Anyone ordered a new car recently?

Off on long term sick at the moment and decided to do some retail therapy and order a new car. A new Corsa GS Line.

6 months minimum until delivery!

Anyone else had the same?

Hope you're on the right road to recovery.
I can remember JJ posting a few months ago that he had placed an order for a new car with a similar lead time if not longer.

Global chip shortage, not the fried version.

Certain types of chips are unavailable and most cars use the same ones.   Better off buying a car from stock.  Might not be exactly what you want but can always get seats etc swapped and get it in a week or 2

Someone at work has ordered a Mini and his time of delivery has been put back by several months several times.

Think itíll close to a year between ordering it and receiving it - if it is t delayed any furtherÖ

I have ordered a Cupra Born. Six months minimum. Annoying thing is that they have some in the dealer as stock. Cannot work it out!

Not car, but bike. Picked it up from the dealer within a week as it was already sat in the showroom.

Depends whether you're buying from stock, or buying a build slot.

I heard the chip thing is being resolved in the next couple of months?

A colleague got a brand new Vauxhall Mokka on Thursday after their previous lease was about to end.

Ordered my new Vauxhall Grandland Ultimate back on 2nd feb, its still not gone into production yet, I have been told to expect a full year from order until delivery.

Vauxhall give you daily updates of where it is in the factory, currently I have been allocated a VIN number but its not even in production, which will be 12 weeks + and extra 4 weeks as its an Ultimate + 10 weeks as its an automatic, hence delivery around Fenruary at the earlier I have been told.

Its a fucking joke as the chip shortage is pretty much back to normal now.

debatable

yeah but brand new cars. I guess because it makes you feel good, and for peace of mind warranty.

or you are in PCP or whatever and the cost to replace isn't a big wedge in one go

My last 6 cars have been brand new and they are all better than any used car I have had. Never had a single failure or breakdown with any. HTH.

My current car is on PCP and had a year to go, so i thought i would trade it in earlier as there would be more equity on it. There was £1500 equity, i put down £750 and i because i work for the feds got another £1500 off.

None of my type in stock at the moment so have to wait for it to be built, unless they can stock match it from an order that has fallen through.

This was my hope as the sister in law got a brand new Vauxhall Crossland in January and managed to get a fallen through order and she had a brand new unregistered car on her doorstep in 3 weeks. She couldnt choose the colour as she wanted blue but got grey, she was happy with that though.

I was not so luckiy.
