yet to hear a word!

Have asked several times, in fact yesterday.

I was told that after the test drive of the LHD model (09/12/12 for me) I would be able to be given an idea.

Ho hum

I had email at the begining of October from Dacia so say my order had been accepted and then a few days later telling me my car was due to be delivered shortly and my dealer would be in touch. Delivery date on email was 31/12/2012. Checked on my account on Dacia website and it says delivery commencing March 2013, just hope it's January, can't wait !!

Has any one actually got a delivery date?

I just keep getting told the beginning of March, but that's a little wishy washy for me.

My car's MOT runs out 8th March, and I think it may need a shed load of work to get it through. Perfect timing, or just too late? Let's see.

Ordered mine back at launch from the local Renault Dealer - was advised mid Jan 2013 very enthusiastically when I asked back in October .... rang yesterday to enquire when I needed to come in and talk finance and was advised that they didn't know when it might be shipped. Needed the car to drive to Alps in Feb but questioning if I want it this side of the new 13 plate anyhow! Not ideal as I don't have a suitable car for the trip!!!!

I'm guessing March onwards at the moment, seems to be the consensus. Haven't heard anyone getting it before that yet?

I have to say I am really hacked off with the lack of information I am getting about when the car wil be delivered.

My current car is dying on me nd I need a concrete date so I can make plans. I could probably do without a car for 2 months work-wise (not ideal) but I need to know.

Not a peep from Dacia!

Shhh! Keep this under your hat. My Duster came into Port of Tyne on 21/12/2012 and will be at the dealer by 14/01/2013. I can then test drive my own vehicle and, if happy, complete the deal.

Blimey Chris! Excellent news.

When did you order it?

It probably helped that I placed my order online on 29th June 2012, the day after the order book opened.

Sadly I'm going to have to renounce my albeit brief membership of the forum as due to the lack of delivery date and the pressing need for a car that is both bigger than my wife's Fox and more reliable than my 12 year old Volvo - an alternative had to be sought! One pissed off dealer, one slightly disappointed me - one wife hacking about in a nice nearly new MPV! Car allowance will be saved to pay for a Patio and possibly fund an Impreza estate (if I can find a good one) at some point in 2013. Happy New Year y'all!!!

For me the whole situation has knocked up a notch as my car has died on me.

It is not the end of the world. I can cycle the 22 miles per day or catch the train. No worries in the short term, but I need to make plans.

Having absolutely no idea when I can even try a right hand drive motor, let alone get an idea when the car I ordered is going to be delievered has left me in a really awkward situation.

Absolutely no sense from Dacia UK!!

What to do.

I will have to make a decision in the next week or 2, and it may be that I have to find another vehicle.

Damn, that'd be a shame. Is it worth explaining your predicament to the dealer, or will they simply have no clue?
