maybe he knows nothing about cars, maybe he doesn't care, maybe it's being bought as a gift. don't judge until you know
#4
He's not too bothered, he likes seat, we just want the best deal for him
#5
'buying him a car' ... lucky boy.

I thought the just add fuel deals had a age requirement iirc 24

The Just Add Fuel scheme is actually Peugeots. The 208 would be my choice personally as the 108 maybe a bit girly for a 19 year old lad! :p Have a look here:

Such an outdated, poorly informed opinion.

That's funny because I live in France and even the French agree. The only reason they buy French is because it is the French way.
#16
Poorly informed? I run an independent so ive got a pretty good idea which cars last and which dont. French cars are cheap for a reason
#17
Does it matter weather its french crap or not as if its a lease car he wont be having any huge repair bills and only be having it for a few years. Op have you tried "we are marmalade cars" they tend to be aimed at the younger market, give it a google

I could be totally wrong here but it says buying not leasing in the op and i took it as just add fuel he meant a car that is reliable not the peugeot thing but ive been known to misunderstand things before now lol
#20
Was in the exact same position a month ago had a look at the just add fuel deals the quotes I got where about £280 including insurance (20 year old ) had a look around and eventually got a PCP deal and insurance for £220 a month all in bought the car and insurance separate. I went for a VW up (same car as the seat mii and skoda citigo) its one of the cheapest cars to insure for young drivers would definitely recommend the car
#21
Assuming by 'just add fuel' you mean you're buying a banger then I wouldn't worry overmuch about models, how well the individual car has been looked after is much more important. An 'unreliable' model that's been well looked after and properly serviced is a much better buy than a 'reliable' model that's been neglected.

The Leon/Golf and Ibiza/Polo of that era did have some issues but the common faults are well documented and there have been several recalls to fix various things. Make sure those recalls have been carried out as well as the required servicing work (new timing belt every 4 years for example).
#22
if thinking about a 208 dont get a 3 door the seats break and pegeout charge 800£ to fix the frame

Ironically the Germans think the same. And they aren't too bothered as they know the rest of the world is still convinced about German reliability (something that is now just a myth).
I tend to see more German cars on the back of breakdown trucks than any other these days.
