Works out at about £3-3.3k per year cost, plus any repairs, tax and if paying outright the lost interest on £30k which compounded over 6 years on a low interest ISA or similar at around 2-2.25% is circa £4.3k over the 6 years.So, the real cost per year is going to be £4200-4500, which equates to ~£350-375 per month. Best lease deal I can find is around £398 per month averaged, including the upfront costs, and with 10K miles. Obviously there's not that much in it, and if you opt to go for a 24 months lease, you would have the benefit of getting the newer version a lot sooner.It's down to personal choice, if you keep it more than 6 years, then it starts to make more sense, but things start to get expensive when they go wrong with these cars, and 6-7 years is pushing it imo.


I wholly agree. If you only plan to run this 2 or 3 years then i'd consider leasing one. If you want to run it longer, then buying outright is probably better.

They moan when someone suggests buying the car in the leasing threads yet come in here to say "it would be better to lease"NO - leasing isn't the perfect solution that you think it is Mr Rose-Tinted Glasses wearer. If:1. You have an ego that requires you to show off to the Jones' next door that you have a shiny new ornament on your driveway every 2 years 2. You like forking out continuously month-on-month and year-on-year for something you'll never actually own3. You don't actually drive anywhere...Then leasing is perfect for youOtherwise:1. If you intend to keep a car for a long time (e.g best value for money) -or-2. Do above average mileage that would stack up excess mileage charges at the end of a lease -or-3. Prefer to save money in the long run and have more financial safety4. Prefer not to have a "penalty lease fee" for any damages caused by other careless clots5. Want to be more environmentally friendly (Building a new car is far worse for the environment than running one for years)...Then buying is your best answer.Simples


Oh get a grip.

If you plan on changing your new car every two or three years, then leasing may be an effective way to drive a new car. Likewise, if you want to budget a set amount monthly for a car, to include depreciation, road tax, etc then leasing may be a good idea.

There was someone on the previous page getting sniffy because this car might depreciate to £20K after two years. Well, if that person believes that buying new and changing at two years is right for them, then leasing may be an option

Leasing deals are usually 10-12k per annum, which is what most people do. Signing up to a 5K a year deal if you do 12K would be plain daft, likewise not driving a car you otherwise planned to stay within leasing miles would be equally as daft.

I havent leased, and if i was in a position to want to buy a car like this, i'd run it 5 years minimum. Likewise if someone wants to lease one and can afford the payments then there may be sense in that.

There is no right or wrong answer but jumping on the lease deals and giving them a kicking for all the wrong reasons is banal.

Looks like this would be still worth £10-12k after 6 years, and 80-100k miles, so pretty much impossible to beat if you are leasing a vehicle. Works out at about £3-3.3k per year cost, plus any repairs, tax and if paying outright the lost interest on £30k which compounded over 6 years on a low interest ISA or similar at around 2-2.25% is circa £4.3k over the 6 years.

That is what franchised dealers charge for replacing the EGR. It can't be blanked off because many people do not use modern-day diesels the most efficient way and that is why these EGR faults keep occurring.

DPF - Again only likely to go wrong by doing short distances and running on supermarket fuel..can be deleted or cleaned out for much less than the £300-400 you are quoting. Even less of an issue on new cars due to AdBlue tanks on them which dissolve the ash. We have sprinters and vitos at work running adblue and have done 200k plus with no issues


Whilst I advocate using premium quality fuels only on all cars, the Ceremex process costs £300 minimum if you want a good job to be done. You also assume AdBlue are reliable. They aren't and AdBlue heaters have been starting to fail too. You may have no issues, but you cannot extrapolate that to meaning all diesel cars/vans do not.

5-7 years? Who recommends that? VAG recommend 120,000 miles or four years (whichever is sooner). If you buying a car that just over three years old and has not had its timing belt changed, I would change it.

So you will only replace the turbo? Unless your car has stop-start, many people don't bother to let the turbos cool and that more often than not creates the failure in the first place, because the oil feed and oil return pipes become blocked with carbon when the engine is frequently shut down when the turbo is too hot. This then starves the turbo bearing of its lubrication as well as its cooling. Hence the pricing.

He is now on 190k on the original turbo, EGR and waterpump and glow plugs. This one was just before DPFs came in (2004) but the key with its longevity is using the correct oil and using decent diesel...ie Shell which has cleaning additives.


Cool story dude! The 1.9 TDI non-DPF was VAG's most reliable and economical diesel engine. But again, if it hasn't had a timing belt, tensioner, waterpump and alternator belt change, it needs one, irrespective of what you think.

At 35mpg over 190k = 24643 litres of PetrolAt 55mpg over 190k = 15683 litres of DieselEven at a quid a litre thats nearly a £9k saving for having the diesel. Could have got quite a few £600 turbos for that amount of saving!


I have never said diesels don't have a purpose, but, unless you regularly do 20,000 miles a year or need to tow something or need carry heavy loads or carry seven people, don't buy a diesel. You'd be better off with getting a small turbo petrol or a hybrid, like a PSA 1.2 130 Puretech that combine power, torque, fuel economy (50mpg) and, so far, very good reliability.

A three year old car will need a new timing belt, tensioner, waterpump and alternator belt in a year or so, costing £500. If the turbo fails, that will be about £1500 + new turbo bearing oil feed and oil return pipes. So yeh...a bargain!

This one was just before DPFs came in (2004) but the key with its longevity is using the correct oil and using decent diesel...ie Shell which has cleaning additives. Conversely my mate bought a Polo with an identical engine at the same time, run solely on supermarket fuel and the EGR clogged up after 80k and the turbo went at 125k. At the time, we compared the EGR's on each others cars, mine was clean and his looked like some sort of 80 year olds lung who had smoked 100 a day.

Over that 190k i dread to think what the savings would be over the cost of the equivalent petrol at the time (1.8t 150bhp) which would probably get 30-35mpg vs 50-55mpg with similar if not higher servicing costs (ie spark plugs every 30k) and higher VED.

We're not studying "The effects of Quantitative Easing on emerging economies" here....

However it's important that people dont get themselves stuck in a vicious debt cycle where the costs are outweighing the returns. That becomes a nasty and deep hole to try and dig yourself out from.

Cannot understand the postulating logic of people who automatically assume …Cannot understand the postulating logic of people who automatically assume that taking out a loan, categorically constitutes a lack of affordability for those who are borrowing. Especially considering interest rates are on the floor currently.If hypothetically, I had 100k in cash now and this car was my next priority purchase, I would still happily take the 2.8% loan instead of touching any of the cash. Getting just a modest 5-7% return per annum on the 100k, even in the current climate doesn't take too much effort or thought. 7% - 2.8% = 4.2%pa return.Investing takes many, many, many forms.

​Is that buying an equivalent new car or are you planning on keeping your current car till 2055?

Just imagine what will happen when the 2018 Leaf is released with a 60kw battery and 200+ mile range.
The prices of the 24kw may plummet. When cars hit 250-300 miles the EV market will be a game changer.
Subsidies will disappear! Anything less than a 200 mile range will seem outdated. Bolt, Tesla 3 etc....

I can't see a reason why they won't be around the £11k mark.
As for throwing it away at 8 years and 100k if you have a good battery and it's been looked after (keeping between 20%-80%) then it may have 80% left and at worst 50%. It's still a usable car.

As for repairs there are not a great deal of issues and not expensive ones. Most of the high mileage early cars (USA data) the car seem to be getting tatty (trim falling off, worn seats) before they die. The series 2 (2013-) seem better put together.

Leg room.... Well insist you drive or sit in the front!
Many people have mentioned this. It may well be the 2018 has more leg/foot room.

Cant argue with that really - the Doblo is massive, which for 3+ kids is a real benefit.

I bought an '08 Honda FR-V in 2011, petrol auto EX-spec, leather, climate, roof rails, for £12200 from a Honda dealer - 32K miles on it. I felt I'd paid a lot but five years down the line the car has reached 70K for absolutely no unforseen expense. Its a fantastic vehicle, and feels like it will be around for another 10 years. So I'm incredibly biased about Japanese petrol cars, but with good reason!

As a new car deal its hot, but I'd have to side with the comments on buying a good used car for similar money.

A Toyota Verso 1.8 Valvematic, particularly the excellent auto, could be had for similar money, especially between now and end of December, which is the best time for dealers trying to offload cars before end of 2016. 5yr warranty from new on all Toyota's so could expect 18 months worth at least, for a far more refined, more powerful (subjectively) and more comfortable car.

Jap + non-turbo petrol is the best formula for reliability, and thats all that matters for crucial family transport.

Remarkably it seems you can have it with no AC - is the OPs spec without?!

Very hot deal, I have been looking for a new 7 seater with removable back seats.
