  • 3 months for a factory order???

    My dealer tells me because my car will be a factory order it will take 3 months to arrive. Why the long wait? Do vauxhall not have stocks of these cars with various different specs surely they are churning out these cars everyday of the week my car will have white paint,infinity sound,afl lights,climate,tinted rear windows,nav,leather,aero pack. But was willing to be flexible but was told there was not much on the system.

    Sound about right, this is just an estimate until the order gets into the production queue you will not get a definite date. Could be quicker.

    Most car companies, manufacture cars to requirements else wasted stock, money laying around in fields, etc

      Do dealers not have access to other dealers unsold stock as well as vauxhall a own stock? They wouldn't even show me what was available even after I asked to see if there was a car close to my chosen options.

        Most stock new cars will only have certain specs from cancelled orders.

        Car manufacturers (most of them at the least) build to order.. The days of churning out cars with no buyers is dead.. As that's one of the reasons manufacturers have gone bust before

            I was told a factory order would have been 8-9weeks, but Astons had a car with the spec I wanted in stock

              Once the order is in the system your estimate will probably change for the better. As a few others on here will tell you, those that ordered when the order books first opened had a long wait. I ordered just after 6th march when the prices were out and took delivery at the end of july, that was a killer lol

                I think they just give them-self room to play with. I ordered on the 31st march and it was delivered to the garage Friday

                          3 months is nothing. When I ordered my Chevette HS back in April 1978, I had to wait until May 1979 for delivery!! AND it was worth the wait.
                          The GTC VXR is nothing like it but is still a great car to drive. It does take about 5k to fully loosen up and get the best out of it. Be happy it isn't a longer wait and you WILL be pleased with the car!! Guaranteed!!!
