Very unlikely.........but if you did,it would almost be the best BOGOF ever
#3
Not really a deal if it's not advertised and you have to go and ask imo.
#4
I would think so as that's from the government (at least £1000 is)
I payed £100 deposit now £150 when i pick up the car, brand new del miles only march09 spec titanium X Moondust silver(new colour for March 09) £15,995, was regestered on 15march so i can have it on the 15 June( this is so they can sell it as nearly new at discount) car is sitting in a lockup waiting till then.

Advertised as the cars are sitting in the used car section with del mileage only stickers on them.
a few on site but if you ask can get them from other branches or there central lockup(picked mine from there)

sorry but you're wrong.....Merlin was right.

I recently went to enquire about the Ford Mondeo and i was astonished the fall of prices for a pre reged car which only clocked 8 miles.....I was surprised....

But this trend may not continue forever....prices are down now because....in the market, there are already lot of new cars with teh dealers and no buyers......like supply more demand less....

imagine when the scrappping incentive comes into effective.....these cars would sold off and right now car companies have cut the production so the equation is reverse.....supply less and demand more....price will shoot up...

so those out there who wants to buy one....my advise is go and buy one NOW dont wait for the scrap scheme to come into effect.....scrap scheme only increases the prices of hte new cars as it already happened in Germany....

hope this helps someone...

The major problem in the car industry is previously everyone brought a car on finance!!! To be honest all you need was proof of id and address and a bank statement lol. It was'nt like the car salesman actually knew anything about finance and they just want to sell a car and all the bumph with commission.

Now that everyone is in trouble, GE money in particular just say no.

Not many people have the cash to buy outright! Unfortunately.

Not really a deal as above.

Forgot to say. My friend is an accountant and he carried out some work for not naming car company. It was hilarious. Some guy came in with his car and sold the car to that company for £7k. In 1 minute the car salesman came out with a price tag and place £9k on it. It was one of the funniest story ever. He did'nt even bother cleaning the car.

Mine is on finance, I asked about problems getting finance with the current climate and sales guy said he's seen no change in the amount of people getting or being refused finance just a slowdown in new car sales( everybody wants 2nd hand):?
2nd hand prices have gone through the roof.

£25k for a Ford Mondeo, their having a laugh.
Compare the same size cars with VW Passats.
I would say the real price for these Mondeo's should be £16k-£19k.

These are false discounts !!

You can not officially get the money from the government as this is against the rules pasted below, but the dealer can give you what ever he wants

Rules for the NEW VEHICLE

· Passenger car or small van up to 3.5 tonnes

· First registered in the UK or after the date the scrappage scheme is launched and declared new at first registration in the UK with no former keepers

· UK specification vehicle

· Registered to the same registered keeper as the registered keeper of the eligible vehicle to be scrapped

Prices are list prices taken from http://www.ford.co.uk/cars/FordDirect
using a screenscraper from http://www.moneysavingexpert.com
cheapest i found for a new titanium X 2.0d tdci 140bhp was £19,536
still over £3500 saving!:thinking:

Used 58 titanium X's are still going for £17000-£18000

So would you technically be the 2nd owner?

I think this is a good deal, so heat added from me.

Whether the RRP is high or not .. a brand new car for around £14k is excellent value and the new shape Mondeo is the best in its class .

I paid a similar price for my pre-reg mondeo estate 18 months ago :thumbsup:

Not at all. The Mondeo reviews better than the equivalent Passat and Accord etc. Ford just need to get rid of the 'Mondeo' badge, as it carries a poor name. A lot of reviews are now comparing the Mondeo to equivalent 3-Series, A4 and C-Class. It's only let down by a lack of higher-end engines (ie, no 3.0 TDCi and no V6 petrol etc).

ninja edit: shame the 2.2TDCi 170bhp engine isn't in that list of Mondeo's - would be a proper decent deal then!

the 2.2 is available as are all the petrol engines i only listed the ones i asked about
2.2 175bhp tdci titanium sport £17500 list price is £27000!
was just out of my range thought.:evil:

Yes, as a pre-registered car will already have been registered. So you wil be the second owner. I have bought many pre-reg cars from dealers and it is no big deal as long as the price reflects. I have gathered the impression, over the years, that it is a bot of a con really. The dealer in no way loses on the deal, pretty sure in most cases they make a bit of a killling (something to do with volume discounts from manufacturer, VAT, and some being registered to be used for car rental). I am sure someone better knowledged will be able to explain better.

Yikes, that's a hefty saving!

I paid £10.5k cash for my 1.8 diesel Focus last year, which had a book price of £15k second hand and £24k new (yeah, a 24k Focus diesel is insane, isn't it? Got all the toys though, inc a 7" touch screen satnav which a lot of the new Mondeos have too). Ford were falling over themselves to be rid of cars, but recently, there's not a second hand car left to be seen at the Ford garage/s I use.

If I had been in a position to buy today, I'd be jumping at the chance to get the 2.2 sport for £17k ... ! That's nuts!

these prices sound great to me i was looking at teh new fiesta [cause i liked the pink one] was quoted well over 15k once they had added the bits on and teh car is much too small for what i need anyway! and they wante dme to have a much smaller engine only 1.4 :? as aparently they are sold out:thinking:

Yeah there is a clause to new cars and the scrappage scheme - something to do with a certain length waiting time and it becomes nullified? I think it is to boost poorer marques than the most popular.

The Fiesta has been well received and much like other Fords using the 2.0TDCi, the waiting list is longer than other manufacturers. I had a wee drive of the Fiesta and it was absolutely superb. Hope you manage to get one - the 1.6TDCi is a cracking engine and worth thinking about, but they are all pretty bullet proof. They still use the 1.25 from the MKIV that I had, albeit improved somewhat!

I was going to make the exact same comment. His cars are cheap to buy, however, after sales service is shocking. Just make sure that if you buy a car from this franchise you check the car over before paying for it. Based on my experiences of very many purchases you have to be prepared to accept crap after sales as a consequence of cheaper car prices.
#25
Very good prices, and some nice looking cars. Watch out buying on finance though as when the bailout bubble bursts then the real recession will begin.

Doesn't matter. You don't have to go back there for warranty/servicing work.

What, second hand? I should hope so, because the £17k~ for the Mondeo Titanium X Sport in 2.2 TDCi guise is pretty cheap. RRP for top of the range Audi A4's are much higher. Whether you pay RRP is a different matter.

New Audi A4 Executive SE: 2.0TDI Quattro is £27,395 OTR

New Audi S4: 3.0 TDI Quattro (still not quite top of the range) is £33,070 OTR

New Audi S4 Executive: 3.0 TDI Quattro £33,705 OTR

Find me a new A4 Executive SE/S4 diesel for £17k, and you have yourself a rather blindingly HOT deal.

No he wasn't! Where can you get a top of the range Audi A4 3.2 FSI quattro S line for £25k? (not even sure if it's top of the range but it's up there).

Aye, sorry, but, I was referring to getting a hefty 10k discount on RRP on an Audi being highly unlikely, and thus, the Mondeo being even better value.

While not totally clear, it's in there :lol:
