    Are you serious?
    The OP had a contract with a date of delivery on it, the car was running over 2 weeks late and he asked the dealer what the cost was to cancel the contract.
    I don't think it was he who decided to intercept the other car, it would have been dealer stock (not a customers car) because the other dealer wouldn't have surrendered the car.
    A few grand? The guy's buying an SSV, more than a few grand.

    Good on this dealer for doing the right thing and finding the OP a car, he should be appreciative.

    It's customers who bend over and take it in the rear that have made this country the bog it has become, of course car salesmen are the most honest guys out there.

    Lol but aren't you the guy who posts in the VF problems thread when you don't even own one, whining about how they're so faulty and that your VY is better, with no reason other than to stir up sh**? Ironic now you'd say that your existence is to prevent that kind of thing.

    Did you buy your VY new or used? If you've bought a new Holden lately you'd know how much the dealers eff you around, they promise X delivery timeframe just to get your sale, then the excuses and lies start, 4 weeks turns into 8 weeks turns into 12 weeks. Markalan1two said it was already delayed by 2 weeks previously, then another 3 weeks- that's a 5 week delay and a lot of people simply can't wait that long due to actually needing the car.

    Really, since when do salespersons do what is in the best interests of customers, they do what is in their and their bosses best interest. if you think otherwise than quit toking so much

    If they didn't act in the best interests of customers, then they wouldn't have any business. I haven't come across many businesses who wouldn't go out of their way to make their customers happy. Happy customers means more business which essentially means more profit, and THAT is in the best interest of the salesperson.

    There are a small minority of businesses who don't think this way, and they don't generally last too long either. Most businesses definitely do what they have to do to survive in such a competitive world nowadays. The loss of such a large sale would surely have a negative impact on the salesperson, especially when their pay is likely commission based.

    People are becoming far too precious.

    I think you are being a bit tough on the dealer given that a new Commodore can take six weeks and more from when the order is received at the factory and when the car is delivered from SA.

    My last of many new Commodore experiences (just under 2 yrs ago ) was the exact opposite of yours. The car was promised in approx 3-4 weeks which suited me fine. What I did not know was that the dealer(the sales manager as it happens) was working in the background to try and get me a car sooner even though I did not ask him to. I am then phoned up after just 2 weeks to say the car would be delivered and ready to pick up in 2 days. They had done a switch with another dealer which is common practice. Not only did they get it to me early but it was fitted with some expensive nice factory options I had not ordered and for which I did not pay. Pleasing to say the least. On delivery the car was perfect and has been ever since. That is an example of what these sales guys do to please their customers. This was a large Sydney north side new Holden dealer (not Suttons).


    Anyhow get some perspective. Whilst hundreds of millions of people in this world do not even have any clean water to drink ever, you are whining about a new car being delivered days later than you wanted. Jeez life is really tough for you mate.

    My car was in the yard when I bought so I only had to wait for the pre-delivery preparation.
    I had already sold my previous car so I needed a replacement pretty quick.

    If I had ordered a brand new car and it was 2 weeks late and the new car was going to be my work car (as mine is) I would be going off at the dealer.
    I know delays may be out of their control, but they are the supplier and you are their client.
    If people commit to something, I expect them to do absolutely everything to honor that commitment. It may mean that dealer provides a loan car if the delay is causing significant heartache for the buyer.
    Ford gave me a Fiesta or something for a week once because my XR6 was delayed. I think that is fair enough.

    No doubt things have changed in the last 6 months but from personal experience, each of my new cars have been delivered on time - most within a fortnight including a car I ordered on the 13 Feb, was built on the 14 of feb and delivered 25th feb (which I thought was great). That said, I'm always particularly careful when ordering and don't do queues well.

    If I were to buy a VF I'd be exactly the same. There is no reason to wait for any VF right now. Don't be a bitch and order something in the thousands of cars already built!

    Mmmm i unfortunately deal with the odd customer in my job like the OP. I sell Liptons ice tea, Redbull and Streets ice creams and 99% of the people i deal with are good sorts.....but then there is that 1% thats more important than anyone else in there mind.

    whats funnier is you had a fresh build on the way to you... now you probably have an old stocker from someones back hold.
    have fun at tradein realising your have a 13 build or someshit.
