    Angry Missing TwinTop,Dealers from hell

    Since I ordered my Twintop in May its been a nightmare.
    Dixons said car be here 1st week in July,never came,then said 2 more weeks.
    2 weeks later the dealers DIXONS went bust, one week later Evans Halshaw took over.
    Same staff as from DIXONS they said they would honor deals made with Dixons but car now would be late Aug so I said I will have it 1st Sept for new plate.
    Evans Halshaw rang me today,they are NOT honoring the deal said they want £250 depoist off me and told me to try to claim the £250 off Dixons.
    So costing me another £250 **** the best bit is no car for 1st Sept ,it may be 2nd or 3rd week of Sept now.
    car stuck at Hartlepool waiting to be sent down but Vauxhall not letting have any new cars yet until all paper work done.

    + my road tax is due on my part ex on 1st Sept ,more wasted money

    Fed up big style.......Is it going to be worth the wait....

    I would personally tell them to stuff it.

    Surely there must be some exdemo or nearly new cars about which would be ready straight away and take the edge of the instant depreciation? I bought new once - never, ever again.

    2nd ones do not work out much cheaper on this model,looked at them before ordering new.

    Been having a go at the dealers,they not said they will except £150 deposit instead of the £250 they wanted at 1st.
    Still costing me an extra £150
    Do you all think this is a con and should I ring Vauxhall direct ????

    When they said they would honour the deal did you get it in writing?

    Take your money and go else where, or at least threaten to, either way it will get you a result

    How did you pay your deposit? If it was by credit card, then contact the credit card company and let them chase the money.
