( MotorAuthority ) - Dealerships around the world have been taking in pre-orders of the model that many hope will revive Jaguar's ailing sales and reputation but the hotly anticipated car, the all-new 2009 XF, is proving so popular that high demand for the car has led to delays in some deliveries. The XF isn't set to be launched until next week for most markets but in the UK, where deliveries were due to begin on March 1, some buyers have had their delivery date pushed back indefinitely to overcome a quality issue, and we suspect a similar story could apply for buyers in other markets as well.
"We are aware that some customers are experiencing a small delay with getting their cars, and we are working hard to resolve that problem," a Jaguar spokesman told WhatCar?. "However, the delay is a result of us wanting to ensure each car is delivered at its absolute maximum standard. There is high demand for the car, and we want to make sure that each one is delivered with the latest software," the spokesman explained.
Jaguar isn't willing to reveal how long it will take until those certain customers receive the cars but with 4,000 pre-orders in the UK alone it appears that it may take time.
