aware of any holds, but that doesn't mean much. The Titaniums shouldn't be any higher priority.

Well, according to the letter my dealer received (and I read), black and red are not hold material on the focus, but the bigger vehicles with these colors. My black titanium focus has been given a VIN, supporting this claim.
