Sorry to be a nuisance. Does anyone know what code 70 means in practice.
I have VW Chat saying delivered to dealer and dealer saying van has not been delivered yet...:rolleyes:
Had similar a few years ago with my first Cali. VW reckoned it was at dealer 3 days before dealer acknowledged it was with them. On collection it had 24 miles on the clock which I questioned and was told it was normal delivery miles. Didn’t seem right to me but some internet research suggested up to 50 mlies would be considered normal, so I let it go. It also had a small stress mark on the drivers seat plastic trim, which I didn’t spot until later and which I didn’t know then but soon discovered was a tell tale of the seat being turned with the handbrake on. Could have been nothing but I always had a suspicion that the dealer had used it as a demo for a customer as they didn’t have one at the time. Will never know for sure. So I would be asking some questions and checking carefully on pick up, just in case.

Maybe they are short handed and not gotten round to doing the PDI yet and stalling for time, even so, it doesn't bode well for when our van eventually arrives. Did you have bother with them on a previous order?

My 204 4-Motion is allegedly in build right now - but given the discrepancies between chat and dealers, etc - I'm not getting excited until it's on the boat :)

It was said somewhat tongue in cheek, but last time VW changed the emission bits all the vans had to be subsequentally recalled & remapped as the emissions were too high.

One of the results of that was the 204 engine became a 199 & adblu consumption increased to the extent that VW compensated owners.
Not quite correct. Some engines had a reprogram of the Adblue system to give better soot cleaning of the exhaust system, nox level.
VW gave a number of free Adblue top ups to compensate for the higher Adblue consumption. Wasn't a must do recall as it was optional whether to have it done or not. This mainly for 150 engines initially and rolled over to 204 which didn't become a 199, only new factory spec was 199.. All of a now typical VW emissions mess.
New 204 has a 2 stage emission system with a doubling of the Adblue tank capacity to give a better range between fill ups.

I ordered a 204 4 motion At the end of September. Last week I was told I had a build slot in March according to the list that VW sent to dealers. I foolishly decided to talk to VW chat today and they told me I was set for a May build date and that I was code 10. I’ve pinged Euro vans Crawley hoping for a better answer. Honestly this is getting so ridiculous :)

I have just checked with VW chat and they are still saying I have a confirmed build date of week 9 and I ordered mid August so fingers crossed

Still awaiting my week 51 build. The dealer told me in January he had every confidence it would be ready for collection 1st March hmmmm..
.. since it has been sat at the port of exit nearly 10 days now I think that's unlikely. What a painful process this is turning out to be !!
