    Hi

    ive just had a call to tell me that currently unable to order a mercedes at the moment , im unsure if i was going to order a mercedes again, currently have a A200 and ive done 56,000 miles so its unlikely i can extend the lease.

    i did want to order a CLA, but i dont think this will happen now!

    Mercedes have been off the scheme for several weeks now. Hopefully they will return at the start of 2021 but far from certain I’d say.

    Shoecake – do you have to order now or can you wait until January? Hopefully Mercedes will return, as Rene says. There is likely to be a delay in getting the car anyway, I would have thought, due to the chip shortage, so as long as Mercedes return and you order before your current lease expires, you’ll be kept in your A200 until it arrives.

    Mercedes have been off the scheme from July 2021 ,everyone needs to check what cars are on the scheme ,not many, and as has been said you will wait over 13 months if you can order a car, BMW 1 & 2 are I think on scheme ???  chip shortage has messed up everything mercedes I feel are concentrating on building high value & electric cars, it’s been said by mercedes they will return to motability Q1 or Q2 2022.

    I got an order in for CLA shootingbreak June 14th, I’m told order is still in ,I have no approx delivery date to UK ,my own eastimate is  June 2022 ,that’s 12/13 months wait. With ad  payment £5300.

    I think when they return cheepest  CLA model will be £4000, I think. Mercedes have alot of customers ,it seems all walks of life into getting new car want mercedes

    I hope all turns out well.

    I’ve been reading alot about chip shortage lead times for new cars pandemic times etc,nearly all cars have 12 month wait IN REALITY  dealerships ,professional assistants online know NOTHING  they will tell you lead times 6 to 8 weeks ,absurd, 6 months etc etc ,many new car manufacturers have lead times of 12 month ,many including mercedes won’t take anymore orders this year, no more AMG lines being built this year , it’s said ?????  Manufacturers have car parks with PART BUILT NEW CARS LESS SILLYCON CHIP UNITS ???is that true ? No one seems to know ,no one will can tell you.

    I found email for mercedes UK,emailed them,a bloke miller replied sat I will check how your car is progressing  ,nothing heard for 3 months , then an assistant replied and said ,it’s delayed because of chip shortage ,WE KNOW THAT.

    It’s depressing JUST WAIT WAIT WAIT  and see what happens, if anything will.

    Stay safe .

    A few weeks ago I was told at least 12 months wait up to possibly 18 months due to shortage is semi conductors, the new factories producing the chips are now running at 100% production

    When our brand new 71 plate Peugeot failed and contract was cancelled we were told 18 months wait for Vauxhall Vivaro fortunately ringing every dealer we happened on one being cancelled and more fortunate it was a cancellation on delivery as the home  charger had not been fitted so we got it in 72 hours. Not sure I have the patience gene for an 18 month wait, just glad that by the time we change now be it 3 or 5 years some normality may have returned

    It just made me look for the date they removed them all, that’s all.

    BTW, the Mondeo is awesome (forgetting the RAC debacle)
