Enter your VIN in palsapp to get your freight number. Then enter your freight number and it may pull up more than one VIN. Mine seems to be tied to a used F-150.
Mine also had a 2019 F150 on it, I searched the VIN and found that it was sold in Louisiana.
When my car status went to "dispatched", the other vehicle disappeared.

My guess is that they run an antiquated system and have to reuse freight bill numbers as the number range rolls over. There is probably some process that's supposed to archive and/or delete the closed out records from the system that is not being done correctly.

I have an update for my car, and potentially anyone else's who shipped on 2/16:
  • Built 2/8
  • Shipped 2/16
  • KCS Railcar 008291
  • Arrived at KC 3/2
  • No update on Palsapp, still Pending
  • ETA 3/23-3/29, but at this rate looks like it will be earlier.
I also got that free 250kWh charging email. I think most of us are :)

Built 2/2 and shipped 2/16. I'm assuming mine just arrived in KC yesterday as well. I hope they can get our east coast MMEs on a new train quickly and beat that estimate (I'm going on a trip on the 27th and I would love to do it in my new car!).

Most likely just the same as mine. It seems all the 2/16 ones were on one long train.
If you have your railcar number you can find out for sure by calling KCS.

Thanks for the update. My car shipped 2/16 but to date there have been no updates on palsapp. Even though your in the east and I'm WA State, I'm going with we were most likely on the same train out of Mx and we are both in KC finally. Again thank for your info and good luck with your mache, enjoy!!!

Bad news for me, mine shipped Feb 10th and my dealer just checked and mine is stopship and says the location is still in Mexico but marked in transit. So mine may be stuck in purgatory. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

My guess is that yours is with mine in KC, stop-shipped there. Mine travelled on rail car from the plant 2/10, and was offloaded 2/25, then put on hold by Ford. Confirmed with KC Dispatch yesterday (816-452-8235). They need the last 8 of the VIN. And dealer VV yesterday still showed location in MX.

Get the railcar number from your dealer and call KCS customer solutions and ask to track a railcar. They'll probably tell you something. Different.

My vehicle visibility also showed its last update as in Mexico, but that's not up to date.

Welcome to the club. :(

I wish we could all not have joined this particular "exclusive" club.

That is interesting, says a BNSF railcar, but on KC Southern railroad. I don't remember ever seeing a KCS railcar showing. My VV report does not have any history after leaving the factory.

two weeks to KC without any updates is normal. There was a huge weather mess during that transit so I'm not surprised about him not knowing anything regarding its KC arrival. The tracking systems (VV and others) are going to need quite a bit of time to return to their normal state of lag imo.

Now, If I just knew what the heck was up with the stop-ship orders on early to mid February builds ...

So I got the email with the 250 hours yesterday. While I appreciate the gesture (but would prefer a discount or a car), I’m bothered by the lack of specifics. Does it mean additional delays or not? I reached out to my dealer who says he still sees the 3/16-3/23 dates, but the last column of my VV does say stop ship. Also, the last update is from Mexico. Might my car still be there?
