Email from Ford on 4/22 said my 2.7 non-sas BL was scheduled to be built the week of 6/14, and included a link that showed me a VIN and also listed the 6/14 build date. The link now says this: "Your order has been entered into the Ford Ordering System. It will then be scheduled and placed in the first available production week. Once scheduled, a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and estimated build date can be provided."

My link has ALWAYS shown the exact same message you typed above. To get to this screen you had to have entered the VIN (the email link does this for you). Look on the page with the message. On the left you should see Vehicle Details with the VIN. Do you see your VIN? If you do, then you are FINE!

Same, and my build date was only ever in the email, not the crappy tracking page.

Now that you mention it, maybe mine did too and I didn't notice it. And yes, the VIN is still there in the other location, I just needed to view it on a large screen. The only thing missing from before is actual build date, although I just asked my dealer rep, and apparently mine moved from June 14, to the first week of July. Not going to complain, although I did sell my LX470 a couple weeks ago, so this prolongs my time with more drivers than vehicles at my house.

Whew....glad to see this week wind down. If THIS is what all CLEAN-UP weeks are like, I need to take a pill before the next one starts.

Haven't spoken to dealer because I'll see him Tuesday, but checking email all day for a 'bump notice'....or just to see if my reservation got downgraded to a parts-bin Taurus. Thankfully, nada.

Amen brother on the winding down! I too haven't received an email from Ford or Granger, yet! I have a 6/21 build-date. I ordered a VB BB 2.3 Auto Mid MIC Sig Lighting Tube-Step!

Our builds are almost identical except for color - I ordered AMB. I didn't receive an email today, but called my dealer and he confirmed my build date has been pushed from 6/14 to 7/5.

Not delayed, not priority - yet. It's still be too early to call I think.

This may or may not be true and I have no reason to not believe what you are saying. Statistically, this is a good poll as it uses actual. measurable data. It may do nothing more than show that Ford is arbitrary in communicating to affected customers, although I think there is more to it than that.

I tend to put more weight in official Ford communications than hearsay from dealers, many of whom are misinformed and have been wrong time and again.
My build date was moved Friday and no email. My dealer said almost everything is moving right now. The dealer lot was almost completely empty as well. As I have mentioned before, it does not appear the delays are entirely chip related. I live near the Webasto plant and the continue to have major issues. I do not believe they have enough MIC tops yet and it’s not clear when they will have that production line actually working. Ford has taken some pretty drastic action and hopefully it will be resolved soon. It’s seems more likely than not that we will see some additional delays on the early orders. My estimation from the 7. 5 build week I have now, is early September delivery. Your guess may vary.

Out of nowhere tonight, the email came. My June 14 build was pushed 2 weeks to June 28. So much for a July delivery.

Well I made it over a week longer than most that got pushed. Just got the email my 6/7 pushed to 6/28. Dealer confirmed last Friday it had not changed. Oh well.
