My test drive was scheduled today. I didn't received any call from the salesman, who attended me & he even did not picked my call (I called only once).

Left a SMS & got a prompt reply that I will called back by his team member. A person called me & explained the difficulties in organizing one as promised. He stays non-committal on the confirmed date for test drive..adds that he too is dependent on some other persons commitment. Hhmmm ......going straight to the Verna thread

Lightbulb Re: Volkswagen Vento Delays and delivery

So apparently my vehicle has been billed by VW to the dealer and is expected to land at stockyard tomorrow. Now i am in a last minute mad rush to beg borrow on the finances.

Though my auto loan application has been logged in, i am trying to raise some capital from within the family so that i dont have to pay astronomical interest to the Bank.

The dealership also agreed on the insurance to be done by Tata AIG separately. Seems i will miss my delivery deadline by a week because of all these finance issues.

Not surprising I have never heard of Vento being available at your place for a test drive. Even the VW site does give an option to book a test drive for the Vento (but allows for the Polo). The dealerships always asked me to come to the showroom and take a test drive. I never had a problem at any of the showrooms in Bangalore, for that matter. I was given a test drive every time I asked for it.

Some more negativity...but with relief and FYI for those who are suffering!

Quoting a reply I got from the Vento Official review thread.

Well, PAVAN_ I did just that.

I got the booking amount refund INR 75000 for my TDI HighLine Shadow Blue cancellation. No 5-months interest paid, yet.
As usual, they missed the first date committed for the refund cheque and subsequently didn't reply to my email where I threatened to escalate this matter.

But shockingly, got a call + SMS + email after the 5-day delay. Got the delayed cheque, deposited and just about managed to get my T-Jet+ delivered. Good car!

My demand for interest got the foll. exchange:
CRE: Sir, but it will go from my pocket
Me: Were you personally selling me the car?
CRE: Ummm...pause...no sir, but it will go from KSM's pocket...

I give her an incredulous look and walk on.
This is KSM Motors, Chembur, Mumbai. Bad experience.

So, on to the follow-up for the interest then. Will update if I do get it.

This is unbelievable but true. I just got a call from the dealership that my TDI Highline is in transit and they can invoice it this month itself, if my finances are ready. It would be a record of sorts if I get it as promised in less than a month
will keep you posted

@battada, Congratulations! and that's some sweet news to me - I booked a Shadow Blue HL TDI around the same time frame as you have done, hopefully the good luck will be extended to me as well . May I know the color of your choice?

Hullo all Vento victims,

Does anyone here have any contact info for VW corporate?

I'm being stone-walled by VW Palace cross, Bangalore after a 3 month wait for a TDI high-line. I got some IT department chaps to make a menacing phone call, still no response.

I need to take this to the next level pronto. Please do let me know if anyone has had any success with VW corporate.

Candy white. In fact I was going to go for the shadow blue, but the sales guy discouraged me saying it was going to take a lot of time and they could not provide a guaranteed time frame

I booked a shadow blue HL TDI exactly a month ago, was just informed that allotment is done and the car is in transit - it should reach me in a week to 10 days. It appears that the delivery issues are things of the past and all is well now; a waiting period of 40-45 days is not that bad (and I was given a longer time frame for 6-8 months for the shadow blue. Had I opted for a different color, who knows, I might have received the car already). Good job VW, hope they keep my party rolling
