Aaaah, useless tossers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ford have sent the right car up apart from the trim is Fairland and not Soho and my stupid dealer accepeted the car off the transporter so now it's Evans Halshaws fault and not Ford UK. The dealer doesn't look that bothered about the whole thing. :angry: :angry: and is prepared to give me my deposit back. !Removed!! I've been looking forward to the car for 6 weeks and now it's the wrong car.

I wonder what Evans Halshaw could offer me to keep the Fairland? I bet I'd be a lot less than Ford UK could have offered if it was Fords mistake but not it isn't as the dealer accepted the car.

Gutted and angry. :angry:


WTF!!! You should kick up hell and demand to speak to the manager (if not the owner) of the dealer!!! That is totally unacceptable!

I am lost for words!

Here's my growng list of reasons to keep the wrong car:
- Evans Halshaw to give me free scuff plates (already ordered but not paid for)
- Evans Halshaw to give me 3 years free servicing
- ???

Any sensible others?

Mmmm, my first experience with Ford isn't giving me any confidence in their company. I can see why I've bought Toyotas for years but I liked the look of the new fezzer. Let me see what happens tomorrow after I kick up a storm with both Ford Motor Company and Evans Halshaw. I'm more annoyed with EH as the business manager I spoke to this evening wasn't bothered it was the wrong car. He didn't engage with me at all and carried on looking at his !Removed! computer screen. I should have gone to Polar down the road. :rolleyes:

!Removed! hell, that's unforgiveable.

Are you buying the car outright or is it on options as I would imagine that the interior on the Hot Magenta could affect resale.

Looking at my thread on how people got their cars it was done on Ford Options.

Well that shouldn't affect resale if the car goes back to Ford.

Personally, I think I'd want another car ordering in the spec I specified if it was upto me at the original price agreed and the service thrown in as well. That's the least they could after an all mighty !Removed! up like that.

All depends if Truly can wait I suppose.

I think he should get a fairly nice discount with the servicing thrown in. If not they should give him a car until the reorder comes through!

Im waiting for a call back about the latest on mine :(

Never buy a car from Evans Halshaw! The one in Milton Keynes is hopless! Their customer serivce is unheard of. They never give good discounts and expect to sell the car at near list price. The sales people are just there to nick our money and laugh at us.

As for the delivery of cars, it's not down to Ford it lies with your dealer as it depends how fast or slow they get it delivered to the dealership. Yes i understand all new cars now are built to order due to Ford cutting back on production, but the est delivery date should not exceed the day they agreed.

As for delivering the wrong car....well lets say it don't surprise me with that dealer network :unsure:

Edit:

If your dealer wants to turn the car handover around quickly, like mine did then they will. My fiesta got to the dealer on the 10th december 2008 and it was ready and reg'd by 11th december! very impressed :)
