This is for the individuals that have ordered vehicles that are NOT built...and are facing another production delay. Have any of you considered cancelling your order for your car? I placed my order in mid-March and am now looking at a delivery sometime in June...maybe.

Even when chips do become available...I would think that their most profitable vehicles (F150's) will be get whatever is available first....I get no communication from Ford either.

The other problem will be for those that plan on financing their purchase and have to wait an additional 8, 10 weeks or longer....what do they do if car loan rates go to 3, 4, or 5 percent or higher....what does that look like for some folks on a monthly payment.

Ford is saying they expect this supply chain issue is going to cost between $1B and $2.5B in earnings (per the Detroit News)...

No getting a custom built car is certainly worth the wait. Especially in my case with a warrantied supercharger kit installed.

I read that the plant will shuffle orders around and prioritize customer ordered cars over dealer stock so there shouldn't be much added delay.

Last I read was that the plant is closed this week and next week.....
Yes - public info on Ford shows Flat Rock closed for 3 weeks (1 week, then extended by 2 more). We're in week #2 of that.

To the OP - while I don't want a slip in my date, in the grand scheme of things it won't matter. But I would prefer that it was here tomorrow.

Just FYI for current time frames.

I got an email from Ford saying mine is scheduled for production week of July 19. Order was submitted on April 14.

Order date 3/16....original build date 4/23. Just going to have to wait and see. I’d be surprised if it actually gets built in May.
