Many people are extremely frustrated with not being able to get the new car they want after placing an order a long time ago.
Commenting on the latest registration figures, Society of the Irish Motor Industry (Simi) boss Brian Cooke has pointed out that a return to more normal new car sales levels is being hampered by supply chain problems and the uncertain global political climate.
In other words, manufacturers are finding it difficult to make enough cars to meet demand.
In many car dealerships, cars are simply snapped up by the lucky buyers, for whom the long wait is over.
But others face a dilemma: do they buy what’s available, even if it’s not exactly what they want, or wait months, if not next year, to get their dream car?
Rush buying – call it panic buying if you like – is a dangerous thing, so think carefully about what you can live with in a car that isn’t your first choice.
The stakes are too high to compromise beyond a certain limit. But you have to decide what that limit is.
