question re repairs/servicing

hi, I am due to pick up my new evo at the end of the month.
My question is, it is on pcp, so can I take it to another fiat dealer for repairs, recalls (if any occur) , servicing and ultimately, can I use another dealer at the final pcp stage,I ask because I imagine as a pcp deal, the agreement is with fiat, not the garage.
Anyone???

oh and if the car is due end of month, when should it arrive at the dealer, they need to call me to alter my insurance.

I dont have a great deal of confidence in my dealer, kind of regretting going with them.

thanks

El

Not sure what pcp means (i'm thick )

But yeah, i was told i can take it to any Fiat dealership as the contract is with Fiat, not the dealership.

Also my servicing card (3 years free servicing with Punto Evo) says i just present this card to a fiat dealership to get my free service, doesnt mention anything about the specific dealership.


If you've been told the car is due end of the month, id phone up any time now and ask for a more solid date and they should be able to tell you that the car will be in the UK on xx date, then it takes 7-10 days to arrive at the dealership so you'll get a rough idea.

Personally i had a phone call 2 days before I picked up my car from my dealership with a number to call & a number to quote which put me on there insurance for 7 days (its free.), that said i did sort out my direct line cover aswell the night before just to be extra safe.
