My dealer put my factory order in on Thursday, August 4th and said he would give me the Order # when they got it...does it usually take this long for Ford to feed back the Order #???

um. you get the order number right when they enter the order into the system. ask for your DORA (dealer order receipt acknowledgment). when your dealership puts your dealer into ford's computer system and ford accepts it, it's in. ford acknowledges your order, as is, with your options, at a given price.

now, some dealerships only do actual entry on a certain day of the week (my dealership, wednesdays). so if you order on a thursday you might have to wait until the following wednesday. but not more than one week.

call your dealer, ask him for a copy of your DORA. if he can't give it to you by now, go find another dealer. he hasn't entered your system, they are lazy, and they are jerking you around.

The order number is actually the number the dealer generates for you. Once the order has been placed, you should get a copy of the order with the order number, the dealer code and the priority.. (Ford pulls dealer orders on Thursday night) The next step is the DORA which is Ford accepts the order, after the order is accepted, the next step is a VIN is issued for the order. After the VIN is issued, the next step is a build date. Once a build date is assigned, approximately seven days (our experience) prior to the build date the Monroney (window sticker) is available. Approximately two business days after your car has been built ETIS (European ford website) will show the completion date of your car. The next step is in transit, this is a blackhole, it could be one day or any number of days until your vehicle ships. Natasha aka FordCustomerService is a member here and will help guide you through the process with weekly updates as to what is happening to your order. Just send a PM to FordCustomerService.

Good luck and welcome to the "order process"!!!!

Hi fellow Winnipegger!
Any more updates on your factory order? I made a deal on the Aug 8th for mine and I went to the dealership today and they told me mine should arrive on the week of Sept 12th.
