2011 Ford Fiestas Delayed, Customers Offered $50 Gift Cards


Sometimes, things don't always go as planned. And that's exactly what happened to Ford. Due to a series of unforeseeable events that were out of Ford's control, some customers will have to wait a little bit longer to get their new 2011 Fiesta sedans and hatchbacks.

You can hardly blame Ford for this – railroads were damaged by Hurricane Alex and Tropical Storm Bonnie that hit Northern Mexico hard earlier this summer. These railroads provide the shipments to the factory where Ford builds the Fiesta.

Because of this, it may take about two weeks for customers to receive their new 2011 Fiesta. For their trouble, Ford will be giving these customers a $50 MasterCard gift card. So, you can use the money to go to the mall and do a little shopping. But since you don't have a car to get there just yet, you may have to take public transit.

Ford sales analyst George Pipas told Automotive News that Ford has "about 6,500 to 7,000 [Fiestas] in transit to dealers" and that the cars should start to be fully stocked within the next couple of months.
