How do you find this out?
I have one on order and the garage tells me they only have a delivery date (16th April - Hope mine doesn't get pushed out too).
I have mentioned that people on forums have build dates, and they say that they cannot get that information.

i work for a ford main dealer and they check it on VISTA, dont ask me what they need becuase i havent got a clue. technically its not a build date it called "gate release" but generally they are released the same day they are built

Probably due to Easter.

As for "has anyone else experienced build date delays" - that'll be 80% of this forum!!!

Your dealer can tell you 2 dates.

1 the estimated Production Date
2 The ETA to dealer week ending date

When we order cars these dates are put on Vista for us. We have not experienced any delays so far. What Extras did you put on the car

Mine is just a 10.5MY Titanium with Ink Blue paint - no extras (only wanted USB which the 10.5MY has as standard)

Have asked the dealer to supply the Vista details...
I think it was the dealer ETA that is this week... so could be any day now if it has not been delayed.

The more extras you put on the car the higher the chance of it to be delayed unfortunatly, The dealer can speak to Ford Ordering though and ask what has delayed the build. If its something small they could let you know or if its because they have a back order on leather for example they will have to wait till it in stock. 2 Months ago Ford ran out of standard radios for the Ford Focus (I could not beleave it myself) To try sort out the problem they built some Focus with a SONY Radio free of charge to help with builds until the standard radios came into stock

Hmmm my fiesta titanium 1.6VCT with dress pack and tech pack is due to be delivered on the 24th and still haven't heard from my dealer yet. All they told me was that some cars had been delayed from march and he would look into it let me know by the weekend (last weekend that was), i've still heard nothing so i think i'd better phone tomorrow. My dealer has been terrible....

Just been informed of the "delay" by my dealer this morning.

"build has been pushed back (yours is not the only one, and all are Fiesta).
site delivery: 29/05/2010
build date: 12/05/2010. "

This may put me outside the scrappage window, which means I have to find another £2000 :-(... or cancel the order.

Is it the actual build date, or the ship date from the factory? I expect there's only one ship a week or something.
Mine is from GK in Chesterfield (via dealdrivers).
It's a long drive from near Portsmouth... but it was the only place I could find doing a scrappage deal on the 10.5MY models... which may now be unimportant!
My local Hendy said it wasn't possible.

:-)

I've heard that in this forum (and elsewhere)... but I work just about opposite their site... so they are very local!
They looked after me pretty well when I was doing test drives, and choosing specs etc.... just couldn't deliver the deal I was after. I haven't had any other dealings with them (yet).
