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 :)
Yes, mine arrived this morning.

Should pick it up this afternoon, as soon as the 2.8 update is installed (hopefully). We will see if they actually install it.

I know early in the week Greg said he was tracking another one that was in WV. He mentioned that it was a little bit behind mine.

Sounds like this was probably yours. Hopefully, it will show up tomorrow, or, early next week for you.

hehe...he is probably going to have a pretty good month with the two of ours coming in. Wonder if he has more sold he is waiting on.

I finally got my explorer last week. I love it. Unfortunately, with only 500 miles on it it’s in the shop with transmission problems. It took 4 months to get, and I drove it for a week. Now I’m stuck driving a crappy loaner car. Hope they don’t have it for long.

So where are the pics! :bounce:
So far, i have been to busy trying to learn everything.

Been very happy with sync. I was a little worried.

Maybe 2.8 has solved a lot of the issues. Still early, though.

Let us know when yours finally arrives.

What's Your Status

I thought it would be nice to see a list, all in one place of everyone's status. Who has their car, who's still waiting, etc. I'm hoping I'll get a little bit of encouragement by seeing that many people actually did get their car because I'm starting to feel like we'd get our car quicker if we "re-order." So, here's our status...

Status: Awaiting Shipment

I have family coming in on May 3rd. Looks like we'll be cramming everyone into our two cars. My wife says the dealer has promised us a Flex as a loaner. I'll believe it when I see it. I thought we ordered far enough out to have the Explorer by the time my family arrived.

When you talk about updating the sync, does that mean that everytime there's an update to sync that you have to have the Ford dealership do it? I'm far away from getting my Explorer, but I really don't understand the sync update problem. A person with a vehicle that has sync cannot update it themselves?

Grrrr....So my sales guy sent me an email that he had a truck with 8 explorers coming in tonight and was pretty convinced that mine must be one of them (as was I based on tracking). He got the list of VINS at 5pm that would be on the truck and found out mine wasn't one of them :(


There is a theory that maybe some other sales guys made nice with the transport driver and got them to load ones that should have waited a couple of days on the truck first :mad:

Not a huge deal, was gonna be rushed with weekend plans anyway and it is only a couple of more days to wait. I think my sales guy was more upset than I am
