Default Anyone waiting a VERY LONG time for an dealer ordered car?

We ordered our Sportwagon TDI on May 10th. As of yesterday, our dealer still has no firm information from VWoA about when we can expect our car. They have shipped him spec cars for on the lot, and he was able to get another one that was ordered for a different customer, but is unable to get a commitment from VWoA on when we can expect our car (Red, Premium Package TDI Sportwagon).

Anyone else here have a similar experience trying to buy a VW?

jas,
you should contact member 3193, chris, members purchase through him from all over the country and fly in. he is located in philly, so you would be considered very close to him by tdiclub standards. here is a link to his thread in the for sale section, http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=288133 and also his contact information. good luck he should be able to accelerate your purchase.

Ditto on Chris 3193.

If not him, I would ask for a refund of some money. The 2012 IMO has lost some value since you ordered it.

I think your timing was unfortunate, as your order was placed most likely after the plant had stopped building '11s and before it started building '12s. I'm not sure when Mexico starts production for a new model year but I'd be inclined to count 6-8 weeks from then, maybe from early August. But that's a guess.

I ordered a '12 Golf two weeks ago and was told 6-8 weeks before it's at the dealer. I honestly feel that's a bit optimistic. But I'm not in any hurry.

You wont have to experience the huge depreciation of driving your car off the lot.

Just make sure you get them by 12/31/2011, and keep the business use as close to 100% as you can. 100% 168(k) bonus depreciation ftw!

The Golf will be 100% business, at least initially. I'm keeping my wagon so that's for personal use.
