It's an excellent first car you're very lucky we'll done.
PS don't listen to the VanityWagon sceptics.

Could that be a pre-registered one?

Might be good to point out that Kia's still come with a 7 year warranty. 7 Years of trouble-free driving.

Heat op. Good deal x

Probably worth mentioning the price of some of the cars in your post (from £13,950)
Thats just the example, click on the find a car link, filter on approved used, and there are 3 just under 11k, so only a 3k deposit

I appreciate the deal isn't for everyone, but not a bad finance deal for anybody looking for a nearly new ceed

Kia Picanto VR7 1.0 5 door - £8,995.00 (possibly £400 less)

19
Okay, reasons why you wouldn't buy this car... It's ugly. It's got a weedy engine. It's only got 3 cylinders. It's a granny car. It's not a Beemer. It's not even a 5 year old Beemer for under £5k!

I know this is a dead post but I thought I'd do a quickie update just in case anyone thinking of buying a Picanto stumbles on this...
Okay, so the car is now 18 months old and has covered just over 10,000 miles. Average fuel economy over that time has been 55.9 mpg (according to the trip computer it's 59.1 mpg but that's too optimistic and doesn't tally with what actually goes in the tank). Nothing has gone wrong with the car. The 1 year service was done without fuss and effectively cost me £33.33 under the three services for £100 deal. Kia didn't try and stiff me for 'extras' like changing the pollen filter which was good. Fully comprehensive insurance for the Picanto is costing me £140 a year (from M&S) and UK recovery and breakdown about £22 (from Start Rescue). There's currently no road tax to pay. So excluding depreciation, the car is costing me roughly 11.5p/mile which is pretty good. Yes the car's looks are a bit strange and yes it really doesn't like going up hills but 97% of the time is sits on the drive doing nothing so who cares?
Overall I'm pleased I opted for the Picanto and am glad I ignored the car magazine reviews which frankly talk a lot of drivel. I've come to the conclusion that Kia are the 'new Toyota' in that they offer sensible cars at sensible prices to sensible customers. So that's a thumbs up from me then!
This post is dead but just in case anyone's interested, after 1,500 miles my Picanto's averaging 57.5 mpg. Not great but not bad either...

Can get a fabia reaction for the same price. Larger car, bigger engine, higher residuals. Better value for money.
Is this the same Fabia Reaction which is advertised at £9,690 on-the-road (so higher price), costs £105 a year in road tax, has worse fuel efficiency from an ancient VW engine, comes with a limited 3 year warranty and only qualifies for free 3 year servicing if you take out the exorbitant 7.9% APR finance deal??

Thats the one but it is only that on the Skoda website. It is £8995 everywhere if you actually look or use the search function on here.

It is a dam sight better engine than the 1.0 in this. Comes with a full 3 year warranty, 3 year breakdown. The servicing package is included with the finance and works out better than a personal loan depending how much you need. You will also find that if you have a good credit score you will get the APR much lower (got 5.3% last year on a VRS with the servicing deal and then paid off the finance after a week and still get the servicing.) so would hardly say exorbitant.

You also fail to mention the breakdown cover and much more limited warranty in the OP?

98% of that list you get on the majority of cars. Auto stop start I always disable because it can catch you out and auto-lock speed sensitive door locking I don't want. But their again my desires.

Why don't you want that? I find it a great feature, especially on a five door car, stops scumbags opening your boot/rear doors when you're at the lights.

I have a button on the dash for that, Dacia give you the driver select option.

Not really a valid reason for not wanting a useful feature, doing it yourself relies on your remembering to do it every time you set off or after someone opens a door. Only people I can see it annoying is taxi drivers.

I bet you don't like auto wipers and lights either.

Well it's like this Oddball, here in Spain we get distraction robberies at supermarket car parks, service and filling stations etc. were the first of 2 people working together taps your window and points to the rear of your car and you are supposed to get out and look at some imaginary fault he has told you about, when you get out his accomplice opens he passenger door and steels whatever is handy, Ladies handbag, mobile phone you get the picture so you get used to doing this automatically when you get in the car after you have put your shopping in the boot or back seats as I sometimes do.
If I am just getting in the front drivers door on my own I just use the key in the door as that only unlocks the one door.
I don't want auto wipers because I use a rain away product that does not require wipers to be used above about 40/45 MPH, so it's nice to have control over them, as for lights well after over 55 years of driving I think I am capable and able to know when to put on the lights and do it myself, but that is a good idea for the numpties who are ignorant of one rule of the road not in the Highway Code "See and be SEEN"
Answer your smart Arsene Wenger response?

Still doesn't explain why you wouldn't auto locking doors, guess you're just nick-picking at the car. TBF I probably would too if I drove a Dacia. ;)

Why the hell would I want auto lock doors if I do it myself before moving off Dummy they are already locked or can't you grasp that. And TBF I have nothing against Kia cars except their rise towards the Ford Vauxhall prices.
As for Dacia nearly every person I pick up from the airport or take there comments on the comfort and the quality for the price and most people have seen the adverts on the telly and expect Lada quality and can't believe the price I paid. £12,000 for a car as big in volume as an Octavia Estate and pulls like a 1.9 diesel even though it is only a 1.5 diesel with 80BHP, and I do know because I used to own an Octavia 1.9 Estate.

Auto door locking would be even more important living in Spain. Even if you do lock your doors every time you pull away, having it as an auto feature removes the minor chance of you one day forgetting. It's a none issue, much the same as the fridge light turning off when you close the door, yes you could use a torch but why would anyone.

You are determined to have the last word even though you are so wrong, so you can have it.
What am I wrong about? How does auto door locking hinder your life? To the majority of drivers it's a benefit and a simple but effective safety feature.

You're making me jealous!
I've noticed a few on the roads now and they look pretty good, cant wait. Hoping to get mine on Friday! Few weeks quicker than expected.
Keep me posted on what sort of mpg you do and any tips you might have. Hopefully wont have to compare faults!
Got my White Diesel 1.5 CDRI !

Love it - new styling which looks alot better - goes some and seems fairly good quality.
Went for the black did you - I was too tight to pay for paint! I was at the top of my budget though and as there were really boring colours for extra's (black and silver I think), went for the standard white. I know white cars are difficult to keep clean - but in my experience black is similiar and every other car is silver now.

Think you might have got ripped of with the administration pack fee - I never got charged that - what did you get for that?

Managed to get free mats and tank of diesel - I didn't think there was much else to bargain for with scrappage.

The Permashine sounds like an expensive add-on - the paint comes with its own warranty, why do you need more? Wax it and it stays shiny for longer! Or our petrol station if you spend over £30, you get a free carwash.
Only thing to add is has anyone got any experience of a coating called Permashine. Being offered for £300 on top, meant to provide additional protection to paintwork and scotchguard the interior - with a 5 year guarantee. I usually wouldn't go for add-ons but am curious if this means I can go for longer without washing it ;) Haven't taken them up on it yet.
Gone for a Black Strike diesel, costing £8232 (7700 + 383 for the colour + there was an administration pack fee of 149 which was annoying, get a full tank in return - small consolation I know)
Looking at a 12 week delay for '10 plate, which I don't mind too much, just means my fuel is costing twice as much as it will if I had it now. Going to be downsizing from a 2.4 Petrol auto costing £400 a year in tax (not the car being scrapped, will sell in April), so should be quids in in 4-5 years I reckon.

Not sure about Kia, but Nissan offer scrappage deals on 8-10 year old cars for all their British built models. Can I ask how Hyundai are offering the scheme on cars less than 10 years old as I couldn't find anything?

BTW, my car that was registered Sept 2000 has gone kaput so that's why I'm interested.:-(


http://www.hyundai.co.uk/tradeupgrade/:)

Unfortunately for you, it's a trade in rather than a scrappage scheme so includes the clause "the trade in vehicle must also be in good general condition, free of any major mechanical faults and bodywork damage, and its actual mileage must not have exceeded 100,000 miles" in the T&Cs.

Good article thanks.

I think the offer from the government is rubbish and more smoke and mirrors.

Personally I have a ten year old toyota family car and the deal is no good for me. A like for like replacement is going to need me to find 14 big ones - NO CHANCE

However my retired parents would be ok switching a ten year old focus for one of these Kia's - 5 year warranty for £4K sounds good


The article makes a few good points however some people DO go to a dealership for their brand new car. This means that this comment from the article isn't entirely valid:

You have to buy through a dealer. This is not likely to extend to car brokers and car supermarkets, which are normally thousands of pounds cheaper.


Some people would actually rather buy from a dealership because if there are problems they can go straight back to them. This is the exact reason that some people go to Currys or Comet to buy a new washing machine rather than get the cheapest deal online.

Again, this comment from the article is not valid for those that already buy from their local dealership.

Brand-new cars lose a huge portion of their value immediately. Once you've signed the ownership papers for a £10,000 car, you'll normally be able to re-sell it for roughly £6,000 to £8,000; that's £2,000 to £4,000 less in an instant.


So, for the type of person who always buys from their dealer then this may not be a bad deal. Don't forget that a dealer isn't going to offer much for a trade in on a 10+ year old either.

Having said that, how many people trade in a 10+ year old car for a brand new one? Not many! I'd have thought that most either trade in their 3 year old car when the finance has finished or they buy 2nd hand cars.

It's a good deal for those who were planning on trading their 10+ year old in for a small and cheap car. Hopefully the government will think about the comments raised in the article and extend the scheme to all new cars.

Please read what I said more carefully. I didn't say it had NOTHING to do with the environemnt, just that it was ALSO a convenient way of making more money out of those who drive higher Co2 emitting motors. What I was saying was that having that increase justified as an environmental tax makes no bloody sense when you consider this scheme is going to encourage those with perfectly serviceable vehicles to scrap 'em - at a high environmental cost - and buy a new car - made with an even higher environmental cost - instead of getting a few more years out of a vehicle that may be emitting slightly more polutants than a modern car but that's already paid the environmental cost of manufacture.

Oh, and if you want to play that game, how about proving that people are buying cars based on saving £30 a year in tax rather than changing to vehicles that get better petrol mileage which happen to coincide with cars in a lower VED bracket?



I read and understood exactly what you meant with regards to this scheme. However, there are too many people who seem to think that the government are using green issues to generate additional revenue and you touched on this. I merely asked for a bit of evidence that the Government are generating more revenue with the new VED brackets.

Clearly I can't prove the reasons for people choosing a certain car over another.
smk77;5028555
That's got nothing to with what I asked about. Increasing tax for 4x4s may generate additional revenue from some people, however, as more cars are being made with very low CO2 emissions and promoted as such the tax revenue from other people is lower. Before making accusations that changing the VED rates has nothing to do with the environment but is purely to generate additional revenue I'd like to see some evidence rather than someone statement.

What I was saying was that having that increase justified as an environmental tax makes no bloody sense when you consider this scheme is going to encourage those with perfectly serviceable vehicles to scrap 'em - at a high environmental cost - and buy a new car - made with an even higher environmental cost - instead of getting a few more years out of a vehicle that may be emitting slightly more polutants than a modern car but that's already paid the environmental cost of manufacture.

Oh, and if you want to play that game, how about proving that people are buying cars based on saving £30 a year in tax rather than changing to vehicles that get better petrol mileage which happen to coincide with cars in a lower VED bracket?

I'm a bit confused! Do they take the £250 from your card and hold it? I don't have that much in my account. Can I still do it?


Yes for insurance purposes. And No you can't if you can't provide the £250. :thumbsup:

Have applied for a laugh.....will report back if it works. Heat added.
