I rang my dealership today and they know nothing about this. They said fiat are trying to get as many cars registered and sold and would be very very very suprised if this was the case

Oh your joking!! Bloody wonderful! Surely they cannot do that its not fair, surely if you have out a deposit down and signed the paper the deal has been done whether the car comes before end of sept or not the deal has been done and agreed they cant take that away!!

I guess if you threaten to walk away if they really wanna sell that car they will change their minds quickly i suppose it depends how important your sale is to them. Im starting to seriously regret buying this car now! i had no problems with my last Fiat now im regretting going back!

Re: Fuming!

Salesman assures me there is no problem, but I am very worried now that I might not get my Evo as I cannot afford another 2 grand. I have all paperwork with there contribution on but I have not finalized finance as car has not yet arrived and finance agreement not signed. Also my order form has no estimated delivery date so I guess its wait and see.
I just wanted peoples opions on where I might stand on this? as I have placed the order and signed for it on 17 July. Plus I Quote " this is the only Sporting we have on order ", just my luck 10 white Evos in dealership and there all GP 8V's.

Hmm my situation is the same i havent done my finance, but have you paid a deposit because if you have they can't possible change it because although you haven't done the finance you've put money down for the car and basically signed a contract although you're not paying the whole amount if that makes any sense?

Are workers not entitled to a break? personally I think its a great idea as families spend more time together (kids off school) and socialise more etc.

The status codes are as follows :-
10 : Heavy Variability, Confirmed Order. Fiat has your order but it can still be changed
13 : Light Variability, Confirmed Order. This is the point where only limited changes to your order can now happen.
16 : Fixed, Confirmed Order. your order is now fixed and can no longer be changed with regards factory spec.
20 : Built,
30 : Shipment, At dock waiting to get on a boat.
35 : Transit, On the way to the UK
40 : Arrived, At the docks
45 : Ready, Car is waiting for collection by transport company.
50 : With Delivery Instruction, Delivery instruction has been sent to transport company.
55 : Goods Out, Car is on a transporter on its way to your dealer
60 : Arrival at Dealership, From Status 60 till you pick up your car is now dependent on what dealership options you have, how efficient your dealer is and when you want to pick it


The above might help anyone who’s able to find out the delivery status number of their car. (taken from Fiat site)


Found this contact number on the Fiat website in relation to the Fiat £2000 contribution “For details contact 00800 3428 0000” it does state in the small print that the “Offer ends 30th September 2010” however I would have thought that if you had agreed the deal with the dealership & ordered your car then (in my opinion) they would have to honour that offer. I would suggest contacting the above number and putting the question to them, after all you have to take what the dealership says with a pitch of salt!

Re: Fuming!

T14086 I do not have a problem with Italy having a shutdown in any way shape or form. The problem I have is that Fiat do a promotion from July- September offer you a contribution of £2000. Then when the car is not going to be here for the end of September deadline Dealership tell you £2000 contribution is not applicable as car not registered before 30/9/2010 it sucks after all I ordered my car in JULY!!!!

You’ll probably find some out there somewhere without too much difficulty all the Fiat dealerships up here seem to have GP’s sitting in the showrooms

Weird! I remember a while back people were having this problem with the 500’s and there was speculation that the BSM driving school order was getting all the cars, I have no idea if that was true or not but Fiat do seem to get themselves into bother sometimes, what tends to make it worse is the dealerships though.
I nearly had a problem with my order due to the sales manageress at my local branch, in the end I was lucky as I new the manager at the dealership in the next town and he sorted it out no problem.

I’d try a different garage unless you start getting some honest answers.
You could simply try contacting another Fiat dealership to enquire what Evo’s they have available in the country, that would let you know if you have any chance of getting one quickly at another dealership before cancelling your order.
