This topic went quiet , anybody receiving their car recently ? Everything is on track , business as usual ?

I was told on Friday that production of the MY22 Corolla has stopped. All customers who had a Corolla on order but didn’t receive by now must change to the MY23 model and wait till January-March (will automatically be front of the queue), or cancel their order. This is in line with MY23 launch booklet timetable circulated by dealers.

I assume production in the UK for the rest of 2022 is focussing on export models and/or Suzuki swace?

That’s interesting, my app has gone today from saying Order Processing to nothing but the dealer contact details. Suggests something is up.

No doubt the change will come with a price increase and a renegotiation on the finance agreement!

I’ll ring the dealer tomorrow to see what they say.

I really hope that’s not the case 😅 Mine finally showed as going into build on Saturday and now like others shows nothing on the tracking via the app only the dealer details, although if I track the order through the toyota website it still shows in build. 
 

Not heard anything from the dealer this week but was told last week they were expecting delivery next Friday. We shall see

If this is the case , it is very poor from Toyota 🙄 at the same time it doesn’t make sense to me , and I don’t think the whole production line was just stopped and it will take a couple of months ‘brake’ until the MY23 starts to be build. It might come down to cars being built for the dealers with more influence , more orders historically … I don’t know , just guessing ….. 😬

At the same time , if mine was due for delivery end if November , even if it would be changed to a MY23 order , why wait until January - March ?! 
Something is just not adding up 🤷‍♂️

Doubt very much that Toyota would limit production just to the Swace. Last year there were only around 1100 Swace first registered in the UK, and this year around 350 for the first six months - so small beer compared to the Corolla.

This is all very odd.  Looked at MyT and my car has gone out of "processing" into nothing apart from the dealer contacts (which are out of date).  The dealer email shows Westlands Worcester who left in 2016 and the retailer as Motorline Worcester who changed to Marshalls about a year ago......  Makes one wonder if there are first class dealers and others in Great Burgh's minds!

No, that does not exist, every dealer gets the same service, large or small, the next minute somebody will be taking this nonsense for gospel, as per other threads currently on here about BZ4X

Just got a call from my dealer there. My original order was in February for a 1.8TS GR Sport. They accidentally ordered a HB, which arrived in May so they had to re order the TS. Now looking at Jan/Feb and will be getting a MY23. They are confirming with Toyota if I will need to choose a different colour as Manhattan Grey no longer available.

@jamiec962 are they honouring the same deal if changing you from a MY22 to a 23?   Or are they upping the price?

My red touring sport 2.0 Excel was due 17th August, ordered February.  Like others my app has changed from processing order to contact retailer.  Retailer don’t currently know what is going on but have said they will find out and call me back.  

Bit frustrating, understand the delay due to the situation in the world at the minute but would just like to know what is happening.  Perhaps I’m wrong but from following this forum it seems like most of the February orders have received their cars now.

It seems like they're honouring the agreed price. Think this is mainly due to the massive mistake they made in the first place that meant they ordered the wrong car! Had to go above the dealer direct to Toyota to figure out so can imagine that's the last thing they want is that mess again.

Update from my dealer:

There is one more production run planned for MY22 which will be in November.

We are currently awaiting confirmation from Toyota those cars which will fall into MY22 and those that will become a MY23.

Officially the MY23 did not go on sale until 1st September and Toyota are doing there best to fulfil all the MY22 orders as MY22.

So it’s a waiting game…

The call I received from my dealer today told me pretty much the same.   He is waiting to hear what cars will be 22 and what will be 23.  Good news is the deal I made in February still stands whether I receive a 22 or 23…. At this stage the 23 looks more likely.  Longer wait but I won’t complain if I end up with the newer model.
