SIDO Wait, how long is long enough?

Hi All,

I've been waiting for a SIDO for over three weeks. Order went through with the dealer but dealer says the ball's in Ford's court now. Yes I do expect wait for what I ordered but as long as there's no SIDO there's no chance of a schedule.

How long have others had to wait for a SIDO and schedule?

This is my first Ford ever so I have no allegiance to the brand. I would give up except for the fact that the XR8 ute is such a bloody good package and I'm way less impressed with the other team.

Yours in limbo,

MADDER (and MADDER)

Thanks guys.

I feel much better now, knowing that it might take me a couple of months to find out I have to wait a couple of months.

Meanwhile I slowly go madder day by day.

Well, I ordered my XR8 in early May, and got a Sido the next week.

You guys who took a long time to get a Sido - are you buying from Country dealers or are you buying from city dealers with higher XR allocations per month?

Have you been active in calling your dealer to get a Sido, or did you sit back and wait for them to phone it through to you?

Just to add to the frustration I ordered a n/a XR6 (some extras)on 17 March, sido a couple of days later (2 from memory). Car left factory 16 May, delivery 23 May. So about 10 weeks, give or take a couple of days ( dont forget this time period also include a easter shutdown!).

Just I thought from the wise - be patient - all those good things come to those who wait. I know it is frustrating, but it will be built, its just every other person wants what we want yesterday.

And before anyone says anything Iam not be sarcastic - just realistic!

Luke,

I'm ordering from an outer-suburban dealer that gave me a sweet deal. I rang him every day for two-weeks. Now I ring every couple of days. I think the problems might be that:

1. It's a ute.

2. Leather.

3. Auto.

4. Passenger airbag. (optional because tradies don't care about passengers)

Oh, and the Premium sound.

Not exactly a combination that the dealers are being flooded with.

What gives with the allocation system. How could that affect me? Does it limit how many XR's the dealer can get built in a given period?

Thanks all.

G'day,

I am under the impression that as soon as your dealer places the order with Ford, it will be allocated a SIDO, so keep hassling your dealer.

Cheers, Tony

I agree with Tony, My ford dealer told me that when Ford "acknowledge" the dealer order they send back a SIDO number.
