Came across this interesting article, published a few months ago, on delays to car orders.
That seems rather vague, I wonder if it could be something to do with allocation of cars for the UK market perhaps, probably not much consolation but I’m having no luck with VW UK myself with my car, even though it’s been built.
Newbie1892, from what I gather, the waiting time for a lot of VW’ models is around the 20 week mark, however in my case, Golf mk8, it’s supposed to be around 12/13 weeks, however I just received an email from the guy dealing with my order and he says there “appears to be a delay on Golfs leaving the factory”, whether that is effecting orders of the Sharan and other VW models I don’t know, but it’s a possibility.
Regarding dealers, I do think it’s a good idea to contact them, like you, my local dealership is not very forthcoming with info, so, I think it’s a good idea to drop them an email every 2/3 weeks to enquire how things are going, it lets them know you’re on the ball.
I ordered an VW Golf 8 on the 2nd July, 3rd September had a stage 5a notification, car built and left the factory, no more updates since then, nothing, contacted the VW dealership, yesterday, no reply yet, so no idea what’s happening. My currant car (VW MK 7.5 Golf) took exactly 13 weeks, looks like new order will take at least 15, and that’s assuming it arrives in UK next, however I’m not going to hold my breath!.

Thanks for the reply Peter, and to everybody else who replied, from what everybody is saying i’m wondering if 13 weeks might be a minimum wait. Peter as the saying goes, “good things come to those who wait”, I will keep telling myself this!, hope the time doesn’t drag for you too much!.
Just wondering what others experiences are with waiting times for the mk7 Volkswagen Golf as i’m just about to order a Golf 1.4 tsi SE Navigation. Our local dealer said the waiting time was 13 weeks, does anybody know if that is likely to be accurate?.
