Heard nothing even though I was promised any updates and have found out the components for the winter pack are not available
Spoke to fiat who said end of July for the parts so 6-8 week delays on top of the 10-12 already quoted
Fiat are a bunch of jokers new state of the art factory and not enough parts
Trouble is a lot of people, Fiat included, buy parts from other manufacturers so rely on them a lot. I do think launching a new car and not checking you'll have enough components is rather laughable mind.
This is the first I have heard of delays so I think I'll give me dealer a buzz.
Welcome along Fezboy by the way. What did you order?
Cross Plus in White, alarm, heated seats, winter pack, visibility pack, safety plus pack, nav plus pack and lumbar support.
Very disappointed in fiat and if they take too long I'll opt for a Juke Nismo or a Kia Sportage
its the modern method to 'manufacturing' cars now. its all just-in-time process. so if one part is unavailable, it has a domino effect on the production line.
I don't think its just FCA who have issues like this in production.
Still sucks though having such a long delay.
I ordered mine on 27th April and have been told it is up to status code 50 (should have been told this last week) which means "With Delivery Instruction, Delivery instruction has been sent to transport company" so it has been built and waiting to leave the factory. They say it should arrive before the end of the month.Mine is a Lounge 1.4 Petrol in Venezia Blue, Alarm, visibility pack and nav plus pack
