    The 6 week time frame that dealers always say is total crap, I have yet to see anyone get a Fiesta that fast. I doubt most salesman even bothered looking up realistic delivery times for the Fiesta when they tell their customers "6 weeks". I ordered my 2011 in February and got it in July, ordered my ST in the beginning of May and got it late August. Both of those were high priority orders as well. I really wish dealers would be honest with the delivery times and not get people's hopes up with 6 weeks. I have seen this a number of times on the FiestaFaction board as well.

    Well... I "reserved" my 2011 Fiesta in December 2009; it was ordered in March 2010 and delivered in June 2010. My Fiesta ST was ordered in March 2013 and delivered in September 2013.

    My dealership was real cool and laid back, but they were completely clueless when it came to the ST in general, much less the wait time. They gave me a good deal and they are local, so I guess it's worth the wait.

    haha I just got quoted for 6 weeks earlier this week. I even told the guy it was going go be longer from what I've seen from others and he said, and I quote, "I've only ever seen a 6 week wait on any of our models except for mustangs, but they are built differently than other models."

    Congratulations on your order, CanuckRS! Please know that with your order number and dealer code (or VIN if you have it available), I'm able to provide weekly updates. All I'll need is that information in a PM. Hope to talk to you soon!

    Ordered 7/23/14; delivered 12/12; picked her up on 12/13 at the dealer in (way) North Texas. A long time, but worth the wait as I got what I wanted and didn't settle like some others. Paid cash (actually cashier's check) so she's all mine!

    My dealer received the car on a Saturday. That said they might not have the people to do the PDI on Saturdays.
