Hi There, don't often start new threads but i'm impatient so here goes. Ive had lots of fiesta's over the last few years. Currently on a "12" Fiesta Zetec S, my local ford dealer confirmed my order for a new fiesta st on Tuesday 4th June. Now I know the st takes longer to arrive and it all depends if the dealer has the car you want or how far away it is but I just wanted to know people's experience and how long they had to wait to get their new ford after agreeing it with the dealer.
Kind Regards To All.

There are a few threads on the boards with regards to new cars and timeframes to order, dealers tend to quote 4 - 6 weeks, however I know that there has previously been some trouble in factories, and so I would suggest double whatever you are told as more of a precaution.

 

What did your dealer say?

well on the day that I ordered he said it could be 12-14 weeks. but called up today and admin said the build date for it is next month so if I'm lucky I could have in in august, if not very early in September. Maybe my expectations are too high but it does seem like quite a long time to wait for a car to be built?!  :wacko: Maybe i'm just too impatient! I've never had to wait for a fiesta to be built before, so normally sitting in it within a couple of weeks or ordering....I'm bored of waiting already... :(

Nor good mate but as I say they had issues in the factory (mondeo specifically but I believe the focus is built there too) so they are running in delay

haha! being a big gamer myself I know what you mean! Been at far to many midnight releases of games to even count. However this wait for the ST is KILLING ME!!! And ive only been waiting nearly a month so far, so ive at least got 4-6 weeks wait left...best case scenario :unsure:

My dealer called me today and said that all going to plan, I should be taking delivery of my ST on 14/08/2013. Having placed the order with Ford on 04/06/2013 my maths tells me that's 11 weeks from order to delivery!! Still too long in my opinion though!!  :unsure: It better be worth it!! :P

Ok, so despite the fact I have already ordered my ST from my local dealer and have just got to wait until the end of the month, I got really impatient and booked another test drive at a ford dealership 10 miles away for this afternoon  :) It's sad I know though I feel a bit harsh as some salesman there is going to think he is getting a sale out of me today....Have I sinned? :P​
