Wow. They are definitely seeing the states. It was in Michigan last week, now Missouri? I still haven’t heard back from my dealer. I have a bad taste in my mouth for them. I’ve made several calls and even sent emails with no response. I guess they figure it’s a definite sale so why bother…..😔
I hate to hear stuff like this. a guaranteed sale should be a long relationship. One car is a sale, a GOOD sale is a lifetime of buying and service. Short-sighted and narrow focus on the quick buck is a terrible business plan.

Old news I know, but it continues to snowball.
The Hermosillo plant can't even make enough quality vehicles to meet the promised delivery dates and Ford's planning on Mavericks from the same plant. This is getting ridiculous.

Yet their stock continues to climb.

Now TV commercials for Maverick to go along with Bronco Sport commercials. Maybe Ford should take commercial money and put it toward building vehicles instead?

I wonder how long it's going to take before there is a Waiting Room thread for the Maverick, F150 Lightning, and Mach-E.

And spend it on what? It's not a money problem it's a supply issues where suppliers can't deliver. We are in a world where shipping stuff is challenging and finding someone to work instead of live off government handouts is even more challenging.

Every morning I look out the window at my nextdoor neighbors BS , it makes the waiting even tougher, then I run in and check the tracker, damn, still not built.

Chip supply. Kentucky speedway is stacked with F150 their lifeblood waiting on chips. Depending on China for anything is bad government.
It was not the government that moved to the cheaper production area. Don't get me wrong we need to get closer to home with a lot of things.

So, what do you do when your dogs wake you up a 0430 to go outside, you check the Tracker. Sticker updated in a few areas: Date updated to 6/12. No more Convoy, it says Rail. It also has Colorado as destination, and not Sonora.
Production completed yesterday, and (for now) have an ETA of 7/6. :thumbsup::fingerscrossed:

Took the word out of my mouth, globalized supply chains were established by economics.
Many companies chose to outsource or offshore their operations based on cost.

But it certainly doesn't help when your government incentivizes the domestic labor-force to not work.

Hyundai & Kia don’t appear to have a problem.
