Status update:
ordered 1/28
Built 3/29
Sync 2.7 3/30

as of today I am told it is in Norfolk VA, with an ETA of today.
However, I am not in VA..I'm about 14 hours north in CT!
UPDATE***Called CRC today(4/11)....my truck was never in Norfolk VA...nope it's been sitting in Buffalo NY---on the NORFOLK Southern Railway.
Is it so hard to read a computer?
I am still waiting for Jamie(on FB) to confirm this & give me some idea how long it will sit there. My dealer just says, "I don't know".
<sigh>

What makes you think the railroads have computers that show where any of their railcars are? :)

A lot of that is still done by calling someone on the radio and telling them roughly where the railcar is and them writing on a log sheet.

LOL NO I meant the Ford CSR..she read the computer & said "Your truck is in Norfolk, VA"....and it wasn't, it was on NORFOLK Southern Railways..it is sitting in Buffalo(or not).

According to CRC today my ETA is now 4/14-4/21(week of) & they can't tell me if it's in Buffalo or not, or even if it ever was on the rail car....but Friday & yesterday they could. Hmmm.....

At least a lot of you have cars moving. My ETA went from 3/21 to 3/30 and it hasn't changed and my car isn't moving.

Kinda frustrating that the Ford Customer service doesnt answer their phones for two days now and dont return messages. My lease isending in less than two weeks and car is supposedly still in Chicago. Plus i have friends who ordered the exact same car two weeks after me and just got them delivered (3/16 build date vs 3/21). Suposedly my vehicle is on a quality hold.

Bought a inbound Limited two weeks ago that was built on 3/10. Still no word. Looks like it is still sitting in Chicago.

Not sure how long I will wait, until I start looking at other vehicles. The stories I have been hearing are not encouraging.

Oh lucky you!!! Ford says mine is sitting in Buffalo...and they have said this since last week. Still saying 4/14 as ETA.
I asked my dealer & he just says "I don't know", or "I'll ask Anthony(GSM)" and then never calls me back.

Top left. Look for 120110412. Throw out the 1. 2011 is the year. 04/12 is the build date
You should be able to sync with it in a day or two.
