Just had an update from the dealership and been given build week 30 (23.07.18)!!!

I'm hoping it changes in the coming weeks as I have seen others who ordered around a similar time (mid January) with much sooner build weeks. Any hope people?

It's looking like baby #3 may be delivered before the Kodiaq! 馃檮

It was suggested that there has been a shortage of the 1.4 engines. Anyone any the wiser?

Where abouts are you?

We ordered (in the UK) late jan and subject to confirmation (build status 20) expect build next week and arrival late March/early April.

I also read references to 1.4 engine shortages but no mention of this by dealer.

Dealer is part of a fairly large chain so maybe they get allocated slots?

I'm in Manchester but the car is via carwow from Rochdale Skoda (RRG so another large group). Just hoping that it is a provisional date and there is room for change.

Just been to my local dealer and they quoted 4 months...and looking likely to get longer. As a matter of interest the Karoq is on 6 month delivery due to "3 times the interest".

I wouldn't wait 2 weeks for a Ford or Poxall.

Just ordered and was originally quoted 20wks. With the actual order going on system it's BW17 (w/c 23/04/18) - so a little earlier than expected but not much.

We'll see how it pans out. But it is a long wait! Sadly nothing matched closed to the spec.

Well it looks like you guys who said it would be moved forward were right!

Update from the dealer yesterday and the build week has moved from 30 to 14 so a big difference....

Looking at late April, early may delivery now. Making me twitchy about colour choice now though as I saw a white one the other day in Manchester and it looked great. I'm not a big car washer though....

That's a super movement! Exciting times. :D

Grats! Mine is going up...I mean just because I wanted a spoiler shouldn't make it a long build period, surely?

I'm about to order, and had been hoping to also get the current 拢1000 free fuel offer. However, the T&C say that to qualify, the car needs to be handed over by 30/6/18 - so only 17 or 18 weeks from now....!

Not my problem, that's their problem. If I don't get mine by that date they'll have to give me it some other way.

I didn't realise it, looks like I'll need to give my dealership a call.

Any t&c's which track their performance (e.g. Something totally out of our hands) is dubious to me. Like playing Russian Roulette, a fool would sign up to that IMO - it may turn out that I am such a fool...

I qualify because my dealer said he would give me one. Made no mention of that "deal" and no caveats, same goes for the breakdown assistance, free servicing, 拢2k off etc. It may be in the small print somewhere, of which I have left a message. I guess I am a good 1 month under the end of deal date, but, still miffed I was totally unaware of any stipulations.
