It used to be that you get a bigger part ex as they could take that out of the discount on the car.

But with this car, no discounts are being offered.

Just spoke to my dealer. Despite my car being a Nov 2020 build, it’s still showing as in .Mexico. He said only 2 of the cars ordered from him are shipped. Both SR models. He told me That prob gives an indication of where the issues lie.......
Bummer. Don't understand why that would be. Yours is the same as mine only built a couple of weeks before. Can't see that it is an ER problem if it is still over there.

Don’t get it either. I’ve just sent Rebecca a rather sharp email though expressing my disappointment and told her I await a response re compensation before I decide whether to cancel as I’m fed up with the whole lack of communication and clarity.. first time ever buying a ford (I know it’s a first for them too selling online) and the whole process as we know has been shambolic to say the least.

Yes in light of @Markyj's comment earlier I have requested a Vista update and shipping list confirmation from my dealer.

I'm hoping the reason he hadn't reached out to me was because I told him about the shipping situation so he may have presumed I was better informed and already knew for sure.

I hope you told her what you said here. I have just sent her an email saying almost exactly the same. It'll be interesting to see what she says to you

Sarcasm alert....

The whole situation of us not being sure if our cars made it onto the boats - if only there was a communication process on a web portal that would allow them to simply show us without having to go via the dealerships and rely on them to reach out to us......

I mean something like this would be ideal....

Sorry to be a pain but can anyone confirm the length of the home charging cable that comes with the scarlet pimpernel mache as I am working out the location for my podpoint charge point ?

Don't recall ever seeing it anywhere. Probably about 5M

You mean just the Type2 cable and not the Varicharger?

Spookey. Just have saying that you guys aren't getting any confirmation from dealers. I'll let you know what she says.

It's about this long..... ;)

Joking aside I would say 3 - 5 meters. I'm basing this purely on the length of what Toyota supplied with my PHEV (3m)

I ended up buying an 7.5m one from www.evcables.co.uk
