I am on week 11 with no VIN yet... but my dealership is ignoring me right now so I might have one. I can call and e-mail with no response. I have to show up in order to spring them into action. I feel like I am dealing with an ex-girlfriend or something.

Original Order: 5/22/10, Never scheduled.
Canceled by dealer on 8/11/10 (11 weeks).

New Order Placed By dealership: Build Date 8-26-10
Delivered 9-14-10!!!!

I don't get the lack of communication. We try to increase contact and info communication when the news isn't ideal. It usually works out better than letting someone sit, stew, dream up things worse than reality and then blow.

Can they give you the DORA? I never got my DORA, but 11 weeks seems long to get the VIN.

My VIN was available within 4 weeks.

I have a great new story for everyone! My dealer's ordering company (yes my dealer has a company that orders all the vehicles for them), anyway. My dealer's ordering company put a new order in for my identical mustang sometime in July and it has been picked up for Scheduling and it has a VIN. My original order from May still hasn't been scheduled. I am just wondering when my dealer was going to let me in on this. So 11 weeks into my wait I guess I am starting over with a new order... I think. I am too confused now.

Original Order: 5/22/10, Never scheduled.
Canceled by dealer on 8/11/10 (11 weeks).

That ain't right.

Someone forgot to push the right button.

I don't know what the truth is behind it but all I know is it sucks. It may just be part of the "Ford Makes No Sense" scheduling campaign at the Auto Alliance Plant. They have orders from May and earlier but they would rather schedule the most recent orders. I just don't get it.

What's the average wait time to receive your car after ordering, seems like it's at least 2 1/2 months from all my reading...
