    Things are looking up on the steering wheel front!  My car, waiting for a wheel since 2/18, was is now showing as "Released for Shipment" on 3/16.  Steering Wheel Purgatory does have an end !

    It's good for a few laughs if nothing else.  My wife was telling it to our mechanic when she was in his shop a few weeks ago, and he was just dumbfounded.  Then there was this conversation I had with my salesman yesterday after he called Ford after realizing we were 2 weeks past the latest delivery date that he had been told:
    SM: "Hey, how are you doing?" Me: "Living the dream. And yourself?" SM: "Me too. Hey, we saw your car was well past the estimated delivery date, and called Ford to find out why. You won't believe this." Me: "What, that it's sitting in a parking lot at Flat Rock without a steering wheel?" SM: "You knew?" Me: "Yeah. Came off the line on 2/18 and has been parked for a month." SM: "Um, yeah. Seems there was a part supply issue" Me: "Yup. Strike in Mexico resulted in them shutting down the line for 3 weeks, then making 8000 cars without wheels." SM: "How many??" Me: "8000. That's going to take a while to fix. Could be weeks. Could be months." SM: "Uh, yeah. The regional rep says they should have it 'worked out' by April 5, but that might just be the supply issue." Me: "Yeah. Who knows?" SM: "Well, you said you didn't want it while there was snow on the ground." Me: "Absolutely. April would work for me." As long as I had him off guard, I got him to agree to get me a hard copy of the brochure to keep along with the car.

    The 2/14 "In Production" tag with no "Awaiting Shipment" noted means your car was caught up in the 8000 Mustangs produced without steering wheels (as was mine).  That "days to delivery" number is quite questionable.  As an example, my car shows "In Production 2/18" and an estimated delivery date of 2/28.  The online tracker dutifully counted down to 1 day on 2/27, stayed at 1 day on 2/28, and has since started counting up, now showing 16 days (i.e. the number of days between 2/28 and now).  The system clearly isn't equipped  to handle exceptions, and I'm surprised whoever programmed it didn't take into consideration the boundary cases where it hasn't' shown up by when it's supposed to.  My tracker is shown below.
    There's been no real info as to how soon the cars without wheels will be upfit and shipped.  A regional rep told my salesman that he's heard that everything will be "worked out" by April 5.  I take that date with a grain of salt, as it would seem to imply that nearly 300 cars / day can be corrected and run back into the process.
    Still, it should get worked out some day.  And, hey, maybe your car will be one of the early ones fixed.  Then again, both yours and mine have been sitting in a lot a Flat Rock for a month, so sometimes cynicism can take over.

    Welcome to the forum!  What is the holdup on your Mustang?  My very first Mustang is the one I own now, a 2011 Race Red Premium GT that I ordered in April 2010. I absolutely love this machine!!! I finally broke 20,000 miles on it late last year.  Looking forward to your pics.

    Wow, and I thought I'd been waiting a long time. Has the dealer given you any update on the status of your order? Before you know it, we'll be into the next model year. 🙄

    Yes, Flat Rock is losing a shift. They delayed it 2 weeks because of the part shortage

    The White GT (301A, Automatic, Black Accent Package, Active Valve Performance Exhaust, Navigation) arrived from the Twin Oaks, PA ramp and was delivered via United Road yesterday morning. It was prepped and detailed after I left the office yesterday and was inside the service department waiting for me early this morning and is now in Demo service. The photos don't do the car justice!
