Just curious whether anyone else has been advised their car is built but is delayed as it's sitting around waiting for the touchscreen? Ordered 13th Feb, GT Line, Pearl, Panoramic, Leather, Visio and Elec tailgate with open & go. Been given the runaround quite a bit as was promised pre April registration, but now looking at 3rd week in April for delivery, maybe!

Not seen any other member of this forum that's been told that as a reason for delay, I don't recall seeing any posts on the French forums I look at either. January orders are starting to be delivered now so your GT-Line February order is probably right for a April delivery.

Thanks Fontie. Not sure what to believe any more as I can't seem to get a straight answer from my dealer. He actually called me the other day and offered me my deposit back...didn't know what to do. Watched loads of reviews and kept coming back to the 3008. Never had a Peugeot before and am a bit disheartened by the experience so far :(

Its very annoying not knowing the exact delivery date I know, all I can say is its worth the wait, I ordered mine January 10 and took delivery March 31. you will have to be Patient.

To all those expressing 'disappointment' in Peugeot -
Cancel your order and I can get mine quicker.
Peugeot's fault is producing a highly desirable car as opposed to the bland white goods from their competitors, plus a factory fire.

Totally agree. All good things come to those who wait. Patience is a virtue. Unfortunately we currently live in a world where everyone wants things immediately and has no ability to wait.

Couldn't agree more. And I am sure no one is having a dig specifically at this post. I only take issue with being given inaccurate information. If I was given a date in July I would be ok with it, just more a case of some miscommunication with information the dealer has been receiving then providing to the customer which has caused some doubt over whether they actually know the true status of the orders or not. In my circumstances it's been more of a broken promises situation which has left me feeling misled. I was just curious if the delay on the screens was actually a "thing" or if I was alone in this communication.

I do indeed, got it through a pm to Peugeot. They didn't have confirmation of it in built state, pending an update from the factory.
That's good, at least it has been ordered then :)

Maybe it has failed a quality control station on the build and needs some retro work. No idea how that factory works.

Not sure whether Peugeot and/or dealers just haven't a clue - hence the wide variety of reasons for delay- or shortage of key components could be true. My broker told me that the fire had affected mainly left hand Drive production but was going to check directly. Meanwhile,Would love to hear from those lucky people who've actually taken delivery.
Was it worth the wait and what do you love/dislike about your new car?
Solutions to tasks that people are likely to struggle with ( given the minimal knowledge from dealers) such as voice control sat nav would be really helpful

The fire certainly stopped Australian (RHD) deliveries, being delayed almost 6 months.
The biggest problem is demand from a manufacturer in decline, has taken off and caught them short of production capacity, compounded by the fire.
You would expect the LHD home market would be their priority initially in any case.
