Hi

My new High Up build date has been confirmed, I should get it by early March - I ordered it in November.

Just a quick question to the experts out there:

Is there anything I should check straight away at the garage before I get swept up in the excitement and just drive it away?

I remember that my husband was so exited and blinkered by his new Golf that he didn't check under the bonnet and found that the battery hadn't been properly connected.

Thanks in advanceSmile

 A good dealer will check everything in the pre delivery inspection but sometimes they miss things out. When I got my new UP! the radio didn't work, I didn't notice until I got home, so had to book it in to get them to fix it.

My advice is to check everything electrical. If it’s got alloys, check none are scuffed. Finally, go around the car a couple of things and check the bodywork and paint.

Check every body panel thoroughly, same with all of the interior. I have had to reject a few cars over the past many years. The reason we have the UP! is because the Fiat 500 we had ordered arrived at the dealership with a large dent in drivers door. The sales manager just laughed and said this happens all the time, and easily fixed. So I advised him to fix it and sell it to someone else.
Because of so many bad experiences I ask the salesperson to contact me as soon as the car arrives with them so I can give it a thorough look over. Saves any grief on day of collection, when it gets another check over, as if car is registered to you and you reject it before handing over your cash they are lumbered with a used car. Also my reason for never leaving more than £100 deposit, using a credit card.
Sorry if I seem to be all doom and gloom, just giving my tuppence worth. In recent years I have rejected two Fiat cars, a Citroen and a Volvo. I also should have rejected another Fiat that I only discovered after handing over the cash, had a damaged body panel.

I generally travel down south for my cars, having travelled to Portsmouth from Glasgow to trade in my M135i for an Abarth 595! I always ask the sales person I am dealing with to do a thorough walk round of the vehicle and report back to me even minor flaws. I make it clear that I will reject the car if I travel a long distance only to find issues myself. Touch wood, I have never had a problem. I always do a thorough walk round of the vehicle myself and ask the dealer to tune my phone on. Then I hit the road and make the (usually long) journey home. Fingers crossed, VW Doncaster deliver the service I am hoping for.
