Re: New car ordered

The countdown continues, and I’m still waiting. I would normally chase things up, but I thought this time I’d hold off on doing so, just to see what happens. I shouldn’t have to do all this myself. Even past purchases with VW (including two that went wrong) have been better than this. I’m finding t...

Re: New car ordered

Is it worth pressing them for a (fully insured) loan car until delivery, particularly if you have written/email evidence of the original delivery expectations? They must have something, even if it's on their used car lot? I'm sure this would allow you to be less severe in your feedback assessment! ...

You will! I dealt with Kate at Lookers Colchester, helpful, courteous and funny!
We didn't use Lookers, another un-named dealer not too many miles to the East!

Re: New car ordered

Not overly impressed with our sales guy either - seems he fed us crap to get the sale knowing they couldn’t deliver in time and now we just keep getting the same abrupt email updates. We made it very clear we needed a car by the end of June and was assured it wouldn’t be a problem, never failed to d...

Re: T3 MPG PERFORMANCE

Very promising figures - my wife only drives around 15 miles a day hence the move away from a diesel to a MY2020 T3 manual. if she can achieve low 40's mpg we'll be very happy.....

Re: T3 MPG PERFORMANCE

That’s good to hear, was a bit of a concern for us leaving the good mpg of our Tiguan (48mpg average morning ver 17000 miles)

Insurance cost

Even though we don’t take delivery of out XC40 for another 4 weeks (hopefully, as long as dealer gets their finger out!) I thought I’d best get an insurance quote in advance as my wife has had a few claims over the last 3 years Very surprised that the cost is under half the price we are currently pa...

The On Call is a standard feature now, just for anyone else looking so won't be removed by a leasing company.
I think certain leasing companies will remove some of the functionality - they did with my last company car (Mercedes Benz) through Lex Autolease

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Just had an email to day that our delivery date has slipped by another 2 days! Starting to get a bit pee’d off now as were promised end of June delivery as were on a deadline - now going to have to pay to get a hire car in the interim. Everyone else’s deliveries seem to be coming forward except ours!
