Delivery time

Post by Wadard » Sat Jul 10, 2021 5:05 pm

I ordered a Tour Pro S on 12th June and was quoted delivery 30th October. I've heard nothing from dealer since placing order. I see now VW has a special offer - order this weekend for delivery end of September. What is going on?

I think that is just the validity period for the offer. We ordered two weeks ago, have also heard nothing but got told at the time by the dealer it could be November.

That’s not like a DFS “in time for Christmas” type of offer.

I think the offer is basically to sell through existing stock. If you have a factory order, you're not going to fit into this category.

When I recently ordered our Tour last week, I was told by the dealer that all Tour orders that can't be fulfilled by existing dealer or national stock are on ~16-20 week lead times. He also said that lead time are beginning to ease up once confirmed and that 16-20 week lead time will probably be improved on.

The situation is leading to lunacy like VW Blackpool advertising their ID.3 Tour demonstrator on Autotrader for £49,999 with an availability of December 2021 :o

Hello there, I ordered a Life Pro, in April, and I was told it would be with me in September. There was a change in the Motability advanced payment and, to cut a long story short, I was told that if I were to order one now (this was last Saturday 17th) that it would be a January delivery at the earliest and the dealer said that he fully expects that to be put back further. Thankfully, I managed to sort out my initial order, it's now due mid-August, and I have to say my VW dealer has been first class in keeping me posted. These are strange and unique times we are living in that are constantly changing.

You can get lucky: my delivery time was only 3 weeks, and it's a total delight. Presumably, no one else wanted my spec.

Ordered a Family Pro Performance about 3 weeks ago and haven't even had a delivery date yet. Am Bracing myself for a long lead time. Am thinking there may be high demand as well after the euros where they were being plastered all over our television screens!

I ordered my Family today… 20 weeks according to VW for factory orders but the dealer seemed to think it may be a little less. Regardless, plenty of time to source a home charger!

ordered my Family Pro Performance yesterday (moonstone grey/derry wheels) was told anywhere from 5-7 months due to silicon chip shortages, it is a factory order and my current lease will end in feb 22 so it isn't an issue, glad i started looking earlier than planned, the test drive i had yesterday was awesome though.
