This deal seems to always be on but they adjust the payments. However I believe this is the cheapest it's been.

Diesel Skoda Octavia vRS with Nav and metallic paint, 10k miles a year for £159 a month, £2490 deposit. Excess mileage is 8.4p a mile which isn't bad.

Yes - this is more expensive than a 6yr old BMW, thanks for letting us know.

Yes - you don't own the car, again thanks for informing us of that.

Yes - it's only 10,000 miles a year if you do more then find another deal.

2 Year Deal

Why I would think about things before this deal:
Lots of these in our fleets and the VRS diesel have been popular in all their variants. These ones are having issues there is a flat spot and hesitation which occurs at about 1500 -1800 RPMs, esp. when you come off gas and then get back on it, say slowing down for someone who steps off the pavement. Lights that are just going green as you roll along etc.

Skoda have failed to acknowledge this issue for ages, no fault codes are logged. Its just come to a head of late that its actually the C02 management software (yeah that lying bag of....!) which actually stops the car from boosting for a second (always on a down change), almost like a faulty waste gate for the turbo.

Its annoying, it makes the driving not very smooth, who would knowingly take on a car the hesitates then surges.

Its now been noted by many, many drivers, look on the Skoda forums (briskoda etc) and you see many disappointed customer.

Skoda are currently offering no solution b/c there isn't one according to them. I notice new engines are scheduled for 2017/18!

Sorry OP cold from me. Simpsons are a decent dealer (my local) but Lookers Stockport can beat this deal if you want one of these. £1619.91 upfront with £179.99 a month, total = £5,759.68. 10k allowance.

Thanks, that is a good deal. This one comes with Nav and metallic paint (which the Lookers one doesn't seem to) so if you're not interested in those the Lookers deal is better.

Amundsen Nav is standard spec now, so would need confirming with Lookers, but I suspect it will include it. Not sure about Metallic paint.

I have the leon 184 and can confirm there is a flat spot as you describe. Mine has a tuning box which I believe made it more noticeable for me. Despite this I would say it is a niggle on the Seat rather than a deal breaker, as the decent performance combined with nigh on 60mpg makes up for it in my view.

Do you actually get 60mpg when calculated manually? Heard that those tuning boxes really skew the indicated figures.

I agree with both of your replies. The way you look at a car is very different when you lease it compared to owning it outright.

might want to check the used prices on these as well (if you really want a VRS) as their pretty good

Because the dpf filter etc won't be included in the warranty. Manufacturer will state the car is not being used in accordance with the guidance. However you may get away with it for 2 years.

you have proof? from googling you would do well to get Skoa to replace the DPF under warranty... some manufacturers consider it to just be a filter.

I've got a Golf GTD and haven't had an issue with a flat spot. Is it just the ones made since the VW emissions scandal that do this?

I have had no issues with the DPF in over 2 years. I do mixed journeys, usually 10-20mins in duration. 9k a year. In fact I haven't had a single issue or cause for a warranty claim.

Whilst this is a good price for the VRS you would have to really need the extra space over a Golf as that works out the same (if not less) per month and has a lot more standard kit.

in need of a new car soon. been seeing some good lease deals as of late. is anyone able to answer me on the following - is the deposit refunded at end of lease? with regards to services, does it have to go back to main dealer or can you use an independant garage? how fussy are they with condition of returned vehicles? (ie kerbed alloys)

I checked it before the tuning box and it would happily return 57 on my commute without driving like a granny (which is mainly motorway and B roads). I haven't noticed consumption getting worse since the box but yes the computer sometimes reports nearly 70 so know its lying! Must admit though that the tuning box really transforms the car. You really notice when you remove it for the service.

That's good then. I'm tempted by a tdi 184 but put off by the flat spot issue reports and some people are only getting low to mid 40's. My 2.0 TSI petrol can get close to that on a run, so I'd be hoping for high 50's in the diesel.

No, there's no way you will average 60mpg in mixed driving, whether a tuning box is fitted or not. You will get 60mpg if you cruise at 60mph on the motorway for some time, but 45mpg is what you're looking at for 'mixed' driving

Useful info. Do you see the warning coil light come on at all ? Sounds like a duration of 10-20mins (in free folowing traffic?) could be suffcient. I do allot of short journeys of circa 5-10 minutes so a bit more worried (with some longer ones obvioulsy).
