A very good price, heat added

Yeah, I concur. A great price for a well-appointed small car. Hot.

...although...I could get a 5 year old BMW with 187,000 miles for the same price....8}

Which I'm sure you will be very comfortable in, on the hard shoulder

Just noticed, it's even got a spare wheel and air con. What a bargain!!!!!!

You can get way more suitcases in this than a Corsa. Have some heat.

This is why Vauxhall and the like are struggling, they are being out foxed by the Koreans - who are offering a superior product for less money with better support. Would never drive one but heat!

Yep, every time a good deal for a small car comes up, someone always says you could get a 5 year-old BMW for the same price. So I thought I should get in there first...

Just kidding, obvi

How many cases can you fit in the boot ?

Why no HDMI slots on the CD player? Should have at least 4.

Word has it, an entire family of 8 can have their luggage fit solely in the boot, and 8 passengers no problem on the seats.

Not big enough for me then, I'm getting a Corsa X)

if you buy one of these you'll be looking to fork out on a new clutch after 20k miles, and they wont cover you on their warranty

I have owned this model since July '13 (am a bit gutted, paid nearly a grand more through DtD... but anyway).
Is a great car. I've owned a fair few in my time, and this doesn't present any particular surprises, either good or bad.
It's just... nice. It drives ok, is able to accelerate (a bit) on the motorway, and feels better built than the last supermini I was in (a Pug 206, so not too hard i suppose).

This is easily a good value car for young drivers, with low insurance - a great way to get in to driving (and then buy something better a few years on) or just run around cheaply.
The 5 years warranty and RAC cover is also a great support structure that instils confidence.

I have had an I10 from new, it has almost 90k on the clock and the only problem has been a blown bulb.
Maybe I'm just lucky......

Seems a pretty outrageous claim! Do you have one? Do you tend to ride the clutch? I've own loads of manual cars, did over 100,000 in one and never needed a new clutch.

looks a good deal.

just a word or 2 of warning.

They have/ are having clutch problems with dealers refusing to repair/replace uder warranty even after just a couple of thousand miles.
(google is ur friend).

It may be the non facelift model.

It will have a plastic steering wheel

just to add I have nothing against Hyundai, my wife drives an i30 we have had a few minor problems with it and it has always been fixed under warranty (4 years old)

it's not outrageous, its just what i've read. i'm sure they dont all do it, but heard a lot of people have trouble, and even more worrying is that hyundai aren't covering it on warranty honestjohn.co.uk/car…09/

I got the exact same model when the scrappage scheme was on and VAT was at 15% for just over 7k so this is a great deal. I haven't had a problem with it in 3 and a half years. Great car.

Comes with a CIGAR LIGHTER for all you business men out there who would drive one of these. Tony Soprano would have had one along with Hannibal Smith.

Can you buy an automatic through them ?

+1 - friend's father had trasnmission issues / failure and warranty wriggle was endured...

I haven't priced this, but I wonder what the REAL cost of owning this versus, say a 3 or 4 year old {whatever you fancy that's a bit of a "better car"} with a 3 year after market warranty on it. How much to own that and sell after 3 years than this and sell after 3 years. Granted one is a brand new car with that new car smell etc and one isn't' brand new...

e.g. {quick autotrader search} Golf 1.6FSi Sport 2006 (06 reg) with 20,820 miles from a VW Dealer = £7000.

...and probably still worth £3,500-£4000 after three years and another 30,000 miles.

Well I've convinced myself anyway.

You forget to mention that Vauxhall is sh1t

barbiegirl: watch the top gear episode where they look at some of the "stains" that they lifted from second hand cars and you might reconsider.

In addition, what happens if your engine blows up in the Golf? That's £2k gone right there. In addition, an 06 reg is now 7 1/2 years old and clearly, with only 20k on the clock, it's probably not been broken in properly (short trips around town kill cars). If you want to discuss the merits of second hand, I'd stick to a diesel that's done mainly motorway mileage.

This is more or less worry-free motoring for 5 years (certainly, you won't get any big surprises)

Definitely better than the Corsa IMHO too

And that the Vauxhall I've just ordered is built in............ South Korea

A well-equipped car that is cheap to run for a very low price. We have had one a second car for 18 months and it does the job well. If you are looking for a small car, this is pretty hard to beat for price and spec.

The manufacturer is advertising the same deal at £7,995, so with a bit of haggling may be available at this price from your local dealer. It's worth looking at the service package - offers quite a saving over the term.

BTW, this is built in India.

I like it. Wonder if this the facelift model, read somewhere recently that the i10 and i30 were being updated very soon.

A Golf! Heard it all now. Still, some people can dream. I'd rather contract Herpes than have a Golf. In fact, I'd even rather own the Corsa from the other deal, and thats sh*te.

After market warranties are rubbish, never seen a good one. At 8 years, if the Golf is still working (unlikely being a modern VW), it will probably have been owned by a chav at some point, have 20" rims, windows blacked out to 0 visibility, an exhaust tailpipe so wide you could smuggle a family of Armenians in through Dover and the seat set so low to the ground it will look like its being driven by a feckin hobbit.

An aftermarket three year warranty will not cover against wear and tear and a 7 1/2 year old car will have quite a lot of that, especially as Golfs aren't particularly reliable.

I also really can't see it being worth near £4k in a private sale in three years time.

For a fair comparison you would need to keep it for 5 years, the same as the Hyundai warranty and factor in running costs.
Just VED is an extra £1000
Higher insurance and lower fuel economy too.

I can see where you are coming from as a Golf is a much nicer car to be in but justifying it from a financial point of view is nonsense.
If you want cheap motoring buy an old diesel Octavia.
