Kia have actually put something in place to stop this, though I’ve been given slightly mixed messages by the dealer.HaxbyPete wrote: ↑Mon Apr 15, 2019 1:59 pmI fully expect there to be a 'black market' in these cars are there is such a long delivery time and such an ever-increasing demand. A lot of 'speculators' will be placing orders around the country and then selling their slot off at a premium when the three months point comes to people who can't be bothered to wait a year..
If the name on the order is changed in anyway, the car is either returned to Kia with a small penalty or the dealership is penalised enough to remove any chance of profit from the sale. The dealer described it to me as not even having enough to pay for the costs of the PDI.
This is why there hasn’t been any shenanigans around the first orders for each dealer other than what appear to be genuine mistakes.
