2012 GLI delayed to August due to high demand for Jettas

The Jetta has fallen a victim of its own success. VW cant make enough of them to keep up with demand and while production has ramped up  inventory levels are still at an all time low. Unfortunately for the enthusiast VW has to put priority on its bread and butter models as it struggles to bring inventory levels to  comfortable levels and has put the GLI in the back burner.

All pre sold GLI orders are still sitting in the  order bank and no cars have been built as of today. The GLi is now expected to ship to dealers in August at the earliest.

  1. Jay do you think the 2012 GTI’s are going to be delayed as well?

  2. No the GTI is still on schedule

  3. I’ve ordered a 2012 Jetta TDI, could that be delayed as well? do you have any guess on when those could be shipping?

  4. Jay, when will we see the 2012 GTI?

  5. What color leather interior will the GLI have?

  6. Love the black, it’s the only way to go.

  7. Thanks Jay!

    To bad the didn’t offer Corn Silk! I live in the dessert and black is just WRONG for a 115 degree mid-August day!

    Red from the Eos would also be great for a performance car!
