Hi, I’ve recently joined the forum and this is my first post….
I ordered a Tucson 1.6 TGDi Hybrid 230 Ultimate back in March and was recently informed by the leasing company that Hyundai have informed them that the ETA for the car is ‘end of July’.
Once I’d picked myself up from the floor, I thought of previous posts that I had read related to arrival.

My question is of the process, as I’m fairly naive about what happens now? Even if it does arrive this month, what happens before I can except delivery? And has anyone got recent experience of the lead time between arriving at port and delivery to home?

Cheers

I managed to get a 'stock' car (non-hybrid), but I believe this is the end of the process of basically when it is delivered to the country. I am not sure how long the port to delivery would be..

The car from order has been in the PDI (pre-delivery inspection) centre, and from there it won't touch a dealership, instead being delivered straight to my door.

That timing sounds pretty quick for a March order! Mine was ordered end of November and arrived mid June! My experience of arriving in the country to arriving at the dealer was pretty quick, just a week. I’ve heard of some taking up to 4 though.

I’ve had mine for just over a month now, I’m super impressed with it, hope you like yours too when it arrives.

Are you using supermarket fuel? I ask this as my Nissan Juke had the same problem especially if I use Asda fuel!!!! Garage told me to not use supermarket fuel and ever since it's been ok.

Thanks all.
I’m slightly surprised by the eta as I was told August was the earliest (though I decided to not go for the tech pack). I will be eager to get driving it, so the last few weeks will be excruciating 😄.
