Just rang my dealer to check on progress of my car (ordered December) and apparently current delivery on "new build from scratch" is SEPTEMBER


Thank goodness I didn't wait to order as he's "confident" this isn't the case with existing orders placed.

Well, let's just say this it had better not be or I quite seriously might just give up!

I feel your pain - mine is looking like May though from a December order so I would get your dealer to chase up.

When this happened to Nissan they supplied cars during the wait -
Source WhatCar
Three- to six-month wait for Juke & Qashqai

Free loan car if wait is more than three months

Micra and Note loan cars available
Nissan is to offer customers who have bought a Juke, Qashqai
or Qashqai +2 a free loan car if they face a wait of more than three
months for their new car.Customers who order a Juke will be offered the
use of a Micra, while Qashqai and Qashqai+2 buyers will be offered a Note.
Nissan
says lead times for the new Juke and Qashqai are between three and six
months, with versions fitted with a CVT gearbox being in particularly
short supply.
Customers who have already placed an order will
also be eligible to request a loan car through the supplying dealer,
providing the remaining waiting time exceeds three months. The first
customers will receive loan cars on February 24

And there was more from the RAC, it included insurance!
Nissan loans cars to waiting buyer

15 Feb 2011 at 08:31

Customers who face long delivery periods for their Nissan cars are being offered vehicles on loan for free while they wait.

The
carmaker said buyers who have placed orders for the Juke, Qashqai and
Qashqai+2 models and have a waiting time of longer than three months
will be eligible for the offer.

Juke buyers can request the use of a Micra, while
those who have ordered for Qashqai and Qashqai+2 can drive around a
Note while their new car arrives.

The vehicles will be made available free of charge upon request from the supplying dealer and the scheme also includes a car insurance cover for the loan car, "subject to normal terms and conditions"

Nissan said the offer is in response to the
unprecedented demand for the new models and the first of the cars will
be loaned on February 24.

Paul Willcox, managing director of Nissan Motor
(GB), said: "Juke and Qashqai models are in huge demand at the moment
and it became apparent that the long lead times were inconveniencing
some customers. To demonstrate our customer commitment we have developed
this new, industry-leading scheme."

Interesting re Nissan.

Given I was told 12-16 weeks was the lead time and I paid my £500 deposit on the 7 December, I will be looking to "review" my deal with them if they come back with a May Delivery!

My concern is that my Astra will be three years old in June so need an MOT and taxed and also the tyres are pretty near needing replaced too.

On the other hand they gave me a p/x on the car in December that was good - especially since they asked me NO questions about the cars use - I use it for work so the mileage will have gone up considerably with each passing month.

On top of this is the fact that I want the 0% payment terms.

Aaarrrrggghhhhh this is becoming very frustrating.

The guy at the dealer promised me a call back at 2pm....tick tock tick tock it's 2.30pm

Wow, so technically my missus could fall pregnant and birth a cash guzzler in the time it takes some people to get their Mokka's.

I have just got off the phone to the dealer. He says I'm at Event 21.

Is that good and when do I get a tick in the first box on the tracker.

Anyone help?

I don't want to burst your bubble but last week some of us were told by our dealers that anyone at an Event code before 25 HAD been delayed in their build and delivery.

I am getting increasingly annoyed now as it's 3.30pm and the call at 2pm is yet to come....

I assumed they meant 2pm GMT but that's the problem with assumptions.... I assumed "you'll have your car by April" meant I'd have my car by April.

okay so I've just spoken to the dealer and she's read me a release they got at all Vauxhall Dealers on 9 January saying basically that what volumes had been promised for February to April were not going to happen and that "you're still on for delivery Early May".

WHAT?

May has never, I repeat NEVER been mentioned.

I'm still at event 25 and have been since 14 December....so clearly things are not good and I'm not happy.

If it's already slipped back to May then it's going to slip back further isn't it?!

NOT HAPPY NOT HAPPY NOT HAPPY.
