Hi all
I placed anorder for a new C max in March this year for the Style C max 1.8TDI on mobility then Changed my mind in April and changed it to the 1.8 TDI zetec
I had a delivery date 13.6.08 so I called to check if everything was ok but they told me they had not had delivery of the car which should have been the 7-6-08, and they looked into it.

I was told it beenheld at ford dagenham because they do check on a certain amount of cars and will hold it until they check it over, this is what the dealer has told me
and waiting for admin to get back to say when the car will arrive at the dealer.

I phoned the dealer again today, and it still at dagenham, I asked why it was so long and he said it could have a fault and they will sort it there, before delivery or they would have to pay the dealer to do the work and also they would not let the car go if there was a risk it was not safe,whichI would not want that either,
he was going to chase it up and phone me back at 5pm I never got the call
do you usally have to wait this long or get this trouble
Thanks for any advice.

Thankyou for the Advice I will give them a ring and see if they can help at all
it does say on the Mobilty site that due to some car's being more popular the dealer cannot guarentee the delivery date.

I want to try and get delivery before theend of this month as my current car I own the insurance and tax runs out then, and as I will gettingthe C maxon Mobitly, I wont have the worry of paying for these, but if they go over the end of June I will have to pay on the current car I own.

Perhaps see ask them, in a nice way of cours,that if the new car does not show up at the end of the month, would they give you a hire car until you get yours delivered.
You never know!

just a update
Contacted ford mobilty who told me to get the dealer to phone logistics and find out when the car will arrive, if he dont phone back with details ask to speak to his boss
he did get back and said I will have it Thursday 4th,even though its, has not arrrived at the dealer yet and said first it has to to come from degernam then to kiddermister (dealer logistics) then has to be PDI
as my insurance would have cost meŁ50.00 to renew and cancel they have now given me a KA to use but not great for my condition to get in and out and thats whyI want the high seating postion of th C max

keep you informed
Thanks for the help and info

Thursday is the 3rd and Friday is the 4th which may make delivery a little more difficult than you expected
