    It really is no different from when I ordered my Tiguan early in 2018- it was a 36 week waiting time then, as many will remember.

    I was lucky as I was able to access a vehicle ‘on the way’ to the dealership, no real choice of colour etc, and had extras that maybe I would not have ordered, such as the hands free parking , but I had a car in a couple of weeks.

    I still have an ID4 on order, but I am told that they have stopped production, and I am currently looking around at other vehicles ,and will probably not have a VW this time, but I have not yet cancelled the order for the ID 4.

    We placed a factory order for a Tiguan in early 2018 and it took 20 weeks from order to delivery. Not great, but four months less than the 36 weeks you were quoted. Mind you, 20 weeks, or even 36 weeks, in the current climate would be seen as very quick!

    I seriously considered a Tiguan in mid 2019, but the delivery times were an absolute minimum of 6 months even then, by far the worst of the VAG group, good luck getting one inside a year now.

    Tiguan 1.5 TSI R-Line

    Dealer has advised: delivery could be as late as October this year.  I ordered  it in November 2021..!

    Carwow are saying delivery time for the Tiguan if ordered today is now 11 months.😢

    No one knows where they got that from, dealer, manufacture or out of a Rabbits hat but one reason given for the Tiguan going the extra mile is because its such a popular car.

    Giving a sum of 11 months across the whole Tiguan range is a little bit suspect because delivery times are being effected by model and how many chips are in that model plus DSG can delay too because it has its own chips on top of any you get in a manual gear box.

    Personally I’ve been told May delivery and hoping for July so I’ve already added 2 months to VW’s calculations.

    Can’t deny that times are getting longer though and I come here everyday hoping to see something that’s suitable for myself to turn up but for now all I can see is thunder storms and no sunshine on the horizon.

    I was in a VW dealership the other day, was told that the factory were not taking any order on the majority of models including Tiguan with the exception of the all space model which if we were lucky we might be able to order  and expect delivery in a years time.

    He then gestured at the cars in the showroom saying “even we do not know when we are getting new vehicles hense why our showroom is full of used stock”l

    I finally got a build date from my local VW dealership, order was placed in October 2021 and I have been given a week 33 (August) built date.

    I was wondering, if the prices of options I ordered goes up, do I pay the increased prices or the prices at time of order?

    Also, when do the factories change over for the next model year? I am wondering if VW will be removing any standard features or making any optional extras standard equipment before/during my vehicle is being built. I recall when I ordered my Tiguan SEL in 2018 the panoramic roof had the ambient light removed, though that was due to safety concerns.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all the countries invaded and occupied by the West. Palestinians who have been under 74 years of brutal occupation by an apartheid entity. Those plundered for their natural resources, those invaded for their geographical positioning, those slaughtered for being ethnic, those starved for standing up to injustices and those victims of colonial expansionism! Humanity is only humanity when all are treated the same regardless of their skin tone, religious beliefs and geography!

    Hi Masquerade. As I’m sure you appreciate, your build date is a best guess at present and can (and will) change, probably several times. From memory with our last Tiguan order, the build date isn’t finally confirmed until around 2 or 3 weeks before it’s actually built. Our date changed about 6 times! Again, from memory, the model year changes are around July / August after the factory summer shutdown. On that basis, if your car does turn up in August it will be a 22MY.

    I don’t know the answer about option prices, but it’s going to be a frequent question with the excessive lead times at present. Technically, I think the option price is the one applicable when you order, but it would help to get some order paperwork from the dealer with those prices on. That way you would hope that the dealer would honour it either way.

    As for potential changes, if VW has any sense they will increase the spec of the R-Line to match the Elegance (given that the R-Line lacks around £2k of kit that’s standard on the Elegance), probably calling it R-Line Tech as they did before. I doubt that they would change the Elegance, although it must be one of the most expensive cars not to have leather as standard. Can’t see them adding that, although there are big discounts to be had on Tiguans for private buyers at present and I guess they wouldn’t be doing that if they were having no issues selling them.

    I am hoping that they remove nothing but add more to the standard equipment list with the next model year and that I get the 23 model year, it would be a bonus having waited so long. If the Tech version ever turns up, I would prefer that as for the life of me I cannot understand the logic of VW, the higher up the model range you go, the less you get for your money. I currently have the SEL (Elegance equivalent) and it has more technology as standard over the R line of the same year and the same is true for the current facelift version, the R comes with even less, including safety equipment.

    I will have to look at the paperwork to see if the prices for options are on there as the email the dealer sent me had the new prices, which have increased £10 per item but out of principal and having to pay the high AP I will not be paying the increased prices.

    I agree with you. The R-Line makes no sense at all now. It used to be the top of the range with a price premium over the SEL. Now the Elegance is, I believe, very slightly more expensive than the R-Line, so they are effectively now joint top of the range – one with all the kit and the other with the trim embellishments.

    I’m expecting delays but thing seem to be just going worst to worst and just had an email from my dealer saying, and I quote…

    Just a quick update to advise the current situation with regards to your Motability Car Order.

    “At present there are a number of cars showing an ESTIMATED build date for later in the year.

    We believe this will change but at present I can only advise you of the current information showing on the Volkswagen ordering systems.

    All my Tiguan orders placed before the model was removed from the scheme are currently estimated for an October build.

    However this will be monitored and you will be updated again in a few weeks’ time.”

    …Unquote

    So 12 months to build and another month or so on top for delivery if the worst is confirmed.

    If I could get an honest answer from other manufactures or dealers about delivery time I might cancel and go else where but as thing are I’d be just jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    I think my Motability specialist is also fed up with having to get it in the neck and covering up for the dealer/manufacture as she said she leaving VW but will let me know who the new Motability stool pigeon is as soon as she knows.

    Same waiting time as the Golf then, as confirmed in the R-Line thread – people wait between 11 and 13 months currently on the Golf.

    The Tiguan had the occasional wait time of 43 weeks in april last year already (says google), so it does sound realistic.

    Sucks for everyone 🙁

    Hi Phil

    I don’t know of any Motability customers taking delivery but reading a Tiguan user forum there seemed to be a little flurry of deliveries just before Christmas for private lease buyers that had been waiting about an average of 12 months or longer.

    Hi Mikey

    That’s good news and puts the delivery at about 12 months so seems like that’s the norm now.

    Something of concern has just come to me after reading the Peugeot threads here in about missing heated seats I just thought that my Tiguan if delivered/built in October will be a MY23 model and I’m searching high and low for information on any specification changes for that year model with no luck as I won’t be happy if they take anything out of the already sparsely specified R-Line.

    Talking of MY dates I believe they took the wireless charging out of the Elegance (or was it the R-Line?) in the MY22 builds if memory serves me but could be wrong.

    Hi Chris.
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Your dead right no wireless charger but everything else is as per spec. And so is the R. Line. I think they are going to put back a lot of spec in the my 23 model R Line.</p>

    <p>Ordered Tiguan R Line with some extras mid July 2021, given October as delivery, then Nov, then a big jump to April – Now 3rd June. Build week 13 confirmed (end of march) so will wait and see. I’ve ordered through a broker whilst a good deal the true cost is time! Fingers crossed for everyone waiting patiently.</p>

    I ordered my Tiguan R Line 2.0 150 4MOTION DSG with panoramic sunroof and full size spare as extras on the 05/05/21  I took delivery of it on 29/11/21 so around 7 months. I actually went in person to the dealership to ask when delivery was, I was also told when there I was looking at Feb 2022 for delivery … then 2 weeks later I had the call to say it was on its way! I think it’s anyones guess, I was told they are bottle necking at the factory then being shipped over once chips are available. I got mine quick by the look of it and it felt like ages. I had a manual kuga which I owned and decided to join motability as my son is disabled. However I have a hip and knee problem hence changing to an auto. Take a look on listers new in stock vehicles you can change to if they are still on the scheme instead of waiting however as the Tiguan has been removed you won’t be able to cancel and re-order unless it’s something on the scheme currently as I asked this waiting for mine, but so glad I stuck it out as my car turned up a few weeks later.

    Hi James

    You gotta laugh or you’d cry but looks like the dealer got it right the first time being September as I’m sure they never said what year.🤔

    If you have a car that’s suitable for now I would stick it out waiting because the AP’s now are ridiculous! (For cancelling and re-ordering) For a basic life golf is almost the same AP I paid for the Tiguan. It’s definitely worth the wait.  I’m pleasantly surprised by the infotainment system it’s so luxurious 10x nicer than the new ford kuga in every aspect!

    Let’s hope the latest ship fire containing VW, Porches etc are not going to delay things further. What happens if my pip claim ends before I get my car? Do I get my money back?
