      I thought mine was on hold still, but it left the rail station and is making its way toward FL. Apparently rail shipping is slow and not necessarily a direct route to destination. Probably another 4 days to get to the dealer but I was thrilled today to find out it was not still on indefinite hold. Cory has been great keeping me updated through this entire process.

      Ah, I get it now, Joe Dirt! I’m keeping a close eye on that one. :)

      FordMomof3,

      I’m glad you didn’t do any midnight driving. If you did, don’t tell us. ;)

      You’re very welcome, LinaMay7! :thumbsup:

      You got it, RB; I’ll send you a reply when I can. :D

      ScoopFl,

      Your kind words are going to make my ego burst at the seams!

      Picked up yesterday!

      Picked up my 2013 EXP LTD 4x4 yesterday. Nice ride, gonna take a while to learn all the technology but it'll be fun. Delivery was just about exactly 7 weeks from date of order. Not too shabby.

      Glad yours are moving

      I'm happy that some of you are getting your Explorers. Mine is still sitting in Chicago on hold since being built on 3/29. No one knows or is willing to share what seems to be the problem or status. Enjoy your vehicles.
      RB

      I KNOW retpsy!! I waited 14 weeks and some odd days...and the next person posting has theirs in 5-6 weeks AND they all come from the same plant!! So what makes one build/arrive faster then the next...its not the distance to destination from plant cuz I have noticed TX AZ FL IL WI MN SD and all rec'd theirs at different times!! Would be nice to know the mystery...HOPE YOURS GETS IN TRANSIT SOON!! :scratch:

      I went and seen my "Miss Sassy" yesterday afternoon and she is GREAT!! Started her up and paired my iPhone with her AND can't wait to bring her home on MONDAY!! My dealership has the shop check her all out to make sure all is good...:D

      It has arrived!!!

      I called Ford Customer Service to see if there was any news about my wife's Explorer's hold status. "Nothing new - no updated ETA". Ten minutes after hanging up with CS, my dealer called with the news that our Explorer had arrived. We're picking it up this evening. Makes you wonder about Ford tracking doesn't it? So, all those waiting - keep the faith. It will come when you least expect it..
      Ordered: 2/29
      Built: 3/29
      ETA: 4/2
      ETA: 4/4
      Actual delivery:4/18

      FordMomof3,

      LOL Good; if you change your mind, warn me so I can cover my ears and go “lalalalala.” ;)

      Rainmaker, LinaMay7, & retpsy,

      Congratulations! We can’t wait for pictures! :D:thumbsup:

      I took delivery of my Tuxedo Black LTD Tuesday night. Ordered 1/13, production 3/21, delivered 4/17. It is beautiful and I love it, which is saying a lot since I traded in a Lexus GX470.

      Now I'm enjoying figuring out all the bells and whistles. The BLIS and cross traffic alert are pretty cool and very helpful given there are some blind spots. I had to try out the park assist, that was both scary and amazing (mostly amazing).

      Thanks to Cory and all the people who have posted on this forum. Your information and moral support helped a lot!

      That sure is quick! I waited almost that long after mine was built. But it seems like things are moving very smoothly now that '13 has been in production a couple months. I'll take pics when the skies clear here and get the Ex cleaned up. So far extremely pleased!
