I mentioned the confirmation email and got complete silence on the other end of the line. I'm pretty sure something isn't right with my order at this point.

Well let me ask you this, did you sign a buyer's order and did they make a copy of your driver's license?

If the answer to either question is no then you have yet to pre-order

Yes on both. I have a copy of the buyer's order. What happened after I signed it and left the building is the unknown.

Thanks for the reply! I was told the SEL they'll be getting comes with everything the Titanium does so I'd guess it's a 303? I guess I'll know more soon.

Interesting development... I contacted Ford through Ford.com with an inquiry to verify if they had record of my order. They confirmed they did and also contacted someone at the dealership who said that it was MY responsibility to enter my order into the Early Order Enrollment Program using my Buyer's Order info. Damn'd if I know how I'm supposed to do that though. Any ideas?

BTW, thanks for all the responses and help... it's very very nice to be able to inquire these kinds of questions to someone who isn't financially or emotionally involved. My sales guy is definitely getting a bit annoyed with my questioning about making sure it's all done right.

You have to be a dealer to register, so it's your dealers responsibility not yours. It's really simple to do it not sure why he isn't helping.

You and me both... I don't know what else I can do as a customer. I make requests and get reassurances, but no action. Very frustrating, especially since I brought everything to them. I came to them about the car. I busted my ass to convince them that they should want me to buy the car there (I have no particular good reason not to buy somewhere else, even several states away). And I've had to follow up on every little thing, from initiating the pre-order to making sure the order was placed when the order banks opened, to having them register me for the GoPro incentive, to this now. I'm working 100 times harder than they are to keep my business there, and I'm starting to wonder why.

Anyway, I will call them later today about getting registered for the early order program.

Is there anyway to get an estimated delivery time if I provide a VIN number? I placed an order in late April, and was issued a VIN a week or two ago (not sure if I got it right away). Total time has been around 6 weeks, and no delivery date has been scheduled.

Also, is that coupon for the $750 still available for the 2012 Focus? I saw it was necessary to apply several times before receiving it. All I ever got was a brochure, but no coupon (after several attempts). Thanks again for your time!

you can keep trying for the brochure but there is no guarantee you will get one. I can check to see if it is in Ford's system all I need is last name and your zip code.

Unfortunately the only way to track a new vehicle is if it's one of my vehicles so you'd have to check with your dealer that ordered it.

Focus Titanium Hatchback Price and Incentives

imccrea,

I am currently looking at a Focus Titanium Hatchback in Sonic Blue.

The car has the 401a, winter, parking, moon roof, and nav.

MSRP is $27150. What price can I expect to get this car for in the Denver area?

Another car with same color and options plus remote start has MSRP of $27595 at a different dealer. What price can I expect to get that car for?

What incentives would I qualify for? Zip: 80124, Name: Choy

I do currently own a 1997 Ford Mustang GT (original owner).

How do I get a private offer/discount coupon from Ford?

I plan to get this car for my daughter who will be a senior at CU Boulder in the fall.

I am a Costco member and was told the Costco plan for the Focus is invoice - $825.

I do have a 1995 Lexus ES300 that i would like to trade in for this purchase. One Ford dealer told me there is a $750 trade assistance from Ford good until July 2nd.

Thanks for any info you can provide.
