Hi Guys...

Back in Aug i ordered my car a Fiesta Zetec S it was built on the 7/10/11 Ive spoke to the dealer who has given me an estimated delivery of the 10th Nov (giving a total from order to delivery 10 weeks and 1 day) I was told when i ordered 6 weeks and the car would be here!) Now they can't tell me if the car has even left the factory yet? He just tells me its enroute to the dealers i'm sick of waiting now! Any ideas how to know if the car has left the factory yet? I know its built cos i have the VIN number and checked on ETIS hope someone has some ideas lol

Cheers

I asked him on friday if the car had left the factory and he just said its "it's in-transit to us" Not very clear as that could mean many things :( I don't like keep nagging them cos they make you feel as if ya pestering...

When I ordered my car last August it was already built and in a UK compound. I found it amazing that in this day & age the dealer claimed there was no tracking information available. They did not know when it was loaded on to a transporter or when it would arrive. They only knew when the lorry turned up and looked what was loaded on the back of it!

If I can order a cheap electronic item from China and it's tracked at every depot where it's scanned how is a £13k car not the same?!

I know its crazy!BMW and Skoda allow you to track it from order to turning up at the garage clearly Ford is still in the stone age lol

Well today i checked on Etis again and to my surprise the build date has changed from the 7/10/11 to 17/10/11 got on the phone to the dealer who just said it sometimes happens and that my car has left the factory and could turn up any day now but still couldnt really explain why the day had changed :S So just a waiting game really :(
