Better getting from the likes of drive the deal for a UK car. Imports will attract massively higher insurance premiums.
How would they know though? Genuine question, I'm not trolling or owt. If you are the first registered owner the V5 will say nothing about whether it was imported?
My definition of an imported car would be something which was registered somewhere else first then brought into the country.


No problem, it will be on whatever database they get the car details from when they enter the reg. The DVLA will hold it as an import.

Its easy to see - find a car such as a nissan GTR - get the reg off one off autotrader, do a quote then find a japanese importers and get a quote off one of their reg's

Think you will be in for a shock!

Very nice cars – got a previous version Octavia but the latest really take a step on with interior quality. Need to get a replacement in the next 12 months or so and have my eye on a Scout (no innuendos please) but wifey’s probably not going to let me :(

Agree the new Superb is a thing of beauty (though the old ones were pig ugly). Really keen to upgrade to one of these, but just wish they were a little wider for three kids (Skoda seem to have issues with car width – they stretch them out lengthways for legroom, but the car widths are still narrower than most cars).

Fifth most reliable car brand;http://www.reliabilityindex.com/manufacturer
People should stop using this ridiculous link as a proof any cheap and well known unreliable brand is much more reliable than good car brands that actually innovate in the car industry and activate in some of the most demanding markets (Germany for example).
According to that link, SsangYong (I bet some never heard of it) is more reliable than Mercedes (although SsangYong is an obscure company that used Mercedes engines at some point and proudly displayed that on their cars).
According to the same link, the two most unreliable cars in the world are Porche and Bentley. However, Vauxhall, Chevrolet are like you said at the top (with Chevy the 5th most reliable) although Chevy is always been well known for problems and poor performance (as you would expect from American cars).
Audi is also at the bottom, although Volkswagen is 10 position higher up even though they share 90% of the components and 100% of the engines...
I dare to say Chevrolet is not a more reliable car than an Audi, Porche or Bentley. Sorry if I offend anyone by that, or if I contradict a list posted on the internet.

The good thing about that reliability data is it has absolutely no bias. It's simply an insurance company insuring cars for warranty and detailing the frequency and cost of repair for the various models which gives end users and understanding why the Warranty for a Audi is hugely more expensive than a Honda. It's not about favourite cars or performance but simply hard facts about reliability. You question why Volkswagen is more reliable than Audi yet it is clearly obvious that Audi are the premium range of cars with larger and more sophisticated engines and more luxury features, nothing complicated to work out there. You state Chevrolet are american but again you have no understanding that the engines are german designed and the cars are mainly manufactured in Korea which has a brilliant record for assembling cars.

So many people make assumptions that all french cars have electrical problems or all german cars are reliable etc based on past evidence. You still get people joking about Skoda cars. Those whose minds work a bit more logically simply look at the evidence that is available.

A BMW for example may have great performance and high quality materials in its cabin but it still has a much higher failure rate than the average and the cost of repairs can be double other brands, 2x the frequency and 2x the cost of repairs is 4x the overall cost of competitor's cars. That can be a huge amount of money over the lifetime of ownership. Not forgetting the very high initial cost of ownership too and performance cars burn more fuel, tyre wear etc. The end result can be a lot of money spent. That could be the difference between better or more frequent holidays, renting or buying a better home etc.

There are no surprises in that reliability data, the Japanese come top and complicated luxury cars are at the bottom.

In the page seems these cars are used. Am I missing smth or should the message be changed?
You would be the 2nd owner on the logbook so technically used and some of the warranty period already gone.
£500 more for a brand spanker from a main dealer with the option to buy their 3 year service pack and I would think better finance options.
Yes, shorter warranty could cost you a lot more down the line than the saving you get upfront.
Of course resale value might also be impacted by the fact it has 2 previous owners instead of just one.
They do actually have new cars at this price, search the page for "Mileage:Delivery"

​Hmmmm. Looks like we have an expert here......
Porsches aren't bulletproof I'm afraid my friend, far from it. VW/Audi/Bentley are all the same group and share many components across the models - those same components are prone to failure regardless of whether installed in a £20k, £40k or £160k model!
SsangYong used old generation Mercedes engines from an era before the accountants replaced the engineers in running Mercedes . Once upon a time you would swear by a Peugeot diesel engine, now you just swear at them, its the same thing with BMW these days with the 2.0 diesel engine, they have turned what was once unbreakable into an absolute dog.
So you're the expert you were referring to in your opening statement?

Who said Porches are bulletproof ?? Your post makes no sense. I only pointed out Porche is listed second-last after Bentley! You are building a straw man argument here, nobody said Porche is bulletproof!

So Peugeots are no good according to you? Cause according to the link, Peugeot ranks 14 out of 39 (39 being Bentley, 38 being Porche), and listed as more reliable than VW, Volvo, Saab, Mini, Renault, Jaguar, Audi, Jeep, Rover etc. It is also more reliable than SsanYong and Mercedes (by far, as they are at 31 and 32).

You are again showing your expertise when trying to explain how SsangYong is listed more reliable than Mercedes... it is just one position between them by the way. I doubt the engine is the only thing that matters in a car, and yes, I doubt anyone would choose a SsangYong over a Mercedes based on this link.

But you seem to agree with it so you probably would?

BlueMagnette
I know this is an old thread but felt the need to post. Apart from a couple of posters, I've never read so much tripe in all my life! I bought one of the Motorpoint Magnette TSEs in October 2013. Great car and 100% reliable! Handsome (imo) with unbelievable kit for the price! It's no wonder the 6 has not sold in the UK given the ill informed ignorance that has been spouted all over the net by people who have never even seen one in the flesh! I don't think 30mpg in stop start urban driving is bad either (That's what I'm getting) and on a run you'll see it up in the 40s and 50s. I think the guy going on about a 3.0 Land Rover having a similar mpg can only have been talking about the diesel version not petrol! The full leather interior and black and silver trim is very nice too! I love my Magnette and will gladly get another, unfortunately with the recent facelift to the 6, the Magnette was dropped. Mind you, I own one of the rarest modern saloons on the road so kind of glad! less than 700 in total!

Not sure why this was expired, SEs are now £9299. One TSE left at £10999.

They're winning the British Touring Car Championship in this car. However I think the team build the whole car up from scratch, probably isnt much of the standard car in it.

haven't won it just yet but 888 build their cars from scratch so there will be little to compare other than the shell (which has survived Plato rolling it)

Dont they fit roll cages though? :D

Touring cars share little of the road going car anymore. Dashboard is the same, most body panels (Rob Austin in A4's strips road going cars to use as parts), engine is TOCA specified so has to be 2 litre turbo charged to certain output, plus the weight and ride height are heavily scrutinised.

Still the best racing series in the UK bar none, F1 is too predictable.

Fuel consumption (combined) 38.2 mpg -5 (to get close to reality) = 33.2mpg average

pretty poor for a diesel, that said I think overall a reasonable deal on price


Actually, my Antara (which is the same car) easily gets 37mpg regularly. Pretty darn good for a 4x4 SUV with such a high weight. Rules as always with these. Drive economically and green, smooth acceleration maximum economy speeds. Forget automatic. Read the manual so that you don't have air conditioning running all the time (modern demisting programs turn on the air conditioners). Use decent diesel, i.e. BP, etc. Do not use supermarket fuels like Sainsburys and Tescos.

Enjoy. Remember that diesel engines can have a long run in period. And never, never buy any diesel SUV if you intend to only use it for town run abouts. Diesels need to be over 30 mph for at least 15 mins periodically for particulate filter regeneration. if not they will burn through more fuel constantly trying to enter the regeneration mode. Plus short journeys don't allow engine to heat up.

Next winter and you'll be sorted.

Listen not to the naysayers. This is a great family vehicle and driven well offers good economy for its class and type. If you want a 4x4 with the best economy then it's the Jeep Patriot at 45mpg

This says FWD so not sure if that refers to front wheel drive or full wheel drive. If it's front wheel drive then you're incurring a weight and fuel economy penalty pointlessly.

Most public sector workers qualify for the Vauxhall/ Saab partners scheme (check online) which saved me the same amount off my last car without any haggling or hassle.


Thanks for this info mate, never knew about it.

I thought it would be the usual BS discounts i.e. 5% of the MRRP and then it would stilll be loads more expensive than Deal Drivers / Drive the Deal etc... but it actually does make the cars a lot cheaper than the online providers.

Basically for those who don't know, the scheme is for anyone who knows someone who works for Vauxhall OR if you are or know someone who works for / is a member of anyone below

A Selection of Companies within the Associate Partners Scheme are:

Do you have a link to this data?


Sorry, I haven't as it's confidential data produced for and shared internally in the industry. However, there are numerous surveys in the public domain which broadly support the very comprehensive research like this which the manufacturers do for themselves. The AutoExpress annual survey is easily accessible and is a reasonable start point, though as the respondents are 'self selecting' from people with some enthusiasm for cars it is arguably somewhat biased; hasn't stopped Skoda scoring vey well though! No doubt Which? do something too though I haven't looked at it.

I would caution against selecting on reliability data alone though. Yes, you'll want to try and avoid an unreliable dog but there's so much more to satisfaction with a car. Bear in mind too that survey results are the average of many samples - your particular Toyota could be a poor one or your Fiat/Alfa/Renault/Citroen/Peugeot an unusually good one. You are simply reducing your risk, not eliminating it. Also, if you plan to keep your car for a long period there are wide variations in durability which may not align with initial quality. There are plenty of Rover owners across Europe who are finding their cars are lasting very well whereas the 'quality' makes can become uneconomical propositions to keep on the road.

Thanks for the info, very useful!

It's also very unlikely that the one for £2990 will get the full asking price.


Yeah I'm sure he would bite your arm if you offered him £2000, and of course I'm sure the sellers of the higher priced ones would too. How do all these car dealers manage to stay in business pricing their cars so high? Most have priced their cars at over twice as much as the "experts" on this forum have said they are worth. Like I know they have to make their margins but how do they keep in business? ;)

its rubbish try to sell it on after 3 years you would be lucky to get £2000 bad buy in the trade avoid


You are going to have to have totally trashed it to get only £2k. The cheapest 3 year old 1.6 Lacetti SX on Autotrader at the moment is £2990. The most expensive is a boggling £5700. Most though are over £4k.


You can't use autotrader as a guide for prices. Use your common sense - as if the one for £5700 will sell! It's also very unlikely that the one for £2990 will get the full asking price.

Not my taste in a car, but for under 8grand it is a brand new car with a decent kit list, If you have a 10 year old junker and get 500quid for it then you would be doing quite well with this deal.

Think of it this way a very small loan and you could have the worry free motoring for at least 3 years, usually lower insurance, no MOTs to keep worrying about and no maintaining it all the time as it should work without many if any problems.
