War Eagle Posted August 1, 2009 Report Share Posted August 1, 2009 Guys, I wanted to start this thread to help some of the new guys avoid the heartbreak and stress Burning Blue and I went thru. If you intend to place an order for a 2010 or have already you absolutely must verify beyond any doubt that the Dealer has an allocation for your order.Do not take the word of the salesman, get it in writing from the Sales Manager or General Manager. There are virtually no allocations left out there among the Dealers so there is a very good chance you can get burned like I did with an order that is going no where. Some Dealers are taking orders expecting that they will receive allocations at a later date. Do not let them play this game with you. Once your order is placed you should have a VIN # in less than a week. Your build date should be around three weeks from the date the VIN # was issued. Your car should be delivered in about six weeks. If you have already placed an order and have heard nothing in over a week your Dealer may not have an allocation and you will never get your car. You need to immediately go to the General Manager of the Dealership and confirm they have a current allocation and determine why no VIN # has been received. If the Dealer has no allocation cancel the order and find a Dealer that does or buy one from a Dealer that already has one in stock. I ordered a car back on 5/29 but the Dealer did not have an allocation but did not tell me for 5 weeks. I finally got an allocation by going to Ford Corporate and received a personal allocation for my car on 7/16. My VIN # was issued that same day. The build date is 8/3, delivery will be 8/23. Guys, there simply is no mystery or difficulty in ordering a 2010 if....... you order it from a Dealer that has an allocation for your order. With an allocation the process goes very fast and the cars get to you in less than 8 weeks. You will also receive regular updates and progress reports. Those of you that are having problems do not have an allocation for your order. I hope this helps clear the air for some of you that are currently in limbo. Good Luck, Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
