The other day, my family member Volvo S60 decided to flip its lid and break its steering mechanism - being a 13 year old car and only worth very little, I spent the day with them looking at brand new cars. After testing a lot of cars, they finally settled on a brand new 1.6 DTEC SR Civic fully kitted out in Metallic Twilight Blue with a delivery date of 11th July. I joked with the sales rep stating lets see if Swindon can pull that one off to which he laughed and said, yes, lets see, but they have them in stock. Yesterday came and went. Honda called - "Slight delay at factory due to machine malfunction - it will be delivered Wednesday (tomorrow)" Honda called again today - "won't be for another week - we accidentally ordered it as an estate and not a hatchback" Lets see how long it actually takes for them to deliver the Civic. Knowing my family member however, it won't be too long before they cancel if this carries on.
