My sister-in-law ordered a new shape Clio Diesel in November and was given a delivery date for January 15th.Renault then phoned and said that the car wouldn't be ready until 'mid' February.Although the car has to have a genuine Renault 'body kit' fitted before delivery I can't really see this would take a month to do.Now she is going to wait for March and get it registered as an 06 plate,and if the car is not ready by then the contract will be torn up and she'll go else where.I would have thought at a time when most manufacturers are struggling to sell cars that they would bend over backwards to get a car delivered on time,but this is obviously not the case with Renault(in the UK anyway).They seem to be of the opinion that they are doing us a favour by selling us these 'wonderful' cars..........
