Default So You've Ordered Your Focus EV...Now What?

To those lucky souls who live in CA/NY area and have ordered a Focus EV sight unseen, now what?

Ah the waiting game. All the joys of car ownership without any of the car.

In the Volt world you can exercise your OCD demons by tracking your order every step of the way online.

On the Ford side according to this post, once you have a VIN you can track it by calling your dealer and getting status updates.

This post suggest that Ford Customer Service can provide order updates if the dealer is less than fourthcoming.

For insight into the Ford allocation process check out this post.

For info on how to get a printout of your Window Sticker before the car actually arrives check out this.

Although this post suggest a different site for the window sticker.

Keep us posted on your order!

If you are on twitter you can send your VIN to @FordService and ask them (I've seen some people do it recently).

Sounds interesting, but does that mean everyone is seeing your request and their response?

Yes/No you can start your tweet with a 'd' as in 'd @FordService my VIN is xxxxx' which is a private direct message:
Direct Messages on Twitter but of course you'd have to get FordService to follow you first.

Yeah if you're really worried about privacy this wouldn't be the best way to go (OTOH @FordService loves to broadcast people that are happy with Ford; they frequently resend tweets such as "I love my new XXX" with a link to a picture as well as replies about vehicle orders).

In theory someone could trace you back to your address via the public VIN you just broadcasted, but there are far easier ways to track someone down on the internet (especially if they are on multiple social networks).
