Ford fiesta st-2 2 years lease 8k miles P/A £4871.71 @ G2L

Found 30th Aug 2014
I was looking at the focus ST deal that was posted recently and came across the fiesta st-2 on a 6+23 plan (1,007.94 + 3,863.77 = 4871.71). With 8k miles per year.

Seems like a good deal to me!

8k a year isn't going to be suitable for many people!

Theres also a £180 admin charge so = £5051.71 in total

Only needs 1 service (half way through) Thats the only additional cost. Tyres and everything else should be fine.

Excess mileage past 8000 miles is 8.65p or something a mile

I went for this deal, its good price

We didn't do our homework re mileage, got a Golf 3 weeks ago on lease, using around a third more already, hoping it will go down once the novelty has worn off.

8,000 is more than enough for me. good deal.

Yes it is

8000 miles would be more than suitable for me Its the missus I have a problem with lol

mjccam

Yes it is



Perhaps. I actually have no idea how many live close to or over 15 miles from work.

Good deal.

G2L usually add extra milage for next to nothing. They added 2k a year for me for 0.20p/month

I think you will find it was 20p a mile, not a month!

8000 miles in London or just City driving is actually substantial

I have this car on lease it's a good drive locally ideal for the wife !!!!

For the average price this distance is fine.

Ta OP.

Nope 20p month. They quoted me an extra 20p month to change the lease from 8k to 10k

Probably cheaper than the depreciation? Heat added

I'm a SAHM, my car is 8 month old, has hardly been used this year and already has over 10,000 miles on the clock, I'd hate to think of my mileage with a commute included.

Seems a good price but unsure on leasing but this seems pretty good considering I am paying £200 a month for my car that is just losing money each month honestly might sell up and get something like this. I also have a TMC box that could give me a bit more power and take off when its lease is up. Now my new job is not using my own car but ambulances will go for this.

that makes no sense at all

I'm pretty new to the world of leasing. I'm tempted by this, how would car insurance work on this? Please can someone advise me, before I contact the company

I think many people don't know how many miles each year they actually do. My other half currently doesn't work but on social travel the miles are racking up. As for me I am doing around 20k a year and that has come down.

Wouldn't it be a better idea to just buy a car on finance (_;)

I don't understand why anyone would do this deal? Surely if it's a case of having a car for 2 years 8k mileage isn't really enough if you're driving every day, and is 16k miles really worth £5k? What am I missing here?

Maybe, just maybe try a little harder to stay at home. Sounds like BS. Heat added.

That would depend.

I have the option at work to get a car on the company car scheme (a "just add fuel" style - no costs except petrol)
The cheapest car would be a Suzuki Alto for £120 p/m for 2yrs, no deposit, 10K miles a yr.
That's a total of £2,880 for the full 2 year period
If you were to do this yourself the car would cost £6,000 new (plus finance interest) and you'd probably be able to trade in at £3,500 (£3,635 on WBAC.com).
After taking into account:
insurance (for me) about £300p/yr = £600
road tax £35 p/yr = £70
dealer servicing £75? = £150
Potentially 2 new front tyres before sale (£50 a piece) = £100

Then you'd end up with a total cost of £3,420 - Marginal? I agree and all depends on the resale price at the end of the 2yrs, but considering all the hassle and "risk" the Co. Car Leasing Scheme option doesn't seem so bad.

TBH, all deals on HUKD are always going to be whether it suits the consumer - it wont work for everyone

I agree. Unless people have a desire for a brand new car the it doesn't work. Far better to buy a used car with this much money. Any case people can choose to spend their Money where they want so not voted.

A used hot hatch for less than £5k is risky business.

I cam see why ppl go for lease deals. If you want a new car on your driveway every 2/3 years, want your road tax paid for, any issues likely to be fixed under warranty, no likely need to replace tyres or other parts (unless you get a puncture etc), no worry about depreciation or resale values after that period and if you were to say spend the money on a second hand car of the same value you'd have to worry about things breaking and if the previous owner(s) had kept it in good condition, looked after it and serviced it properly. But as with anything it all depends on your personal needs and position at the time.
From my point of view I'd probably say that it's worth buying a used car that has heavy depreciation like the VW Phaeton or rep cars like the Mondeo coz you wouldn't pay too much and you'd have the asset even after that 2/3 year period which is a big factor lease haters like to quote on here

what a daft comparison. for starters try a comparable car!!!!!!!!

your just add fuel car is £6000, this car is about £18000!!!

I never understand why people have to feel they own the car, unless you want to mod it or intend to keep it for eg 10 years - even the latter doesn't make sense nowadays

also those resale figures quoted are just that, actually getting the money quoted is another thing entirely - plus you have the hassle of selling the car with numpties who don't turn up, scammers, timewasters, etc

with leasing you still need to pay tax and servicing - service plans are extra

plus with the massive recent increase in the complexity of cars and massive rising cost of repairs, a warranty is an invaluable asset

Do it the same as you would for any other car, but tell the insurance company that you don't own the car and it's a lease. Some companies won't care (I think I used LV), some won't insure you.
You may also want to consider GAP insurance though. If the car's written off in the first year or stolen and not recovered, what the insurance company pay you, may not be what the lease company think it's worth. So you'd have to make up the difference.

Lol, it's a round about way of saying if I don't use my car regularly and has plenty of miles on the clock, 8,000 per year is nothing.

My brother who has commented above has his road tax included in his lease. And yes, you'd need to pay for one and possibly two services, but if you kept your car well you'd pay that either way

Absolutely. You're either staying at home or you're not. Maybe trying walking to Starbucks each day instead of driving there?

SAHM - stay at home mum? Then you don't need one of these clearly as it wont fit in the living room, kitchen or bedroom and certainly drive up the stairs unless you use some kind of winch system. Plus Jeremy Kyle starts at 9.25 and the last thing you want is a fiesta in the way of your TV.

You could buy a couple of decent bikes for this and not be limited to 8,000 miles a year.

Cracking deal, I would definitely struggle with the mileage tho, I would be very tempted by this of I wasn't tied into pcp on my focus

Original Poster

On the fiesta st forum people estimated that this car would be worth 11.5k after 2 years, I'd say because of the low mileage it would be worth around 12.5k which still means you're making a good saving. I have a 14 year old BMW 540i and after owning that the thought of having a warranty not having to deal with M.O.T.s is very appealing

20 mile round trip commute every day * 261 working days = 5220 miles. So you've still got over 200 miles per month for going shopping and other out and about trips. Probably works out enough for some people.

Whether it's worth it or not - good point. Friend of mine has gone through about 4 cars in a year (inc a Mounttuned one of these) as he's a bit of a petrol head. In all honesty I reckon for the mileage he does (and it's probably only about 6k a year) it seems mad paying so much to commute around locally on 30mph and 50mph roads in something this quick. I think the 11.5k resale value in the post above is a tad optimistic given a brand new ST (not ST-2 though) was available through DTD for under 14k, you'd be reliant on selling it privately.
