Holy thread resurrection Batman. This thread is over six months old and what you have said isn't true. You are not the registered keeper of a leased car, at least not in the DVLA and legal definition of the term. The lease provider is the registered keeper and they remain responsible for taxing the vehicle and would receive any traffic offences notices, which they would then nominate you as the driver for.

it will be legally owned by the lease company but will be registered to you. for the purpose of speeding tickets etc

Does that include or exclude ones with French derived engines!?



Ideally not, A class seems to have bad enough reviews for me to avoid though perks like Nav are cheap on executive versions but Audi/BMW preferable

The A4 also weighs 5% less and gets to 60 almost three seconds quicker.

Must be all the fibreglass and stick on plastic weighing the Renault (I mean Merc) down.

Proper Mercedes? They went over 20 years ago. From the current range the only model worthy is the S class class range and real AMG range. Everything else is just company car fodder or white goods with a prestige badge aimed at self important debt monkeys with orange faced wives..

Yuk. The new A class is pretty openly targeted at people who can't afford a proper merc. And it looks crap as well.

My previous car was a Mercedes and my new car a Lexus. I'm not going to compare the drive to these because they are in a different price bracket.



With respect, I disagree. The Mokka is classed as a small crossover vehicle, as is the Qashqai. The price range of the Mokka is 16-24k and the Qashqai is 18-28k. Retail price of the Mokka 1.4 exclusive is 21k, retail of a similer spec 1.2DIG Qashqai is 23.8k.
These cars compete in the same market sector for the same customers and the Qashqai is able to command higher values because it is a better car.
I'm sure the Lexus regard themselves as a direct competitor to Mercedes (certainly the early 90's models actually looked like S class Merc's). Whether the buying public regard them as Jap Merc's is clear by the equivalent Lexus being a bit cheaper. With my recent experience of Merc's however, I suspect you have bought the better car.

Would be a deal at 13k all in but at nearly 20k this car is way overpriced! I have a friend who has the Chevrolet version (cant remember the name but its almost identical) he paid 12.5k new pre-registered for his. Thats what these should be priced at.
edit - Thinking about it I test drove an Antara (the Mokkas big brother) a few years ago and that was only around 13k brand new pre-registered.

I'm not to sure why the negativity on the drive. OK it is a little under powered, however these drive OK. I quite enjoyed it, though the one I hired was a higher specification.

Vauxhall Insignia 1.8i VVT Energy 5dr £16689.00 @ Evans Halshaw
Hire Purchase Offer Only £209 per month with £4,000 Deposit after £2,500 Scrappage Allowance
Latest commentsPost comment

I loved my Insignia but the 1.8 petrol engine it had was awful. I admittedly drive pretty heavy footed but I was getting around 19mpg commuting to work.. needed your foot down just to make it move.
They are nice cars with the right engine but not worth this much by any stretch.

Very heavy on fuel body too heavy engine performance isnt good
I never got chance to drive diesel version but was not impressed with new astra or insignia

Not another duff Vauxhall on the same day. As with the Mokka, test drive before buying! The petrol Insignia is truly dire to drive, totally gutless and unrefined. The 2.0D ones are fine and make a great motorway cruiser. COLD at any price!

No no no not a Vauxhall

But it is a Vauxhall, really!!

Yes if you read the reviews - The new Astra is a Golf/Focus Beater - The vast majority are giving it 4 or 5 stars.

Don't under estimate the new Astra - its an absolute cracking car - the best Vaux have made. Residuals should be good!

​presumably you know of a hire deal that comes with fuel?!?



The OP had stated that their weekly cost was only £17 which would be cheaper than using the bus etc

but what they'd forgot to include in that £17 was the £600 first payment (as commented by soniiic) and fuel, insurance (as commented by me)

My comment had nothing to do with the hiring a car with fuel - wish some people had common sense rather than trying to look good.

Zoe: No VED, servicing you state is £100, 12 months battery rental at £45 is £540, 7,000 miles excess mileage at 5p is £350, and the charging for all 10k at £2.50 a charge and your stated 70 mile range is a minimum of 143 charges, the reality will obviously be a lot higher as you're never going to get to 69.9 miles before you stop at a charging point, so £357.50 minimum. I make that to be £2245 to do 10,000 miles or 22.45p/mile (OUCH!). [/quote]

So £100 for servicing plus £540 battery rental plus £350 excess mileage charge plus £357.50 comes to £2245? I make that £1347.50!

Also the £2.50 per charge is approximate and is based on charging the car from empty to full charge, which in reality costs approx. £2.32 on my tariff, you only pay for the electricity used, not per charge. I used 69mpg for the Yaris, do you think you'll get that in the real world?

There is no way the Zoe is an Aygo sized car, it is the same size as a Yaris, believe me, I have had a test drive in one.

Furthermore, I did not switch it to a Leaf telling you it's cheaper at all, you stated a small petrol car is cheaper to run than an ev after you included battery rental into your calculation, I purely compared my Leaf's running costs, as I don't pay battery rental. You say I was conned, you are wrong, I was not conned, you say your figures prove me wrong, again you are wrong, you can't even do basic mathematics!

Now I can't be bothered to respond to this anymore, so if anyone is looking to buy a new car, ask Avalon-One as he obviously knows his stuff!

No I have not been conned at all, I knew exactly what I was buying and … No I have not been conned at all, I knew exactly what I was buying and the figures that came with it, I didn't buy my leaf to save me money on a petrol car, (I traded an Audi 1.8T Cabriolet in for it), I bought it because I needed a car that would transport a dog. So I went and test drove a few cars and fell in love with the leaf, it is fast, silent, comfortable and lovely to drive. I get free parking and free charge in the council run carparks, I've never been to a petrol station in 2 years, I work some nights, so in the winter I can pre heat my car using my phone, 5 minutes before I finish work and it's lovely and warm, with all the windows free of ice. I also got a whopping friends and family discount from Nissan. I'm not saying to people go out and buy a leaf, but I am saying it was perfect for me and as for the RAC 2013 figures, they're comparing a Yaris and Fiat 500 to a leaf, the leaf is a Focus size car with a brilliant spec, so the comparison is unfair in my opinion.Now on to you proving me wrong about the running costs of an ev compared to a small ice car, firstly you compared the price of a bottom of the range 3 door Yaris to a Renault Zoe, which is a 5 door car with a very good spec, so even with the bottom of the range Yaris 5 door, putting a £99 deposit down, brings the monthly payment to £191 per month, you quoted a Yaris Hybrid for £169 per month from Toyota, that's with a deposit of £4710, so that blows that out of the water, granted these figures are for 10k per year, however, put the extra approx £30 per month on the Zoe price to cover the extra 7,000 miles and it'll still be cheaper and that's without the fuel saving. Then there's the extra cost of road tax and servicing.Now if you intend to buy a car and keep it after the initial term, then of course the ice makes more sense, however over the 4 year term, you'll find the Zoe to be the cheaper option. Zoe YarisInsurance £250.00 £250.00Tax £0.00 £30.00 Servicing £100.00 £150.00Fuel/Year £358.00 £819.00Payment £174.00 £191.00Total Cost £2,796.00 £3,541.00Per Month £233.00 £295.08These figures are based on 10,000 miles per year, fuel at £1.21 per litre and electric at £2.50 per charge and are based on giving the car back after the rental term. The insurance and service costs are approx and are taken from my experience of servicing an ev and an ice.So to reiterate, I posted this deal so that if someone is looking for a cheap new car, here is an option, I am not saying go out and buy an ev at all, go and test drive cars and work out the figures and the deal that suit you.



So hang on, I shoot down the Zoe's deal and you switch it to a Leaf and try telling me it's cheaper, then when that theory is blown out of the water, it's suddenly not about saving money and back to the Zoe? You have to know that even by widening the criteria this just won't end well surely? I'll play along though, heck if i'm wrong i'm man enough to admit it, are you?

Firstly the Zoe is a small ev city car, I should compare it to a Aygo/C1/106/Up/Citygo etc. in fairness but I went a class above. The only RAC figure quoted was the average distance a UK car covers each year as it was the first source with reasonable credibility, the mpg average is the published book value. The only reason the Leaf ever got compared to a Yaris was because you brought it into the conversation before I destroyed the 'my car (the leaf) is significantly cheaper to run' argument as i'm about to do on the Zoey.

I specifically compared the real world running costs of a Zoe and a Yaris but you've chosen to widen the scope to full running costs which is fair enough, the more informed a person is then hopefully the easier it is for them to make a choice. I'd point out that several Yaris's have 200k and a few are now over 400k without significant issues, you won't see that out of a Zoe any time soon, the owner I know can't even get them to sort out his charging card for god knows how many months. Ironically he still preaches about the low cost per mile - sound familiar? The Zoey is £99/month and £45 a month for the battery rental, that's why your deal was edited to £144 and that lease is based on doing no more than 8.22 miles a day on average (3k/365) which kind of makes the whole need for a car dubious, but i'll go with what Renault seem to think the car is suitable for, they charge 5p per mile to go over that, your 10,000 comparison seems reasonable so here goes:

Zoe: No VED, servicing you state is £100, 12 months battery rental at £45 is £540, 7,000 miles excess mileage at 5p is £350, and the charging for all 10k at £2.50 a charge and your stated 70 mile range is a minimum of 143 charges, the reality will obviously be a lot higher as you're never going to get to 69.9 miles before you stop at a charging point, so £357.50 minimum. I make that to be £2245 to do 10,000 miles or 22.45p/mile (OUCH!).

Now here's where I start to disagree. Firstly the Yaris hybrid, it was literally an off the cuff remark, I didn't look at/mention the deposit or use it as a comparison, if I had the significantly higher mpg would have made the cost per mile even lower. I'm also not going to bother costing insurance, they're both low groupings so the cost should be broadly similar and as you suggest the same it looks like a moot point anyway.

Yaris: No VED (since July this year on the 1.0vvti), servicing is zero for the first two years from the current offers as is zero % finance, fuel ... I know you've not been to a petrol station in 2 years but 121.9? I paid 117.9 the day I quoted the figure, Asda have knocked 2p/ltr off the going rate since then so it should be that or lower now, if my local Sainsbury has done the same it'll be 116.9. You already know from the above it'll come out at 8p/mile so £800 for 10k.

Clear winner by £1345 is the Yaris.

Purchase price, OK you went with the 'cheap' finance offer on a Zoe so £99 a month or £1,188 per year (we've already counted the battery cost above and i'm not about to count it twice), using your figure of £191 the Yaris it comes out at £2,292 per year so the winner is the Zoe by £1,104, again i'll just use your figure for simplicity rather than shopping it out for a deal.

In summary:
Zoe: £2,245 + £1,188 = £3,433 or 34.33p/mile.
Yaris: £800 + £2,292 = £3,092 or 30.92p/mile or a saving of £341

Now surely you can see that even the 'cheap' Zoe is more expensive to run per mile and per year than a petrol car even one of the non base spec and widening the criteria/using the finance details you provided, obviously it'd be even more one sided in favour of the Yaris if you went with base spec, in much the same way it'd be cheaper with an Aygo etc. which i'd argue is more the market that the Zoe is pitched at with it's 8 miles a day average included in the battery lease.

You're wrong, that's the flex models. You can buy the battery outright.



I'll be honest I just went to the Nissan site and looked at the options it gave, they seem to be less open about outright purchase, but a little google goes a long way and I can now see why. After your post I hit google and found this which suggests you can pay FIVE GRAND on top of the car cost for the battery and own it.

Keeping with the Yaris example (or the Fiat 500 - the numbers are the same for mpg) and say you do 60k using today's figures, that's £4800 for petrol or £5,000 for the battery before you're off the forecourt, then you need to charge it 857 times at £2.50 a shot, that's another £2142 according to Steeleez figure. So 60,000 miles in a Leaf costs £7232 (12.05p/mile) vs £4800 (8p/mile). Again I don't see that as any kind of win for en EV. If yu scale it up to 100k it's £8,571 in a Leaf and £8,000 in a Yaris. Before you get too excited and extend that to break even over 100k remember that the Leaf battery will have gone through an absolute minimum of 1428 charging cycles using the real world experience of Steeleez and won't be capable of holding the same capacity as it did when new after that kind of duty cycle, that means more charges and the real world usage unlike a petrol car where you use it till you need to fill it up you aren't likely to do 70 miles exactly between charges so top up charging is inevitable meaning that the the real life number of charges required to hit 100k will be significantly higher than the optimum figure.

So taking all of the above into consideration and using the RAC's 2013 figure for average miles of 7,900 here's the pitch to part you from your cash:
If you
a) Do less than 70 miles at any one time
b) Plan on keeping the same car beyond 100k (12.6 years at average miles)
c) Have a location available to install a charging point
d) Believe the battery will last at least 12.6 years (at average miles) without developing a fault or significant performance hit
e) Have a crystal ball and know it won't get written off

Then just maybe your cost per mile might be lower, yes you still paid 10k+ more for the car in the first place vs a similar petrol car, but potentially you could save a few pounds on fuel over 100k

I prove the deal's poor so now it's about your car, well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Nissan disagree with you. Page 7 here makes it clear Nisan offer 3 contract options with different mileage included, the cheapest is 7,500 miles/year on a 3 year contract for £70/month, 2 years is £80/month and 1 year is £90/month, you might not have it broken down depending on how you financed it, but you are paying it and that's a minimum of 11.2p a mile in battery costs assuming you do the full allowance, you could do less and the average cost per mile would obviously be higher



You're wrong, that's the flex models. You can buy the battery outright.

I'm all fairness I've lived in hot climes for the majority of the past 20 years and have to say I think AC is a "must have" when I buy a car these days.

In all of that time, I've owned one car that's now 20 years old (in Florida) which is a Nissan 240SX (S14) all that's ever needed to be done to the AC system is a quick recharge on 2 occasions, and we've owned that car since 2001. Each recharge was between $6~8 using a DIY "R134a" refill can from the local car parts store.

On the other hand my mums 2004 Kia Picanto needed a replacement condenser a couple of weeks back. The condenser was sourced on eBay for £83. I would have installed it myself (I was on holiday at the time) but I only had one day left of my break and didn't want to squander the last morning. The part was replaced by a local garage for £80 then the gas was refilled by ATS for free as it had only been recharged (for the first time in it's life) during the winter (@£27). So £160+£27, over 10 years isn't really that bad is it? Some people pay that for a car service, which really only involves a £15 oil & filter change...

I've never had any issues with AC regarding sore throats etc., but do know of people who think they are affected by it. That might just be down to the drier air or suchlike?

Another friend of mine just had her 2002 Honda Jazz AC system recharged last year (for the 1st time) but she got some sort of combo deal on the AC and MOT that was somehow less than the price of the MOT alone with a coupon. (<£25).

The funny thing with car AC systems in the UK is that it's very expensive to buy the DIY kits for recharging the system, it's much better/cheaper to wait for a deal at Kwik Fit/ATS etc., and let them take care of it.

Hint: Get the system recharged or serviced in the winter when there is little or no demand and they are happy to have extra business out of season.

If you wait a year and get something like a up with brake assist bet the insurance will be even cheaper and you would also get a car that does well in crash tests.

I'd rather chop my cock off with a rusty spoon than deal with evans Halshaw again. I bought a £400 extended warranty from them which wasn't worth a penny. The small print dictated I pay £100 diagnostic fee for any issues, and when I took in my car they just kept wrongly diagnosed things and made sure those things were not covered under warranty. I ended up about £1000 out of pocket before giving up on it. [email protected]!!

Traded our 5 year old C1 in a year ago and got £3k+ off the new one. Never had any major repairs, tyres, wipers etc. were the only bits ever replaced. Passed 2 MOTs with no work and no advisories. Starter motor was playing up at the end, but not serious enough to replace. 5 years motoring for the cost of petrol, routine servicing (annual) and consumables, bargain. And a 3 year warranty as mentioned above. What do you want for a runaround? One of the best cars for city/town use, and we used it for many long trips too. What did we trade it in for? Another C1, VTR+. Even better than the first one. Looked at every other car in its class and failed to find a better deal.

Get a black box fitted and don't drive like a knob: ingenie

My daughter bought a107 from Evans Halshaw and I just told them no extras and it wasn't a problem. With 12 months driving as a named driver on another car the insurance was £700 full comp.Oh she was 18 as well.

Evans Halshaw service is appalling, they will try to sell you all sorts of unnecessary add-ons, and it is a Citroen. Shop around for insurance and you will get it for around £1000 and shop around for a decent car and dealer.

The C1 connexion model in question is not a base model but was the top of the range model prior to Citroen renaming all the C1 range!

Tell me has your Vauxhall corsa VXR nurburgring been in there garage more times than some old 1990's ever has?! They treat you like crap and don't want to do the work when u have paid a boat load of cash. No straight answers. Garages that don't treat your car properly using metal screw drivers to rip off ur door cards leaving holes in the plastic?!, flaking paint on mirrors having them re-sprayed 4 times?! in 6 months?! curbing your alloys when they take it to be repaired if u can call it a repair?!, Car comes back with more dents and scratches on it than it went in with. after 12 months the gearbox goes and they have to replace cause its a KNOWN fault and still they drag there heals?! and then the car comes back with no working radio cause there stupid enough not to put the code in to it when they have removed the battery?!

Terrific car. You could make yourself wee roads out of you're mammy's buttons on the living room carpet.

It's horses for courses imo. The mentioned BMW is good value because you have let someone else take the main depreciation. But it's not an alternative to the little C1, simply because they are totally different kinds of car.

My OH had a big prestige estate (bought used at a decent price), but when he got a job nearer home he bought a Hyundai i10 - you can park it in a tiny gap, costs loads less to run - and he is really chuffed with it. It does everything he needs - he now needs a 'city car' not a luxo barge to cruise the motorways.

If you don't need loads of boot space or legroom, these little cars are great.

Great price for anyone looking to buy a new car, with good mpg and running costs, that's what the thread and deal are about.I know it's a matter of opinion but can't see many people wanting a beemer if they are intersted in a car like this, like myself.

An average of 58 mpg (mostly city driving) will save you a lot of money with petrol prices currently at a record high and only £20 road tax.

Also a very good car for driving in the snow!
