    I phoned my dealer today to push for a delivery date for our new Swift Bolero and was told that the factory is closed untill 6th June for summer holidays:Eeek:
    Can anybody tell me if this is a fact or am I being fed a line???

    Taken from the Swift-Talk forum:

    Our Factories close for our Whitsun Holidays on Thursday 21st May and re-opens on Monday 8th June.

    During this period, we have staff working to monitor the forums and operate in our Customer Service and aftersales teams. If you have any urgent queries you can still contact your dealer or us through the normal channels, although some responses may take slightly longer than normal to respond,

    Blame it on those socialists - insisting working people deserved paid holidays. What was wrong with letting them have Sunday off? Country gone to the dogs. Bah! :)

    Thanks for putting my mind at rest Mel (y)
    It's just that when I ordered in January, I was given an estimated delivery date of mid June. That's not going to happen is it :crying::crying:

    I just ordered some stuff from Auto Trail on line shop; had an email saying it had been processed but wouldn't be dispatched until 2nd June due to annual shut down.

    Out of interest is that estimated delivery in writing, if it is doesn't that really pi55 you off, somebody would have known it couldn't happen, why not just be honest or more importantly realistic :mad:

    hope it is not too late (y)

    I thought you were going to say it was closed while they fixed the leaking factory roof :D

    That was a nasty slur, Is it true? haven't they discovered gaffer tape?

    No not in writing David. :mad:
    I'm sure they must have known it wasn't realistic and, as you said, I would much prefer an honest estimate even if it is a longer wait. I wouldn't have sold my AT Tracker if I'd known we were going to be without for more that 3 weeks.
    I will be pushing very regularly after the return to work on 8th June for a firm date.
