As for the 4x4 alternatives, I've had the same dilemma as you - ideally I wanted something bigger than a Panda, but the wife won't consider a Yeti (the first one she saw was red, and now she refers to them as Postman Pat's car), I wasn't smitten with the Renegade, Tiguans are totally boring (both to look at and to drive), the new Disco Sport is too expensive, etc.

I'm going to take a look at the new Seat Ateca when it finally lands in the UK (we've had several Seats, and they've been great).
Is it worth going to another dealer and starting again? We do like the renegade. It's the 1.4 170 4x4 ltd

Re: short changed new order?

Why not try Orange Wheels and see what the various dealers come up with?

That's the one! I saved over a grand on my Yeti by using quotes obtained on Carwow as a bargaining chip. That was with 0% finance and 750 deposit contribution. Mind you, Skoda are a dream to deal with compared to most Fiat dealers.

Only a certain amount of satisfaction as you haven't got the vehicle you'd opted for. Better luck on the next attempt.

No rush on that really, we'll wait for the next 0% offer to come along.....it was more a matter of principle. Also the way they casually emailed after accepting the order to say the offer as quoted is no longer available and the new repayment will be .... Thanks for your business.

Re: short changed new order?

Good for you :-) When I signed the order for my Yeti at the end of quarter1, the dealer made a point of saying he'd move me over to the quarter 2 deal if it was better. As it happened it wasn't, but I still got the cheaper of the two deals. Glad you stuck to your guns.

Good for you!

Honestly, if a company cannot even sell you a product properly, just imagine what the after-sales is going to be like. First letter begins with S and the last letter begins with T

No doubt you won't have to wait long to get the deal you want.

Is Jeep Customer Services the same contact number as Fiat's? If you can be bothered I would ring them up and tell them you cancelled your order because of the arrogant reply from your dealer. At least it is in the system then.
