BTW, I heard this recently from Ron Heiser:
"due to some Forum commentary and feed back from some of our California dealers starting with first week of April production we are now sending the front license plate bracket not attached to the vehicle and with no pre-drilled holes in the bumper cover. "

The conjugation of interest is present tense, third person - “he goes”, “she goes”. The conjugation of ir for that tense is va. No of course is no, so “No va” would mean “(he or she) is not going”. Nova.
I get it (and speak Spanish fluently). The story is apocryphal, is all. The single word "nova" means the same thing in Spanish as it does in English.

Now, for bonus points, why wouldn’t you sell a Ford Pinto in Brazil? 😀😀😀
And I work with enough Brazilians to know not to say it on this forum! The Mexican-Spanish equivalent is similarly spelt: pito. ;)

I speak Spanish ... badly 😀😀😀
I lived in São Paolo as a young teenager for a few years. I did not do very well in my Portuguese classes, but I had no problem getting around on my own and I managed to pick up a couple of “colorful” expressions.
Since I learned Spanish in schools in the US and only used it in more formal business settings in Spain, I never picked up any “colorful” Spanish words (well, maybe one 😀)

Ford, if you're reading this, I'm ready for that offer to replace my existing pre-drilled bumper with an unblemished one.

I believe he was referring to the super-secret one that Ford sent the link to in the OTA. It’s where all the Kool Kids hang out now 😀😀😀
Sort of like Clubhouse for Mustang Mach E 😀😀😀

I'm sorry but I have to respond. I do not think "totally unacceptable" is any kind of threat. I do not believe that there is any industry, job, etc... where any of us could slip our customer's delivery by 44 days and never contact the customer? I can't believe that any CEO of any company would say that was acceptable? People might have a lease. Have to sell their car before. This is not a small purchase and people depend on their vehicles. So I stand by my comment that Ford has not done a good job communicating. I'm not threatening them in any way, make demands. I'm just stating that I can't believe that Ford thinks this behavior is acceptable:) I understand slips. It happens in all industries and with all product deliveries. Staying silent is not good customer service.
I agree. I had an earlier reservation but didn’t place an order until 2.21. I figured I gave myself plenty of time before my lease is up in August. Well, I don’t have a build date yet when I see a lot of feb and march orders and even some April receiving June build dates. My dealer tells me not to be concerned. Hmmm
