Out of curiosity, just noted that the time stamp posted on our notes looks like Greenwich, UK (+5hours).

For the Forum members who already have their Transits, the information from their window sticker as well as their arrival at the dealer would be helpful to ALL the members waiting on their van.

Even though some ordered their van back in mid-2014, it will give us a start of how the production rate was in the beginning and how it has changed and/or progressed up to now.
Another change will happen when the second shift starts as they should have more production available, but will the transportation get better to the dealers or will it get more complicated? Unless there are more railcars available to move more Transits (mostly the MR & HR models) there will continue to be holdups in getting your special ordered Transit to your dealer.

Ahhh, Thanks Peter, I think I was using the 4th number from the end versus the 3rd... Well that is really good news, Perhaps this thing is sitting on the lot waiting for a Ride to Wisconsin!!!

FKA40876 T-350 XLT HD Wagon Oxford White, 3.5L with 3.73 LS starting build date 12/10/2014
Going to Bayer Ford Comanche, TX MSRP $47,520


Was curious that this van is being built on 12/10 as I am looking for a friends van with VIN FKA40238. The above van looks to be a stock ordered van; 40238 is special ordered

Last time I checked with the dealer, they hoped to see it the last week of Dec.

Cheers,
Dave.

You can change this in your account settings I think.

CrewVan Man,

Thank for all the insight you are bringing to our forum, really appreciated. I am posting bellow my ETIS screen print and wonder if you could give some insight on what should I look for in order to know my van has passed quality control and is ready to ship.
Hope this methodical approach you are bringing to the posts helps others.

The 30.11.002 is just a plugged-in number. You will have a update with a correct date on ETIS. It will give you a listing of items as it goes down the assembly line. To date, have not come to figure out some of the language as it shows some differences between what is on the window sticker and what is shown on ETIS.

Your update should happen about 7 to 10 days after the start of production, so look for changes starting around 12/12 to 12/15. This is when QUALITY CONTROL releases the van for transportation.

I wonder how long it takes from start to finish? Building that is. Sure takes longer to get the thing scheduled that is for sure.
