how do you know your confirmation date? I ordered mine 28th March and still no build or delivery date.

Can it be checked online or anything?

I'm shocked! Ordered mine (5-door Titanium, 1.6 petrol, Sea Grey) same day as the OP - 31 January - and I've just learned that the build date is 15 May. :ph34r:


WHAT WHAT WHAT?? You have a build date? I dont even have that :( and 15th May??? Dealer, even though I have no build date say should get end of this month start of next? My confirmation says est 15th may DELIVERY of car, but still insist should get a couple weeks before that?

hummmm, now a lil worried :(

I got my build date about a month after ordering and took another 3 weeks after being built to be delivered. It doesnt say anywhere, the dealer will tell you or you have to ask, it only shows on their system about a week before its due.

I find AutoGlym Ultra Deep Shine is very good on black paintwork. It removes most of the swirl marks and brings the paint out in a great mirror finish. I'll admit its a right !Removed! to apply but the results are stunning


Thanks i might just do that

I know... it's crazy!!!
The worst thing is that a couple of weeks before my "due" date I was told there was a delay and that it would be delayed by a week which was fine - that cannot be helped. A week before the car was due I was told that the car hadn't even been built yet and the tyre issue being the reason why...

Needless to say i'm not too happy about it!!! The dealer (Evans Halshaw in Stourbridge) have not been very helpful and didn't return calls/answer messages to give me an update about the situation and are not prepared to compensate for the inconvienience. Asked if the alloys could be upgraded to the 17"s/the car be delivered on steel wheels and the alloys fitted as a dealer fit (I even offered to provide the tyres if it was so difficult!) to no avail.

The day they told me that the car hadn't been built - convieniently - they had a vision blue zetec s coming in which the "owner" cancelled it but obviously this wasn't the car I wanted and I would loose out on the extras the Titanium has. I didn't want a car I didn't order just for the hell of it! ;)

wealdman - What has your dealer told you about the delay with yours?


Why not ring Ford Customer Services and tell them your problems. Go above the dealer, as they sound incompetent.

I had to ring the dealer to find out any information. I thought I would have got something official from them saying congrats on your purchase and giving me details about what I had ordered. I called them 2 weeks after purchase and thats when he told me that the build date was the 24th April (nearly 7 weeks after ordering). I've now changed some things on it so it might be even longer to wait. Delivery to the dealers was supposed to be week of the 9th May so i'm looking to have my car mid May. Hopefully at least by the end of May before I go on hols! :lol:
