    Hey Vins thank you! I'm in Salzgitter just an hour away from Hannover.

    Shipping it with the dummy (lincoln) steering wheel and buy an aftermarket GT350 steering wheel from CJ. You just have to find your car on the parking lot and get someone to let you get away with it ๐Ÿ˜…

    2019 Mustang Production Information

    Okay I found out that my car was already built in December and left the plant on January 14th. So I guess I'm one of the lucky guys.

    No matter if it's related to the strike, fact is that they are missing๐Ÿ˜… Problem is that ford is apparently depending on one supplier. If there's no other one, we just have to wait.

    Okay I hope they don't run out of storage space, pulled it up on google maps There are a few pretty large parking lots right next to the plant. I follow the news about the strike in matamoros, but it's not quite sure what's actually happening there right now. Some are working some are not. Some will apparently get 20% more, others now want that, too. Big mess. The german dealers don't know anything about that...
  7. Hi, due to the part shortage at flat rock plant, I'd like to know if my car has already been built. Blend date was February 1st. Would be nice to know if and when it's been built. VIN: 1FA6P8CF6K5145592 Thank you!

    I guess the plant has it's own testing facility with a small track ๐Ÿค”

    I follow the news about the strike in matamoros. Doesn't look that good for us. Work's still not continuing in a lot of factories down there. Maybe Ford is already a step further in autonomous driving, doesn't need a steering wheel for that ๐Ÿ˜…

    Hello from Germany

    Hi Rainer, I'm working at a VW plant, I thought Volkswagen can't be the only one, who's absolutely depending on a single supplier. We're building engines at our plant ( 3 to 16 cylinder), often have the same problems. Parts like injection valves, turbochargers are bought from external suppliers, if they have a problem our lines stand still.

    I think he's talking about the production. A few posts before "It's not going to last long", he said: Yes, they are back to work; and this is not going to last long. Sure they're working, but I think, still with those dummy steering wheels. I don' know much about the processes at ford, but I work for a German carmaker. If there's an issue like this, the cars will be "fixed" according to the actual production order.

    Right I ordered on October 1st, estimated delivery time was 7-8 month (last week in april). Blend date is Feb. 1st, last working shift was on 01/18, if they got back to work this Monday (still not installing the actual steering wheels) it will take 4 weeks longer, minimum.

    Ok well, blend date of my car was 1st Feb. should arrive at my local dealer at the end of April (according to the dealer). Guess I have to wait a few more weeks.

    You said they're building 400 cars per shift. Is this full capacity or could it be more? How many shifts per week? I guess it will take quiet a while to install all the missing steering wheels.
