Re: Another delay

Well, the "Solutions Executive" contacted me today and after admitting they didn't represent the factory but mainly dealt with post purchase issues, at least confirmed that the build would start in July for late August/early September delivery and I couldn't/shouldn't have been given a date of 26th ...

Re: Another delay

Jaguar came back to me today to say that a "Solutions Executive" will contact me in the next 3 working days to discuss my situation. Interestingly, in both e-mails apart from solutions they made no response of any sort to any of my observations or questions, in other words, they said nothing. Politi...

Re: Another delay

Yes, Hillington. I went in on 11th May since I was out that direction, talked to a salesman and for some reason he introduced me to the Sales Manager, don't know why. At that stage it was a mildly interested enquiry and I said I'd be coming out on the 25th May for a serious look though I did drop th...

Re: Another delay

Thanks for the outrage at my Dealer gents but at worst, getting into the pool delayed things by a week and a bit. My order was placed well over 7 weeks ago. Like I said, perhaps my salesman is a "Walter Mitty" type but I think I might have a word with the Sales Manager at Taggarts especially when Ja...

Re: Another delay

Jaguar have replied to me saying nothing about Slovakia, but wanting my order number and form so they can progress it which might include raising my concerns with the Solutions Executive Team (whatever they are). Since they were silent, I asked them about Slovakia again, as well.

Re: Another delay

I've written to Jaguar customer relations. Let's see if I get an honest reply.

Re: Another delay

I would assume there is some kind of cut-off date for orders to be built in Slovakia and mine is on the wrong side of that date. Although I ordered it on 18th May, it wasn't accepted by Jaguar into the build list until two weeks later. I can only assume that was too late and Jaguar didn't have the h...

Re: Another delay

The Dealer told me this morning when I finally got hold of him for my week late update. No new cars will now be built in the UK and since mine hadn't started it's build, it's coming from Slovakia.

If it's not true, that's a hell of a whopper for the Dealer to use as an excuse for late delivery.

Re: Another delay

The expected "hitting the fan" has happened. Not 26th July, sometime in September now. Like they didn't suspect that in the first place. But it gets worse. All XE models will now be made in Slovakia. New production line, new equipment (or worse, old stuff adapted). New workers. Who wants their new c...
