Re: New 2019 VW Tiguan Petrol 230ps Ordered

When I collected mine the salesman told me that the transport company were using outside contractors to deliver vehicles to reduce the backlog of deliveries. Unfortunately as the drivers get paid per drop, they literally fill a transporter up and drop the cars off wherever the largest drop is. Ie if 8 cars are going to Liverpool and 3 to Manchester, they’ll drop all 11 at Liverpool. My salesman said they had 4 cars in their companions that belong to a dealership in the NE!

Thanks for your feedback all. Something has gone amiss somewhere, I have never known 3 weeks from port to dealer, especially when its only 60 miles away.

Unfortunately neither VW or the dealer can give any timings of when they will arrive. Fingers crossed next week!

I know. it's rubbish how a car dealer can not say when they will get delivery of the car they have ordered, really shocking to be honest as how difficult can this be.

So frustrating. :evil:

Hi JK,
Like you I chased them - especially as it’s allegedly been in the UK now for more than the typical 7 days to dealer discussed on the VW tracker website. Today, they emailed me with the expected date car arrives with them and their earliest date they could get it to me (April 16th). What systems they use internally I don’t know but that’s what they communicated to me.
Hence the crossing of many fingers, toes etc.
Out of interest who is your dealership?

Jk’s dealership is Caffyns down South, mine is Listers Leamington.

I’ve had a phone from the dealership an hour ago and they believe that mine is still at the docks, I believe it arrived the same time as yourselves.

Caffyns on the south coast.

It's annoying as it spent too long sitting on the dock in Germany and now it's sitting too long on a dock in the UK.
