  1. Done the same as most other folk. £500 deposit on CC. The rest of the deposit will be however they want it paid. Likely to be bank transfer, but I'll check to make sure it doesn't delay handover. I've done large transfers before and have done it in the bank/building society and got the cashier at the counter to process and confirm. I remember getting a large refund for a cancelled holiday. They sent £1 through first to confirm correct details and the rest followed after that confirmation. If you're concerned, try that. It's a bummer though, if it delays pick up of the vehicle. We've all been waiting a long time!!
  2. Following on from my previous post, I did get an e mail from the dealer to offer apologies for the lack of contact and that they would look into latest news for me and report, however the MyT app data has changed again today and moved on, on the map, still 'In Transit' but now moved on to showing in Derby. That's 6 days from arriving at Portbury, so perhaps not too long to wait now, final checks, fitting tow bar then down south to dealer.
  3. Between the info on the App and the JSON data(which I will try to open) and thanks for the help from others on the forum for this. Is it just me or is anybody else finding it difficult to get any info from their dealers. I've emailed mine about 3 times for info since I ordered my vehicle (late September), so not excessive. Not a flicker of a reply, except one phone call back. Should be close to delivery time, but concerned about the lack of customer support.
  4. Looks like things moved on quite quickly. I agree that there's no set formula and there's a fair bit of variation. Ordered my HEV Dynamic on 28/09 Build 02/02 Left factory 09/02 Arrived Portbury 10/03 2-3 weeks to dealer maybe Enjoy your new motor!
  5. How long was it between 'In Transit' and 'Arrived at retailer'.
  6. Yes, MyT app has changed to 'In Transit' for me too, so all looking very promising for perhaps an earlier collection date from 05 May projection by dealer. One would hope they will contact me to update.
  7. Is anybody else expecting a vehicle in the near future. I have had a look at the marine traffic apps and a vehicle carrier, Michigan Highway, from Japan, is due to arrive at Portbury on Thursday this week. Ever hopeful mine is on that ship!!
  8. Yes, the 'vehicle on ship' icon indicating 'left the factory' is highlighted in red + white dot. Dealer estimation, presumably with some info from Toyota, is early May. Its been a long wait so far. Glad to see that others on the forum have been collecting their vehicles. I've been busy sorting and planning the sale of my 8 yr old Yeti, privately. Not trading it in. Incidentally, another topic on new car purchase. Dealers are pedalling the GAP/Smart Insurance/Supagard/Tyre&Alloy Insurance package. Mine actually added it to invoice without a word. £1.6k. Peanuts, I guess when you're spending nearly 40k! Needless to say I will not be taking up the offer and removing it. I'm insured with NFU at the moment and will get the 2yr new car cover as standard and I have a local detailer in mind for paint/trim protection. Not sure about the other items in the package. What decisions/conclusions did anyone else come to?
  9. I placed my order late September, showed 'processing order' for just over 4 months. Changed to 'build in progress' on 02/02, then 'left factory' on 09/02. So, it's still in port awaiting a vessel or possibly en route. Presumably it will change status again when arrived in UK.
  10. I have just received a message from my dealer which confirms the change in status from 'processing order' to 'build in progress' of my HEV Dynamic. Order placed at the end of September, so just about bang on 4 months to progressing to build. I'm told early May for delivery. The 'building your car' message has been unchanged for about a week now, so can any of you, who have had experience of this process already, give me an outline please, of the timing of stages through the MyT app that would indicate that the early May delivery is accurate.
  11. It's good to hear that cars are arriving and and being paired up with new owners. Appears that more PHEV models are coming through sooner. My HEV Dynamic ordered at the end of September had a delivery date in mid March. My dealer called me yesterday with the news that mid March is not likely to happen and suggested it will be more like some time in May. I did get an email the other day from Toyota UK, basically apologising for the delay. Very much just a general message. Nothing car specific and not much content to it other than giving me the same info as in MyT, i. e., still 'Processing order'. I'd be interested to know how many others on the forum are facing similar issues, when did they place order, projected delivery dates and any similar delays. Thanks everyone.
  12. I received an email from my dealer on 1st November last, with details that my order, placed at the end of September, for an HEV, Dynamic would be the new MY2022 spec. Email listed changes. MyT still showing being processed and a projected delivery in mid March when order was placed. I know no more. I have a feeling it will be later than that
  13. If it is an HEV, when did you place your order?
  14. HEV Dynamic ordered late September KJ initials, mid March delivery. Doesn't appear as there is too much logic
  15. I ordered my HEV Dynamic right at the end of September and was given a mid March delivery (no change as yet). Posts on the comparison with PHEV and HEV delivery seem to indicate the higher demand for HEV models. I would probably have gone for a PHEV model, but sadly at present, I have no facility for home charging, as we live in a complex of flats. The HEV for me is the best option. I have been told by my dealer that my vehicle will be a MY2022 build.
  16. My dealer emailed the info, so it's in black and white, but I take your point as until you see it in the flesh, one never knows, but the helpful clue is in the comment made in the answers given about the order/stock no., details of which are on the order form copy given to me, which shows a zero next to the stock no. To me that confirms my dealers recent message. Like you, I would prefer a spare wheel and may well source one rather than have just a can of tyre weld. Having said that, I ordered a spare wheel etc on my current car, a Yeti, I purchased back in 2014 and so far I haven't used it!!
  17. There's some information on mag.toyota.co.uk Main article is about the Adventure model, but further on, some questions from buyers and answers from Toyota UK. Some answers state that MY2021 final production month is November. There's other info on buyers checking with their dealers re. stock numbers issued or not to derermine if their order is MY2021 or MY2022. Has anyone tried that with their dealer? My dealer has already told me that my order (late September) will be MY2022 model.
  18. The update items were sent through from my dealer, so they've had some info from Toyota presumably. Nothing on there re. the multimedia system
  19. Yes, sorry, I left that bit out. It is an HEV I ordered, hence the much longer order/delivery time. MyT only shows the basic details as in vehicle model, engine and transmission
  20. I can add a bit of info having been contacted by my dealer this afternoon. I ordered a Rav4 Dynamic trim in Tecuma grey with JBL upgrade plus tow bar late September with a projected delivery in mid March The dealer email indicated that it would fall into the updated MY2022 model production line and listed the changes Puddle lights, Passenger electric seats with lumbar support, Illuminated window switches, LED fog lights, USBC connection, Interior LED lights and LED projector headlight design. Anybody ordering around the time of my order and later will be in for the updated model as well. Sounds promising and an extra bonus. No other news of alterations to delivery dates.
  21. From other posts on the subject and searching online it doesn't look like major changes, for the UK anyway. You'd almost call them 'tweaks'. It appears to vary depending on the country the vehicle is sold in too. New 'projector' style headlights. LED fog lights. Some changes to interior lighting. Possible improvements to infotainment system and extra USB charging ports. Different alloys depending on trim level. Not really anything that would bother me too much if my vehicle is a MY2021.
  22. I think we all feel a bit in limbo at the moment. My Dynamic HEV + towbar + uprated sound system was ordered late September with an estimated delivery date of mid March. Searched and then ordered at my nearest dealer via Carwow which now happens to show my model as discontinued, which is a bit odd, although this might be due to the MY2021 & MY2022 model changeover happening soon. Toyota website also in transition as regards Rav4 brochure and price list as it shows as in state of update. I've emailed dealer and Toyota UK with query but had no response as yet. I guess we all knew it was going to be a lengthy wait given the current circumstances but frustrating nonetheless with very little info coming back. Probably, as was mentioned, the dealers are none the wiser, if Toyota are anything like Yamaha, as I experienced a few years ago with the purchase of a motorcycle.
  23. Thanks for the reply everybody. Standard contract reads that the purchaser has the right to make changes. On a new car it depends on how far through the manufacturing process the vehicle is. The possibility of making the change depends on the type of change. The possibility of a change in the price and alteration of delivery time is also indicated if this were to happen. The next clause indicates that the seller/Toyota may change the product, (i) to reflect changes in law and regulations to meet requirements, (ii) for new cars where the model year specification has changed, (iii) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. No response from my dealer yet. I'll let you know if/when I do. I know from some of the posts from other members, who have placed orders around this time, wonder whether the model they have ordered will be current or new spec. My question to the dealer was that if the build date of some of these new car orders coincides with the 'refinements' change, where do I and others stand.
  24. I've messaged my dealer on the subject for some information to find out what's going on. I ordered a SC hybrid (Dynamic trim) at the end of September with an estimated delivery in the middle of March. A vague mention of an update coming at some point. Looking at the info coming through on changes doesn't bother me unduly. It's a pretty impressive vehicle as it is. The changeover from current model in production to update version is going to happen sometime. I'm not expecting any news on the build of my vehicle until the new year. Will it be current or new spec? I'm not sure. I'm expecting current model. New spec would be a plus, but there's likely be a hike in price and I can't see how that would work having ordered and placed a deposit, but a further delay because of production changeover not so good
