I am thinking about a lease (not particulary this one) but the final inspection bill puts me off.... Any experience (good or bad) on this topic??
I have a 1.0 Fiesta (140hp) which does 0-60 in 8.8? seconds or so. It can feel a bit slow from a stand still until the turbo kicks in, but then you honestly don't feel it's "just a 1 litre". It can pull quite hard in 3rd gear if the RPM is above 2,000. I was quite impressed at how small the engine is for the power it's producing along with MPG. I average about 45MPG with a petrol engine. I would still prefer a 2.0L with same horse power though. Just feels more 'organised'.
Yes, but that car has a bigger engine so it's 10 seconds is faster than a 1.0 litres 10 seconds. It's something to do with pythagoras and the tensile strength of playdoh.
I had a BMW 735i Year’s ago and the 0-60 was over 10 seconds!
Yes, people renew their leasing at the end of term, go to another contract and, overall, they end up paying for life as much as a mortgage for a house, getting just a mediocre driving experience and the satisfaction to claim a parking space in front of the landlord house. I mean, and excuse my English, where's the explorer behaviour and the feeling of property that once made Britain to be great?
I agree and think the Instagram/ living with Joneses culture pushes people into committing financial suicide. Not only you pay monthly, you don’t have full freedom to drive your car as much as you like. You most likely have to service your car at the dealers at full price and you pay for scuffs, wheel refurb etc once you hand your back. Because you’ve been showering all that money away chances are that you can’t afford to buy a car out right and you get a tiger lease car. Brilliant business plan by the car manufactures keeping people in work ! Suppose it gives me more choice when buying a used car lol.
what like Hondas - one of the most reliable makes there is?
No. You will not believe, my English was fine before years of practice with some natives. Beside my language, maybe you agree that it's such a foolish thing to pay ££££ to the 🦈 just to fill up a parking place.
Incorrect but good try (amongst the broken English).
Thank you :) - I got lucky with my current car on the same type of deal. After this though, I won't have to pay for the wifes car and then I can start looking at VRS or Golf R's ;)
Stock seats (not heated) and headlights, don't think they're Xenons. Seats were a bit firm but have softened up a bit over time - I guess you could spec better ones if you wanted to take the monthly hit.
It's only for a short term, any further I'd stay down in the week. It was a tough decision going from a 7 Mike commute to this, but paying off already :)
If it suits you then fair play but it would be a sad world if this was considered "normal".
Those are safety recalls. But no manufacturer is liable for engine issues after six years old due to longlife oil regimes applied at the time.
Gutted. There were some ok deals on the petrol 250 Amg Line a few weeks ago.
I'm looking for one of these now. And I can't find a descent deal :s
Did anyone else get one? It’s an amazing piece of machinery. 8)
If someone chooses to drive a kia, then great, if someone prefers to spend their money on a merc (which they earned) then that's great too, if someone wants to spend their money smoking 20 fags a day and blow 300 quid into the air, then that's their choice too....personally my choice is the merc but that's my choice, doesn't make anybody wrong.
Yeah, it was a really cheap deal to clear stock.
Direct from Audi dealers mate. To be fair that was a week or so ago. Some are "trickling though" apparently
where have all the deals gone I'm getting desperate now
Where did you get that information from. I ordered mine from audi directly and ordered on 16th april and i tracked it through the build. Build date 21st may and build completed 25th. Its currently on a ship to uk. I dont think 8wk for a new factory build is actually that bad.
Yeah, I wasn't sure if it would be something like that. Gap is only <£200 max so wouldn't be the biggest concern anyway I guess. Thanks for the info.
16 week lead time on the 1.4 engine by the way
I wouldnt. Try riding your bike to Edinburgh at 70mph and give us a comparison then (y)
Again, is it a good lease deal? Your model will always be cheaper but that's irrelevant when you consider the post. I have a bike, it's cheaper than a car, but I wouldn't measure it against this deal
Im proving a point that it is a rip off and how much profit they are making out of you thats all, but if you have money to burn go for it.
Surely this isn't about your preference, but if the deal is a good one. As it's clear your not interested in lease deals, stay away from them. I'm not interested in deals for bras, beans, bookmarks or a myriad of other things. I dont comment on them as it's a waste of my time, my effort and it detracts from the key point. Hot Deal or not
You stick to autotrader....you'll need another motor when your bargain buy packs up (y)
I know it doesn't have a DPF and also there is no light. Oh and my other car redlines at 9k and is DOHC. (nice username by the way)
How rude. And do you know who Laura Palmer is? Lol
you posted it. thanks. so let the members decide who needs it. Don't sell it. ok.[/quote] Although I might be talking out of turn here - are you admin? If not, let the members discuss the deals, don't dictate. ok.
Highly appropriate name
I think this deal is BRILLIANT. I quite fancy the SLK.
This site is about saving money??? Here's how!Look for a jap made Toyota Yaris (not french rebadge) 1.0 vvti pre 2000.These cars are statistically the best used mot pass vehicles out there. They are phenomenal vehicles. Both my wife and I own one. There are some recorded 300,000 milers still running on a 1.0 with diesel performance. Good ones are worth their weight in gold. Don't believe me....ask honest john. He raves about them:-)
Wise up buy a motorcycle and live your dreams.dreams. Lifes too short for under performing tin boxes.
No, not at all, the cars looked perfectly fine to me. The inspector just wrote out mega reports detailing every little mark etc and just seemed like they expected the cars back looking like new. Also they didn't have a choice of where to get the required work done, they just had to pay the billoO
For just 3p a day you can prolong the life of your dying car. Thats all it costs for a diy oil and filter change on an old car. Not changing the oil is disrespectful to the car for what it gives you back.
I prefer the sound of the 4.2 Out of the 8000 miles per year, about 200 of that would be wheel spin :)
I like the S3 but my girlfriend is getting a golf R so was looking for something a little more further removed.
voted hot - this is a cracking deal for this car
I used to have an S3 Sportback but would love an S5 as feel its less boy racer. Would have one with DSG though.
There are deals on prestige vehicle leasing for around this amount that pop up on here. This just isn't worth it.
I love lease deals but this is one hideous car, 5 doors on a mini just doesn't look right
£263.46 per month if you add the deposit and fee, 6323.62 divided by 24 months = £263.46
It might be more than some people can afford but it's still at least £4K cheaper than from the MINI dealer....
shows as POA for me when you choose 36 months & anyone know the cost for 36months @ 8ooo miles pa please?
Details are here https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/volkswagen-up-1-0-take-up-3dr-35-months-59-99-960-initial-payment-total-3239-39-2050686
Is that a personal lease though?
It's now on their website (for 36 month lease though).
Is the nearly new one I posted any nearer for you?
They have the GTD version (140bhp) http://www.centralukvehicleleasing.co.uk/vehicle/choose_your_lease/57649/volkswagen/golf/20_tdi_gtd_5dr.html @ £139.99
£200 per month once all costs are counted ie 4844/24. Not sure if this is a good deal
Ok fair enough, where did you find that? Be interested in seeing for other cars.
It's not about the ultimate power but the area under the torque curve. Plenty of omphhh there. 67 hp at 2000 rpm and almost 50hp at 1500 rpm.
In my experience 105bhp is a bit low for car Golf size
Forget the leasephobics. That's a very good price for 7str Acenta.
Much cheaper than to 'buy' from dealer ???? Makes no sense as u will not own this vehicle its a lease !
might want to change the title from Issan to Nissan?
prices you quote are all wrong. its followed by £175 plus vat a month
2wd can be cheaper to run than 4wd
This model is aimed at the very popular 'cross over' market which the majority of models on sale don't have 4wd. Personally I'd prefer 4wd but this deal is too expensive anyhow IMHO.
I think a 2wd drive makes perfect sense or do these struggle over speed bumps?
Makes absolute sense, actually.
Anyone recommend a company that does 12 month lease?
What is it that people say? I don't need one but I'm going to buy one anyway! Not sure if better deal is 18 or 24 months.
5000 miles per annum. Great if you only travel a max of 13 miles a day!!
Technically toyota make these
But it's French
It stated 15000 on the policy but that does sound quite a bit. According to what car after 3 years the car will be worth over 17000 grand. Not sure if the cars short fall would be over 15000 so 5000 grand should suffice. What does everyone else think
What GAP claim limit are people going for? Surely £5000 is enough, thus a final price of £94 after the code?
Voucher code does work and knocks it down to £251 for the two years. This includes the tyre cover as well. Not worth not getting it for this amount as two tyres would cost more than this. https://www.ala.co.uk/retail/quote.php?action=goto&group=cars&options=3 Also 10% off for quidco and topcashback but not sure if you can get both voucher code and quidco at same time
I haven't tried it yet but i think VP10 is the voucher code for 10% off an ala policy.
Comment On checking with ala.co.uk you can get gap insurance for about 100 and with tyre cover 150. So if you buy over the two year that would be 300 and would include a new set of tyres just in case you manage to puncture them all accidentally !!!
Very well, I'm man enough to admit I am wrong and this is a website glitch. Will expire the deal.
"For those drivers without the gift of sight, when you click the link it defaults to 5000 mile limit. Change this to 8000 to see this deal" Added to the description an hour after my last comment. :p How sad. :( I don't know how you can consider a website bug, which they won't honour to be a good deal. ollie2001 contacted them and they said you only get the car for 18 months. What more proof do you want? Get over yourself. :D
I think you're naive if you think that most people know how to spot a bad used car in the £3.5k region. You're either trawling dodgy used car markets or trying to find something privately. You're also being very one sided when talking about a possible £500 repair, you can easily buy a £3500 car and find it needs a £1500 repair. My dads old Mondeo was worth £3k and needed a new turbo for the TDi engine which would have cost £1500. A lot of used car garages whole business model is buying cars with issues that can be masked for long enough to flog to unsuspecting customers. By your logic though a car like a C1 which will lose a huge percentage off it's value (compared to say a Mini or an S3) when first bought would be a good lease surely?
Thanks for checking. Their website is really buggy. Changing the mileage to 8k does indeed display 24 months, but hit Refresh and it goes back to 18 months. Perhaps that explains why they say "Please be aware that prices may vary from those displayed" at the bottom of the page... (_;) Agreed this deal should be expired, as it NEVER existed in the first place.
Do you lease clothes and shoes? It's always a gamble, but most reasonable mileage cars you buy for £3500 aren't going to develop hugely expensive faults in 18 months if they're properly checked before you buy them. Even if they do develop a fauly which costs you £500, you're still up on any lease deal when you come to sell it. As I said, I can understand leasing a prestige badge car which is going to lose huge amounts of value and cost an arm and a leg should anything go wrong but not a C1
Lease is another word for rental if you like
what will happen at the end of 17 months? will they take the car back?
I wouldnt trust a Citroen with " pyrotechnically" charged seatbelts as its likely to short circuit at some point blowing your knackers off ! oO
The only bonus is the short lease. I bet compulsory servicing costs add another £500++++
Lol, I can get a PS4 for £5 a month for 12 months......................as long as I pay £350 up front!
Can you give me a link to the 320d i can't find it Edit-Found it
Rev the car on 2nd or 3rd gear, put handbrake on at 60 mph....then make face like Forrest Gump and hand back the keys! oO
A large spacecraft appears over the horizon, hovers above the car, and warps it up in a brilliant beam. Or you can hand it back.
What happens at the end of the lease period?
