You patently don't understand cars. I wouldn't recommend buying one of those cars with 100k on the clock but 50/60k, every time. Have you ever driven one of these or in fact a AUDI or BMW. The driving experience makes it a no brainer.

1st hand I've seen scores of people go for brand spanky pieces of poo and always regret it.

Each to their own but this is not a HOT deal, no matter how you dress it up.

Jason Plato has no complaints, and he is leading the BTCC in his. IF you want cheap motoring for 5 years with no surprises then this is a deal. Regarding the bmw/audi argument, most people are not that bothered about a "driving experience" and just want to get from A - B. I have an Audi and do a lot of miles, but if i was just doing a school run / shopping trips then this would be a great choice.

Why? Where can you get an Audi or a BMW with 50-60K on the clock second hand with a warranty, where can you get that from, not all of us are mechanics able to fix things when they go wrong, and buying second hand is truly a gamble with cars.

This is a hot deal for a brand new car with a comprehensive warranty.

....but with 5 year warranty, 5 years servicing, 5 years roadside assistance, 5 years annual vehicle checks and 5 years MOT test warranty available on this vehicle at extra cost and ASSUMING you keep it for 5 years you could then almost throw it away after that!!!

We bought a Kalos brand new about 4 years ago. Despite all the bells and whistles and despite a 90bhp 16v engine this thing wouldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding. It went back and forth the indifferent dealer who could find "nothing wrong with it" despite the fact the 6 year old 120k+ non turbo diesel 206 I had to drive would out drag it significantly. It would cut out at junctions and the brakes would make massive amounts of noise, but there was "nothing wrong with it"....

It was a complete dog to drive, like the suspension was made out of glass, gears were stir and push and it drank fuel!! We paid nearly 9k for it and it was shocking. So was the service. We sold it 18 months later as it was so bad we couldn't stand driving it (It was a liability on the motorway), We got £5200 for a car that cost us £9k 18 months previous and only had 8k on the clock.

That was the first and last time I will ever throw away money like that. This is not hot, you will just get grief with it and you will be driving it in 6 months time wondering why you did it and you will be stuck with it.

Audi, BMW? ...can you live with everyone thinking your a bellend tho?
I agree with the spanky poo comment tho, you nailed it there :P This deal is a false economy imo.

In your opinion. That a lot of us disagree with.

As for the comment about not understanding cars.. maybe you don't understand finances and the fact people would also benefit from any warranty as well as cheaper car insurance and probably car tax than having a few years old bmw etc.

That said.. this isn't going to be a great car like the others. It'll just do the job for those on a budget.

Yeah because it's same car....

The 5 year warranty is worth very little. The dealer won't be able to fix/sort it anyway, having dealt with 3 of them I can only draw the conclusion I might as well have taken my washing machine to them

What a stupid comment, just shows how little you know about cars and depreciation.

Good deal. Probably what the cars worth. But at least you are getting what you pay for. Personally wouldn't touch a Chevvie, but this is a really good deal and should fit the bill for a lot of people.

Fair comment. LOL.

In my defence I do have an XF on order and if driving it means the odd bellend comment comes my way, so be it. :)


People can disagree as much as they like. There's a reason this and the other model have been discounted so much.

OK the 'patently don't understand cars' comment appears condescending but this isn't a sensible lifestyle choice just because it comes with bells attached and a ribbon wrapped round it.


It's a dog but good luck to all who sail in her.

Good deal imo.....car ain't bad either from reports I've read. Based on the new Astra platform if I remember correctly and the cheapest I've seen for the base 1.4 16V 'Exclusiv' is £10495

agreed, though id go for a lower mileage one...im looking for a bmw/vw/audi but new prices are eye watering and imo way overpriced esp when you add the extras, alot of which are included on so called lesser brands...

i have a pug 307xsi which has been good but will get a bmw/vw/audi (if i wanted another cheap car id always got for pugs - cheap to buy, cheap to run, main dealer servicing dead cheap too, and much better build than of previous years), always have a merc which is good (cheap to buy but can be ridiculously expensive to service, as for main dealer servicing forget it)

each to their own though....nice getting a new car but yeh could be false economy

i have driven a bmw and audi and imo they are overrated but you cant deny the build quality....however the lesser brands quality have improved massively over the past 5 years

Bear in mind that the car in the photo isn't the one you'll be getting.

As always with car adverts, you get to see a fancy, sporty model.

The £9k one will be ultra basic. Can't see it having fogs and nice alloy wheels as in the photo.

Where do Skodas sit within your budget? Very nice motors and still Audi/VW at the end of the day.

Ok let’s take a look at the depreciation factor here, this car new is as we now £8,995 on the road and in terms of its residual value lets really kick it in the nuts and say that in 4 years time it’s worth £1,500 with an average mileage of 60,000 (although I still reckon 4K is more realistic).

That means that this vehicle has depreciated by £7,495 Ouch you may say however take a 2006 BMW 318 ES (again with average mileage) Brand new this car would have cost you around £20,000 + four years down the line they are now worth around £8,500, meaning it has lost around £11.500 BIG ouch.

My point is people should stop talking **** as pricing and residuals are all relevant!
Do not get me wrong this is NOT A FANTASTIC car but it is a FANTASTIC price and to all those who buy one I salute you!

It's easy to vote hot but would you actually dare to put your own hard earned (or hard borrowed) into this thing? If you have no real interest in cars, are not very discriminating or image conscious and plan to drive it into the ground then maybe it's OK, but if you plan to trade it on after a few years you may find your 'bargain' wasn't so cheap after all. Fact is though, a brand new car is very rarely a sensible deal compared to a fairly recent used buy.

Where is everyone getting this 5 year warranty idea from. Its 3 years! The site clearly states "5 year warranty, 5 years servicing, 5 years roadside assistance, 5 years annual vehicle checks and 5 years MOT test warranty available on this vehicle at extra cost
