Scrappage scheme explained, well to the best info i could get.

This will be my last post on the scrappage scheme as i'm not going to
bore you all with anymore details about it after this...
unless i spot a good bargain on a car dealership forecourt.

As i have noticed many people still dont understand how the scheme can work for them,
so i hope the information below helps anyone still unsure about the scheme.


YOUR CAR requirements to qualify for the scrappage scheme below (numbered 1 - 6).

The vehicle you are trading in must:

1.) be a car or small van weighing up to 3,500 kilograms (kg)

2.) be first registered in the United Kingdom (UK) on or before 31 August 1999

3.)be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in your name

4.)have been registered to you continuously for 12 calendar months before the order date of the new vehicle

5.)have a UK address on the registration certificate (V5C)

6.)have a current MOT test certificate before date of order for the new vehicle

The car you must purchase under the scrappage scheme KEY FACTS below (numbered 1 - 3).

The new vehicle you want to buy must be:

1.) a car or small van weighing up to 3,500 kg

2.)first registered in the UK on or after mid May 2009

3.)declared new at first registration in the UK with no former keepers

The information above on the scrappage scheme was sourced from the government website direct,
so should be 100% correct at time of this posting, i have also put a direct link to the
government website below:

addition information on the SCRAPPAGE SCHEME below:

The vehicle discount or scrappage scheme is a voluntary scheme for motor dealers.
If a dealer joins theyll give you £2,000 off a new vehicle if you let them scrap your old one.
The scheme will run from mid May 2009 to March 2010, depending on whether its fixed budget runs
out sooner.

The fixed budget is £300,000,000.00 (so once its gone, no more scrappage scheme).

In answer to many questions, you cannot buy a pre-reg or nearly new car under the scrappage scheme,
you must be the first registered owner (so new cars only).

NOTE: please also check the dealer websites as well for details on scrappage as may vary, but the above
are the KEY FACTS on the scrappage scheme from the GOVERNMENT direct.

Now i'm going to put a list of "what i think are the best buy" under the scrappage scheme, and the
prices i list have the £2,000 off price already added and will not include metallic paint.
i will also put a direct link up to each car i put on my list of best buys...
(£6,000 cars and under only, remember these are the best buy, but maybe not the best cars).

Fiat Panda ECO - £4,995

Hyundai i10 Classic - £4,995

Hyundai i20 Classic - £5,995

Kia Picanto - £4495 (up from the £4,195 it originally was)

Kia Rio - £5,195

Skoda Fabia - £5,995

Nissan Micra - £5,995

Suzuki Alto (NEW SHAPE) - £4,795 (for this link click

Ford KA (NEW SHAPE) - £5,995

Chevrolet Matiz - £4,295

Chevrolet Aveo - £5,765

Volkswagen Fox - £4,845

Also ARNOLD CLARK is selling many cars for under £6,000 under the scrappage scheme
that are not on the main manufacturer websites, such as the listed below:

Renault Clio Extreme - £5,995

Vauxhall Corsa Life - £5,995

Peugeot 107 (from) £5,488

...and many more car to be found @

But if i had to spend £6,000 i think i would pay the little extra (only £300) and
get something funky and retro like the FIAT 500! Think this car is great looking
inside and out!

For £6,300!

...And remember many video reviews from car magazines and owners reviews of the above cars
can be found on the following websites:

SORRY about the long post, you have no more posts from me on the matter now!
Hope this helps some people out their!
