No mate,  2 week delivery shutdown over xmas  / new year,  other than that i never got an explanation.  Customer care people just kept saying it takes 21 weeks to deliver a car, when i said most got them within 10 weeks they just shrugged it off.  Was annoyed at the time but the car was worth the wait.

 

It looks stuning in white with 17" alloys and tinted glass, sounds great and drives brilliantly.  I dont think there is a better car out there for the money.   Although i sometimes wish i spent another 2k and brought the ST, but I'm more than happy with the ZS.

That's shocking.  Even fords own website details roughly a 10-12 week wait for standard spec orders.  For upgraded alloys and a window tint, that shouldn't warrant that amount of extra time.

Do car factories shut down for Easter?

Easter is only a couple of days (Friday/Monday).  I imagine the Xmas shutdown would've been for a week at least.

I read that cologne are now producing 110 more a day since putting an extra shift on in Jan.

Haven't even been waiting a week yet and I'm impatient

Can I ask where you saw that info?  Admittedly, I've only been waiting a couple of weeks but the lack of info I'm getting from my PCH company is whats leading me to look at other ways of obtaining said info.

Looks like output will be increased in march, should help us out.

My current Citroen is due MOT in may, fingers crossed I get it in time

Ah, looks like that extra output is effective as of next month based on that article.  All good news though!

Finally got my build date.  Looks like the 11th March.  A (very) slim chance that I'll get it for the start of April in that case.

And you placed the order 13th of February? Let's hope for delivery early April!

I placed my order 14th of January. It has no confirmed build date yet. I'm from Denmark, but as far as I know, they're produced the same place.

I placed my order 14th of January. It has no confirmed build date yet. I'm from Denmark, but as far as I know, they're produced the same place.

I'd like to think early part of April for delivery, I'll even collect it if the supplying dealer is relatively close!

 

I'm a little shocked that your order on the 14th Jan hasn't even had a build date as yet.  Did you place the order through a Ford dealership?

Yes, I ordered through a Ford dealer. I'm not sure how being from Denmark factors in.

What does the dealer say when you press them for info?  An order date should at least be allocated within a week or two of the order I would have thought.  Even if that date was pretty far off, they should at least have one!

It might have something to do with left hand drive and right hand drive in my case. Ecoboost125, end of March production or delivery? I asked the dealer and they contacted Ford Denmark. They said 15 March, but that it wasn't confirmed at all.
