Their either building them like crazy (which is not outside the realm of possibility considering that they're being built in Germany), or they've been stockpiling them and they're finally leaving the holding pens.

On another note, I just received a call from a dealership about an hour north of me, and he just said that he had a note that told him to call me. He had no idea why. Anyway, I told him I wanted to test drive a 2012 focus, to which he responded that they should be getting them within the next two-three months! This is a completely different time frame that I was given by a dealership about 15 minutes south of me. They told me two-three weeks, not months.

The confusion goes on....

Spoke to my salesman today. Apparently they ordered a twin of my car since there is no rhyme or reason to the order in which they are built and they wanted to get it in as soon as possible. It's built and in transit and should be in next week or the week after. So my guess is that unless your dealer ordered a twin, preorders won't be in until at least mid-April.

Again, I'm looking for the middle towards the end of April. Will be happy if sooner but not going to lose any sleep over it right now.

Did anyone else receive and email from Ford for their pre-order? I ordered mine on Feb. 6th and last week I got an email from the company thanking me for the order, but still dont have a VIN or an ETA.

No email, but didn't give it to the dealer. Got a Focus coffee mug in the mail, though.

My dealer did the same thing. Very cool of them.

this new focus blows the others out of the water hands down, except for rear seat space haha. There is one thing I want to know from people ordering Focii, are you getting the dual clutch units or manuals?

I dont mean to rag on such a great new car, but I am hearing a lot of bad stuff about both the drivability and the short term durability of these new autos in the fiesta, and even in some magazine testing of the focus. At least one in four reviews on edmunds of the fiesta complained about failing dual clutch units, as well as chattering/burning clutches and replacements in under 6 months of ownership....any thoughts? (on the upside, I havent read a single negative review about the dealer experience in replacing these units)
