    Take it to carmax and get an offer from them. If it is good, then take that back to the dealer and use it for neg or just take the carmax offer. If it is bad, your no worse off.

    I have heard showing interest in other vehicles at carmax and remaining "on the fence" about trading or selling at carmax can improve their appraisal.

    Our dealer offered over $1000 more than CarMax but we did it to have a bargaining "tool" if needed.

    This is what I did with my trade in.

    Dealer offered me $3000 less than Carmax, then came up $1000. When I mentioned the Carmax offer, he said sometimes they will match it, and sometimes they won't.

    They did end up matching the Carmax offer.

    The Ford inventory website shows my Explorer "Available in stock".

    Just talked to my saleman, he said it is still in So VA, so guess I will not get it this week.

    Dealer has been fantastic - so has Seni. Funny thing is, a buddy of mine and I ordered our Ex's the same day from the same dealer. Per the preview report, his will schedule for a build date tomorrow, but mine will wait until next week to be scheduled. Just my luck!

    Oh, well - I have just begun seeing more around town lately, so I'm beginning to get a bit more anxious for the arrival date!!

    Dealer was notified that it was on Ramp 06 on 4/21, then left on transport at 11:45AM 4/25. Arrived at dealer at 9:00PM 4/26. Picked up at 7:00PM 4/27. Chicago to Baltimore in 32hrs.

    Rory from Ford customer service and her crew really did a great job tracking down the vehicle and moving it along after Seni put them on to our dilemma.

    Rory called me to let me the vehicle was at the dealer before the dealer even knew the vehicle had been delivered to them.

    Still got the $1000 rebate, even though it ended 2 days ago.

    My wife is still outside sitting in it and calling all her friends using the SYNC system. Hope that battery is high capacity.

    I haven't heard anything about mine either. Maybe next week is best anyway. I have plans this weekend and would have to fit in a pick up of the truck plus I don't want them to rush the prep of the truck, DVD players, etc.

    I'm going to make sure they upgrade the sync to 2.8. My father has been trying to get his upgraded from them and they claim the latest they have is 2.4 so I expect this to be an issue of connecting them with the Ford sync guys to get the upgrade done.

    My black weathertech mats are in though. I REALLY like them. They aren't as rigid as they appear online which is good, I didn't want something that wasn't "grippy" at all.

    so, you're saying there's a chance...

    What did you have to do to get it moving and delivered that quickly? I was expecting at least a week for delivery.

    The dealer had a lot of Explorers that were built and waiting to be shipped to them. A full truck did arrive at the dealer from the same plant.

    Maybe Ford decided to ship using a transport since all were going to the same dealer?

    Strange that our vehicle had 39 miles on it when the other Explorers that came off the truck had 2 miles each.

    I asked them to update sync to 2.8. Greg said his radio guy was not in, and they would have to schedule an appointment to do it later. He called me back an hour later and said his radio guy would be in, and pushed my pick up back to later in the day, so they can do the update.

    Did not say anything about not having 2.8 available.

    We will see, as I am not sure if he knows what versions are available.

    Wow, so yours is on the lot? I might need to shoot him an email :)

    He might not know about the sync update version. I'll be interested to hear if you get the latest.

    Edit: Just after writing this I looked at my email and had one from him saying "The long wait for one of my customers is finally over. Hopefully yours will be over soon."

    Guess that answers my question. Might still be on the train, just not on the truck I hope :)
