    New Qashqai - Delays

    Just popped into the dealer to make sure everything was in order with my second drivers details. While I was there I asked if we were still on for early/mid-April delivery, apparently not

    He has 9 new Qashqais on order with originally quoted delivery dates running from the first week of March onwards, when he checked mine on the system it now shows that all 9 are due for delivery on April 28th

    I asked if there was liable to be any change in the date, he said yes, but unfortunately it would probably for the worse!.

    Just found a post on one of the Qashqai forums from a Nissan paint team leader, seems if you want one in Flame Red it will be at least May or probably June before you'll see one!.

    I live a short drive from the Nissan factory near Washington, and they have quite a few of them in the compounds at the rear of the factory. Did not get close enough to see certain colours but white and grays / blues seem to be the most common.

    When I ordered my original Qashqai the waiting list was 12-15 weeks, it's hard when there are delays, but it is a good sign that the new Qashqai is selling well.

    Luckily if you already have a Motability car, Motability will let you extend your current contract until your new car is ready.

    Indeed, Motability extended my lease about two/three weeks ago when I was given the revised mid-April date . . . . . they extended it to the end of April!, cutting it a bit close I think!.

    I'll give it until the beginning of April and see where it stands then.

    On the other hand .... every time I see the car I have a horrible feeling I've made the wrong choice!. I know it's probably that after 5 years I've gotten very used to my CRV and the amount of space it gives us but it's an annoying little niggle that won't go away

    Hi all avid reader of the forum but this made me join and make a post

    Since January ive been considering a car, its a massive undertaking and commitment at moment ive an old banger which is costing more than loosing my DLA award
    The dealer was great he went through process with me etc everything fine until yesterday i gave him my paperwork and my licence and chose a accenta premium.
    Last week we was looking 6-8 weeks, in fact i was told the longest wait would be for motability paperwork to be sorted.
    Yesterday he submitted everything and shock horror told 24 of April delivery

    Today just had a phone call, Motability have accepted me on the scheme but bad news is and this the dealer assures me is all down to Motability
    You cannot have a unregistered car in the pipeline or carpark, each and every car now has to be factory made to order and the bad news is as its a Motability order they and only they decide when the factory will build so ive currently no anticipated delivery date of any kind
    Ive paid my deposit in cash so im sort of stuffed now

    wiered as just last month Nissan was bragging they were producing a qashqai every 60 seconds

    Is there a fault then or a reason for Nissan to suddenly slow or delay these cars?

    In all the years I've been with Motability, I've never had to pay a deposit up front! I've only paid my deposit on picking up the car.

    I was suprised as it goes but to be fair it has to be paid at some point and the Vauxhall dealer also did mention a part deposit as it goes
