Mine shows that it was loaded with V2.4 on 2/25/2011.

I guess this means I am not any closer to receiving my Explorer.....

How are you not going crazy!?!? Again, if I was told from the beginning the wait was 12 weeks, I'd be more content. I'm just irritated that everyone I talk to has no idea why my car is sitting there. Yours has been there even longer!!!

Now I'm not feeling so bad...sorry. I can't believe you've been waiting that long...has anyone told you why? I just have a bad feeling our car is going to fall into that "black hole" and it's going to be August and I'll still be wondering where it is!

At what point does the dealer or someone at Ford Customer Service...or SOMEONE re-order the car...or something?

I played the waiting game too. Mine was built 2/24, and ordered in December. I just found out it arrived today -- 4months after order! But, three weeks ago I bought a new Durango because I could no longer tolerate the lack of information and "awaiting shipping" status for weeks on end. After driving it to Utah for skiing and back to So. Cal., and seeing it's capability in the middle of several hours of heavy falling snow, I have zero regrets and zero issues.

Probably sitting right next to mine, same dates except I ordered Jan 14. Stopped by my dealer Monday to sign some paperwork to lock in the $1000 rebate, he had his manager call Ford who came out and told me some song and dance about Ford signing a contract with a union carrier but GM had not and was blocking shipments, yadayada, whatever just another story. Back to waiting now, my only concern was those rebates, and I am fine driving my current vehicle until it comes in. Hoping to get it sometime during 2011.

With the vehicle having the MTF v2.4, I don't see receiveing it anytime soon.

Hey all!

As you may have figured out, I was away on Wednesday and returned yesterday. I have been working hard to get through all of your emails and will continue to do so today. Thank you in advance for your patience. :)

'11 Ex XLT Kona Blue
Ordered 1/28, built 3/29, sync 3/30. called today & my kona blue XLT is "in transit", with a delivery period of 4/8-4/15.

Update on mine...never left Chicago, was never "in transit".
Continues to say same delivery window, no update since 3/31.

Also..no change on my sync, still shows 2.7, so it hasn't been pulled for any upgrade.

EDIT: called CRC & they tell me that my XLT is in Norfolk, VA.
Of course they gave me an ETA of today...unless that puppy sprouts wings, that ain't happening! LOL
At least it appears to be on the move.

Still awaiting shipment with an ETA of 3/26. I've been out shopping for something else this weekend but there's not much that really catches my eye.

My dealer did call me Thursday and basically said they can't get any information from Ford on when the vehicle may ship and that I should probably start looking for other alternatives if I have to have a vehicle soon, not very encouraging.

just ordered!

Wow!! I just ordered 4/6 waiting to get my window sticker or vin i guess is the first thing to hear. I was told 6-8 weeks but now im scared ill be waiting forever. Hopefully im lucky. Seems like ford would have some sort of tracking system like UPS that is accurate. O well we will see what happens.
