A 2.0CRDi Sportage KX-3 in Techno Orange!


Hopefully have it by the end of May.

This is my first new-car buy - at the young age of 21 - so all I managed to wangle into the deal was a set of mats


Really looking forward to the new car - my current A3 2.0TDi Quattro (2005) is on her last legs at 150,000 miles and counting until the delivery date.

Any advice tips or tricks to help me along the way would be appreciated!

I don't know if this is a KIA thing or my dealer specific - but has anyone else been offered a service plan for the 3years for £350 or so?


Is it worth the price? I'm thinking yes but I not quite sure - never really got mentioned - just a passing comment which I plan to take up upon receipt of the vehicle.

Bit of a set back today - found out that the finance company rejected my proposal.

With a credit rating score of 999 with Experian - I was a bit stumpted as to why - but after looking at my credit report I guess it's becuase I upgraded my credit card with my bank a few weeks ago.

Hopefully I can get Experian to appeal my case with Santander so that I can get my Sportage with the lowest rate.

I'm determind!

Seriously frustrating!

I guess if I'm not successful in the appeal - then i can try again in about 4months now - but whether or not my current car will last that long without spending money on it - i don't know! :(

I wrote a letter to KIA Finacial Services and they reconsidered and accepted my application!



Couldn't be happier!!

Jonay, I am sure you will be looking forward to it.

I was at the dealer I am purchasing a Sportage from, and they have a car in the spec and colour you have on order in their showroom for sale now.

They are excellent to deal with, and I got a very good deal with them. Could possibly give them a call!

Triangle in Chesterfield.

It's ok - I'm ordering though Arnold Clark, their Aberdeens KIA agents.

Thanks though!

End of May!!

Good luck mate, we ordered a 1.7 3 in white on 05 Mar and we were told mid April (6 weeks). That has now slid to the right by 6 - 7 weeks. Might be worth checking again or you might end up disappointed when it is due to arrive to be told it has been delayed.

I hope it is not delayed for you.

Ha! I wanted either the white or orange one - if I wanted a white one I was told that I'd have to wait a minimum of 5months!!!!!!

WHEY!


I got a call from my dealer this afternoon to say that my Sportage has just been delivered this afternoon!




Typical that it's a bank holiday and that there are no administrators in today to get the registration number and I'll probably not get it until Wednesday - just as well tbh - I'm super busy with work and I've got an interview at 2000hrs on Tuesday. I've got 7days off come Wednesday anyway - guess what I'll be doing!




Best bit is that it's 22days ahead of when I was told it'd be due!
