Vehicle Handover

Moderators.. Do you think you could setup a 'sticky' for Handovers? It would be good for people to list things we should check when taking delivery.... just a thought.

Delivered : SD4 Prestige / LUX / 5 Door / Manual / Orkney Grey / Vibe / Privacy / Style 7 Shadow Chrome / Ordered April 2011 / Built 9th Jan / Delivered 18th Jan Smile

Ditto - far too many stickies. They're just a bunch of stagnant threads to scroll through to get to the recently-posted ones. (And shouldn't "Where to post your photos" and "advice on posting photos" be one post rather than two?)

Back to handovers - what the hell do they do for 2hrs? I don't particularly want to spend the best part of a morning collecting my car.

RE: Vehicle Handover

2hours!!! All i want to do is rock up to the dealer they give me the keys, an evelope with the relevant paper work, and then a wave as I drive away. Reckon that should only take 5 mins.

(forgot that i may need to give the cheque for the balancing amount Wink )

RE: Vehicle Handover

When we collect the vehicle is it advisable to check that every paid accessory is present and in working order? I assume once I go in and sign the paperwork upon collection I'm stating I'm happy with what I have been provided with?

It's just if there is something missing I assume that's grounds to refuse collection as opposed to collecting and perhaps getting a subsequent refund instead.

After recent posts regarding cameras, lights and no action I have a slight distrust in what I may receive.

Arrived 22nd December - SD4 Dynamic Auto, Fuji White, Panoramic/Contrast Roof, Dynamic Plus & Lux Pack

RE: Vehicle Handover

I would have said a large part of the handover is giving you a going over of the car and what does what. Of course depending on how many gadgets you've ordered. They must assume most people would rather know what does what especially in Tim's case if you head out onto the A40 with a 450 mile journey to do.

Probably one of those things that dealers can't win, if they spend 10 mins with you, we'll moan we've not got much for our 40 odd grand. If you're familiar with a similiar car then worth telling them that at the time. Just my two cents worth.

Tekno, it needs saying. Please don't come on here and moan about everything. Not heard you say anything positive about the forum or anything people post. A couple of times I've replied to you about insurance and numberplates and yesterday when you asked about your 'finish' I (and maybe others) didn't feel like helping you. Everyone on here is very welcome and we look forward to hearing about your Evoque the same as everyone elses but chill out and enjoy the atmosphere on here.

..... back to handovers.

RE: Vehicle Handover

Charlie - if you don't like my posts, just don't read them. Personally, I don't come on here to congratulate and pat the back of a bunch of people I've never met. You won't hear me going "Congrats [user] - great car! LOL You're so lucky mate!"

I'm here do discuss, glean information and, yes, have a good moan about how awful some aspects of this car buying process has been.

But again, if you don't like it, simply don't read it. A lot of forums actually have a function to block users (not sure about this one though).

...back to handovers.
