Just heard from my local Audi dealership that despite ordering my new Q5 S Line Plus Stronic 2 weeks ago that i should not expect to see it until early next year. Apparently there is a production problem with the stronic transmissions!!

Is anyone aware of this and is it accurate ?? I am disappointed to say the least as i expected delivery in September 2012......

Hopefully someone has more encouraging news on this front !!

Total rubbish in my opinion mate. More than likely your dealer has used up their allocation and are delaying your order. Most of us on here waited 4-6 months. Tell your dealer to pull their finger out if not take your business elsewhere...

Friend of mine wanted to order an Stronic Q3 and after a bit of research on a few forums he found that there were long delays with them so he went for a manual. However I do agree that waiting till next year is a bit long to say the least.

A production problem would be they they do not have capacity to meet demand rather than a technical problem. Have you phoned a.n.other Audi dealer?

My nephew was told he would not get delivery of his A3 2.0TDI 170 black S line for many months by our local dealer. He contacted Manchester Audi they had one in stock and he took delivery within two weeks

I ordered an S Tronic on17th April and have not heard anything, in fact the dealer (Taunton) has said it will come earlier as I have a "lucky slot" - total wait should be 12 weeks if it arrives on time.

This seems like an ongoing reason (excuse) I ordered my stronic 2.0 tdi last august and took delivery 1st week of March. I too was told the delays were due to the auto gearbox. This was from the dealer and Audi UK. What i dont get is that if it was a problem backin August last year why hasnt it been sorted by now. Its smells fishy to me!

Guys thanks for the feedback I feel a lot better about the process now. I was suspicious about the excuses given but lacked confidence to challenge anyone.......not now!!!

Thanks again
