Are you sure that's yours?  They typically don't show up on the Ford website until they've been shipped.


Also understand it's possible yours gets held at the factory for up to a few weeks until it can be inspected and repaired before shipping.   Just depends on how many they had to hold.


Yup, it's my Explorer that's listed as part of the dealership's inventory. I know because the VIN specified at the dealership's website is the same as the VIN given to me by my sales guy on September 14. No question about it.


Just for yucks, I submitted an online inquiry to the dealership to express an interest in buying "my" Explorer. A few minutes later, I received a polite e-mail reply from the dealership letting me know "my" Explorer had already been sold.
