Now That i have my tear tag, how do i track what happens next? do i start checking the rail car hack? or the convoy hack?
it has no bed liner and zero upgrades at all, window stickers says convoy on it, but I'm seeing conflicting stories about how it will get transported.. blend date was 7/16, and it needs to go to central Washington state. i really wish a guy could just pick them up in detriot and save themselves $1800
I also wish I could just fly to Detroit and drive it home, but can you imagine the logistics nightmare of owners coming to the Rouge to pickup their vehicle. Hold on sir, we have to move 85 trucks to get to yours in row 190,, LOL

There should be a large dealership in Detroit that offers this kind of service for a tiny markup. The would need an enormous back lot to stage orders form all over the country and Canada of people just wanting to pick it up themselves.

I bought my Mustang GT in 2019 from the dealership across the street from the plant. I was in the plant and watched it get built from painted frame to rolling off the end and I still had to wait two weeks for it to get delivered to the dealership just across the street. They don’t just drive them there as ridiculous as it may seem.

Has anyone with a 7-11 build week seen anything happen on any front since they got their tear tag populate? Also, wondering if an email from Ford.com comes before, immediate, or after the status "built" happens on the reservation tracker page.

I don’t think things have stabilized enough to know for sure. Some earlier build weeks got to “built” and then sat waiting on delivery for months with no updates. Others have reported getting a call from dealerships that the truck is there before they get the built email or delivery estimate email from Ford.

My blend date was 7/14. The order tracker at shop.ford.com shows in production 7/15 which is when the tear tag appeared. I've heard nothing from Ford since then.

What do you mean by "shows in production 7/15" If you had a build week of 7/11 then your tracker should look like this:

What do you mean by "shows in production 7/15" If you had a build week of 7/11 then your tracker should look like this:
Go to either of these sites with your VIN & 4-character order code (found on dealer order sheet or window sticker)
Ford Vehicle Order Tracking-USA
Ford Vehicle Order Tracking-Canada

Here you will see the detail dates for IN PRODUCTION and BUILT,
There are no detailed dates for SHIPPED OR FINAL PREP, but you will see the narrative above the time bar state these conditions

US trucks can find extra information on the Canadian site vs the US site, the ETA will appear when the truck is shipped.

I hope you are right. I'd like to lock in an interest rate for a loan shortly but the lock is only good for 30 days. The Fed is raising rates again today.

You might miss the lock window if it ships late, but you could be lucky, might as well pull that trigger now instead of tomorrow

if you miss the lock window, it just means a 2nd hard inquiry on your credit report right?
