Due to be ready for end of the month, so getting excited
I'm delighted for you! Surely you would have been told by now if you couldn't get everything you ordered, so I would say, you're well on your way to picking up your new car soon.

I received an email from Volvo UK at 0900 on Monday 7th June and at 1010 I received an email from my dealership telling me my car has just rolled off the production line and passed all post production checks.

It is now due between 13th-19th June.

I've ordered a ton of accessories and find myself looking on youtube for in depth reviews of the MY2022 V90, but as of yet, nothing much there.

Please let me know if you get any further updates.

I had hoped I was a few days behind your order but just had a message to say my V60 is delayed until the end of june now.

That's annoying. You never know, it could still come through earlier. My ETD changed twice at the very end.

My fingers are crossed for you

I received the same email about 7 days before receiving a second similar email, telling me to prepare for my new Volvo. The same day as receiving the second email, the dealership told me it had just rolled off the production line.

The ETD was brought forward from the 28th June to the 15th which is when the dealership took delivery of it.

Going to pick it up in a couple of hours!!!!

I can't believe my luck.

I arrived at the dealership at 2pm to collect the car. Went through all the paperwork and it came time to see the car.

All went well, the car was brought around the front of the dealership and I was blown away. The manager then came to me and said, he can't let me take the car as an issue has arisen. I thought he was joking. He wasn't.

It turned out the car was not being recognised correctly by the registration process at the factory and so until it is, the car can't be taxed correctly and wouldn't be legally allowed on the roads.

They say they will resolve the issue ASAP but it could go into next week.

So, no new car yet. ;(

Wow that is ridiculously deflating. I had the wrong number plate on my car when I picked it up last month as someone keyed in one letter wrong... luckily I spotted it and didn't get pulled over.

My most deflating moment on my journey to getting my car was in March when someone at the dealership phoned me up saying my car had arrived and it was ready only to call me later that day to say they had the wrong order number and the car that arrived wasn't even the same model!

I'm not sure if this is Volvo specific or typical of most dealerships?
