    Is the Ford delivery estimate accurate?

    My car has a delivery estimate of January 4-10th. Should I really expect it between those dates, or are the dates usually inaccurate?

    Thanks.

    Cool. @FordService uses the last day in the date range, so it makes sense that it arrived a few days early if the date range is correct. I'm wondering if cars held up in the Modcenter still had accurate delivery estimates or not I guess. It sounds like your car had no issues coming off the boat. I'm hoping my car is issue free as well!

    I came in on the Asian King. My original date range was 12/28-1/3, but now that I've cleared the Mod Center (@Portyard), my new range is 1/3-1/9. Like several others on the same boat, I'm hoping it arrives early!

    Mine also came in 4 days early based on the original estimate of 1/1-1/3. Seems like they're processing them quicker through the Port Huemene mod center.

    Did you ever get any info when the car got loaded on a truck? My delivery date changed to Jan 1-7 (from Jan 4-10), so I guess mine could arrive any day. The updates from Buddha show it's still at Hueneme, but I don't know if that's accurate.

    Mine went from Dec 7 to "pending update", then Dec 15, then Dec 23, then "pending update", then it showed up at my dealer on Dec 29. I was at the Modcenter 7 weeks.

    No. I happened to check with both Ford and my dealer and they didn't get any updates. Just one day my dealer sent me a text saying the date in the computer was obviously wrong because my car had already arrived and was ready for pick up. Surprised him too!

    Good luck with the delivery! I'm planning to get mine this Friday!

    Is the delivery estimate meant to indicate when the train will arrive at the station, or when I should expect to take delivery of the car?
