There are several documents through a simple google search which state that even in Canada, the warranty starts once the vehicle is delivered to the first buyer, other than the dealer.That's not how it works up here, guess you guys are different.
Sounds good.There are several documents through a simple google search which state that even in Canada, the warranty starts once the vehicle is delivered to the first buyer, other than the dealer.
This is from the Ford Canada warranty guide. I suppose "first use" could be interpreted as it being driven on and off the delivery truck or having been test driven, but that would be very shady.

Correct. I bought my 2011 escalade in 2012 but it was “brand new” with 150 miles. My warranty began when I took possession of the vehicle.According to the Ford website:
“The Warranty Start Date (also known as the in-service date) is the date a new vehicle was purchased or when it was first put into service (for example as a dealer demonstrator), whichever occurred first. “
This is when I’ve always understood new car warranty to begin.
I keep checking and since last week it says order status update is not available. How is the system not working?!Some have suggested, reasonably, that the unfinished Raptors have been left to sit while the parts needed are used to build others at the same because it might be more efficient for Ford to not interrupt the assembly line.
However, after reading about so many orders not being filled and being rolled over to '22, perhaps Ford is trying to simply produce the most year 21's that they can without regard to their actual ability to complete those vehicles? To do this, they don't care that some going down the assembly line will not be completed and sit for months because the vehicle is already vested as a '21.
Is it just an overall numbers game so they can claim production of much higher number of Raptors for '21? Maybe they are also trying to avoid the hassle of clearing out assigned vin #'s, as would be required to turn each into a '22?
