    Great motorway cruiser but only the mileage available to do the school run.
    Utterly pointless on 5k miles, unless it is a weekend only car
    I have probably averaged 3500 miles a year for the last 10 years. Both myself and my missus live a few miles away from where we work so for some people 5000 miles is plenty. Just because in your situation you drive a lot further it doesn't mean everybody does. I prefer a 10 minute commute rather than waste my life driving to and from work.
    Other mileages are available to suit your needs,10,000 miles is only £245.00 a month!!

    People get too hung up on miles allowed.

    As above it will not be much to increase the allowance, and the excess mileage charge is not usually much either, 8p a mile or so.

    Also, we don’t all do huge miles, had my car a year now and on,y done 8k miles but it’s just a weekend car so all those miles are for fun and not just sitting in commuting traffic.

    I had one of these as a courtesy car for 2 weeks a month ago. But it was a 3l quattro . While my 2010 A6 was in. Nice car will get one when they go down in price in a few years.
    5k miles?? Then how much over that per mile? Freezing cold.
    Interior is lacking way behind on these

    Yeah, only 20 odd % more.

    This classes as a bait 'n switch; the only way anyone could expect to do this mileage is if they were a little old lady who only used it to go to church.

    So you don’t do many miles but you have only done 8000 Just on weekends?
    The only real issue with this deal is the money you're putting down. That's the bad part - the dead money.

    Yes, I know that technically the whole thing is dead money as you never own the car but most people don't seem to understand that you never own it with Hire Purchase either, not until the final payment and doc fee is coughed up.

    My advice with leasing would be; look for the deals that have the least/no deposit. Thats where you lose most money.

    Generally, if you have a specific car in mind, you'll end up paying through the nose, unless of course, that car is one of the general deals that you see all the time.

    I lease both our cars but I just take what I can get thats in my budget. I'd never put myself over a barrel for a car.

    Or maybe use it as a second/third car. You know some people have more than one car, a crap one for work and a decent one for weekends.

    Why pay the horrific depreciation on someone else's car? This type of vehicle finance allows people who can't really afford an expensive car to laden themselves with a huge financial commitment and the only winners are the dealerships.

    You are misunderstanding how the costs are calculated with that statement.

    Essentially this is a £272 per month deal/car, the larger deposit bringing the monthly rentals down to £203.

    With no deposit you would end up with a £203 p/m car, rather than a £272 p/m car, i.e. generally a cheaper/less desirable model.

    Look at this as a no deposit, £272 per month deal, rather than a big deposit £203 p/m deal - 6 of one, half a dozen of the other, as we say up North.

    A few miles? Then walk you lazy oik!!

    Seriously, a life of sub 10 mile trips would kill this car; or at least seriously wear out the turbo and clog up the engine; it would probably never ever reach proper operating temperature.
    For the same money you could probably get a private hire contract to take you to/from work every day, no hassle, they might even open/close the door for you.

    Seriously, this works out at 13.6 miles per day.

    Pretty much yes, I work from home so don’t use it through the week.

    We do a few trips to London etc throughout the year though and most weekends involve a 1-200 mile trip out somewhere.

    I think there's 2 things here why people comment fairly negatively when it's a 5k, or sometimes 8k, miles deal.

    1) There seems to be a consensus that in UK, the average annual mileage for most people is much higher than 5k. I can't back this up (did a quick search on RAC Foundation). It will vary a lot across demographics, geography and local/regional public transport network. Most people tend to quote 10k-12k miles as average but that number has been about for years. So I'm not sure what the average is but I suppose 10k miles appeals o a wider base than 5k does. 10k also covers low mileage users buy they're paying more for something they are less likely to use. Each to their own and dels won't always appeal to everybody.
    2) Particularly when it comes to higher cost leases, diesels, luxury cars, big engines or just generally those you would associate with doing more miles in; many HUKDers see it as false economy to hire such cars when you're only doing say 5k miles. Although you pay marginally less tahn somebody leasing for 10k/pa, a large chunk is still going on depreciation for an asset you're not fully sweating. Apart from the fact a house (generally) doesn't depreciate, the analogy would be renting 4 or 5 bed house when in reality you only need 1-2 bedrooms, including any storage or occasional visitors. yes it's your choice to make and you may like the kerb appeal etc but you'll still get people commenting on it.

    Turns out the average in 2016 was 7,800 miles, dropped from 9,200 in 2002. If you look at diesel cars specifically then it's about 10,200

    You're looking at it wrong. You need to view a lease as all the payments plus deposit plus fees added up over the term of the lease. If you look for low deposit you'll get higher payments. High deposit low payments. You pay the same over the lease.

    With HP people do understand you don't own the car, but they concentrate on the fact after the 2/3/4 years of payments you can take it back and you have a guaranteed value. Sometimes you end up with a little extra cash towards the next HP. They prefer this because it's a little daunting to reach the end of your lease and have to pay another deposit for the next lease.

    If they don't screw you at the beginning they screw you throughout....and guess what? If you manage to dodge that, they'll screw you at the end haha.

    I struggle to see how the average mileage is so low - given how clogged up the Motorways are during rush hour.

    more cars on the same amount of road doesn't mean more miles driven per car. Just means more road users.
    So everyone of those people you're parked up beside on the Motorway may only be doing 5 miles Extreme example of course.

    I think fully autonomous cars, when a majority, will change car 'ownership' and road usage a lot.Things such as hunting around for parking will decrease. Bus lanes that have infrequent services will probably come back into service for normal traffic (on basis that autonomous vehicle will give way to a bus it 'knows' is approaching from a little further behind). Leasing/ownership might only work for truly high mileage users. Everyone else will justpay for actual usage of transport at their beck and call.

    Yeah every 1.8TFSI A6 I see I think "wow they must be a high roller".

    It's not like 30 odd grand cars aren't commonplace or that they are seen as some way of having "made it" financially. It's a nice (if a little bit dated) car that is probably cheaper to lease than to own from new.

    But some leases only let you go 10% over the agreed mileage allowance. If you do more than 10% of the agreed mileage allowance the terms allow the lease company to raise an invoice for the difference between what you've paid for (5,000 miles x 2 years) and whatever brings you within 10% of that limit.

    So lets work this through:-

    10% of 10,000 miles is 1,000 miles (5,000 miles x 2 years). If you do 11,000 miles in 24 months you're OK, you pay 1,000 miles x 8p per mile = £80

    If you actually do 20,000 miles (10,000 miles x 2 years) they may charge you the monthly difference between 5,000 miles and 10,000 miles, here circa £40 a month x 24 months = £960. So £160 more than if you had been charged for 10,000 miles at 8p a mile plus, no doubt, some admin fees for the aggravation.
    Why do I get the impression that most people who will go for this deal will barely be able to afford the monthly repayments!
