        Of all the cars I have ordered over the years, only the most recent one went belly up to an unknown 18 months of waiting. The VW dealer had no idea because VW wouldn’t/couldn’t tell them. I asked VW for an update, they suggested I contacted the dealer, a merry-go-round. Yes, 18 months of waiting.

        VW ID3 Max is my DD

            I feel your pain, I suspect it’s to get the sale in!

              In most cases they just get an indicative delivery date, unfortunately supply chain issues cause dates to not be a fine art!

                I agree with what everybody saying, but you might you fail to make payments on time then it’s all held  brakes loose Motability should set rules about delivery times   The reason I say this is because from what I was told my a motability advisor when a car is put on the System for a customer to collect they have four days to get them to pick it up unless there is an emergency e.g. the hire go into hospital otherwise  the dealership is fined

                  I was told roughly the same I had until end of week to pick-up car or it would have to be sent back.

                    I ordered a Megane E Tech over 3 months ago…dealer was certain I’d have it in time for when my lease ended… The car has still not been built.

                      I just ordered an Ioniq 5 AWD, the first visit, a look-see, they looked on their system and said “it’ll be 6-9 months, there’s no UK stock. Great news though, it’ll be the new facelift version”

                      Next visit, test drive, Motability salesman no.2 says “We have one in stock, but even if not, you’d easy get one by your handover date”

                      Time to order…back to salesman no. 1 who forgot I’d already spoken  to him…looks on the system, “There’s no stock in the UK, I’ll put you in for 13 Sept collection date, just to make sure it’s here by then” followed by “It’ll be the current version, facelifted cars won’t be here till March 2025.”.

                      So, take your pick. Hyundai forums say 6 months at least, so I’m inclined to go with response no.1, not lease because it’s also the most vague!

                      In life, it's not who you know that's important, it's how your wife found out.

                        Just read on the Enyaq forum that someone ordered their Enyaq Coupe on 19th January,  it was built on 6th April and delivered on 18th May & it’s now sat on his drive, with photo!

                        What is going on with these build & delivery times?

                          Ah. Never forget that you are a Motability customer – and therefore, it is back of the queue for you sir!

                              e 3008 ordered early February told end of June start of July. Now told August and I expect it to be later. About 15 weeks and not even a build date yet.

                                I must admit that motability should start saying to Car makers if you can’t deliver within a decent timescale will have to remove your cars the  scheme it would be Interesting to see what would happen because at the end of the day the car manufactures know Motability is a steady stream of New car  Sales Even if they were a discount, there’s no way Joe probably could take up the slack that Motability buy car
