The delays are awful and the not knowing, I ordered mine first week in May, was looking at the VW allspace but they quoted me a longer delivery time and I have the Tiguan atm but needed 7 seats.
Never even mentioned a chip shortage when ordering...
I have come to the idea of not getting my car this year either and will be getting it hopefully beginning of 2022.

The waiting around from March must be increasingly frustrating!! I'm moaning and I ordered 2 months after you!! I hope you do get your car soon 😊 xx
I think they should have warned you at the time of ordering yours. I ordered mine 6th April and apparently my car wasn’t affected by the shortage and it only held up by the transportation side of it. But after I ordered mine, I had then read about the shortage and all the problems etc. Speaking to my dealer when I was waiting on mine they told me that the waiting times had shot up so surely you should have been informed 🤷🏼‍♂️

Seat are paying for my service as it was due after I should have had the car. Also he did mention some sort of compensation but he was unclear as he wouldn’t know until closer to the time.
When I ordered in July, i wasnt told at all about the delays and I should have the car in August, when I questioned the manager before the service he said that they had no idea about the delays, which i do not believe a word he said 🙈😂

We ordered an Excellence to replace the Ateca we have on PCP at the moment, it was ordered on 3rd July. Its part built according to Seat, waiting on Semiconductors.

Im getting increasingly annoyed with the wait. The dealership promised a one month delivery time when we ordered, and now trying to talk to anyone there is impossible. Are all manufacturers expereincing similar problems or just Seat and the Volkswagon Group ?

It's a worldwide problem and it's getting worse. No sign of change well into 2022. All manufacturers are affected.

Best choice you have is to buy the car at the end of its PCP. It will be worth far more than you pay for it. Prices of S/H cars are crazy. I have a March 2017 Excellence and paid 30k new. I have just been offered 23K for it.

I ordered my Ateca on July 7 and was told 12-16 weeks wait. Since then the main dealer has not been in contact once, even though they said they would regular update me with progress. I called them last month and they couldn't tell me anything, except that it would probably be the new year and not early new year! They said I could have my deposit back if I didn't want to wait that long. They didn't seem that bothered to be honest.

I ordered early May and it was due September. I think there is very little chance of me receiving my car this year now so I've given up hoping. Anything earlier than February will be a bonus. I am worried that the car was physically built in August but probably won't be driven until 5/6 months later. Also annoying if it's Jan as I will miss out on the new plate when I should of had the new one in sept. I think every Seat garage is the same very little info and trying not to contact clients.

Well, they told me that the car would be late august, and when I questioned them about the delay last month and they denied they knew about it! Even though it had been in the news ( after looking on here) . The manager did say in the end that they cant put a date. But now mine is moving so Im happy 😂🙈

For the benefit of others - my Ateca ordered 15/10/21 has now been given an arrival date at the dealer of 28/01/22.

Obviously no idea if that will materilaise but thought the info might be of interest to others!
