This might be of interest to anyone thinking of buying a new Citroen and has an old banger they want to get rid off. Could wait for the government to do something or go with this now. The £2000 is in addition to any other discounts on offer or that you might be able to negotiate, so you could get a new C4 Hatchback for £7,995
http://www.citroen.co.uk/new-cars/citroen-c4-hatchback/offers/

"Guaranteed £2000 scrappage cashback for your old car will apply to customers trading in a qualifying vehicle first registered before 1st January 2000 against the purchase of a qualifying new CITRO? passenger vehicle (excluding new CITRO?

To qualify for the cashback, vehicle must be presented with a Certificate of Destruction (C.O.D) provided by an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), a V5, valid MOT, be properly insured, legal to be driven on the highway, and have been registered in the customers name for a minimum of 1 year.

This Guaranteed Cashback is the total value that a customer will receive from the Manufacturer when trading in their qualifying part exchange vehicle for a qualifying new CITRO?, see dealer for full terms & conditions."

Edit: in my search for car offers also found one from Vauxhall to add to the list. More limited than the Citroen , but if it helps someone, I am only too happy to share ...

"(excluding new CITRO? C1, C2, C3, C3 Pluriel, Berlingo First, C3 Picasso, Dispatch and Relay Combi models)"
So pretty much any car you would want to buy...
Great offer though!
#2
As you said, very nice to get £2k off if you fancy one of the smaller models. There will though be a lot of half decent cars getting scrapped because of this.
#3
I would wait until the scheme is announced as the additional money from the government would be in addition to any retail offers - i bet if announced, Citroen would offer to double the allowance

A number of brands are offering cash discounts like £2000 off a Grande Punto so not really that special

Plus most of the key models aren't included - Cold
#4
At present, it's the best deal out there, so I cannot understand why people are voting cold.

The government scheme might never materialise and if it does the Citroen deal might be withdrawn.

widely rumored that a scrppage scheme will be announced an the next budget. This could provide up-to £2000 in Government support to anyone that trades in a car over a certain age for a more eco friendly car.

Already implemented in Germany and Italy so will be interesting to see what happens.

"To qualify for the cashback, vehicle must be presented with a Certificate of Destruction (C.O.D)..."

How can you present a vehicle that has been issued a COD...the vehicle would have already been scraped?:thinking:

Could be interesting if the Gov annouce something like this in the budget though...Ford here I come:thumbsup:

The more times I read that bit the ****** this deal becomes.

Its quite simple, if you have an old car that's not worth more than £500 coming up for an MOT shortly, then this is the deal for you. An opportunity to get far more for it without having that all important MOT with 12 months to run if you need to sell it

I don't know much about Citroen cars, but I have been looking and researching car manufacturers cos we have 2 cars that need replacing. I am happy to consider Citroen, nice soft suspension for long journeys. From what I can make out, someone has something bad to say about every manufacturer out there, from Mercedes through to Japanese and Korean cars. We have a Mercedes and a Ford to replace both of which have served us very well.

£2000 for an old banger and people voting cold, its a good deal folks The government may or may not do better and we don't know what strings they will attach to their deal, if and when they have one.

Thanks for that, nice :cry:

As I said, with Mercedes and Ford at the moment, considering another merc for me if I can find something reasonable for the OH - she prefers cheap cos I get less annoyed when she scrapes them.
#15
Some of the replies on this thread are plain stupid.

If you like your Citroens and have a suitable car to scrap this is an excellent deal.

It's no different to voting cold on a bargain Robbie Williams CD just because you don't like his music.

You should only vote cold if there's a better deal out there for the exact same product.

I drove a citroen Echo for 12+ years, from new, it was a nice car to drive and no trouble. It's been sitting in a barn for the past 4 years in case it came in handy for something...

Vauxhalls are no good..... :lol: ;-)

Joking aside, if a Corsa can withstand my brother in laws abuse they must have something going for them :w00t:

Does that mean you have to remove the cat, wheels etc and put them in the car? Seems a lot of work to me :p

I Love my C3 Diesel It has done 105000 miles and the only thing that I ever had a problem with is the power steering which the kind RAC man showed me how to clean the connections and touch wood no more problems. Its cost £35 a year to tax and does about 62 MPG gallon running around at 60MPH I only fill it up about every 3-4 weeks.
