yeah it sucks. the whole point of buying the focus was to get something reliable. it's been worse than the croissant.

another renault seems like a good idea from here! i'd really like a forester to be honest, but i think i'll be stuck with another ford.

if facebook groups are to be believed, with a bit of hard nosed negotiating i'll be able to get a brand new focus for around a $3k changeover, or pay the extra/over for a kuga or territory. it sucks that my current focus is a piece of shit, but getting a brand new one for $3k would be ok i guess. it has a "conventional" torque convertor auto and is less ugly than mine. the kuga is boring and ugly but the wife likes it better. a territory diesel would be great but they depreciate like sin. we'll go and drive them tomorrow, they'll make me a shitty offer on monday, i'll ask for a better offer on tuesday, they will give me another shitty offer on wednesday and i'll threaten to go to QCAT, they'll make another almost-good-enough offer by thursday and i guess by next friday i'll have emailed the CEO of ford australia and the deal will be done.

We are still waiting for a delivery date for our cars. We were told 5-8 weeks and would be April delivery. Signed the contracts on March 1st. Now it MIGHT be May delivery but they can't guarantee anything.

Very frustrating.

eug; next time you should make it a condition of the deal for them to give you a loan car if delivery drifts beyond a certain date. my focus was delivered 4 months late and I had a brand new falcon e-gas for the whole time. I put over 6,000km on it, it was a great car. I offered to swap it for an older car a couple of times as I felt bad about all the km, but they didn't want to do it.

Cheers for the heads up.

We are also concerned as rego is due n both cars shortly. If we have to pay it we will be asking for something in return. Tyres are also getting low and they are both due a service. All extra money we didn't think we would be paying.

Still no cars or an real idea when they will arrive. Meant to be May delivery but surely they would need to be on the boat by now to get here in time?

I really need to find a job that I enjoy. I went back to my old employer due to 'promises' so I thought I'd do the 30% of things that I didn't like to get further ahead. That 30% is now 95% and they are being arseholes about everything too.

so things aren't going as quickly as i hoped with ford. i've written to the CEO of ford australia at his home address, as well as the other 4 directors of ford motor company of australia. i was polite enough and just asked them for help, but it doesn't seem to have achieved anything. i have emailed the ACCC and they reckon they are looking into it but there isn't much they can share with me. i've also started QCAT proceedings but i reckon it'll take a while so i've been pestering them on facebook in the hope we can negotiate something ahead of QCAT. i don't expect they'd like me very much by now, but i'm surprised they haven't tried to make me go away.

The delay is perhaps due to legal advice being sought by those concerned parties regarding your borderline stalking lol
Sorry to hear it's dragging out, but I guess a car purchase is harder to resolve than a phone plan etc due to the relative value
