This annoyes me as not everyone has a 10 year old car that they have owned for over a year. Also i have heard the car has to have an MOT which seems silly if it is going to be scrapped anyway.
Would be better if they just told you the correct price !

My car is 10 years old in January and I have been told that even in January it won't be eligable for the scrappage scheme as it has to be a T reg??!! It all seems a con. I've gone for a second havd one now and part ex'd it for £800

there are some really nice cars going to the scrap-yard because of this scheme.I know the reasoning behind it, but just seems a waste.

How do they get away with it? It is misleading.

Agree, some real gems going to the scrap yard.
I would rather a older car than new as it is far easier to maintain yourself rather than paying £150 - £200 to do some basic servicing that you could do for £40.

The biggest con is the fact the manufacturers keep putting the prices up.

I started looking at the end of June. The model Hyundai I was looking at came out at £6995. I went to order on the 2 July and was told the price had gone up by £400. I decided to leave it. Then on 8th August, I decided to swallow the increase and went in to order once again. Shock horror - this time I find that on that day, they'd hiked again by a further £300. A second increase in FIVE weeks.

That was the final straw. The missis can keep her perfectly fine Fiesta and Hyundai can take a run and jump.

This scheme is being abused by manufacturers. The government should scrap the scrappage scheme.

I think the government should have said every part ex for a new car should be £2500 or above...then people with new and old cars all benefit from it (and the cars worth more dont lost out) I have a 53 numberplate and bet its only worth 1k max part ex....really annoys me that crap older cars are on effect worth more than me....screwing me and a lot of other people over in favour of those who (sometimes) didnt bother to save up for a nice car...and just bought any collection of junk they could get with £50

rant over :)

The reasons for the price increases are nothing to do with the scrappage scheme more to do with the current economic climate and the increase in manufacturing costs it has brought.

Ford put their prices up twice in 2 months - **** happens
