Hi everyone, I'm new! 

 

I ordered my Fiesta Titanium X 1.6 Powershift in Hot Magenta (Is a Motability car, but with no modifications), in April, and was given a delivery date of 26th June. 

 

Then, I received a phone call from my dealer the other day, saying because it's Automatic (has to be for medical reasons), and my exact model is available in America, they are struggling to get hold of an Automatic gearbox!!! He said they have an estimated build date for the end of this month, then it'll take 3 weeks to get here.

 

However after reading some posts on here about delays with the Zetec S in White, I'm starting to get concerned that this is going to drag on for much longer than what they've told me...  :(

 

Anyone else in a similar position? 

 

Thanks guys!

 

Tracey x

Hi is the one you have ordered an automatic? As my delay is only caused by supply issues of the Automatic Transmission x

From past experience and from current vw's there are usually estimates, it's only when you get confirmed build can you get an accurate date, while its an estimated build it can keep changing.

I can't remember the dealer's exact words, whether he said 'estimated' build date or just build date. Don't really know what to do now...

 

If it's gonna be anymore than another 6 or so weeks, then I need to think about cancelling :(

If it makes you feel any better, Polos were always 20 weeks as were golf estates. The dealer should be able to give you an exact date once it becomes confirmed. I cannot remember the exact dealer speak for it but there comes a time where you can amend the the and then it changes to confirmed, once built it usually takes 3 weeks from factory to uk.

Is there any reason why you don't want to wait any longer, is it just the time involved ?

I ordered my Mk7 in May 2009 and didn't see the keys until the September!

I wouldn't be so quick to cancel, it'll be worth the wait.

The reason I can't wait much longer, is because my current car's MOT is due at end of July, and I'm pretty sure it will need quite a bit spending on it!
Just been told that it 'should' be 3rd week of July... Fingers crossed!! :)

Spoke to the dealer today. I've got the reg and vin number. I'm still hoping for collection on Saturday. But the dealer hasn't had the car delivered to the dealership tho. :(
So I've got my fingers and every thing else crossed lol.
