as good as that sounds most modern cars will run with few issues for 10+ years now. So taking a lease is ridiculous plus you have to stick to agreed millages. buy a car on finance pay it off and enjoy at lease 5 years of no monthly payments. Even with road tax insurance and £1000 on repairs and tyres etc my financed car paid off is still a better option than leasing every 3 years

true, but I wouldn't say leasing is ridiculous though. I for one get bored with the same car and like to change every couple of years. Can be a good option especially if your circumstances change i.e a growing family etc :)

I had a Qashqai, within 3 yrs the aircon had gone, it failed its first MOT on so many issues would of cost near £3k to put right, would never have another

Kenneth leasing isn't a silly option though I'd rather lease a premium brand. thing is if you finance it you have to pay the whole amount plus big interest fees

Sorry was late and used strong wording to get a point across.

I can appreciate some people lease cars for different reasons but personally with interest rates so low eg HSBC offer 4.3% on loans up to 15k you could pay your car off in three years if you wanted and anytime you don't pay for repairs its money in your pocket.

As an example I personally have a 7 year old ford and my wife a 10year old micra. She just spent £400,for a new clutch and a few other buts needed doing. But that's equivelant to 2 months lease payments and if nothing else goes wrong this year she's still driving a sound wee car that drives perfectly fine is in A1 condition and cost next to nothing to run.

Even when it dies a slow and painful death she should be looking at least £500 cash from The local scrap yard.

With a lease you never own anything so its a continual circle of payments year after year.

So unless you need a new car every three years or you just have money to do this I would suggest having a wee think long term as to what is actually best

£500 to scrap micra nah , leasing suit's be better means I can have a new motor whenever I fancy
#9
Not whenever you fancy, at the end of the lease...

i'm pro-leasing. (do it through my business so i get VAT back) changing your acr every 2-3 years works for me. Also a 10k limit per year is ample. the biggest thing is they simply (in my experience) dont go wrong in their first 3 years. I've owned cars in the past and the constant need for mot/servicing/tyre change/ did my head in. that was BEFORE the major stuff goes wrong like new turbos, new injectors etc. With tleasing i just pay my monthly lease, insurance and fuel. happy days. easy life. (and brand new car on the drive)

Thanks for feedback ppl!

I've owned a less than spectacular list of cars in the last 5 years: x reg Yaris, w reg almera and currently a y reg corrola.

I do 200 miles a week (150 motorway), and was looking at something that will be better on fuel, and looked at a new car, but with depreciation, apr etc I had a look at leasing. I like the idea of not having to bear the huge levels of depreciation after 3-6 years, getting a brand new car and jumping ship before anything goes wrong with it.

I like the corrola, but it's getting on with this and that soon to be going, economy ain't the greatest and the extras would start and stop at the basics of a steering wheel, pedals and handbrake!

So instead of getting another used car, I thought lease a few times, save up and buy the car out at the end or a 3 year old car for around £9000-10000

Can you not just get a bank loan and buy a 3 year old car outright?

Or get a bank loan and buy a new car outright?

Surely a lease just ties you into milage limits and other fees?

Mileage doesn't bother some people, I personally work out the country for 6 months a year so 10000 miles is plenty

Unfortunately unless it's at 0% apr I can't: for religious reasons I can't take a loan where I would be required to do interest repayments, otherwise that would be ideal

A cheaper alternative is the Dacia Duster. Virtually identical mechanics (Renault).
Renault own the majority of Nissan, and also Dacia.

You should seriouly consider converting to Judasim or something haha

Nope, definitely the quackquack, so many of these with blue badges in the Wirral/Ellesmere Port area.
