2012 EX Limited on Order
I just found my window sticker online. Where do you find the build date on the window sticker?

Look at the top line of the first page, left hand side. I have:

CHI-001258 VA 120110815 5916.

The important bit is the "12110815". The bit in bold is your build date. Which means they're building my car tomorrow :) :) :)

Spengracin,
I’m glad I’m able to research that info and keep you in the loop with your latest status! I also think this is a great thread for staying sane while counting the days until your Explorer arrives. :D

My Ex, built on 8/11, is supposedly "in transit", as of today, with an ETA of this week...Hopefully that is the truth!


Anyone else with a build date of last week have any info?

My dealer e-mailed on Sat saying mine is about two weeks out but it wasn't built until the 15th. I'm not sure if that is correct information or not. I guess it's possible to get one from the factory too VA.

Cory what would be cool in today's tech. Ford production snaps a pic of your ordered car/ truck coming off the line completed.

PnJ,
That would be a great idea for a www.TheFordStory.com submission. :) A snapshot like that would be an awesome background for your computer until you could take pics of your own! :D

For everyone else patiently waiting for the latest details on your order, sight tight and check in if you’d like. :)

My EX's birthday was yesterday! It's the only thing I know of that's born before it's delivered. :D

8/17 - Window Sticker (actual showed up today!!!)
8/23 - Build Date (actual on Window Sticker)...
twentygb, I checked into why that would happen and found sometimes there are plant constraint issues that can push back a build date. :)

...Cory, thank you very much for looking up my order status and providing the VIN number for me!...
dmikulin,
You’re welcome! I’ll do anything I can to help you stay in the loop as your order moves along! :D

Happy birthday to your Explorer, Spengracin. :) It’s only a matter of time before it starts making it way to the dealer.

Cory

Thanks Cory. I figured it had to be something like that.

You've definitely made this process much more bearable. I would like to commend you, your team and Ford for responding to your customers through a forum like this.

Great job!
