Another delay

Post by jamesg » Fri Jul 05, 2019 12:57 pm

Just on for a rant :D

My original delivery date was 1st July, then 8th July and now they're saying we'll contact you on the 12th with a date. It seems the closer it gets the further away it becomes lol

Ah well, back to the foreign language you tube videos for me.

Factory build btw

Me three. Given a date of 26th July after ordering on 18th May. I've requested an update. The Dealer said he was making an update request of Jaguar and said he would get an answer in 24 hours.

That was five days ago and not a word.

Thing is, I'm without a car now and arranged to borrow one until 26th July. I will be well and truly screwed if they come back with a later date, as in, months later.

Apparently our local Inchcape has a Jaguar Event this weekend, with special offers etc. The question is - have they any cars to sell?? Our new Evoque is still not made, after 4 months. Do JLR actually build any vehicles theses days???

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 car to be from a first production line where everyone is still trying to find their feet?
It's not totally new, they used to build Land Rovers there; - and Land Rovers have such a sterling reputation for reliability!
And here's me thinking I was buying British...

I’m sure that the XE is made here in uk, and the Slovak plant is for the LR discovery, as it’s their best seller (+ 20k units per year).Im waiting for a XE and was told mine would be built in Coventry...by jaguar UK, EST mid July.

@Alanqs, where did you get this info that the XE will be made in Slovakia?
I've seen the build sheet for the one I have on order, and it clearly states Castle Bromwich. That's in Birmingham, UK.
