Some garages do not even know what their Quarter 2 allocation is yet. So they have only had their 2 to 5 vehicles for Q1.

They keep being told that they will know their Q2 allocation soon,

They are also being told they do not know what the remainder of the years allocation will be (if any).

Interestingly other models are the same (Ignis, Swift and some Vitaras).

Some of the UK quarterly update meetings from Suzuki have been changed from face-to-face to short dial in sessions, probably so they do not have to face irate dealers in the flesh.

Does sound like its going from bad to worse, when I started this topic I had thought things would improve. Looks like I better hope my current car RX8 doesn't need a re-build in the next 2 years now!
It does seem strange how Suzuki GB don't seem to know how many getting and how Suzuki have got it so wrong on demand, never known not being able to get a new car/motorbike a few months after launch. Understand if it was something super pricy/special like super cars sell out before being released but were are talking about a Jimny!

I expect over night things will suddenly change im hoping, Suzuki you would think see all these forums and stuff on the internet and would want to cash in! All I am seeing is parts and modifications being made to lol but no cars to put on!

I hope the situation improves soon especially for those who have been promised and put down money!
Thanks
Lee.

I've decided the only possible thing to do is redefine my expectations.

So I'm now looking forward to my Jimny being an 'Instant Classic' - when it arrives in 2025!

I wonder if it's all just part of the insidious dastardly master-plan to get us all used to the idea of sharing car ownership, before full autonomy comes in . . . if that's so, if you get yours before I get mine, can I at least have a go in it please! :S

Quite honestly if I had put money on a new one by now I would have been having strong words with my dealer to get me a tidy late model gen3 and I wouldn't be being very polite about it either.

Not being very polite about it what would that achieve ?

issue is there are not many decent used Jimny's either the people who usually trade them in are only swapping for Jimny's usually.

I think between all the Suzuki approved used dealers there are about 30 in total for sale.

we cant get many of those either :(

Given some of the stories that are filtering back here even accounting for a few being somewhat apocryphal there seem to be a goodly number of dealer experiences that are leaving customers rather frustrated and if I were one of those people I sure that frustration would show.
