I went to the dealer today and they said I have to come back tomorrow and someone will be there to help me.
Sounds odd to hear "tomorrow" (i.e. Sunday). Car dealerships are always closed on Sundays here.

I just got back from the dealer and my Mach-Drop is not in WBDO. They are calling Ford tomorrow. I there anyone else here that still is not in WBDO?
Did you get the email from Ford saying your order was confirmed? Ford Corp is supposed to be entering the orders in the system.

My dealer said they got an order number for me (a 4 digit alphanumeric) but had to call Corporate for that number. Not sure if that's true or not, but the order number seems legit. And I did the the email so I'm feeling good. I do with I could see the order online.

If you didn't get the email, here are the instructions for additional assistance:

Please contact Program Headquarters at 1-800-404-4977 or [email protected] for assistance. Program Headquarters is available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern.​

My dealer called me to say he has a grabber blue FE with no name on it and a VIN and build date and my name attached to a Grabber Blue FE with no VIN or build date. He thinks the Mach Drops went through weird and the FE with the build date and no name is mine. All of his other cars have names attached. He said he has been trying to get more info from Ford.

Must be a Colorado thing. They are busy here on Sundays!
Yep. A handful of states still do that. A leftover "Blue Law" from back in the day. But this is one that people decided to leave in place, not because Sunday is a religious "day of rest" anymore, but because people like being able to go to car lots and just look without being acosted by a car salesman. And the dealers tend to like it because they all get a day off without feeling the pressure to have to open because the dealership down the street decides to open.

I have called that number and was disconnected both times.
I emailed and this:

Hello,
Unfortunately we can not assist with the status of Mach-Drop orders. Please reach out to your dealer that finalized the order for additional assistance.
Thank you,

At least I still have my Inf/Blue ordered and confirmed.

funny you said this.. I called twice and both times was disconnected. Seems they don’t even want to deal with us. I can’t believe some of us are chasing a $60k car. Makes me keep shaking my head. If I ever get one, Ford and my dealer will be getting 1 star reviews for this horrible experience.

Well, they didn't call when they said they were going to. I emailed, and they replied...


"Ford's regional manager is researching to see what happened on your Mach E order. As soon as I get more information I will let you know."

...doubtful
