    Delivery delay??

    Hi everyone

    I ordered the Astra SRI 150D sports hatch mid june as my company car and was given an initial delivery date of start of september.
    Ive had numerous delivery dates promised since then and still no car. The fleet manager at work is trying to find out whats going on but frankly hes about as much use as t*ts on a goldfish so thought one of you guys would have a better idea of what the problems are with delivery.

    Im getting worried that they will keep promising dates and then no car and before i know it its xmas!!!

    Hello Sarah, welcome....

    There are a lot of cars delayed especially VXR's....vauxhall had a problem with suppliers....and there has been a knock on effect...

    Yep, join the queue of people waiting for their SRi. Some people have been promised cars by November, others Feb 06.

    There are a lot of Astra;s delayed at the moment due to the amount of orders that have been received for the cars, basically Vauxhall/Opel cant keep up with the demand and unfortunately a lot of cars are suffering with delivery delays. If your Astra has been ordered with the optional stylepack then this is another reason for the delay as there has been a problem with the supply of bodykits which has further held up production.
