Hello

I noticed how the production delay thread was starting to fill up with this information. Since so many members have not received their pre-orders for ST2's and ST1's I thought we would start right off and have members track their ST3 process in this thread.

Simply keep us up-to-date with:

  • Your Scheduled Date
  • Your build date
  • Your ETA to dealer
  • Actual arrival.
This way we can see and be on top of where each other cars are at. I would like to see for myself how others are doing with their ST3's because I believe I have a strong chance of buying one in 5-6 weeks from now.

Thanks

Chad

*Went to plant to see car get built on 10/6. Didn't happen. Based on the numbers it looks like it won't get built untill 10/8.

UPDATE: Unbelievable!!! Car arrived at dealer today (10/8). Next day shipping. LOL. It looks to me like Ford is doing everything they can to prioritize ST3's. I'm picking it up tomorrow.

Order Approval Date: September 20th (placed at dealer 2 days prior)
First Build date (from dealer): week of October 22
Second build date (from FP): week of October 15
Actual build date: TBD
ETA to Dealer: TBD
Arrival date: TBD

Now as I said in the other thread- the dealer had an ST2 allocated for this october build- when ST3 production hold was lifted, I asked if he could change the order and he did so successfully.

Here's to hoping the 15th build date holds :)

Special note:
My car was one of the ones that got pulled off the line for "additional quality checks" and accumulated about 72 miles and a cowl full of Michigan autumn leaves, which explains the 2 week delay in shipping it out from the factory.
