Sooo...

Ordered a Gen 4 SZ5 Auto in white from my local dealer in April this year. £200 refundable deposit and a handwritten receipt. Was told that it was not possible to guarantee a delivery time but should be Sept/Oct 2019.

Have not heard from them since.

I rang yesterday for an update.

They have no idea when the car will land and the salesman “quietly” suggested that it would not be this year ie. 2019

He also said that they are now not able to order an Jimny’s at the moment.

(I’m still not convinced that a factory order went in for mine. Think they were hoping to find one for me from Group allocation).

Anyone had a similar experience?

Anyone know if I am wasting my time waiting for a Jimny and should choose something else?

My current car PCP deal runs until Feb 2020

Cheers

Rick

It seems to be possible if you put the leg work in to obtain a Jimny fairly quickly if you can be flexible about what you want and where you get it from.

They definitely didn't place a factory order, no dealers are able to due to the low supply. Each dealer gets an allocation of X number cars (1-4 I believe, depending on dealer size) per quarter, they don't get to specify colour, trim or gearbox. Each dealer can choose how they want to handle the allocation, although typically most seem to be offering cars according to when people expressed an interest. If person #1 on the list doesn't want it, they offer it to the next person.

You can either do the leg work, contacting as many dealers as possible to try and get the exact spec you want, or wait with your current dealer and accept a car when you get offered one.

Cheers for the intel

I wish they had explained it to me like that when I “ordered” back in April.

I was on the brink of getting my deposit back after 10 months of waiting.......deposit placed in Sept 2018...car arriver end of June 2019. However I am soooooo happy I stayed with it. I absolutely love the thing and find myself "needing" to pop out to get something just so I can go for a drive. My advice.... wait as long as it takes. It really is worth it.

Wow, wish I could find an extra £30k down the back of the sofa whenever my patience runs out! :blink:

Got a 9% discount with Carwow and 5yrs interest free....

Also 5yr warranty, 3yr service and 5yr roadside

Residuals strong and Brexit could cause a price hike.

Everything crossed
