Apparently I was 7th in the waiting list of those who placed a deposit. The person in front of me only wants a black one so I moved up one place. The dealer has had 8 allocated this year and had 3 so far. The next 3 are due in...... well depending on who says what...June to August.

if yours was 7th you would get it in the last quarter of the year unless more people cancelled.

they are the same as us, 2 per quarter of the year they wont come before that.

I have been told mine is definitely going to be here by August. The dealer said that no one had ordered a Kenetic Yellow and some only wanted a SZ4 or Auto..... so maybe I have jumped a little further than I know about. I will continue to wait and just watch more You Tube videos of others enjoying theirs......... vicarious ownership!!

Certainly seems like no dealer or deposit or known vehicle location is consistent at all. You would think this day and age Suzuki UK would know exactly how many can be made and spec and we would all know if can order or not to say 18months is mental.
I did when first saw a new Jimny coming out sorta think, they not be that popular as older one is like a niche market!
I am just hoping my current car lasts until these are more available!

I have a theory about all of this. It's just a personal theory, though, and isn't backed by any particular facts.

My suspicion is that, due to global demand, instead of building cars in response to orders from each region, the factory is just churning out whatever they can based on the component sets they can get from the various suppliers. When they have enough completed units, they're loaded on to a ship and off they go. The importer doesn't get a say in it, it's just whatever becomes available.

Sounds a bit ridiculous for a nation usually so regimented in JIT production methodologies, but it's the only scenario I can think that explains why Suzuki GB doesn't know what cars they're getting or where they are.

Having spoken to several dealers..... I think you are right. None of the dealers have a choice of colour/spec/auto/manual etc. They are very much given what is available. I have no beef with the dealers for that as its something they cannot control. What does grind my gears is the fact that they happily took deposits on cars and spec and colours and led customers to think that would have a car they wanted in a defined period of time. If I had been told the wait would be up to a year and I may not get the first choice colour...... I would have still placed a deposit but would have not been left frustrated now not knowing what the hell is going on!!

When i "expressed an interest", on 12 th. March, I was told, eight to twelve months, with no choice of spec. If I had wanted to specify, they said that they were not able to give me any idea of a delivery date.
I am still astounded that, after expecting to wait eight to twelve months, I drove my new Jimny out of the Dealership on 23 April.
I was told that each salesperson (three of them), had their own lists of interested, potential buyers, and assume that each had a vehicle allocated in rotation, and they would work down their list until a buyer was found.

What size of a pool do dealerships have to exchange their allocation? Is it countrywide or just regional?

I've been top of the waiting list for a number of months and although I was previously told there was nothing coming in before January, they are hoping to get me a jimny sooner...

The dealer is supposed to get eight per year, but I believe they are part of a group that has other branches which I believe get more.

The reason the waiting list is so variable is that people have registered at multiple dealers. When one person gets a Jimny this suddenly removes a person from 5 other dealer lists so the list can evaporate leaving someone far down the list suddenly offered one.

If someone was to remove duplicate registrations on the lists I reckon it's 6 months long , not a year to 18 months. However having said that there is all the signs of no allocation at all this coming quarter

Thanks, another dealer quoted an allocation of four per year and a waiting list indicating an 18 month wait.

I had to pay a 1k deposit, so I don't know how people are getting on multiple waiting list.

I think if yours comes early it's most likely because someone else couldn't get the funds together to make the purchase.
