I ordered my new car 4 weeks ago on Saturday and was told tht I would get a call within two weeks with an update. I called today as not heard anything and he was busy so just called me back now and said he has 'just recieved an email today and was going to call me today' (I called at 4.30pm, likely story) and he says that it now won't be built until June and I will get it in JULY! I was given a delivery date of the end of May, I think this is digsuting and he obvoouisly had no intention of telling me, this is from BENFIELD FORD on KIRKSTALL ROAD in Leeds.

I work at a ford dealership and were quoting end of june to beginning of july on most orders... new ones are as far as 16 weeks now! its scairy the delays but its well known!

infact we have been quoting july for 6-7 weeks so i would have assumed they knew this on ordering the car!!

You could do that.

However, the Dealer cannot control the build time in the Factory!

Alot of people are getting told that their vehicles are being delayed, mainly the Titaniums due to lack of 17" alloys.

Out of interest, which one exactly have you ordered?

And which extras? Extras slow production as well, especially with alot of people ordering Titanium Fiestas.

phone up and complain! i know it won't get your car built faster but you might be able to aqquire some freebies due to his error! at the very least i'd expect a key ring for your trouble :lol:

If you could look on vista for me:

Fiesta Titanium 1.6TiVCT 3door Sea Gray with BodyKit, X pack and Tech pack - Ordered 27th March...



Is there no way that customers can check this "vista" system for themselves?

I cant image he can just look on the system and search for the spec you have ordered, 1000s of people will have the same spec. 100% sure he will need the order number.

I havent been given a build date yet. when you get a date how long does it take to build & then how long does it take to get here from Germany?
I saw a blue fiesta in the local ford dealers on Friday 1st May and it was still there yesterday with a Sold sign and no number plate!
If you wanted to check mine I ordered:
Zetec S in white
quickclear windscreen
side skirts
interior pack 1
Street pack
bluetooth
Ordered on 4th April
Name: Russell Stevenson


Thanks :rolleyes:

if its build date is 15th of may for example! it would be at the dealership mid june. the build dates are updated all the time... mines has a PROJECTED build date of 06/2009 but thats as much as i know... most them ahave the same which means they may be built they may be delayed :(
