I’m having to cancel an order for a Volvo XC40 R Design Pro in Glacier Silver which is due to be delivered in 4 weeks. Just wondered if anyone interested in taking the order over. It does have a few extras – panoramic sunroof, rear camera & sensors and Android/Apple car play.

Is the model a Recharge T5? If so, I would be very interested. Do you want to DM me?July 27, 2021 at 6:19 pm #160008Rowls1958

What a fantastic use for the forum. How nice that in the current climate of extremely long waits for most cars one forum member can help out another. Well done Rowls1958. Someone on another thread has just cancelled a Tiguan order, due September. I bet a few on here would have liked to have taken that one as well!July 27, 2021 at 8:43 pm #160021Paul
Yep nice one.Would also be good if manufacturers also joined forums to let people know of any cancellations and vehicles in stock due to customers cancelling/change of mind etc.July 27, 2021 at 9:07 pm #160022Glos GuyParticipant

Yes, it would be fantastic and one or two have done something similar, but for cars with long lead times I guess that dealers can sell them to private buyers and make a lot more profit than shifting to another Motability customer, as VW is doing. Frustrating for us but, as they say, that’s business!July 27, 2021 at 9:11 pm #160023
This is potentially a great opportunity.
We put our order in on 01/06, and do not have a delivery dat as yet. My dealer has indicated it could be 30/11, but really has no clue.
it may cost more in AP, but it’s worth it, as we currently have a diesel Golf…July 28, 2021 at 1:21 pm #160065
Just checking to see if you spoken to Motability to see if it’s possible for me to take on your new car delivery?
Please can you get in touch to discuss.
Many thanks.July 28, 2021 at 6:41 pm #160079Rowls1958
Hi, really sorry but got a few family issues to sort out, will need a few days but will definitely get back to you shortly. I haven’t had the chance to speak to Motability but perhaps someone can advise if this has been done before ?July 28, 2021 at 8:11 pm #160082
Thank you for getting back to me – much appreciated.
I will let you contact Motability to identify if this is do-able.
If you could let me know, that will be great.August 11, 2021 at 7:55 am #161319
Is your car arriving in a week or so?
Do you ever contact Motability?
Have you have decided to take the car after all?
An update from you would have been good manners if nothing else…August 12, 2021 at 8:43 am #161500Rowls1958
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Hi sorry, have had urgent family matters to attend to which has meant travelling abroad. To be honest it is slightly more important than a car. I did contact Motability but I still have not had a response from them. I will chase them up. I’m told the car should be arriving second week of September now.</p>August 12, 2021 at 8:03 pm #161598
No problem – thank you for keeping me updated – much appreciated. Urgent family matters do take priority over cars.
Please let me know what Motability have to say when they get back to you.August 13, 2021 at 5:58 am #161620John

<p style=”text-align: left;”>Rowls1958…Maybe if you post a message with the words ‘electric’ ‘EV’or ‘fossil fuel’ you may get an instant reply which seems quicker than @option</p>August 17, 2021 at 4:10 pm #162210
I have sent an email to your email address. If you did not receive it, please post on this thread again…August 18, 2021 at 5:20 pm #162274Kenny
@AndyDStone if the other gent is no longer interested, then I very likely will be. 👍August 18, 2021 at 5:30 pm #162276
@Kenny – Just waiting for @Rowls1958 to confirm with the dealer that they are happy for me to take his new car order. However, if this deal falls through, then I will post on this forum.
