New car delivery times
« on: 21 July 2021, 20:37 »
Hi Everyone,

Just a word of warning for anyone with a vehicle on order, we have been instructed to pass on a letter from VW about current and future delays for any new cars.

Also today I noticed we have some cars that have now got scheduled build weeks for next March/April 2022  :sick:

Delays could certainly break any previous records

Oh gf ordered a Tiguan, it was due for build week 25, received the letter last week advising of delays, yesterday received a text advising it had left the factory - so week 29 + 3 days
