To drive Panda you need to look like Panda

50mpg according to HJ: http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/realmpg/fiat/panda-2012/12

Unless you were cruising at 60mph in 3rd gear? Mind you there's nothing better than the purring sound of a Panda's engine.

I'm going with the Aston Martin deal instead as its better value....

​Running cost of this (excluding 1st year service) is <9p a mile, even if it did do 30mpg which I severely doubt the sheer value alone more than makes up for it.

If you consider the golf lease currently on here is ~44p/mile.

Maybe, but at least you won't be picking up the bill, and chances are the hire car will be better anyway, so win win.
I'm into cars and I quite like the Panda, even the most dull and cheap Italian cars have something about then, you can't say about Vauxhalls or Fords.
Wish there were similar deals on automatics. All the cheapish deals seem to be manuals. Heat for price.

Are you sure? I thought it was a problem with the 1.2 Euro6 generally and there were reports of it in the Panda.



The Up! would be VW's equivalent. This is a city car like the Ka, i10, C1 etc. rather than a bigger supermini like the Fiesta, Polo, Punto etc.

The Panda is a nice car, although I preferred the previous less squircly version of it.

This is a Panda, not a 500, so it doesn't matter.


Like most manufacturers, Fiat uses the same engines across many models, so it very much could have been an issue.

However, it shouldn't be an issue anymore, as the uphill problem only affected cars without ESC (Electronic Stability Control) - and all Fiat's now include this as standard.
My lovely 2011 Fiat Panda does 65 mpg easily, sometimes more, but then I only drive it slowly and on long trips.

Around town I use my bike or motoribike.

Cars are not good for town use.

lol why are u boasting about it? I drive 2500km trips accross europe several times per year in a 13year old Honda with 250k miles on it and trust it everytime! I have a Fiat as well (not panda), lets just say the Fix it again Tomorrow thing is true, I spend on the fiat about 3x more in repairs than for honda/ even tho i drive with it only some 2k km a year in summer...

I know several people will slate this comment as this is a lease deal so 'not relevant', but I just wanted to post this as a comparison to those looking for an alternative, not to start an argument. I appreciate that some people want to pay a monthly amount and think they have nothing to worry about, but anyway just for comparison:

I bought an 04 clio 182 a year ago for £1600
spent on it so far:
correct super fancy alternator £381 (thought it would be covered under the garage warranty but it didn't exist, otherwise would've been way cheaper)
battery £40
genuine renault rear discs + pads £99
front oem+ spec brembo pads £18.34 (bought front discs as well but not needed yet)
oil, oil filter, cabin+air filters, plugs replaced (by me) £100
MOT including fitted o/s/f lower ball joint £80
tax £265
total including car = £2583.34
that's year one costs on me doing about 12000 miles on a car with 82k ish already on the clock and not by any means the best example I could have gotten, it was literally the first one I saw.
Year 2 costs now that I've replaced the main things that can go wrong might include tyres but will be max £400.
The car does 0-60 in under 7 seconds and I get on average 42mpg because I don't drive everywhere like a tool. It has 182hp, climate control, auto headlights with washers, auto wipers, half leather seats, isofix points, many many airbags etc. etc.
My point is that 2 years from buying the car, I'll have paid about the same amount as this deal, but I'll still have a car. I can then sell the car for around the price I bought it for, maybe a few hundred quid less and then I'd have spent half the cost of this deal. And I'm not limited with mileage, or penalised if someone dings me in a carpark, or tied into a contract.

TL;DR research then buy a higher specification older vehicle and you'll pay the same amount but have a better car that you own at the end.

I don't doubt the 30mpg myself. I hired one of these to get from Gatwick to Bournemouth and it needed about £13 worth of fuel for the journey. Not only that but I found it to be a horrible drive. In comparison, the same journey in a Hyundai i10 needed around £9 of fuel and in an Astra 2.0 diesel only around £7, before anybody says I have a lead foot

Your argument is fine and I'm in a similar boat. I pootle about in a 53 Audi A6 which I've had for 3 years now and which even if I gave it away tomorrow would have only cost me about the same per month as this Panda.

But.

I do get fed up of having to fix all the little things that go wrong with cars as they age;
it is starting to look tired no matter how much elbow grease I put into cleaning it; and
I am painfully aware that a big repair bill might be just around the corner (like the £600 steering sensor repair on the wife's old Saab last year).

I do mainly town mileage and probably less than 5k a year (all my work mileage is in hire cars) so whilst my Audi might well be far nicer than this Panda (I have a cassette deck for a start (_;)) I am really drawn to a lease deal like this or the VW Polo that was on recently.

The point is neither approach is right or wrong, it's horses for courses and if your Clio puts a smile on both your face and your wallet then good on you.
Do the pedals come with this model?

I bought a 54 late Focus, new in 2004. Over 10 years of ownership, including maintenance and depreciation.
It cost me £200, roughly a month. Which is lease car money but a new car every 2-3 years.

In your example, buying an 11 year old pocket rocket is either very brave or very foolish. Yes bangernomics are cheaper than lease deals. However, you have a modicum of mechanical knowledge, which helps keep costs down. The average car driver would languish in the hands of dealers pricing their car, due to repairs, off the road.

I think the main issue is that you estimate year 2 repairs to be £400 max on the basis you've repaired the main things. Fine, unless the cam belt snaps, or your exhaust comes off etc.
Don't think I'm knocking your theory. I'm of the opinion that the less you spend on a car the less you have to loose. In the past I've bought cars for £500 with a years tax and mot and used them with the intention of throwing them away after a year, anything more than 6 months to a year is a bonus and any issues I could walk away from it, knowing the max I'd loose is a few hundred pounds loss after the scrap value.
The point with lease cars is that it's for people who like new cars and would otherwise be buying a new car every 2 - 3 years. On that basis, you can't fault them and leases are getting cheaper and cheaper to the point that a 2 year lease makes financial sense as the lease is less than the depreciation would be.
But, I'm with you. Having had a new car in the past and not feeling the need for new, I happily run around in people's cast offs.

You might be lucky to get close to what you paid for your car if you got it for a good price anyway, but in a years time your Clio will be 14 years old and realistically £1200-1300. It's a VED band J, mpg will have come a fair way for newer models (my Golf 7R is officially 40mpg (combined) and the Clio is 34mpg). A current Clio Renaultsport 200 is officially 48mpg combined, so a realistic 40mpg if you're not driving like a complete tit. The older model will cost 25% more to fuel, will cost more in VED, more to insure, be less refined, less well equipped as standard and you've no guarantees nothing is going to fail in your second year of ownership. That 12 year old Clio is costing you more than you think. You must be driving it like a nun or/and have a long commute to be getting 42mpg.

Buying a car that old, only takes one big thing to fail and the car is beyond economic repair.

Lease = fixed price motoring in a new car (unless you're clumsy or a victim of vandalism that needs remedial work before you give it back).

While that sounds fantastic, there are a few things that dont add up. The costs you describe are far less than what a dealer would charge. Most people dont have the skills or time to fit these things themselves. So they go to a dealership, franchised or otherwise. Hourly labour ranging from £50 ph to £120 ph. Add those costs on top of the parts costs and they begin to add up rapidly. For example I replaced the front wishbones on my 13 year old banger. OEM spec wishbones were £80. Labour cost was £300. Cam belt replaced last year £360 in total. Then factor in the inconvenience of hanging about, carless, whilst having these things done. Especially if you work a full time job. I love my 13 yr old banger with a lazy V6 and lots of creature comforts. But I am getting fed up of the constant maintenance and subsequent time off the road. At £95 pm or £3 per day, this seems a decent solution & I do spend a lot more on coffee on a daily basis.
