When I orderd my C70 in January, I was told the dealer would have a demo in mid-March along with delivery of my car. Then it was late March, then mid-April, and now I'm told mid-May. So far, no demo and no car.<p>Watching posts in this forum and others, it seems like delivery dates keep getting pushed back. Does anyone know why?<p>Has anyone actually taken delivery of a production car yet?<p>Its like Christmas.....I can't wait!

Re: Has anyone gotten one yet? (GrecianVolvo)

First they said that my car would be build week 9. Now they moved it to week 12 (next week <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> ) I think I still will be the first C70 owner. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

The demo date was delayed until February, then March. Finally, two days before I had to finalise the spec on my vehicle the dealer phoned to say that the demo vehicle had just arrived... so I went for a test drive two weeks ago.<p>Delivery for my vehicle is being quoted as 17-23 May.

Re: Has anyone gotten one yet? (JRL)

The new C70 was shown this weekend at the dealers (in Europe). I was told that the (real) production will start this week (12).

Customers cars are coming through almost immediately so I believe so they should be getting built already.

Re: Has anyone gotten one yet? (T5_awd)

I must say my "Volvo experience" with ordering my C70 has been very disappointing. I live in Lancaster, PA, and my local dealer said they had 4 "production slots". I ordered on February 16, and at that time was told delivery would be in mid-May. Less than 3 weeks later, I was told that delivery of my car would be on July 27...more than 2 months later!! No one could explain why I was told mid-May...no one could explain why delivery was now late July. I called all dealers in the region and unfortunately no one had an earlier slot...although one in NJ had a car coming in early May, but was very dissimilar to the car I ordered. <p>It is hard to understand why Volvo did not have this car ready for the US in early spring (like NOW!!!!) for maximal exposure. They are promoting the heck out of it (particularly online)..but as far as I can tell...very few dealers have the car or will have it in the near future. <p>This is my first Volvo...I hope the car is worth it.
