    Thread for people who haven't gotten their Mach-E's yet to be grumpy in

    I'm only day 47 of predicted 196-day wait, so I've not earned a right to be grumpy, like so many who suffered through 2021MY ordering. At this stage of my "wait and as I try to get information from the entries in this forum's database, I realize how incomplete and lagged it is. However, in the...

    ⏱ Mach-E Scheduling Next Week (1/17) For Build Weeks 2/28 Through 3/28

    What was the deposit amount required for each? ("My dealer" required $1500 on my order. Now I'm asking them if I can order a second MME on the same deposit since it's 3 times the deposit required at another nearby dealer. I'm looking for insight to dealer practices and ethics.)

    Dealers are Ford customers, not you.

    Yep, two unrelated issues there. I did inquire again with "my dealer" if the low priority assigned by them had changed. They said they have no control over the priority 19 assigned to my order. (I've also asked why $1500 deposit when other nearby Ford dealers have $500 deposit requirement.)...

    No updates on 2021 Mach E Orders @Ford

    As I understand it, "Build date" and VIN assignment marks the beginning of the production saga. When a particular MME is "complete" is entirely something else, usually coming weeks later, followed by the transit period, getting from the assembly plant to the destination on the "delivery date"...

    VINs for 2022MY MME entered into this forum database, as of 1-13-22 arranged chronologically by order date. For whatever reason, it appears that build week of Jan 24 2022, VON serial jumped 10000. Perhaps a month code?

    No updates on 2021 Mach E Orders @Ford

    For what it's worth, no 2021MY MME are waiting to be given a build date or a VIN. Ford stopped building 2021MY and are now building 2022MY. I searched the small database on this forum looking only at entries with 2022MY VIN and most were ordered as 2021MY but converted to 2022MY...

    From the database of this thread, I looked at all the entries that had a VIN assigned; as of 17 Jan 2022. There are only 49 participants who have entered a VIN. I arranged them chronologically by "estimated build date". 42 of these are 2021 orders that were converted to 2022MY and are now...

    Orange County. Around 5 Ford dealers around 10 miles or less. Selected one based on "happenstance". As someone who has never owned a Ford or known a Ford Dealer, Ford salesman, or Ford neighbor I've not thought much about x-plan. About dealer behavior, I'm thinking "virtue untested is no...

    Dealers are Ford customers, not you.

    Thanks for the reply. My dealer hasn't yet responded on their listing of 23 MME that are not on the lot. I was not astute enough to do any meaningful research into dealers before I ordered. Now I'm seeing difficulty in changing dealers if problems arise. (I should also say, at this point, I...

    I'm too early in the game to have a rant. No experience with Ford, or dealers, or ordering a car. The only leverage I've got is money if ethics don't count.

    Dealers are Ford customers, not you.

    So, you think they're all likely spoken for unless a refusal comes up. Is the dealer not obligated to honor the MSRP/dealer price of the original buyer? I was hoping Ford was going to make dealers shape up and not dirty the brand. haha

    Dealers are Ford customers, not you.

    I'm looking for information about the role of dealers in Ford's allocation system. (Me: day 40 of 196-day predicted wait). I realize I am very naive about Ford, dealers, and custom orders. I was looking at "my dealer" online inventory. No MME were on the lot, but 23 are listed. 15-2021MY are...

    Upcoming Mach-E Livestream: 1/19 @ 9PM EST – covering feature highlights, how-to and walk-arounds

    On Jan 19, I'll only be day 41 of predicted 196-day wait, I'll look for this in replay on YouTube or a link on Ford.com. Without taking notes, I'll never remember things. Will that be okay? I'll still be looking for de-mystification of Ford's ordering and manufacturing processes to help deal...

    Before you go... Was that wall plug, visible by the MME charger port, installed for this purpose? give details and incentives, if so, okay? Hopefully, you won't be back here looking for recall information and the like. haha Maybe just to boast about good mileage and joy of e-driving.

    Just ordered my Mach-E...now what?

    Haha, thanks. Perhaps you should also read elsewhere when I have tried to explain for myself one of the many puzzles of the MME acquisition process and guessed all wrong (expiration of Fed tax credit and use of existing 30 amp dryer circuit). Thanks to the many on this forum who write accurate...
