I’m going to order a Maverick so I can wait forever for 2 different Fords.
Make sure to get the Lariat, AWD, 2.0L engine, and power moonroof. Maybe end of '22 delivery? With like 8 different Build Week dates along the way? Maybe 'in production' then 'production hold' with no explanation? All that fun stuff...

I checked a particular local Subaru dealer's site today. The same dealer had about 10-12 Crosstrek a few of each trim level basically. That was may be month and a half ago. Today they have none. Damn. There goes my Crosstrek as a backup plan.

Well time to pick up some Birkenstocks, a puppy and some patchouli oil. I've got my eye on a Low miles used Subaru Crosstrek. Probably add some BKG KO2's on 15" wheels to make it suck less and unload it once I can get into a badlands. Just confirmed that my badlands is waiting on chips until the end of October. Who knows maybe I'll like it?

How much do you want to be it gets build the day I buy something else?

The way things work out, I'd say the chance is high.

I have an Outer Banks on order and likely to be delayed. May I ask why you're selling?
If I remember correctly I have seen on another post Steven said he works for a dealer

Starting to look around for my backup choices... Things aren't as bad as with Ford but are going downhill with other brands as well. I get a feeling that if I continue to wait another month+ until my July 19th build things will get considerably worse inventory wise. And if Ford delays again, which is a 50/50 shot at this point, then I'm really screwed. From what I read Q3 is gonna be the bottom of the chip shortages so I suspect my gut is correct. Decisions, decisions.

I drove by a couple of local Ford dealers yesterday and one had none on their lot and the other one listed 3 on their website, but we saw 5, two of them maybe orders waiting for the buyers?

I am in the same boat.

Hate to say it, I know some are angry at Ford...it's not Ford. It's global stupid...every dealer feeling the same problem.

Yeah, it's definitely not Ford as the root cause of the issue. And I don't blame them cause blaming ain't gonna resolve anything.

Having said that... :) where I think Ford did drop the ball is with all that scheduling, re-scheduling over and over, and often lack of communication. I know just in time manufacturing and all, but then isn't scheduled for production means we've got everything we need to complete that order? I guess the answer to that is no. And in that case scheduled for production, about the only window into the process from our end, means nothing. And going further, they, Ford that is, see all that way ahead of us, so some clear communication with adjusted expectations would've been great.

i agree to a point but Ford has not made it any easier to get some real information. I don’t believe anything I’m told at this point, especially from my dealer. I’m suspicious that they’d be happy to have me bail on my order so they can sell my badlands at 5k+ over msrp. Ford isn’t responsible but they aren’t making it any easier.
