Finally Got It though its not over yet

Well finally got the car today. Though they have not painted the calipers or tinted the windows so it needs to go back in for that. Also they have chipped the drivers wing mirror when they changed the Mirror caps for the chrome ones so that will need fixed. Also the steering wheel is not straight so looks like that will need balanced or something.

They have done a good job of fitting the speakers even though the balance is mixed up i.e. left is right and right is left haha. But as it is always likely to be centered I am not sure that's a major issue.

Other than that seems to be ok. Drive is amazing, boy can it go lol.

Will post photos when its finally all done.

Re: Finally Got It though its not over yet

That doesn't sound good? If mine's like that when I go to collect I'll be telling them what they can do with it. If I'm paying for a brand new car I expect a brand new car.

Damn right, granted the speakers will be a quick job but it should be done - but i guess its not a big problem, they can swap those wires over in less than a minute.

Mirror caps, ballache but i guess accidents happen so they'll sort it when they have the stock in - fair enough.

Tracking - Sorry, but Wtf!? if i picked up a car a few years old from a private sale id expect the steering wheel to be alittle off but on a new car it should be pin point accurate, get that sorted asafp, and after they've "done" it make sure its straight, if its not then U-Turn & go back again.

Re: Finally Got It though its not over yet

That car wouldve been staying on their sodding forecourt if i'd found it in that state. Shambolic.

Ring Fiat UK and have it out with them.

Re: Finally Got It though its not over yet

i reckon the steering wheel will be on a master spline and same for lower shaft so why is the tracking out on a new car?

I'd say the garage was manned by Monkeys. But that'd insult Monkeys.

If they dont do it properly & fix the above, id suggest trying another dealer, the ones your dealing with seem to be complete muppets.
