I thought that if you have a VIN /Build Date then Ford is saying that they have all of parts for your vehicle.
I've been told the same, they have the parts to build what they have assigned. I'm guessing there are bigger issues at play and it's not good. I am holding on, I will get it when I get it. I've heavily considered buying off a lot and accepting a small sacrifice. But nothing in my area is even close to what I ordered.

Maybe they are short on watertight ECU connectors :) :)

Another one out of the waiting room. See new avatar!
And when you do finally get out of the waiting room do - as reported on another thread - check your tire air pressure. Mine were all around 42 lbs. I checked the inflation sticker on the door sill and dropped them to the recommended 33 lbs. It made a noticeable difference in the ride and handling.

Just got an email update from Ford with new and earlier build date - from June 28th to June 21st. I'm not complaining but considering 2 week production shutdown and chip shortage I find this change's direction strange. Like I said, I'm not complaining. ☺

Edit: just noticed that last email includes new Track My Order button. That's definitely new development. I can see my order details there, etc.

That’s strange. My email had a 🤬your order button.

Well, I just got another impersonal update from Ford. They moved build week from June 7th to June 28th. The saga continues... Ordered February 15th. I have had a VIN since mid March. Build week from May 10th to May 17th to June 7th now to June 28th. UGH.
