    2018 LE Order to VIN time?

    2018 Future Owners: How long did it take you guys from ordering your car from the dealer and getting a VIN? I ordered mine (and paid the deposit) though a dealer in CA 3 weeks ago, and have not received a VIN. I am worried that the dealer may not have a allocation when they thought that they would. Thanks

    Ordered mine 6/29. Dealer confirmed allocation about a month later when Ford scheduled the build. Was told it was sent to plant on 8/16. VIN didn't show up in the dealers system until 9/6. Last date in the ETIS system is 9/2 and hasn't changed so I'm hoping I'm on the first ship over.

    Anyway, it can take a while. I contacted my dealer once a week to check in. Quick text and he would check the status.

    I ordered mine on 7/10 and was selected for scheduling a little over a week later. I got the VIN from my dealer on 8/14, but he had been away for a few days so it might have come through before then. I'd say he got it sometime the first week of August.
