On May 26th I inquired on facebook about the status of my car. They said I was 'In Transit'. I have tried Facebook, this forum, and calling ford service. All they seem to tell me is that I'm in Transit with no ETA. Is there someone who could tell me if I am on a boat? Is there no update on Ford's end until it hits the states?

My window sticker finally became available this morning. Hopefully it means I'm on the Zenith Leader.

Is it common for there to be delays in Ford's system?

For the cars being shipped on NYK lines, Ford's system takes a while to update. In fact, cars on ZL didn't show up in Fords system until June 6th.

FordService won't tell you what ship you are on (for security reasons), but they'll probably tell you if you are on a ship.

Great. Also, do you know if there a reason I was told to check statuses on Thursdays?

The best way to find out is to email your VIN to your dealer (so they can cut and paste) and ask them to look up status for you - and ask them if they can specifically check "secondary status". This will show if you are on a ship and the name of the ship. Armed with the name of the ship, you can easily go look up the ships's schedule.

Additionally if you listen to "I'm on a Boat" by Lonely Island maybe it will give you some tips or hints.

was mentioned in the window sticker thread that your sticker is only available when the car is on terra firma (off the boat).
so it would seem your wait is nearing an end.

but if window stickers are not tied to disembarking the boat, all bets are off

A few people in the ZL thread mentioned that windows stickers for their cars started appearing today. The window sticker for my car appeared today as well, despite being on ZL for another 12 days.

There are examples of in-transit VIN numbers appearing with windowstickers before the boat had arrived at Hueneme. The Zenith Leader appears to have the same situation.
