Rav4 Estimated Delivery Time

Recommended Posts

Having been 'in transit' to Derby since 19th January, my car is now shown as 'arrived at dealership' today. That's despite the JSON data showing delivery as 10th March for the last few weeks.

I'm a happy bunny. The dealership emailed a list of possible registrations today and new 22 reg.no. chosen.

I'm looking forward to collecting it in the first week of March after a five and a half month wait.

You could be the first on here with a MY22 HEV model, so if you go to the dealer for early peek, a few pictures would be appreciated.

Both my 2019 and 2021 Excel have Brown trays.

Didn't know 2wd only get cheapy drive mode buttons and not the nice colour changing glowing knob you get in the 4wd.

Just the one I'm waiting for. Build in progress for 5 days now on MyT. Who knows when it will arrive, anytime between April and June, dealer calls monthly but I think they just sit and throw darts at the calendar 🥱

Placed my order for Black Edition on 14th September 2021.

MyT still says ‘Processing order’.

Not heard a sausage, so phoned dealer last week ….. nothing to update!  No ETA at all and dealerships not even taking orders anymore.

The Black Edition isn't being carried forward as part of the MY22 range, which is why no more orders are being taken. Toyota have said they will honour existing orders.

I think there’s a posting on this about how to inspect your order online and see expected delivery date, shipping etc and how the build is progressing. I think it’s called a JSON file

Thanks for that George, but I tried it and my order No doesn't show on the Network Tab in Chrome. Not too bothered, I'll probably follow it when the status changes to " Left the Factory"  if I can ID the vessel on Marine Traffic, which I use for other purposes. Just had a look at Nagoya Port and I seems quiet for car carriers today.

Hi, No problem. I found the instructions if you need to try at a later date and here is also a listing for my vehicle if it helps. Good luck. 
 

Log into My Toyota

Choose purchased

Right click purchased and choose Inspect

Click on Network (middle of page)

In the Filter area (first column)  type order number (15 numbers) which can be found using your MyToyota app.

000238185320001

Reload/refresh web page

You should see a JSON file under ‘Name’ in the first column, click on that and your full details will appear on screen, showing all stages.

So I had an email from Toyota last night saying my black edition is cancelled - quote:

"Your order for the Toyota RAV4 Black Edition was cancelled as we have been unable to fulfill any orders due to levels of stock. The RAV4 is an extremely popular model and, unfortunately, all available production space for UK orders have already been taken"

Phoned my dealer this morning who assures me my order is still live, no problems and to expect delivery May/June.

Might just flip a coin at this stage .... 😉

 

 

Had a call 4th feb 2022 ,

about my black edition order (4 th Sept2021)
the General Manager of My dealer said that they were producing more black edition to cover the high demand in the last days of orders . 
mine was due Jan but now may/June 😊

@FROSTYBALLS I meant dealerships are not taking any orders for any RAVs not the Black Edition, as this has now been discontinued - although honouring those with orders in already.

I’m about to trade in my black 2020 Rav4, here’s hoping the value goes up and up! 😁

It does make sense - from time to time it would appear that Toyota place a short term moratorium on dealers being able to place new orders. That was certainly the case when I bought mine. The dealer stated that they were temporarily unable to place an order for a new car and didn't know when they would be again, but could search through available stock for something that reasonably matched my requirements. And, in the event, I had my car within 5 weeks - at that time I suspect Toyota UK had rather more stock than they really wanted!

I've no real idea what might be the rationale right now but I'd be tempted to guess that Toyota have more orders than they can deliver in the short term ...

Surely the reason is that with the shortages and Covid they are unable to cope with the current backlog let alone add it it right now. I take the occasional look at the NKH World news and they are continuously talking about the rising covid rates and impact on manufacturing.

Fair point, I hadn’t considered they would simply stope taking orders. I expected a reduction in discounts or less attractive finance. However the situation Must have increased the value of my new car! A colleague of mine collected his 2wd RAV a couple of weeks ago and was immediately offered more by the dealer than he paid for it. In fact he claimed he was offered over list and he is not someone prone to fantasy.

FWIW - As a Toyota employee the employee purchase discount scheme was suspended last October due to lack of vehicle availablity - that's how bad things are.

Well my new RAV was handed over on Friday (Excel AWD Black, Beige leather ordered early August).

It did turn out to be a 2021, I suspect I missed out on a 2022 by a month or so before the production change.
Not really bothered its not 2022 as changes only minor to my mind. Looks very regal in metallic Black, quite a change from luminous Cyan!

Handed back my 2019 RAV at 65K looking good as new (resisted door dings and stone chips very well) and driving perfect, the Beige leather still looked good without much discolouring and still tight and un-creased or cracked.

Changes on my 2021? well it has Android auto, had a play for about 20 mins and didn't find anything useful (to me) so uninstalled it. I really didn't want bigger wheels, but I will admit it when I am wrong, the 19" over the 18" do look a lot better and fill the arches and have only had a very minor effect on the ride, a very small extra sensitivity to small road blemishes but its still a very comfortable car. Its now got the electronic pedestrian warning sound at low speed my 2019 didn't. Came with Toyo tyres which don't seem too bad. It might be my imagination, but the rear glass looks slightly less tinted than my 2019 but I can't imagine why.

Usual first business, adjusted tyre pressures as they often forget and deliver at 39/40 psi. Set to 34 feels instantly less tippy toe. Need to adjust the headlights up so not too low, as shipped, 2021's don't come with a spare (only reason I am sad about not hitting a 2022 as they do have spare) already ordered a spacesaver kit off The Wheel Shop (£170 shipped), fitted a new rubber boot mat (B&M do a generic one you trim yourself covers 90% of the boot, was fine in my old RAV) installed dashcam, ordered some new rubber cubby inserts from China (existing ones wrong colour now) did all the car and multimedia pairing to app. Its got to go on the road and earn its living tomorrow.

So stuck with me on the group for a while yet haha!

(PS what the heck do I do with an Issho??)

@Rav Rob - Hi - I'm looking for a spacesaver for my 2021 Excel.  Did you order the 18" spare from The Wheel Shop and does it fit under the floor okay?  Cheers in advance

Hi Wellfed, yes, I have used them before for other cars and always had a good experience. As below you get a reasonable quality scissor jack with a ratchet handle, a heavy duty extending wheel nut wrench and a canvas bag to keep it in.

Fits no problem in boot and still leaves plenty of room under floor for stuff.  I think it might even be 17" but its buried under a boot full of gear at the moment, there is no problem running on a 17" in emergency even if the car has 17, 18 or 19" wheels, the differential will compensate.
Only thing missing is the wheel securing bolt, you can get them on eBay, but I knocked up my own with a suitable long bolt and a nut put through a hole drilled in a small square of aluminium sheet with corners turned up to form finger  grips. Don't buy spare on eBay, same seller but much higher price. Delivery very fast by DHL in a big cardboard box.

Tyre looks never used, hopefully it never will be!!. when I dispose of the car I will put the original tray back in and put the spare on Shpock, they usually sell pretty well.

Thanks for the quick response Rav Rob.  The 18" kit is £169 and the 17" is £199 which is a bit odd, but will go for the 18" on cost grounds alone. Thanks again
