    car contraact 14th Mar 17 at 3:02 PM
    signed for a new car mid-february and 0% finance contract signed - now company is saying we need to pay £70 as they can't deliver before the end of April 17 and price of car has gone up - I am saying that as we have signed contract this shouldn't be our cost it should be the company ?

    There will probably be some "best endeavours" type clause in the contract whereby if its delayed outside of their control, they're not liable.

    What does the contract say?

    Answered in another duplicate thread, but my guess is new car tax rates.

    £70 a year extra is peanuts compared to the depreciation on a new car...

    You need to read the contract. Typically they have a clause which allows increases if the price to the dealer has gone up.
    I used to think that good grammar is important, but now I know that good wine is importanter.
