which one are you getting
Just getting the limited with upgrade package 301A.
That shouldn't take long. The only real SUV they have I believe is the Navigator. The others, except for the cars, are more like crossovers. I had a leased 2014 MKT that the dealer bought back and is shipping it to the States. Has less than 8k miles on it. I would have wanted to check out the 2017 MKX but things happened so quickly when the dealer called that I am now in a 2017 Platinum. Love it.
I still fail to,understand how a vehicle can be "brought out" for shipping for a week and still not have a shipping date.
The guy that updates shipping is on vacation.
Thanks Lewis. Lol
See post 6 re shipping.
So I found out what is happening with my Explorer!!! My dealer ordered hundred or so of the police interceptors that were recalled before they shipped. Now they are fixed and slowly coming in and he says that my Explorer is probably in a batch to be shipped with these vehicles. He said his orders are always pushed to the back and he told Ford that. So The po po got me befor I even get it on the road! Lol
Hi all. I ordered a 2017 Sport and just received my DORA (status ta the top says **Internet Submitted**. the tracking website doesn't show my order, and my DORA only shows a partial VIN. I assume it will just take a few days for the order to be viewable online using the Order#/Dealer/Last Name search... is this typical?
Just saying Welcome to the Forum James.
I've never gone through that procedure but I'm sure another member will jump in and provide the info you are looking for.
Still waiting on mine. 10 weeks
10 weeks waiting to be able to view it online!? Or 10 weeks and still not delivered?
I was told to expect delivery between late February and Early March. Kind of ambiguous, but I'm hoping on the earlier side. I just want to be able to track it in the system online for now.
Until delivery. But still waiting. Five days from Kentuckyto Mississippi! Not even in Louisiana as of yesterday. Still has to be picked up by trucking company and sent to dealer for prep which takes another day.
Well I hope you get it soon. I'm hoping being in the Metro Detroit area they can truck mine here a little faster!
Mine took about a month between the dealer placing the order, and it showing in the COTUS tool with a full VIN. I'm told that is typical.
Ordered on Nov 15th, build is scheduled to start Jan 6th, and delivery is estimated as Jan 26th. I expect getting it across the border adds a few days.
Orders aren't "swept" into Ford's system until tonight. So probably Monday or Tuesday before it shows.
Thanks for the responses everyone... Seems like I just need to learn to be patient. That's not something that comes easy to me!
Hmmmmm, dealer must not have the allotment. Mine was ordered on Nov. 14, built on dec 13th.
I think it's likely they build them in batches (colour, options, Canadian spec? Etc) and you were slotted into an earlier batch.
It's unlikely that they simply build them to order first-in-first-out.
Order placed at dealership: 12/30/16
Order Acknowledged by Ford via DORA: 1/2/17
VIN received, listed as "In Order Processing" per cotusb.ford.com (No Build Date): 1/13/17
Hopefully I will get a build date soon and be able to check out the window sticker
Looks like things are moving along. The Window Sticker is usually posted 3-4 days prior to the actual build. I'm guessing that may be towards the latter part of February.
