Am I missing something here?
« on: March 09, 2020, 05:38:08 »
Collected my new i35 top-spec from my local dealer with 20 plate.  All appeared as expected.  The dealer insisted on pre-reg as the car was somewhere else but within the UK. I thought they are registering it because they have to drive it from the current location to my dealer shop.  I was wrong because the registration plate is issued from the local registration office of the dealer and there were only 18miles on the ODO at the time of handing over the keys.  When I checked the paperwork, it says, "Pre-delivery inspection completed on 10/01/2019", yep 2019 and not 2020. Am I missing something here?

I bought a car pre registered by Hyundai. It was registered 11 months before I bought it but the service book shows it was PDI by the dealer at date I bought it, not 11 months before.

If it was PDI January 2019 it must of been made 2018 to allow shipping time.

Have a look at the labels on the seat belts they have a date on them, its near to when the car was built in the factory!  ;)

Having collected our 20 plate Tucson N line 1st March with 4 miles on the clock from a prominent/well respected dealership and had a quick look in the service book to discover the PDI column blank with just the dealership stamp there.  Should I be concerned?
Given time I will check the suggested seat belts for the factory build date.  Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, just had a look, lo and behold it's April 2019.  That suggests its been laying in a compound for 9/10 months.  ???
