Have a friend waiting on delivery of her 2011 GT500. She ordered in April, it was built July 12th, but the latest info from Ford is:

 

Thank you for your Dealers Ask Ford inquiry. This vehicle is currently on

quality hold at Autoalliance International Inc, MI. We cannot advise as to

when the hold will be lifted or when the unit can be shipped, as we are not

provided with that information.

 

The note from the dealer said latest status shows "returned to plant".

 

Anyone know what the hold up might be?

Sounds like it failed quality inspection and was returned to the factory to be fixed. I would be glad they caught it before you had to rely on the dealer to fix it.

It might be worse than that! It may have been damaged in some way and is being sent in for repair.

I woiuld not worry too much about this. Ford won't release it unless its 100%, The same sort of thing happened with my '11. I belive the car leaves the plant to get its stripes, then returns so that it can again be moved for shipping. It may just be that. Mine was on QC hold too but like I said, nothing will leave the plant unless it meets all their specs and standards. My SVT PP equiped car was worth the wait.
