So we all have be pouring over what some of the info on our DORA's mean and "who's on first", "whats on second" and " i don't know's on third"..... I got a lovely call today!! My DORA is a 19... And it was implied that "well 10's get theres first and 19's might be mid year 2033".... turns out that 10 or a 19 doesn't mean spit! Ford called and told me my car will be MADE in the first part of January!!! And that I should be picking my car up by the end of February. Build schedule is CONFIRMED!!!:cool:

As I've said in a different post. Priority is just what the dealership chooses to put in there. Its probably more for if the dealership is ordering multiples of the same type of vehicle. When I finally got my DoRA though my priority went to 2 which I believe only Ford can do. If was stated forever ago that US production would start in January and delivery in spring.

Dealer said the car would be ready mid February, so that's when I expect it. She told me she would provide updates along the way.

ford called you?
or your dealer called you?
either way, hope its legit
It was ford (or so I think). It couldn't be my dealer because it was a 313 area code and my dealer is in a 253 area code. So I don't know where it was from. But, it was a "curtesy call, to up date me on my order" . And I quote, (well the best i can remember from what he said) "Hi this is Bill or Bob from ford. I am calling just to let you know that your car build schedule is set and will be a early January build. It will be one of the first built and we anticipate a late February delivery." "I hope this good news, and thank you for ordering a 2016 ford focus RS" And that was it.?!???

313 was the area code that that guy who won the raffle got his notification from.

Not too sure. I've never heard of corporate calling someone about a car purchase though.

Maybe we'll all get a phone call. That'd be a nice touch.

I'm hoping mine is a later build. We get some nasty snow and salt up here in michiganistan, and I'd rather not have it come home in that junk!

My sales manager called me yesterday and basically said the same thing and that my RS would be within the first round of scheduling. Coincidence much?
