Going off range?

Postby Bondie » Sat Feb 06, 2016 10:30 am

Just asking.....trying to update my Scirocco so have been trawling the dealerships. Has anyone had any gossip about the Rocs being taken off range by VW? One dealership said they personally have stopped selling new ones as "they are a niche market and don't sell well" and quite frankly apart from body shape there isn't a lot of difference to a Golf. VW haven't really updated the Roc, just tweaked it cosmetically & added 3 pretty dials!

No - the Scirocco is not off range at all, they have only just revealed the new 220PS GTS version, not sure why your dealer claimed they are not selling new ones anymore.

It is very much 'niche' and don't sell anywhere near the numbers of Golf's, the Scirocco is still using the older platform though where as the Golf is well established now on the MQB setup.

I'd be inclined to say

"Well, as VW sales figures are so outstanding at the moment I guess you can afford to turn away a customer with cash in his pocket wanting to buy a niche model, and sell all those Golfs you're stockpiling. I'll try another dealer, thanks."

Just encountered my second dealership this week who isn't selling new Rocs. What is happening? Is this to do with VW's problems?

From my knowledge, the Rocco is EOL this year in september. Maybe that's why dealers are not selling it anymore...

Does it explain why they stopped selling them in Feb 2016 when the rest of the comments were posted.

For some reason this post appeared as unread for me and highlighted "as new".

My bad for digging up old posts, sorry.
