Correct, I placed my order Sep 3 and my car was built and ready to ship Oct 28. Then it sat waited until Dec 23 before it was eventually allocated to a railcar and then finally arrived in Calgary this week.

Congratulations! I placed mine Dec 11. I’m in Regina. Dealership told me that the production date will be on Jan 22.  Did you track it from the assembly plant until it arrived to the dealership? It took you 5 months to wait? Wow! That’s a long wait.

I did track it as much as i could, information is limited to us Canadians. I found that I got better/more detailed info from this forum.

Maybe that was the wrong terminology - I've seen cases where someone had a printout showing a stock priority but maybe they hadn't actually submitted the order yet in the system.  Point was that may not be the actual priority currently in the system so go back and check to be safe.   And it's certainly possible they don't know how to do retail orders correctly.

 

This is what happened after talking to the dealership. The submitted order was put in as Retail with Priority Code 10. They sent me a picture of it so I'm good. I sure wish they would have told me that. Thanks for the replies.

I just contacted the dealership but it seems that my build date was move to feb 26 from jan 22. That was a month from the original build date. I don’t know why. Dealership did promise to get the car by 2nd or 3rd week of feb but I think that is not gonna happen now. If I can just cancel my order and get my deposit I would then get a car from other dealership. Disappointed. Anyways, enjoy your new car though.

It's probably due to a commodity issue. It's not unusual, especially with Mustangs for whatever reason. Your dealer should be able to find out why.
