Welcome!  You and I were probably the only two 2010 MKZ owners on LI with the Sport package. ;)   I had a 2012 also.  In all that time, I saw only two other Sports around here.  Maybe yours was one of them.

Mine was Tuxedo Black with Steel Grey leather. Those Sport Package wheels made the car!

If you like a hard ride, the 2010/2012 with the Sport suspension fit the bill!

Yes, I get the feeling that the tire info on the Lincoln website is incorrect and that all 2017 MKZ's with 19-inch wheels will have the 40-profile tires. I guess the proof will be when the 3.0t's start hitting the dealers. If the 45-profile is correct I would want to order the Drivers Package, what a great combination of mechanical and cosmetic upgrades for the price!

Grey03 - Any word on the shipment of your car yet?

 

I checked mine, per the concierge its "in production" but as of yet have not received the VIN (thinking its in queue for VIN assignment) and hoping for an early july build... But it may not matter unless they have approved the 3.0 for shipment.... 

 

hell we may end up getting our cars at nearly the same time

I checked with Lincoln a few days ago and my car had the same status. Sounded like they are missing some parts.... Guy said my car was still in production. Even though it was built 3 weeks ago... Probably something stupid holding them up.. He said it should be released in a week or two. I will check again in a couple days and let you know.

Good to know. I got my VIN yesterday. As of right now the dealer is saying its scheduled for build of July 4. Due to some initial issues with my sales guy ( I now have a new one). They are going to try to expedite the build if possible. I am hoping for delivery sometime the week of July 11 or July 18

Got my VIN tonight from the Lincoln Concierge. He was a lot more helpful than my salesman. No real idea when it will build.

He thought maybe late July. I did use the https://www.etis.ford.com website. It finds my VIN but it doesn't show a build date yet.

Wow. Sounds like we had the same sales guy. Your not near Troy MI are you? Lol.

After a some what rude and snippish voicemail in response to a question, we called the sales manager and she assigned us a new sales guy and the difference is night and day.

In addition they are requesting an expedited build schedule. It has been a much more pleasurable experience since.

No bad attitude with my salesman just says he'll do something then does nothing.

 

The Lincoln Concierge told my dealer should be able to help me.

 

I told them if they would have I wouldn't be talking to him.

Just check the status of my build and it is not much more than before.  no exact build date yet but "scheduled for a july build" according to the Lincoln Concierge.  she did say that it is past order processing and is waiting for the schedule date.  

 

I have my fingers crossed for a build the week of the 4th and hopefully delivered the week of the 18th

I wouldn't count on that.  Ford plants are traditionally shut down each summer from approx. 7/4-7/15.  They've knocked a week off that this year only for plants that build CUVs/SUVs due to unprecedented demand.

i finally got my window sticker... up until this weekend it would come up with the message "this window sticker has not been created" 

 

today i checked it and it showed up...yay! 

 

lincoln concierge says that it is scheduled for build next week.  I asked about a shut down and they said there was nothing they can see that indicates a shutdown.

That's interesting and I hope it's true.  However,

 

bizjournal.com, 6/17/16:

 

The remainder of Ford's North American manufacturing facilities will shut down from July 4-15 for regularly scheduled building maintenance and machine retooling.

 

Entire article.

Agreed. After your initial post re shut down (makes to much sense) and now the article. I have resigned myself to the most likely outcome that the first week of August is going to be the time.

I believe there is a little "hope" that earlier will be done ( my current car is 9+ ) And with her replacement on the way she starting to wear on the one last nerve I have left . Lol

Yes. They seem to "know" when you have a new car on the way.   Years ago, on the same day I ordered a new car, the oil pressure light came on in the old one.  Then it went off.  It was just letting me know it wasn't happy. :hysterical:

after your statement did some more digging around and found this.

 

shows that Hermosillo is closed the week of the 25 July and week of aug 1

Great!  So you should be on target for a build date next week based on the date (6/28/16) on the bottom of your window sticker.

 

Apparently, UAW agreements don't apply in Mexico. ;)

Schteve , crazy how this all works. Your VIN is sequentially later than mine, 617976 to my 617919 but I don't have a window sticker or build date yet.

Sequence number evidently has nothing to do with build timing.

Dude, that is a major bummer... and very strange.  It makes sense that you have an earlier VIN since I didn't place my order until June 13. 

 

Maybe my dealership does have a decent amount of pull (reference above post regarding first salesman) and did say they were attempting to expedite my build as much as they could.

 

but yeah that is a bummer you don't have your window sticker yet.
