Mile 17. Big rock into the windshield from a passing F-150 on the highway, normal driving conditions.

Cold temp caused additional cracking! I recommend having those window repair kits on hand! I'll be fixing it at lunch today.
That is a bummer. I'm at 350 and safe so far, but I can't say I haven't been worried about it.

Yes. It was at the time of the sale. I told them it wasn't on Vincent, but was on the DORA. I don't know what Vincent is, but I had heard that term on this forum. I had a signed DORA. They applied it immediately.
Just to confirm, the DORA is the printout that shows all options selected and has the order number, priority code, etc right?

I would check with Ford chat. It's HIGHLY unlikely to be on chip hold. Someone else was told this by their dealer. Ford chat set him right. Turns out it was just waiting on a rail to MT.
Yea maybe he misread, or just assumed it was on chip hold. The second time I did ford chat just after reaching out to my salesman I asked the person on chat to confirm that it is complete, not on a chip hold, and just awaiting shipment, and he confirmed that is correct. Do people on chip holds show built and have EDDs? My vehicle shows built in both trackers and ford chat, and has an EDD of 4/18-4/21. The EDD has pushed back bit by bit from 4/10, but I’m assuming that’s shipping and not chip related

My understanding from prior week builds (mostly the January holds) is that chip hold vehicles still show as in production.

Can anyone shed light on this? Ford says they see a plant hold on mine but also sees it in Transit. It has been unloaded and placed on a ramp at the Norfolk Auto Distribution Facility. How can there be a plant hold when it's not at the plant. 4.16 - 4.22 delivery window now. Did they find an issue with it or is it just taking the yard forever to prep it for delivery? Ford also said it could be ready for delivery and the hold was never removed. There access to information is limited which blows my mind.

If I had to guess, I would say that there is no factory hold on it at this point.

Yea I wasn't sure if plant meant Ford Plant or Norfolk Plant. I would like to think they are just taking a while prepping even though it's been on a ramp a week ago today.

If it left Wayne, MI on a railcar, there is no longer a plant hold. The railcar itself can go on hold status. That’s standard if they find something wrong with the railcar while in transit. If your Bronco has been offloaded from the railcar then the railcar needs some pretty substantial work like new wheels or something.

Rail has come and gone. I wonder if they are seeing status of the rail car after it has already been unloaded and headed back. That would be a hoot!

Oh, sorry, wasn’t keeping up with the full chain of events. When was it delivered to the rail yard? It’s probably just waiting on a truck like mine. Mine was offloaded 4/12. Hoping for a truck this week!

Yeah, mine got offloaded at the rail yard in Nashville TN on 4/8 and now im just waiting on a transport truck. This is my estimated delivery week, so my fingers are crossed. Good luck to everyone this week.

I'm a little confused. Are you saying that it's at the destination rail yard close to your dealership? Then absolutely it's not on any hold from Ford and not any chip hold. It's also not being prepped. It's simply just waiting on a convoy truck to your dealer.
