Looks a great deal even considering depreciation.

A new car for £499

The 'Happy Returns' scheme offers existing scrappage customers who bought a new i10, i20 or i30 last year a brand new Hyundai with the new '10' registration this March.

Buyers can swap their car any time up until its first anniversary, saving owners the cost


of the first service and the cost of renewing their tax disc. The new car will have the full five-year warranty offered by Hyundai.

Customers will have to pay only £499 for a new i10, £599 for an i20 and £749 for an i30, and are able to trade up and down the range if they wish.

Taking into account the savings on servicing and tax, that could be a cost to change of around £250 which works out as just £20 per month in depreciation.

At this stage Hyundai are not saying when this expires. Please dont keep changing the expiry date as we have heard that dealers are taking orders after this end of March.

maybe someone could explain why expired. I think to expire/spam something you have to enter a reason for everyone to see

I third the 2 previous comments. This seems like a good deal and i've never seen it on HUKD before. Why expired?

Now unexpired, and voted HOT! :thumbsup:

Good deal if they go ahead with it having purchased an i10 through the scrappage scheme I would be surely tempted.:thumbsup:
#6
Not got a Hyundai myself but this is a great scheme, i hope other manufacturers catch on.
#7
and you get the bonus of getting the full 5 year warranty again, rather than the 4 years you'd have left on the car you're swapping - good deal.

From searching, costs look as follows:
£499 for an i10,
£599 for an i20
£749 for an i30.

Outstanding deal, that! Was it announced earlier, to get people to buy 09?

Heat & Rep added.

This is scorching me thinks! Excellent scheme, this is about to get super hot!
#10
Voted hot as it seems like a good deal, but it's a ridiculous scheme: just going to increase the numbers of cars on the road, rather than reduce them which was what the scrappage scheme was supposed to be about.
#11
I don't have a Hyundai, but for the first time in my life wish i did! That is immense.

Is it possible they would catch you out on any optional extras you may have already and want to spec again? Actually do Hyundai's even have options? Joking...

Heat'd and repp'd

I don't know how the scrappage scheme was supposed to reduce the number of cars on the roads when it's a one for one offer. I thought it was supposed to stimulate the car industry/economy, whether that's worked or not I'll leave to other people to decide.
#13
HOT deal for Hyundai owners.
#14
so does mean you have to own a one of there cars to get this deal ??
#15
Sounds like a good deal, although the cynic in me wonders if they thought they was a chance of needing to recall the 09 model for some reason then this would be a clever thing to do :whistling: absolutely no evidence or reason to think that though just playing devil's consipracy theorist lol
#16
Well this is great..it seems that you can swap your car at any time up to it's 1st anniversary! thats saves you a service and tax!

BTW the scrappage scheme wasn't about reducing the overall number of cars..it was mainly to stimulate the car industry and to reduce old bangers..with this scheme there will be a flood of new economical cars to help stimulate the used car sector.

Voted hot.

It wasn't to reduce the numbers, but to get the older, higher pollution emitting wrecks off the roads....and help the car industry, although it has helped suck in more imports with minimum job benefits in the UK.
#18
Hmmmmmmm, we bought a brand new Hyundai I10 in a gorgeous blue colour only 3 months ago. Might be worth a go, I take it we can wait until September/October until the 15 registration comes out and then trade it in ?? Sharon xx

How can handing in one car and taking another be a way to reduce the number of cars on the road??!!!!

Funny thing is we did get a recall. A throttle cable that might come into contact with a part of the main wiring loom. Only a 20 minute fix though.

Ours is a 59 model so not sure if we can swap it over for a brand new one near the end of the year ??

It suggests that you can
Buyers can swap their car any time up until its first anniversary
But to be certain call your local dealer.

Hmmmm seems a weird one. Suppose if you have a spare £499 or more then fair enough. I currently have a 09 plate bought last year, not through scrappage and not a hyundai but if I was asked if I wanted the same in a new 10 plate for £499, I'd probably say why? You still have to pay them £499.

I suppose dependant on how much your car tax is it might be worth it (mine is only £35 a yr) and the saving on a service if you get it serviced, (I don't service mine very often, every blue moon). Quite good though that you can upgrade. So if you had an i10 you could if you wanted get the bigger model for £599 or £749.

The 'why' part is that this is an easy way for Hyundai to get a lot of 1 year old (or less) low mileage vehicles to put on their forecourts. The customer walks away happy with a brand new car for very little outlay.

Your 09 plate will have lost more than £499 int he first years motoring in depreciation, and need a service soon, and tyres etc. Really good deal.

#32
What an excellent deal. I think that if the manufacturers said that this was going to be done this year and next year too, I could be tempted into buying that car.

Your attitude to the deal is called 'looking a gift horse in the mouth'!

And why would you buy a new car and not service it - thus invalidating your warranty and probably leading to reliability problems in due course. Some people just amaze me. I'll make a note never to buy a used car from you!
#34
If it was me I would stick with what I've got. Simply because I don't have another £500 every year to spend on top of the payments. I have already forked out for a new tyre already due to a unrepairable puncture. I'm not knocking the deal it just wouldn't be for me and it wouldn't be good for a lot of other people too that don't do many miles. It is a good deal if you do a lot of miles and have to pay over £100 on tax and service your car, if you add up a service, tax and say 2 tyres then you are paying peanuts (well couple hundred or less) for a new car.

Actually it doesn't invalidate your warranty that is a load of crap. That's so that you panic and pay for a service every year. My old car was four years old when I traded it in and I had serviced it once, had about 20K miles. When it was still under warrenty, just by a few days two springs went and they fixed it no problem didn't ask me about proof of servicing, etc. I just keep my car for a few years and trade it in. It's under warranty if anything goes wrong, most of the time it's covered.

supposedly acording to another article I read it was to get nearly new models onto the market.

i called in my local hyundai dealer yesterday to discuss this deal as i have an 09 may registered 1.4 comfort with metallic paint------ they told me to trade up the car had to be registered frrom may 09 to august 09 and have no damage and less than 10k on the clock, i would also have to pay the £365 again for metallic paint which would total £964---- so not looking as great now,its a pity as i would have gained a cabin upgrade and ESP (now standard on the 2010 models).
If you want the basic red paint (non metallic) then the cost is £599 for the i20 upgrade.
Any extras you paid for on your old car would have to paid for again.
#38
Tried to sign in but dont know my affinity group?

Do I need to ring or is it in my paperwork somewhere?

Looks a good deal - I wonder about if you have to pay for extras like metalic paint even if your trade in vehicle has it.

Actually, jasee is right - up to a point. The scrappage scheme takes an old car off the road and replaces it with a new one. This scheme puts another new car on the road, but the one you trade in won't be scrapped - it will be added to the pool of nearly-new cars for sale (though not necessarily on the road).

A new car may be more fuel-efficient in use, but you'll have to cover an awful lot of miles to offset the energy that went into sourcing the materials, making it, distributing it, etc. Unless it's a real gas-guzzler, you'll be doing less damage by keeping the old one going than by buying a new one.
