Hi there,

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Olly and glad to have joined.

I have a 1.7 CDTi Mokka Exclusiv with Navi600 on order in Metallic Grey (ordered back in November), and waiting to find out a delivery date - hoping to have it 1st March for new number plate.

Looking forward to being part of the community and sharing & learning.

Thanks

Olly

Hi there,

I think I posted too soon:

I ordered my Mokka on the 1st December (bit gutted to miss free
fuel, but got a good 8% discount), and was told it would be delivered in
Feb 2012. We had asked from day 1 to be able to delay the pickup until
1st March to get the new 13 plate (lucky for some!)

At first I though that sounds good, though the more I read on this forum the more I feel that is way out.

I
contacted the dealer early on this week (before I had joined up here)
for an update and was told everything was on track and so I
provisionally asked to come in to collect on Satruday 2nd March. He said
yep thats fine and put it in the diary.

Having now read a few
posts on here, I wonder if I should have had a tracking number by now?
Or at least some sort of confirmation?
I just wanted to run it past your good selves before I call back up later today so that I have some ammo for chasing!

Thanks in advance

Olly

All you need to do, is ring up and ask for an update on your mokka and ask if he has a tracking number, for you to use on the tracking site.

Let us know how you get on

Right, just rang the garage, the salesman I have been dealing with is off today, so a colleague looked at my file on the system for me. Verbal message was along the lines of:

Vauxhall are yet to allocate your order a build date so I have nothing to report as yet regarding the delivery date to ourselves. You will receive confirmation of the build dates and then nearer the time confirmation of expected delivery dates from Vauxhall.

Given I have had nothing, it looks like I will be waiting a while! I am now quite dissappointed as to why the other salesman didn't say this on Monday - guess I will have to have a word with him tomorrow.

He went on to say if I ordered a new Mokka today, they are estimating June deliveries! Looks like I am playing the waiting game and am quite a way down the queue!

The most annoying thing is that the tax/MOT/Insurance on my trade in car all runs out in April so I am hoping I wont have to renew all three just for a month or two's delay. I will be asking the garage to at least cover some of this.

Cheers

Olly

Guys, look at my previous link.

I'm at step 25 and not showing on the tracker website. When you are at step 33 you will get a production date allocated. I've a date of May 2nd and it was originally February hence my link will clear things up and may give you some bargaining power.

Let me know how you get on.

Hi there,

Just to keep you updated and hopefully to share my pain and frustration!

Spoke to salesman today and got my tracking number - not even at stage 1! And on the email I got when I registered my email address against the number it had the following quote:

We'll contact you when your car has been allocated a build week. This
should be around nine to ten weeks before the delivery date advised by
your Retailer.


Looks like I am going to be waiting it out!

Though for the record (and might be useful info to others) when I questioned this with the salesman who had promised this early delivery of Feb, he said until the system actually gave a date I could not be sure it was going to be late! Whaaaat!!
As if it will suddenly tomorrow say build date of next week and delivery in Feb - yer right!

I now have to wait for a date - as we all do!

Glad its just not my dealer then. Part of me (the very optimistic side) does wonder if we might be pleasantly surprised and maybe the tracking system has an error, though the realist in me says to look forward to getting the car in May!

As hard as the wait is (especially if your dealer is BS-ing you) better to think later than sooner so you can only be happy with the outcome. Its just very annoying if the dategets changed literally at the last minute!!!
Hang on in there though guys!!!! Before you know it you will look back (like some of the fortunate Mokka ownersalready have) and it will have a few thousand on the clock and memories on the camera!!!
