Nipz, your dealer might be right. It might be my dealers telling me porkies to keep me sweet although I think it's probably genuine. I don't know how long cars are at Dag Rail for? You'd have thought that once they make the rail side they'd be on their way to Halewood pronto? I'll try my dealer again at the end of the week for an update.

Cars are taking ages to come over at the mo. i have loads of customers who are in the same boat. I check everyday for all of my customers and as soon as i can put the car on a priority build. The problem we have as dealers is that if ford dont update our computer system so we cant give the customer any new info. Head banging moment for both the dealer and customer.

answer to the original question Ford Options over two years on the new fiesta is the best way to buy the car! Put it this way i did it that way for my girlfriend!

Can you help me out with why my car is showing that its only just left the factory when i was told it would leave on the 9th. And why Truly55 is updating more than mine?

i would if i could! our computer systems only let us look at our cars and also cars in our dealer group. I would speak to your sales guy as its down to them to look every day and check where the car is. I ring my customers just to say there is no change. What dealership is it?

Hey all,

Just wondered who here outright brought there new fiesta or like me are leasing it for 2 years?

Ive gone for the leasing option so that i dont have to find 12,000 all at once and so i also get a new car every 2 years.

Just wondered everyones thoughts?

Ben


i bought mine outright, its the zetec S, in sea grey, with street pack, city pack, side skirts, bluetooth. 12k

i bought it at the end of jan but not picking it up till next thurs, which is very annoying as it was at the dealers when i bought it,
but least i get it on an '09 plate

That's pretty shabby service. I would have a word with the Business Manager at your dealer. Your car went through the factory before mine so you'd have thought it would be at least as far up the line. Here's a thought - I know, according to the database, that mine was assembled in Cologne, but if yours is from Valencia (?) would that change matters as it's a longer journey to the UK? The Ford database will show where your car was assembled. Nipz, go and see the manager and ask for an explanation.

My mums friend knows the owner of the dealership so were speaking to them tomorrow. Do all the cars not get made in the same place? I got told mine was built in Germany (Cologne). Same as yours...

Where you get the Valencia from :)

My Fiesta is being built (well should have been built!) in Valencia!
I have been told I should get it by the end of next week but "nothing was promised"
Is it true the car has to be in the UK for a week before it can be registered?

Mine is in the sea somewhere...on the way here or something?! Lets hope thats what she means.
My dealer has been really good and kept me informed, told me when she will next ring me etc.

Quick up date: After my mum rang this morning, suddenly my dealer rang me with an update. My car is in Dag, got in yday, but still not going to be here until end of next week. She said normally it will take another 2 weeks, but managed to get it shorter.

Poohbear: The car isnt registered until it gets to your dealer and is all checked over. Well thats what ive just been told.

So does it take a week from when my dealer gets it for me to have it?!
I'm getting fed up of not having a car and waiting now...I am the most impatient person ever!

Poohbear, if your dealer has the car he should be able to turn it around by the following day. He simply needs to carry out the Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI), tax it, insure it for the week for you and wash & wax it. Simples! In theory you could get it the same day but the following day is not too much to ask.

Thanks for that 55.
I hope it comes over soon! My dealer is not known for being very good at telling you the accurate information, which annoys me! I'm having diamondbrite but have told them to leave it till ive got the car and will take it back and have that done!
