Re: Delivery Date

Post by Taff » Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:25 am

Had a call from the dealer to say that my car originally booked to be delivered 11/11/18 is now being delivered to dealership on 14/9/18. I ordered the car for an October delivery as I have a PCP on my current car that ends mid October and Im handing it back, dealer tells me that they can only hold the car for 21 days once its been delivered to them, A new Volvo directive apparently, so they are trying to force me to take the car on the 1st October while I still have the other car, anyone else had this issue.
Ordered XC40 D3 Inscription Automatic, Pine Grey, Charcoal Leather, Winter Pack, Rear Parking Camera, Tempra Spare Wheel. (Ordered 23/5/18)

That sounds like a dealer thing, i would be surprised if volvo was enforcing this. I would hold out as you have paid a deposit on the car and is sold to you. Unless of course they pay you the final pcp payment to take early.

Just as a side note my dealer had a FE when i ordered mine but was sold to customer who did not want delivery at that time, it had already been there 4 weeks and he just said it was marked as sold and would take delivery when the customer wanted it

Thanks, he says its a new directive from Volvo, I cannot take it before my current car gets returned anyway, I may send an email to someone in Volvo.

Great to hear everyone's getting cars. I am still waiting for an FE T5 ordered 5th March, was June, then August and now same date as you 17th Sept … fingers crossed!!
Interestingly I visited the dealer a few weeks ago. He was excited to show me an R design just off the transporter as I hadn't been in one since I ordered. Still like it, but had to point out the roof rails were different colours - driver side - black, passenger side - silver... so check the cars carefully when you get it..
