    Have VW gone to sleep?

    Hello everyone,

    Being disabled, Under the UK Motability scheme, I get a new car every three years.
    I ordered a new vehicle, a Touran SEL, on the 29th of May this year.

    Previously I have had to wait three months to get a new vehicle, presunably from Wolfsburg, Germany.

    It is now two and a half months since I placed the order and my Sales Rep. has heard nothing.
    I expected some delay because of the emissions farce but wasn't expecting zero communication.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem with VW?

    Thanks & Kindest Regards

    All car manufacturers are having a hard time at the moment with certain engine specifications due to the new WLTP testing procedures which have caused huge problems all over the world.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
