RS280 Cup.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We took delivery of our RS280 Cup on the weekend

Have been waiting a little bit for it, and love it.

Took it for a drive into the Adelaide Hills the day we got it, but it has to go back.
Damaged rear bumper needs to be fixed and the glass has to be replaced on just about every window.

Glass appears to have dust marks in it, which is distorting the laminate in areas.

Also, all the chrome striping has rust spots in it, and some how there is metal slag from somewhere trapped between the front windscreen, and the passenger A pillar.  They are working how to get that out.

Wow. Awesome build quality. What the hell? Sorry to hear that - you’d expect a brand new car to be perfect.

Yep.

It is parked up in our shed under the car cover until they sort out what is going to happen.

I'd like the whole rear bumper replaced. 
If the paint goes again within the 5 years of warranty, just wondering what they would say.

The glass.  No idea how that is going to be sorted.  Can just imagine the balls up trying to replace every piece of glass on the car.

Holy crap that is disappointing.
Just goes to show the dealer delivery charge is just a load of crap and a complete waste of money. If I were a dealer I wouldn't have let that out the door.

It's a new car, it has to be perfect.

I wouldn't stand for any of that. Take it back and bring me another one..................

[Sorry about the rant, apart from that is looks terrific!]

I'd love to.

Thing is I do not think there are any Redheads left in the country.

Was hard enough identifying this one.

We did get an email from Renault asking for input on our Renault Purchase.
My wife said she needs to calm down a little before filling it out. 😮

Shame a great car is being ruined by bad dealer service

Adelaide dealers are really bad thanks to the fact that there is no real competition here on most makes.

What a pain in the ass.

Are the windows tinted by any chance? Thinking it could be a bad tinting job for that side of things?

Nope, no tinting.

It doesn't even look like hard water stains either.  Very hard to get a photo of the defect in them.
