Cheers!

Yes it's off any value.

You must have owned a 10 year old car for a minimum of 12 months.

The Kia Picanto is from £4195, incredible.

This should boost our flagging car industry :whistling:

Cheers, thought I'd heard there was a minimum spend but that answers why I couldn't find any details about it!

If you see a new car for £2000 then please let us all know, will send the thermometer through the roof.

No, you have to own the car for 12 months first.

I just sold my old banger and got a focus (used) - even with the scrappage scheme I still cant afford a brand new car

I am not sure this scheme will make many go and buy a brand new car that weren't going to anyway.

As you say a brand new car is out of most peoples reach anyway.

Waste of money imo, a 12-18 month old is far better value.

*participating dealers only.

Or that's how I read it.

Not really an expert in this but I think a manufacturer would be dealing themsleves a death sentence not to be included in it.

I think they're all taking part though aren't they? I think they have to stump up half the cash but still I can't see anyone wanting to miss out.

A quick quote :

The government will provide £1000 in discounts, and manufacturers that agree to the scheme will provide another £1000.


But i'm pretty sure they don't have to include every model. Remember the pre-emptive citroen deal? They were only offering the bigger cars at a discount (picasso size and above). The 'city cars' weren't included. Not sure about now though tbh.

Often unused/pre-registered new cars have a heftier saving than £2k anyway and therefore represent a better buy for most.
#16
I believe most small cars are included, flicking through my link they seem to be, including Citroen.

Means that with discount you can get that car... new for just over 2 grand!!

not bad ?

Lol something else the goverment have made a mess of.

It only started today as well

I did this through Citroen (their own scheme before the govt started it). Traded an R reg Fiat Brava against a new Picaasso 1.6hdi. Was well pleased to get £2000 for a car that is worth £200.

But the cars are massively overpriced so you not get such a good deal

£800 more than a one year old car of same spec so tbh I wouldn't say that was overpriced. Depends on what sort of car and manufacturer.

I think this may be because used cars are exempt/get a lower rate of VAT than new cars?
