Interesting....delivery times seem very unpredictable. The spreadsheet might shed light on the process at some point?

My order of July 2nd was built in schedule (wk38), but told today it's still awaiting semiconductors and no sign of when it will be finished...

Really pleased the waiting game is nearly over for you though - there's hope for us all yet!

I think all the spreadsheet can currently do is illustrate the absolute chaos in Zwickau at the moment. Which I feel it does reasonably succinctly 😀

I ordered my car in early July, and was told at the time that it should be delivered in mid - to late October.
I’ve just ( November 22nd) been told that it has now been built and should be with me in 4-6 weeks 🤞🤞🤞🤞
The funny thing is that about 10 days ago the dealer emailed me to say that he didn’t know when it was due to be built!

I think that’s because the dealers aren’t actually told when the vehicle goes into actually be built - “there’s no status code for it” is how it was described to me.

There is however a status code for “in transit from factory” and of course it must have been built to be in transit!

So your experience makes sense, even if the process itself doesn’t make much sense 😀

Thats what I found out today too. My order is still status 20 and my dealer said the next status is 30 and that should come with a VIN number to indicate build is complete. I guess dealers can't find out what's happening unless they contact the factory directly.

That’s my understanding too (they have to phone the factory, apparently, which I’m not sure I believe but 🤷‍♂️)

Its a VW internal call centre in Leeds that dealers call. This call centre have all details on relevant orders at whichever factory the vehicle is being built at. As it was this call centre that told my dealer my Tour was in the paintshop which was last Friday morning.

That sounds much more plausible thanks Newfie.

Though you’d think VW UK could just make the info available electronically. I’ve had Amazon deliveries better tracked than this vehicle 😂

i agree but for some reason VW like to p*** customers off.

A sensational video on youtube with a clickbait title with uppercase emphasis.

A pinch of salt, if you please :D
