Must admit my experience with Arnold Clark is very different. Both me and my son bought cars there and have had excellent service, even to the point of doing additional work and replacing parts free of charge during services. Might just be a local thing - we used Gateshead AC.
Mmm, are you sure you're writing about a car dealer? Additional work ... free of charge?
Yep - replaced full set of plugs foc when replacing coil pack. Separate occasion I mentioned wheel balance / tracking during service and they did both free. Also had two free full tanks of fuel for referring customers, and they will top up any fluids (oil, washer bottle etc.) any time. ....and no, I don't work for them or have anything to do with them....just a satisfied customer. Your experience may be different - my comments only apply to Gateshead, as that's the only one I've used.
Nearest dealer 150 miles away - I'd need the hotel stay straight away !
Got a free voucher last time, and going to use it soon, you can only book room 14 days in advance . Some decent hotels.

I didn't buy a car last time, and going for another test drive Sunday with no intention of buying a car.
Have to say ive had the same appalling service to the point of having to reject a vehicle because of faults on the car and it wasnt even a year old.
Arnold Shark were no help and ive had to go through the finance company, have a test drive by all means but please dont buy a vehicle from them.

It does happen - we've used several different branches over the years in Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, and Kirkcaldy - some are great and some are awful.

it's £9 pet hour and the extra insurance is £5 per hire so with a Young Scot Card it's £14 for 2hrs fully covered.
oliver231
is there a english,welsh or irish version of this card.
Don't think so.
I was also in Dundee and it was 5 min walk as I lived in city quay
its brilliant idea and this way they make around 100 a day for a corsa where else u would get return on investment this high
it was per hire so 23 for 2 hours and fuel also included in it

I know company has bad repo but I used this service dozens of time and great value for money even at £9 per hour I used to give friends lessons for free. always a good idea to pay extra £5 to cover excess charges
£5 per hour or hire

When I did it for my son it was £5 per hire up in Dundee. Hope this helps and the hire one hour and extra free was also for students and I didn't notice and age for this but may be worth checking just in case.

I seem to remember they had an offer a few years ago where you were supposed to get a 20pound (M&S?) gift card when you took a test drive. As a broke student I went along and went through the whole thing, having checked on the phone that I'd get a voucher, only to be told at the end that they'd run out of vouchers and there was no alternative gift !....buzzards!!!!
Shame you can't take the car for a test drive to the free hotel, stay overnight and return the vehicle the next day. Would be a nice little free weekend trip. :D

Anybody going for this "deal", enjoy having 2-3 hours of your life sucked away!
I will guarantee you, you will not get a test drive in a vehicle until you have committed to buying it. You will have to go through the WHOLE sales process and agree to purchase before a test drive and presented with your "voucher".
A long long time ago I used to work for this bunch of crooks.
Nobody will simply be given a voucher with potential value of at least £30 for simply walking down to their lot, wasting their petrol and wasting their salesmans time, only to be given a "free" stay.
Just be prepared to work for your voucher...

And the test drive is free? how would they profit from this?

Cheap insurance, free tax, cheap servicing, cheap on fuel, cheap on tires, depreciation friendly, 5 year warranty etc. What's not to like. Rather this than some old banger that will need constant attention. Got a shed at the moment, never again because can't be asked getting my hands dirty and dealing with independent a garages.
Do you keep your tires in your shed?


Yeah how did you know. I've got a set of michelin pilot cups for a CSL in there.

Hi, is the Renault twingo a much better car?
0.9 turbocharged engine 90bhp
Cruise control and lane departure
R n go sat nav
5 door
16" alloys
Again free tax and similar economy
10.7 sec 0-60
Rear engine rear wheel drive
Cam chain engine
£1000 more but surly a better car to live with especially using it on motor ways and carrying people ?
A new Twingo has probably been stuck together using paper glue by some failed Blue Peter presenter of yesteryear, engine responsibly sourced from Lego and bodywork would probably melt in the sun.
Really? Renault make engines for Mercedes and Nissan (1.5 dci) which are used in the A class and Note. I think they are leading in some area but I'm sure build quality has improved much. There loads with high mileages on autotrader so it more than capable.
But if Toyota did a turbo version of that car then I'd defo go for it, but for an extra £1000 for:
Start stop
0.9 Turbo 90 bhp rear engine rear wheel drive
Part leather seats
Cruise Control
Speed limiter
5 Door
16" alloys
Lane departure
Sat nav via R and go
All the way, don't get me wrong I've done a 460 mile trip in an aygo, build quality is good but that egine sounds like it was going to die. at idle the engine was very jurky and moving fro 0.4 to 0.8 for no reason. sounded like it was going to die lol.

Unfortunately French cars still suffer from poor build quality and poor resale value but I'm not too aware how reliable their engines are but you have to give them credit for some of their designs.

Toyota are renowned for build quality and excellent engines, the hire one you drove must have been abused a lot.

I'm getting around 38mpg and that's with a light right foot around town. Worse engine I've known for mpg. My 8year old 1.4 non turbo got over 42!
I've the same engine in my Dacia Logan estate and I get 48-53 MPG average. The dacia is a bigger car so I'd expect better results from this Twingo.
The 0.9 turbo engine will drop MPG significantly if u do over 60/65 mph on long motorway journeys. I normally stick the cruise control on at 60/62 mph.


​Could be worse could be a BMW or a VW or even worse a vauxhall as used by many a dope dealer and chav.
You could have replied to my comment with a simple 'Yes!', or even amplified it a little with 'Yes, I do really mean personal choice. However, you go on in great detail to lay out what I inferred, but did not write more about that which I thought would already be obvious to most, especially if they have read through all the above posts.
However, you have completely missed out two factors which can have a great influence car buyers.One is the power of advertising, and the other is the impact of reviews and opinions in the motoring press.
As for your last sentence, I fail to see its purpose as nobody has suggested otherwise.
As for me, a car is a tool of convenience to me, not my pet. If I could afford it, a chauffeur-driven limousine would enable me to make better use of my time, and there are a lot that think like me.
The point is that the OP has found what is a good deal for anyone interested in a Twingo or similar.So those who want a Twingo can save money with the deal, and the interest of others may switch to Twingo from some other similar. It is nothing to do with any other vehicle.So heat to the OP.

A car is designed to get you from point A to point B. always amuses how much snobbery there is when one of these deals appears.
"I wouldnt be seen dead driving one."
what an odd comment. Still whatever floats your boat.
A car is a personal purchase. If A to B functionality at the lowest price was all anyone cared about, we'd all be driving Dacia Dusters. A small car like this will become tiresome for long distance driving at motorway speeds - it will be trying very hard and it's interior won't be a comfortable place for a 4 hour journey. Ideal as a second car but not very practical as a primary car for most households. Some people will always choose to spend more on a car than this, doesn't make them money wasting morons, you get what you pay for (to a point) - there's plenty of reasons that a £20k RRP car will almost certainly be a better drive than this and a £30k car will be better than the £20k car etc. If you've got the money there's no shame in buying (or leasing, if the monthlies are manageable) a dearer car than this.
What do you mean by 'personal purchase? Surely, isn't everything you buy is a personal purchase? Are you sure you don't mean personal choice? Even that is not true, because for many of us, probably most of us, what car we buy is dictated by what we need to use it for. What is true for most of us is that a car is primarily bought for getting from A to B wherever A or B might be. It is obvious that this car is not designed for frequent long journeys or to carry a big load of luggage. It is designed as a city car, and being marketed as such, so comparison should be made with other city cars because to do otherwise is ridiculous. However, thinking that simply paying more for a car makes it better is also ridiculous.

By personal purchase, I mean a bit of personal preference comes into the mix when you choose a car which may not be entirely practical or logical for your needs, or even if 2 cars look to be very similar in their price-point and capability you may be strongly drawn to one over the other. All cars get you from A to B (if they don't break down) - some will give you better performance, some will give you better fuel economy, some have more safety equipment, some will give you a very comfortable ride insulated from poor roads or outside noise etc. People rarely buy a car based purely on a lot of ticks of preferences on a wish list using nothing but their logic or reasoning. There is no one universal car that does everything that everyone wants it to do at a price accessible to all.

Some people will buy a car they really like the look of/drive of against the logic of it being impractical for them (perhaps someone with a couple of kids buying a car with poor rear leg/headroom), some will buy a huge people carrier despite only having one kid.

Paying more for a car (new for new comparison - no point comparing a brand new Dacia Duster with a 6 year old Audi A3 TDI at the same price) will almost certainly get you a car that is comparably better than the cheaper one in one or more ways - perhaps it has a significantly higher output, or more equipment, or better ride refinement. A £20k RRP car will stand up against a £10k RRP car to justify the extra expenditure otherwise no one would buy the dearer one.

If everyone put all personal car choice considerations out of the window and looked at the car purely as an A to B tool, we'd all be in no frills/no thrills variants of the same car, differing only by the size/occupancy to suit the size of our family. You could get by using this Twingo for long motorway journeys, but you wouldn't want to unless finances dictated necessity, that was my point.

City cars are generally thought of as the most basic of cars - yes you can buy an Audi S1 or a Mini Cooper S, but the city car/supermini segment is filled with the cheaper end of the car spectrum - low on size, low on ride comfort (multilink suspension and adaptive damping etc.), low on standard equipment levels and (with a few notable exceptions), low on performance. Those are the main reasons why so many city cars have a low RRP.

Picking a car is not as simple as choosing Branston beans over Heinz to most people.

Paying more than £8k for a car does not make you an idiot or a money waster, because the drive is as important as the arrival at destination for many people.

Nice little town car (although I like big cars, suv's) But what does made me laugh is the speedo:http://vcache.arnoldclark.com/imageserver/AYRJNXE5V1-VUH1/800/7/
130mph - really?! What's the point putting this figures on speedo when more likely it will lift off the ground at 100mph with airjet sound :D Hope it has extend-able wings hidden in sidesX)
The point is very simple. Renault don't make the speedo. They buy it from an instrument manufacturer, and have to buy what is available while seeking commonality of parts whenever they can because it allows economy of scale. Now, while it would be pointless in fitting a speedo that could reach the maximum speed of a car, does not matter if it it can go far beyond? You might just as well ask why a bathtub can hold up to 60 gallons of water with you in it, when you only ever put around 30 gallons in it.

alright
Ive used Arnold Clark Audi and last week Mercedes Benz service sites in the past couple of years and found them very good.

Both are recommended audi / merc and have all the right paperwork etc so I wouldnt worry about quality as its original parts

Plus they were £60 cheaper than a nearer mercedes dealer, arnold clark came and got car and delivered it back where as the other dealer wanted another £50 to do that

Id recommend arnold without doubt
Actually pretty good. Never had any problems with my local AC Seat/Skoda branch. Fixed price servicing (Seat set prices) and they've always offered OEM parts along with the Seat ones for non-service stuff.
This fuel voucher was an unexpected bonus when I got my service and MOT done last week.
Car failed on a skewed headlight bulb, I hadn't put it in properly when I had replaced it and had bent the tangs, so they simply fitted a new bulb for £4. Also replaced my number plate for free which they reckoned was getting a bit past it as well.

But YMMV depending on branch, it very much depends on the service manager I think.
Mine is quite happy to match Costco pricing for tyres for instance if you ask.

Not a good deal. I got a Zetec Navigator Ecoboost in September for £88 less than this (from a deal posted on here). There is loads of haggle room for any of these old shaped models still knocking around.

I went to Phoenix in linwood and got the same patter! Didn't have a 1.2 to test drive so went literally around the block in the 1.4! Was told it was a 3 months waiting list for the 1.2 which is fine with me but they weren't amussed at that! When I asked for a brochure to compare the 1.2 and 1.4 to see what I was paying £20 a month extra for they didn't have one! The patter was the 1.4 road tax in free for the first year then £30, where as the 1.2 is £110 a year so I would save straight away with that in the first year (I later found out both cars are free the first year). Then they said they could give me a 1.4 64 reg at a bargain price - which was a grand total of £500 off list price - what was the point?!!?!?! They also tried to sell me a top of the range model as it have Bluetooth etc.... I corrected the guy saying this had Bluetooth, he said no, a while later I showed him the ad - feel like they are totally unprepared!!!!!! So left confused! Went home and looked up webuyanycar who offered me more for my car than they did! I actually went in to buy this car and now having second thoughts!

Did you go to the same branch? Or another one?
I think its a bs add to get you In the door tbh.
They didn't have any stings in at all, not even to test drive. I was inside a sting r and test drove an sri with the same 1.4 engine.
No not the same branch but they pushed and pushed me to buy the 1.4 and told me the sting would be at least 2 month wait. In the end the sales guy was to pushy so I left it.

Metallic Black, 7500 miles, 2 years... £114 per month :p

Jusr a shame British Gas can't fit until 6th of January :(

Was this from Arnold Clark?
Quick update (if anyone is interested). I picked the car up on Dec 27th - fine and dandy. Driven just over 230 miles since then and not paid a penny for electric except for the £20 ChargeYourCar bill for their RFID card.

Car takes a little bit of getting used to; especially the brakes :O(

Got the car from Evans Halshaw in Middlesbrough if anyone wants to try them - a bit lax in getting back to you but not too bad, I suppose.

Cheers, Panrix
i have a small black box before the mains unit which has a fuse inside it, i remember this fuse going before and took my electric out with it, the board had to come fit a new fuse to get me back on, wondering if this is classed as a isolator
Mightyforest they are not connecting the Isolator to my mains box, it is connected directly to the mains cable coming into the house at the box. When British Gas come to fit the charger they should let you know before fitting if you require one and where it will be fitted.
my car apparently ready 22nd , charger being fitted on 5th Jan, worried as i have a new mains box and no available switches left

Do they charge a surcharge for under 25?


Surcharge for under 23 I believe - with a licence of course ;-)
oddballjamie
What's the £25 for? Cheapest I found was £80.


I just checked this and you are right a week's car hire is £80. That's £20 a day for 4 days and 3 days free, and not £25 a day as advertised - a glitch? Thanks.

£70 for excess insurance is a rip off.
here we go ...

If you're quite happy paying £70 for something that's available for £20 elsewhere, you're on the wrong website.

If you use Enterprise book online via the phone app not the main website. They have introduced two price bands on the main website but not on the phone app. One band is for booking and paying straight away, and a higher price if you book online but pay when you pick up the vehicle. The phone app has the only quotes the lower price.
They're famously renowned for trying to stung people for the £500 excess for minuscule marks on their vehicles on being returned.
Yeah but enterprise advertise lots of different offers and never have the cars available at that price. This seems a good deal, have used them before and they've always been good.

Arnold Clark. Run like feck to the hills. Would not touch with a barge pole.
HertVR sounds like the type of person who everybody hates at work (Colin Hunt anyone?)
The prices are pretty much the same as Motorpoint for a same spec car, 63 plate with a similar mileage.
12k on a second hand car? Wouldnt buy a Golf...
Arnold Clark have had a 2012 BMW 320d Luxury model for sale on Autotrader for a few months now. I phoned about it a month ago & was told 'sorry now sold'. Reported it 7 times but it's still listed. As stated in earlier post Google Arnold Clark for some horror stories!

Indeed, your rant missed the point...

*sigh*

It wasnt a rant it was a statement of fact.

And it was a response to the "fords engine" comment. Its not fords engine and its used by various other manufacturers and it gives problems across those platforms too.

1.6 VAG TDi really is a dog...

Hows it a dog, relative to say, anyone elses 105BHP engine?

Its used all over the place within VAG.

I've it in a 2012 mk6 Golf, and have, over the last 20,000 miles got 66mpg brimming it every time.

Would love to hear whos comparable engine offers more?

Really dull engine. Not brilliant for economy. Nor great for response.

Ford's 1.6 TDI is better...

the engine in fords is a peugeot / citroen engine and is a horrid thing. prone to turbo failures, dpf failures, injector problems, etc.

that alone put me off buying one.

also, the golf 1.6tdi is quicker off the mark to 60 by over a second and tops out slightly quicker too.

and i'm getting 66mpg brim to brim...

The VAG 1.6 TDI is horrendous and even more problematic. The Ford 1.6 TDI is more reliable.

Any evidence to back that up? And the Peugeot / Citroen (its not a Ford engine) is frankly a horror story.

Yup plenty of evidence. Im referring to Ford's 8 valve 1.6TDCI 115 which is much better than VAG's 1.6TDI.

Lots of clutch problems reported on the Ford.

So of that big list of everyone posting all their problems, you could count on the fingers of one hand those that were about the 1.6TDI and of those 2 were relative to EGR valves getting clogged up on the 1.6 TDI (EGR clogs up on cars used on short runs only shocker!) and 2 were about injectors - most likely caused by using questionable fuel.

Wow! They're really troublesome arent they?

Personal experience as a motor trader with the Peugeot / Citroen engine fitted to Fords -

2006 Ford Focus 1.6TDI, 100K miles, turbo failure £1800, EGR valve £300, DPF failure £600 + £300 other costs

2006 Peugeot 307 1.6HDI - 57K miles, FPSH - EGR valve failure, DPF failure, £700 repairs

2005 Peugeot 307 1.6HDI - engine light on, no power, rejected by us for resale and sold at auction

2007 Citroen Berlingo Van 1.6 HDI - turbo failure, replaced by previous owner, replaced subsequently by us.

2007 Berlingo Van - 80K miles, engine light on, no power, rejected for resale, sold at auction

TODAY - offered a 2008 Facelifted Focus 1.6TDCI immaculate, 70K miles, engine light on, down on power drastically, could have bought it through the trade for £2800, but wisely chose to run a mile.

Bad engines, known turbo problems, £1800 to get it done right by Ford. Trade very wary of them, known to be troublesome

I would rather walk to work than own one.



All cars over 6 yrs old and not relevant to the discussion as we are talking about a new car...

You do know cars age right? So your new car of today is going to hit those same problems as the inherent faults are likely still there?

I wouldn't buy a diesel in the first place...

Not that I need this at the moment as I have no trips planned but if you have a trip booked to go on holiday in the uk, and your car isn't up to it, this could be a good way of ensuring a hassle free trip. That's a great price for 4 days and the qashqai is a scent enough motor for long uk trips

Half Price MOT's at Arnold Clarke During December £27.43

13
Arnold Clarke have made MOT's half price through December! £27.43 instead of the usual £54.85 Seems a decent price. I know some local test stations may be a bit cheaper, but this is nation wide.

An MOT for £27.43 will be loosing Arnold Clarke money for every one they do, the only way this can work is if they pick up the faults then sting you with the repair work. It's the same for any place offering these deals.

A local station to me charges £25 all year, and they only Test, they offer no repair service. So they must still make money at the low price.

Which is why you take the car somewhere else for the repairs.
I always go for a cheap MOT. Only fail I had in recent years is a tyre following a Kwik Fit £25 MOT. Took it to my normal place for the tyre, and as long as the car was back with them by 5pm the following day there was no additional charge. Using these deals is a bit like flying with Ryanair.
I used Arnold Clark's for years and each year I moaned about their garbage service until they forgot to secure my passenger side wheel back on. A few days later, my hubby was taking the car back to the garage and the wheel came off as he turned a corner. It very nearly hit a 6 year old going to school. Please don't go near these lazy rip off laughable "mechanics". Ask around, get someone more reliable.

Yes just like 99% of garages that do these kind of offers!

Any chance of giving me the names of the 99% so I know where to avoid

I wouldn't rent a movie from these sharks, never mind a car!
It appears to be limited to Scotland and northern parts of the country hence no good for southerners.
Im 22 does this deal apply to me? Can never find a rental company that will rent to under 25`s ffs¬!

This sham of a company need to go bust
Thanks for some useful comments,They tried to shaft me for over £200 for a MOT and service on a 4 year old diesel ceed with 26k on the clock. They said that it failed it's emissions test,and that it wasn't covered by the 7 year warranty.

Unfortunately for them they hadn't met met my wife,she complained loudly in the showroom as they were negotiating a sale of a new car. they quickly apologised and removed the excess charges.

You can get a good deal at Arnold Clark,but you have to be aware of there cowboy salesmen and play them at there own game.
The sales men will tell you blatant lies just to sell a car. Never again..
Would never buy a car again from this mob. All nice to you buying the car, as soon as out showroom they dont want to know you. Warranty not worth the paper its written on in my experience.
