How Long Did You Wait?

:ff Ford appears to have finally come to their senses and increased production because of the long waits and demand for Escape's. So I'm guessing that the wait times should be decreasing now. How long did everyone have to wait for their Escape (or Tribute) to come in.

My dealer started in with the "We can't deal 'cause we can't keep 'em on the lot." routine. I informed him that the 'Scape I wanted had been collecting dust on the lot for 30 days, that I knew of. He decided to negotiate (all the way to closing time) and I took it home the next day.

Angry

AAAARRRRGGGHH. Still waiting here for my DSG Sport after 8 weeks. I know its really not THAT long, but it seems like an eternity!! To make matters worse, the local dealer that had one of these on their lot sold it yesterday so I can't drive by and gawk at it anymore. However, this Thursday is Ford's scheduled delivery date for mine, so we'll see how things are in 3 days. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Without ever having seen it, we called the salesman who had it cleaned up and waiting for us when we arrived after work one evening. Took it for a test drive (not my first one of an Escape), came back, thrashed out the price, and came to a good agreement.
Left it there that night for them to do the dealer prep and undercoating and picked it up the next evening. Very, very pleasant. (Jerry's Ford in Annandale, VA, for you DC denizens.)
It really helped that we had bought an Explorer there 5 weeks before...which was fun because they wanted to sell it MUCH more than we wanted to buy it.

I ordered mine April 19th 2000 and it arrive on Sept 22 nd and ready for pickup on Sept 25th 2001. 5 months and 6 days.

Now they didn't actually start to build the Cdn Escapes until August of 2000 so I guess I can't complain.

Anyone order their Escapes prior to April 19th, 2000?

Gary
