Never the less "I have a 380 during this time"


How small and gutless is the Swift going to feel after driving the 380!
I can see a Swift for sale soon.

If you remember the edition when they featured the 380 for the first time in Motor magazine, they had the 380 doing a massive fwd burnout. So I'm guessing Mitsubishi says its fine treating the car that way!

Dropping in the swift as of this morning and have rung up this morning and confirmed my booking and the 380, today is Monday, the guy on the phone said somthing about friday ? ah well

They are yes charging me $22 a day for the 380 I guess that's reasonable can't expect everything. in the end it is getting fixed Hip Hip Horay! I'll take photo's of my swift this morning and then photo's when I get her back when I do! :D

Swift Cruise is comming up!!! They just made the time hehe! :wink:

Had my girlfriend's dad help change my tire this morning :)

Found the back tire completely flat this morning! =o Found this big chuck of wood periced through the tire!! that was slowly letting air out..

Running on the spare tire now looks exactly the same as the other tire as well expect it says max 80km/hr? It has full tread with those little pointy things poping out around the tire so I have to say im the first to drive on this tire wahoo! :)

All good about to ring the place and let them know It probably happened when I picked the car up as I drove it normally with the windows up, and this morning had them down and heard the tire flapping hehe no good!

Ok! Car has been returned! Really needs a big clean for sure! here are the photo's as promised! good job I did have some stonechips on the bonet hardly noticable anyone comming on the swift cruise feel free to ask me they have put a coat of paint over it but you can still see it,

The bat dropping mark is nowhere to be seen yippie!

The flat tire on the 380 they want ME to pay for it... The tire went completely flat the night the car stayed at mine it was a slow leak, Heck when I picked the car up from the place it was filthy the inside was messy crap everywhere, obviously not well maintained.

I had to fill up the water revisors in the car as it ran out of water... :roll:

I got the car with a full tank of fuel and returned it with less then 100km worth of travel left, seeing as my $22 a day did include fuel costs, they sounded like they wanted me to fill it up before returning it!

I was up at Redcliffe at 7:30am this morning the traffic was crap! I went out of my way to get the car up there today! I have work at 11am, soon as I bought the car back the lady was helping me and my girlfriend get OUR own belongings out of the 380 and into my swift...

Found it a little bit Rude and privacy invading and still do! as did my girlfriend..

I was a nice guy and cleaned the car completely for them before returning it! and did a full vacum out!

I have been booked in on the 3rd of April to get the paint protection applied on my car again! I'll be there at 9am and have to wait a few hours around while they spray the crap on if it auctually works heh :wink:

All in all a HUGE dissapointment.. the loan car cost me $66, and I can only guess they'll ring me and ask for $100 somtime today for a new tire :D

This thread sure is a true example of what can really go wrong! hhaha Glad it's for the public viewing as well! I can safely say I've had 2 dealership managers private message me asking what dealership is dealing with me but I have yet to disclose the name for obvious reasons..

The thread has attracted so much attention that I had one of the main ladies from the paint company call me as she saw this on the net! but as a customer I shouldn't have all this crap now to begin with :twisted:

So it took 4 months to fix... that is ridiculous.

Don't know how you put up with all that running around, shouldn't let yourself get shoved around like that mate.

If they want to replace the tire tell them to get Fkd. They can get it patched up instead. Think around $30. Even then, after 4 months I'd say you have paid for it with all the screwing around, phone calls etc.
