£3.5k to use a car for 18 months and then hand it back, leaving you with no vehicle!!
Also, limited to 7500 miles over the 18 months.
I fail to see the bargain.
Or am I missing something?


The bargain is, you get a brand new space tourer for 18 months but without the hassle of buying and selling, maintenance, worries about reliability. Leasing cars is becoming more and more popular as people realise that actually owning a car can be an unnecessary hassle and expense - especially when things start to go wrong. This works out at a little under £200 per month, which for some people they may be happy with given that they'll never need to worry about reliability or the hassle of buying and selling. Simply budget £200 per month for the foreseeable future and you have brand new cars permanently, with little to no stress.

5000 miles a year isn't much though. Thought this was a bargain and might be an option if I need to change the i800 but even we do about 6000 a year. Wonder if the mpg is anything like realistic as I know our van only does 33mog those figures look extremely high for something this size.

This has always been my worry, and as 'grading' a scratch is very subjective its easy for these companies to make a fast buck when the term ends.

True. Personally I'm happier making good the car before handing back than I am breaking down, having battles with manufacturers over warranty obligations, getting ripped off when trying to sell the car etc. Other than having to take good care of the vehicle and make good any dinks before returning, leasing is becoming a viable option. However, this particular deal isn't a deal for me. Mileage is way too low.

When you sell a car you own do you still get the same money for it if it has a scratch/dent on it? ps not interested in the deal as I know how to use a prophylactic so have no use for an ugly car with 9 seats.

I agree the mpg figure doesn't look very credible in real world use! I'd doubt that it would ever be achieved. That said, maybe VW have assisted Citroen in tuning their engine management software in which case it'll actually deliver 100mpg!!!

One would be better off getting this 24mth deal with 10k miles/year, which works out to be a net £1.17/mth dearer for double the mileage allowance (if you really need to get this car).

Intention you mean? Depending on the lease company to be fair: the last four leases I have had are fine with acceptable wear and tear with small areas of chipping permissible, light scratches up to 25mm in length and dents up to 10mm, providing paint is not broken.

that's all up to the discretion of the lease company, the point was you cant just necessarily pay the monthly fee and then give the car back at the end no questions asked and then lease another new vehicle.

Point is, when you sell the car, it'll be worth less due to the scratches etc. So it costs you money in greater depreciation.

You wouldn't be selling at 18 months old though would you so that point is irrelevant.

No intention of selling my i800. That's why I bought a black one, just need to take a few seats out, and the wife can drive me to my funeral. Save a fortune. Still buying hard drives from Amazon waiting for the right size box to use as a coffin, I've come close occasionally.

Not really. Lots of people sell after only 18 months. Plus, whenever you sell, it's still less valuable with damage so which ever way you look at it, you lose out.

How much do you think the average vehicle depreciates over 18 months. Unless you are driving a banger it's going to be a few grand.

Everyone always moans about not 'owning' the car!!!!! it's all about the money and you save more and it costs less to lease :D

Wouldn't you rather have saved more money in 2 or 4 years than have a piece of paper with your name on it saying a car belongs to you for double the price? I'll never understand how some people's heads work when it comes to saving money.... that's literally all a lease is about lol

Are you comparing a car that is worth £20k+ to a microwave that I can buy for £40 or a fridge I can buy for £300? Apply some logic. Surely you are capable of that?

Feel free to look up asset in the English definition and feel free to highlight where in your statement it specified car?
I do love though how instead of going "yeah yeah fair point you know what I meant" or "yes that generic statement I made isn't one size fit all and there are examples if you think about it where it wouldn't work or that I wouldn't apply it" you defer it as my inability to logically mind read that you didn't mean that statement as you have written it.

I am familiar of what an asset is, thanks.

You are missing the point of applying logic in the theory. Why would you lease a £300 fridge? You could of course, but the lease itself would pay for that fridge within one year or less.

No - I meant what I wrote and it is very clear in the context it was written. This is a high value asset that depreciates in value, where leasing/renting it makes more economic sense than buying to own (from new).

If you want to go off on a tangent to make yourself look intelligent, it is of course of a free country and you have every right to do so, but sadly you are not going to win such argument with me.

I am not arguing just pointing out your statement is flawed which I know you know but will do everything to not go ok you got me. Some people do lease both brown and white goods (some companies make extortionate APR fee's on them.)
I could point out that most people looking at that statement will infer car first and house as second and with that logic transpose it to all situations as a golden rule. It is that which makes it a sales pitch as it leads those towards signing whilst not considering the full implications from that initial inference (hence why its a sales slogan).

If thought about though it is easily picked apart, as most sales pitches are, as if the deal works to buy or lease on an asset has a lot more factors than the asset appreciating or depreciating (maintenance, lifespan required for, interest rate etc)
Even with you rewording to high value items that can still fall over - e.g. combine harvester.

The better phrase is the "the devil is in the details" - as I stated, and I do agree with you, that in some situations leasing car's can very much make financial sense for some in the right situations (albeit not applied universally, even if reworded with car unlike your statement).

As to your inference why I post this, feel free to make up whatever you wish, I don't intend to feed you on that front and it really isn't any skin off my nose - I will point out though that whilst I do find a number of your posts both useful and helpful - other times you are just ranting, closing down anyone with a differing view whilst making up what ever predicates you wish to make up to support your own made up argument until any chat is closed rather than the expansive approach by taking it as constructive feedback that help widen the whole discussion.

My statement is part of Economics 101. Why buy an asset with cash or worse still with finance, that depreciates in value, when you could rent and pay 30% of its value at its most efficient capability? You still have not answered my question.

Bertz99
Some people do lease both brown and white goods (some companies make extortionate APR fee's on them.)

Mostly the uneducated who are jealous of the Beckham's needing to keep up with a false lifestyle they see on ITVBe, no doubt.

Bertz99

Most people? So because you personally transpose that, you've extrapolated it to a generalisation? How wonderful!

Bertz99
It is that which makes it a sales pitch as it leads those towards signing whilst not considering the full implications from that initial inference (hence why its a sales slogan).

No one is forced to do buy anything on a "sales pitch". If people are too naive, that is their problem.

Bertz99
If thought about though it is easily picked apart, as most sales pitches are, as if the deal works to buy or lease on an asset has a lot more factors than the asset appreciating or depreciating (maintenance, lifespan required for, interest rate, depreciation etc)

In this very instance, items like maintenance and insurance are negated because that's applicable to whether you bought or leased it. Leasing a new car is preferable because you can often beat the depreciation rate, avoid paying VED (at least directly) and avoid any forms of interest rate (as it's not a PCP)

Bertz99
Even with you rewording to high value items that can still fall over - e.g. combine harvester.

Many farmers lease combines. Smaller farmers own ten year old models.

Bertz99
other times you are just ranting, closing down anyone with a differing view whilst making up what ever predicates you wish to make up to support your own made up argument until any chat is closed rather than the expansive approach by taking it as constructive feedback that help widen the whole discussion.

Such as when? I don't make up stuff. I relay facts and correct people who post false statements.

Dude. You knew full well what he meant. No mind reading needed. As a general rule of thumb, for larger investments, his statement is true. And everyone but you seems to accept it. For some reason you feel the need to extrapolate it to items that aren't even available for rent/lease. Play the game mate, don't be a douche.
