Hi All,

My CLA45 arrived at the Baltimore VPC on 6/14 (1.5 weeks ago) but hasn't left. My dealer called the VPC and they said they are waiting on 1 semiconductor and have no ETA. It is P1 and as my dealer puts it "red hot". Anyone have a similar experience recently with a semiconductor delay and how long to expect?

Thanks!

My AMG CLA45S sat in the factory parking lot in Kecskemét for 5 weeks after its official build date. Some time after the 7th June it received the missing chip and is now waiting for embarkation in the Netherlands (apparently).

That is exactly what the dealer keeps telling me when I call for updates :)

Unfortunately, there is a world-wide chip shortage. Ford Broncos are backed up months and are just now starting to be released. All the car companies freaked and cancelled their chip orders when Covid hit thinking their sales were going to tank. The chip makers started taking orders from other sectors to fill their production voids and now all the car makers are clamoring to get re-scheduled as their sales are much higher than they expected. It's affecting all types of industries that use semi-conductors. A lot of Europe is still only working 3 days a week. Taiwan just announced they're building a huge chip facility in the U.S. to catch up. I just ordered a machine from Germany yesterday that won't ship until February. The industrial world is a mess!

@Northern Al

Concur concur concur whole heartedly

A coupla weeks ago when I was foggy and spewing I think I hammered on all the poor bean counters who lacked foresight ... now I dont feel so bad

Forget the global reset ... the world’s proverbial main battery needs replacement to just get the global restart going .... good grief

Even those who roll out of bed and don bunny slippers for work had supply chain issues so ...

DrOzCLA - I think the issue with your car is (if I recall correctly) that you switched the color from Denim Blue to Digital White. Digital White needs that extra chip that’s missing to make it fully “Digital” 😆

You are absolutely correct Martyn, I am surprised Mercedes didn't just use that as the excuse for delay :ROFLMAO:
