Default Did not get my 407. Broken promises by dealer.

The 407 was transported to me today, and I took another test drive in it.
Most of the things that needed to be fixed were, but others were not.

For example:
The dealer promised that the sidelight bulb issue would be fixed, it was not.
The A/C was supposed to be working, and it was supposed to have been re-gen'd yesterday, but it was not working today, probably a hole in the condensor. The Tow bar was supposed to have been wired up, but was not.
So it went back up in the lorry to the dealer. The manager said the best thing to do would be to give me my deposit back.
But Feck it, I wanted that car. I had test driven it, I had researched it, I liked the colour, I had looked all over it, I had spent money driving up to look at it, then again to get it, to find that it was not ready, but in my anger, I agreed with the manager.

I am just astounded and amazed and disappointed that the biggest dealer in NI couldn't sort out the issues with it.

sorry to hear you had issues...when you first mentioned the faults/issues did the sales guy write them down or just listened and nodded?

if the latter maybe he just forgot, but professionalism would of told him to write them down

Maybe they don't like customers which are too switched on.... rather sell to someone who hasn't a clue, and will be out of warranty long before they have any comeback. Shame to have 'wasted' money, but there are plenty more 407s out there!

He wrote everything down on Saturday, even highlighted the lines in highlighter pen.
The manager says the car is costing too much money to fix up and they are going to sell it at auction.
Now I have to go looking yet again, and it may not be a 407 this time.

Name and shame! They were either unscrupulous enough to sell it with these faults.

Or incompetent enough to not see them and see how much it will cost to fix.

The dealers were Hursts used car sales, Newtownabbey, Belfast, part of the lookers group.
What good does it donaming and shaming here. What I should really be doing is contacting the local press.

You'd spend too much time doing so and not really achieve much.... at least you've got out before any further trouble with them should a warranty claim have arised.
