Spent the weekend in Albany, New York.

2012 Focus's all over the place. They must have a direct factory connection.

I'm starting to see quite a few around Buffalo. Of course none of them are as sweet as mine.

I see a ton of them around me, kinda near Boston. There is a ford dealer right down the street from my work, which could explain it. I think most i see are sedans.

My last time I said how many I saw was about a month ago it was 3, now im up to a whopping 4. Still not many around me. Oh and they've all been hatchbacks. I must have ordered the only sedan in the Toronto area...lol

I've only seen a handful around here. I have a 20mi commute to school and have seen a nice Yellow Blaze hatchback there, Ft. Pierce area for anyone in FL.

Also have seen an Ingot Silver around town driving the same road at the same time everytime I've been in the same vicinity, coming from I95.

Another once on my way back from Ft. Pierce on US1, and it had a federal tag on it.

Only a couple local... an SGM hatch, and a Frosted Glass hatch.

I'm in Vero Beach, btw in case any floridians are around.

I see around 4 a day here in St. John's. Half are hatches and half are sedan. No dominance over the other, which means hatches are bouncing back. :)

I'm less than 50 miles from Albany and I've seen one in the last month, in Vermont. Placed an order on a blue candy SEL hatch on 8/11 and have yet to receive a VIN.

There is so far one other '12 FF in Millinocket, an SE sedan owned by an elderly couple. We were admiring each other's cars the other day.

I'll venture to say that Ford maybe directing these cars to where the jobs are? I too am in the People's Republic of Massachusetts and see a lot more of them around here than when I was in Maine a couple of weeks ago (high unemployment there). Just would make sense to do it this way?

It makes sense for blind orders from the dealer hoping to sell them off the lot, but why should it make a difference on custom factory orders? They should take care of people with money in their hands first. Five weeks tomorrow since the Dora was posted and still no VIN. I like to support American companies, but my patience is nearing it's end. If I don't see some action soon from FoMoCo I may cancel my order and buy the Elentra that I could drive away today.

Did you ever think that the dealership you ordered from does not have any allocation, or because this is such a popular vehicle, orders may be backed up? There could be a shortage of parts, vendors can't keep up with demand or the factory is filling orders for certain trim levels at one time. I waited 9 weeks to get mine when I ordered in March and I saw a bunch of S's and SE coupes and hatches on lots before I received my VIN. Calling Ford isn't going to speed up the delivery of your car. You say your patience is nearing its end, seems to me you have very little patience. You also say you like to support American companies, that's great, so do I, but if you feel comfortable buying a Hyundai, go for it. American assembly workers will pay taxes on their salaries, it's only the profits that will leave America.

I was in Ogunquit ME last week sitting on a roof top bar watching the world go by on route 1 and was amazed at the number of 12 Foci that went by.

Granted not as many as I see south east of Boston where I live but still more than what I expected to see.

I am outside Philly this week for work and I don't recall seeing any.
