Well ordered new for kuga July 2021 now its been at ford dealers for 3 weeks as needs a update
But ford haven't got update
Won't release car because can cause security issue
I am so annoyed waited year only now waiting for them to get a update
Anyone else had this problem
what have you ordered if its a PHEV or FHEV its not an update but a recall as these are catching fire and fords ''FIX'' is to drill a couple of holes into a plate at bottom of engine. I have just rejected and been refunded for my 3 month old car. Think its ONLY these models affected

Just an update on my delivery, as previously mentioned I only ordered May 23rd and fell super lucky with what must have been a cancelled slot, build date was June 13th and it’s been delivered to the dealer today. Looks like it needs an update but holding out to take a Sept delivery so plenty of time for that to be sorted.

There really seems no logic to any order, people waiting months and I’ve waited weeks, this is my 13th new car and by far the quickest from order to delivery I’ve ever had.

Mine was originally due by July 24th to dealer so couple weeks later but still ridiculously quick.

Definitely no logic lol... The one thing I've learnt on this forum is no matter how long you think you've been waiting, there is always some poor devil that's been waiting longer than you have! It is what it is I guess 🙈

It will be for the defective E-Call system. They are not legally allowed to supply the car if this is not working. The modification requires the dealer to fit a new TCU (effectively a modem) which only takes a couple of hours. Keep pressing them for a firm date.

Do you loose the price protection if you delay delivery.

i.e if your vehicle is ready for collection now, but you say I want hold of until September. Can they drop the price protection

No they can’t but if you received a deal back when you ordered make sure they honour it because my dealer has welched on mine.

Was going too but when he said i could have it next week I thought just get it and put a end to this long running saga ,I've got a private plate too put on it anyway
Fair enough cant argue with that. I'm holding out but as I only ordered 11 weeks ago i've waited no time, not that it will matter too much as like you a private plate is going on.

@pillsburyb - No drop in price protection, price is as deal when ordered, was actually the dealer that asked if I wanted to just wait for the 72 plate. I'm thinking more about resale as only plan to have the car for the 2 years max.
