I think it is quite normal that you haven't received your Polo in 3 months. All dealerships are giving a commitment but none of them stand by it. I got mine after a near 4 month wait!

Polo 1.6 will be a very small proportion of those. I don't know why VW launches so many variants if they can't keep up with the demand.

I'm aware of these figures, here we are specific to the production and sales of Polo 1.6. These figures are combined for all variants of Polo.

I too have booked a Polo 1.6 on Sept 22nd and had a commitment of January 22nd delivery. But now the tone of mails and discussions with the dealer seem to indicate that Jan 22nd delivery wont happen. They are trying to manage by expectations by saying that a realistic date would be sometime in Feb.

Dont know why VW cant communicate facts about these delays. Sometimes the dealer says production is delayed since they want to time it for Jan deliveries since a Nov or Dec delivery is not preferred by Indians as a Jan delivery means it is a 2011 model and Dec is 2010 model and resale values gets affected. I have heard too from the dealer that they are focusing on delivering Fabia 1.6 which is a newer launch and cant provide engines to both the models.

Etios chances are getting better thanks to VW. Toyota must be loving it!!

Vow, this is exactly what the dealer told me. For once there is some consistency across their communication dept. And as you rightly say, VW might have left itself vulnerable to competition due to its inability to scale up and grab numbers in time. Who did their business plan by the way, it seems to have gone upside down.
