I ordered a 2013 Escape Titanium, White

The dealer said 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. Is this realistic? Any configurations that are being delayed for shortages or a flood of orders?

I think that due to the recalls, they are shipping slower than normal :(

Do they have to fix the ones already made before they can ship them to the dealer?

I ordered mine and it took about 6 weeks. It was cool to see the window sticker with the SPECIAL ORDER stamped on it.

I traded my 2012 Ford Focus Titanium,that I put 29.400 miles on 13 months, for the 2013 Escape Titanium. I made the purchase in Topeka, KS, drove the Focus there, picked up the Escape and drove it 1,380 miles with one 4 hour stop. I took backroads to work on a photo project and the Escape is impressive.

I picked mine up last Friday. Traded the 2012 Ford Focus Titanium and drove the 2013 Escape Titanium home. The 1,380 mile drive was fabulous. I took many backroads to gather material for one of my upcoming books and was really impressed.

The 2012 Focus got 29.800 miles in the 13 months I owned it and was generally a very good car.

Having had some experience with vehicle development, R&D and production I am impressed with the Escape. It has a couple of the "tiny" glitches that carry over from the Focus interior but nothing I can't deal with.

In addition, I continue to like the MFT system much better than the Porsche PCM or Mercedes-Benz COMAND that my wife and I deal with in other cars.

I'm eager to spend some time with the Escape.
