My yardage skills need some work (lol) (lol) I’m assuming that means 3 to 4 miles.

This has long been debated and I think in many surveys (JD Power survey comes to mind) has been proved beyond doubt that MB is nothing more than an expensive badge, with fancy electronics that break over time and expensive tires. I suppose the good thing is that the engine hasn’t gone kaboom yet although depends on how long your warranty is?

Its because they all focus on chasing market share by aiming to sell in volume. The only way to shift cars in the volume they want / need to is with heavy discounting. BMW do the same.

Yup. The standard car is dynamically fairly average. A 1 series will handle better and drive better. Most people will neither know nor care though.

A class is a poor drive. Its well documented in reviews. Drove it for a year and had enough of it. Not sure about pricing but BMW 1 series would be a much better drive, again well documented in reviews. And yes I have drive both and I agree.

So you went for the 3rd most 'poorly made' one out of the 8 (and Mini is German, really) - but with the biggest discount.

jrw

You save £2k on either option....you save an extra £568.80 on option 2. As I said you can get the £2k either way....Christ. It is a discount....its a measure of currency you do not have to pay to purchase an object....the fact it is offered as an incentive for taking out finance is totally irrelevant as they can't claw it back if you pay it off. You don't pay the £2k, you don't get the £2k in your account so you don't see the £2k anywhere but a minus figure on the invoice when you pick up the car - ie its a DISCOUNT. Not turning it into anything but what it is, a discount....call it what you like, its a discount. Bit like Skoda in 2010 were doing their cars VAT free....They weren't of course, it was a discount disguised as this, the VAT was still on there and this figure was just in a box on the invoice with a "-" in front of it, just like a "deposit contribution", "dealer contribution", "retailer contribution" or anything else than the dealer decides to call it that day....its still x amount you don't have to pay to buy the car therefore a discount. Goodbye.

ezzer72

Jeez, where do I start. Trust me - I VERY MUCH, GET IT. I can't be bothered checking your numbers, but you plainly say there that you save £568.80 - so not £2,000 then? (or £3.64 per week, to better compare to my example). And to save that £3 a week, you could end up with a car in massive negative equity, with no option to return to the finance company. It isn't a discount, it's a separate incentive paid by the respective finance company, but you can play around to turn it into a partial discount (in your example, about a quarter). I'm done now, you really need to give up - I'm sure I know little or nothing about your line of work, but I'm not trying to catch you out on it.

jrw

OMG, you still don't get it....The deposit contribution comes off the invoice pre sale and has nothing to do with the PCP - it is simply free money to entice you to take the PCP - you can sell it how you want but the PCP is still more interest than a bank loan however you sell it. Option 1 - You have a £10k PCP from a dealer at 6.4% and get a £2k discount for taking it.....If you kept this PCP you would still have £10k to pay back on the PCP at 6.4% - That is £306 a month or £11016 total payable in finance. Option 2 - You have a £10k PCP from a dealer at 6.4% and get £2k discount for taking it......If you pay off this PCP within 14 days you will occur no charges (just daily interest....say £10). You get to keep the £2k discount (at this point it isn't part of the finance calculations at all as this has already come off the invoice before you have paid a penny). You either pay the £10k PCP balance in cash or you take a loan - Sainsburys do £10k at 2.9% which is £290.20 a month or £10447.20 total payable in finance. So option 2 means you are £568.80 better off for taking and paying off the PCP rather than sticking with it as you get the £2k with either option....ie its a DISCOUNT off the car at time of purchase and nothing to do with the finance, rather a discount for taking out the finance hence the phrasing DEPOSIT contribution. It forms no part of the loan calculations at all. I know that the £568 is better in my bank account than a finance companies (3 years VED for my Golf R or 2 years insurance)....do this over a greater amount or longer term and the savings will obviously be much greater. All for the sake of 5 mins completing a loan application online and 5 mins phoning the finance company to cancel the PCP. This is the sort of thing that HUKD is all about. Not sure how I can make this any simpler to be honest. Obviously if you are sold on PCP and want a new car every 2-4 years then you just keep the PCP....however if you have the money to pay it off or intend on keeping the car and pocket the extra discount whatever incentive the relevant dealer is offering at any given month on any given model then its a no brainer to pay it off and fund from elsewhere. My point is that if you weren't intending on taking out PCP but there is an incentive attached to it then its a no brainer to take it out and pay it off with no loss of incentive regardless of how you are funding the redemption.

I agree with this guy...... to a certain extent. A heavy car like this one with a 1.6 petrol engine will cost more to run than a 1.6 Diesel which would be an ideal size engine for the weight of the car. Personally I'd rather get a 1.9 Diesel or 1.8 petrol upwards for piece of mind.

Amazing reading everyones "opinion on Alfas", I have had various Alfa 159 TI x 2 , Brera, Spiders x2 and now the Giulia Veloce. I have also had the Mazdas, Mitsu, Minis x 4 and I can say honestly they are all as reliable as each other. We have now had the Veloce for 3 months and its just a stunning car and a pleasure to drive. We have it on a two year deal and I truly believe we will have another one (like the 159s we loved). You only live once so why not have an Alfa, ALWAYS brings a smile to my face when I get in it. Enjoy (highfive)

Seen a nice example of the Celica the other week. Example below of how petty this little 1.75l engine that they use in 4C is. Considering weight of car is 1400kg and in FWD, unlike the RWD and 900kg weight of the 4C. Although I'll still stick with my Giulia Quadrifolgio.

Just to add to the list of people who paid off finance early. It was all very straight forward, no hassle at all. Got my car through Drive the Deal and they were great, all happened exactly as advertised.

marathonic

Othen you are getting confused beween PCP and PCH. It certainly is possible to do what multiple people are all stating.

adamski8080

PCP is not a rental. It is a purchase agreement with a deferred balloon payment. This can be settled at any time and contributions towards this by the lender or manufacturer will NOT be reclaimed. As a car dealer I know this for a fact. As previously stated the majority of buyers do not settle early so the interest charged compensates for the contribution. Those who can settle early however benefit.

othen

Thank you for that. I'm still not convinced it would work with a PCP: If I rent a £25,000 car under a PCP (so I never own the car) and get a £5,000 deposit contribution, then I decide I don't want to rent the car the day after I drive it away and pay the finance company what I owe for the rental plus what the car would be worth in 3 years' time - will I will still be allowed to keep the £5,000? I can see that might work with a HP agreement where the car is being used to secure the loan, but not under a rental plan like a PCP. Perhaps I'm just too old fashioned.

Just had the following email from drive the deal... We are emailing to advise you that our quoted discounts for Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF are only going to be available for factory ordered cars for another few days. To place a factory order for your chosen specifcation and take advantage of the discounted quote that you have seen on our website over the last two weeks, you will need to place an order before Monday 31 July, and prefereably this week in order to be certain of getting the deal. After that time, the price will be substanitally more expensive as we will be unable to place further factory orders at the current quoted discount. During August, we will then be able to offer you some stock cars at the current discounted prices, but if you do wish to choose your own specification and have your car built to order for September delivery at the current quoted price, you will need to confirm your order by Monday 31st July at the latest, and preferably this week to be certain of getting the deal. The time deadline has been imposed by the dealer who has been accepting our customers’ orders at these discounts, and we can only place further orders at these prices while the dealer will still accept them. It is possible they will run out of factory build slots this week, but we suspect they will accept an order placed over the weekend. We have sent you this email because you recently took a quote from our website for a new Jaguar XE or Jaguar XF, we hope you have found it relevant and useful. With kind regards, Broker Team www.drivethedeal.com If if you are thinking of ordering, best be quick...

When buying a car new I don't care about it discounts etc all I look at is how much I can approximately get in 2-3 years, this is how I work out is a lease or purchase the best route. With regards to this deal if I could only get £10k in the 30 months regardless of the discount that is still £5k lost over the period, a lease of £6k of the same period will get a far better vehicle and less risk with resale, new model, monthly payment etc.

Unlike you Bertie, I've positively contributed to HUKD. You personally go out of your way to troll and provoke. Alas, you think your opinions are superior to others and I am well within my right to ignore your rants. Fortunately, I, like others, have no care about what you have to say because you join most threads so late in the day, that the conversation has been and gone. Quoting me from a post (made on a another website) I made five years ago. Tragic. Are you telling me that one can not own a car and lease one at the same time? I lease my main car and own four others. If you have a problem with that concept, take it up with someone who cares. Besides, why do I need to pay a garage £400 to repair paint damage on a bumper when I can do it myself? Keep trolling Bertie - it's what you do best ;)

For those who said my criticism of this car is ridiculous, just to let you know i found and posted a "similar" deal. Passat TFSI, brand new, £15,911 on the road. Currently at 800 degrees and climbing. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/brand-new-vw-passat-1-4-tfsi-s-15-911-5-698-saving-drivethedeal-com-2736356 Probably wont "beat" the heat of this because for some people the Merc badge trumps the wrong spec, but to me the Passat @ £15,911 makes for a more honest package than this at £21K odd.

pgilc1

+1 Its the wrong car at the right price. They're being sold off cheap, but even at that you can buy a year old one on autotrader for £16K+ from a dealer, meaning a trade price of £14K, which suggests they're unloved on the used market too.

That is probably the sweet spot of price/spec/engine in the range from memory of looking at them when they first came out. I looked at leasing one last year (can't remember if it was longitude or limited) but at the time they were giving yetis away so went for one of those for the family wagon instead. Happy with the yeti but a renegade in the right colour looks a million times better.

palmlots

We have the Jeep renegade, longitude, it's an excellent car but ours is the diesel. This seems like a good price.

tattertatter

I may have made it sound worse than it is, there will be very few roads it will struggle to get up, 150 nm of torque is a reasonable amount and as it's naturally aspirated ( a rarity) so you aren't waiting for a turbo to kick in to get your tourque. I think your comparisons are fine and highlight an important point when spending that much money, do the research, take a test drive, be aware of what your getting. My opinion of the engine is just that, my opinion, and some people will think it's more than adequate and some people will think it's awful. I just thought it was below average. But if someone spent about £15k on the last new car they bought (in the last few years) then I think they would be pleasantly surprised by what this offers.

I have just got one. It is ideal for me because my journey to work is a 14 mile round trip, and I manage to do it all electric. I am usually getting +99.9mpg on a daily basis, and 86mpg as an average over the last 3 weeks. I have done 250 miles, with 200 on electric only. What this means is that the 50 or so miles driven on petrol, the economy was around 20 mpg, however, these were mainly done in sport + mode pushing it, when I was having some fun seeing what it could do. A more representative mpg is probably the delivery mileage which was 140 miles away, and he got 47 mpg for mainly motorway miles, although the delivery driver said he was not driving it particularly efficiently. Mine is costing me £350/month including vat on a 3+23 lease and this includes road fund tax over the life of the lease. i got the C350e Saloon Sport Premium model. I'm very happy with it, it a beautiful car, lovely to drive, and has a few driver aids like assisted breaking and haptic accelerator pedal, but must admit I am disappointed with the lower than advertised range - I get 14-15 miles off a full charge, but there is still 22% charge when the 14 miles are complete, and it is still possible to get another 3-4 miles of electric only but only in slow moving traffic. So I am guessing this is where Mercedes get their 19 miles range. On a full charge on e mode it is still quite nippy, and gets away from the lights quicker than most. Flick it into sport mode and nothing can touch it! The "350" refers to the 3.5 litre engine which is the equivalent power of the 2 litre engine plus the boost it gets from the electric motor. In electric only, on a motorway I can get it up to around 50-60 mph before the petrol engine kicks in, I then push it up to 70-80 mph using petrol then cruise or coast in electric to maintain the speed around 70 mph. I plan to penny pinch on my daily commute, so I can have some fun when I get the chance! The transition between electric and petrol drive is seamless and it only noticeable when the rev counter needle flicks up. I had a diesel before and was only getting around 45 mpg from that. A friend of mine has a 2 litre petrol BMW and tells me he only gets 33 mpg from that for a similar commute to mine. I got mine via https://www.contracthireandleasing.com/personal/car-leasing/mercedes-benz/c-class/ although checking now the best price is around £365. I kept an eye on the prices after I ordered and saw an AMG estate for about £325/month, which I would have gone for if I hadn't already placed the order. If you are leasing, watch out for the admin fee in the upfront payment, which was £300 for me. I went through Yes Leasing, although the finance was with Mercedes. Also watch out as the road fund tax is over £400 for this model, and not all leasing companies include this in the rental. I have ordered a charge point from https://www.chargedev.co.uk/domestic-application which cost £149 supplied and fitted. Insurance was £720 for me, but I have no no-claims because I have just come from a company car and had to make a claim a year ago due to car park damage (scraped wheel arch) from an unknown third party. I would recommend it as a good all rounder which would suit the shorter commute and run around town, but would not recommend it for the long distance motorway driver.
