sorry wrong name this is the studio style and zetec listed on same page
Cold, the Studio is £7678 @ drivethedeal.com
The Studio is only £7678 if you take out finance. Cash price is £8028. Look at the small print below

"""The quoted prices include a £350 discount which is conditional upon you taking out finance arranged by the dealer and having a test drive at the dealer who is nominated by us to supply your new car. If you do not wish to visit the dealer to have the test drive then you will still be eligible for £250 of this money. If you do not wish to take out this finance at all then you will need to add £350 to the prices that we quote online."""

Well said my friend, I was surprised to find only 6 comments on a car deal.

Why do people buy new cars like this?

The amount of money you lose in the first 3 years is insane, why not buy an 08-09 plate that's been looked after or used as a lease car etc?

If you can afford to blow that chunk of cash for the first 3 years, then why buy a Ford Fiesta...

Although, this is a decent price. Friend paid 7.5k for a 2009 (58 plate) Fiesta in February.
I would rather spend it on a tidy 10 year old Lancer evo FQ300 which is what i did lol
It's cheap because nobody in their right mind would fork out for a brand new car without A/C, especially in the middle of a heatwave.

To answer your question. Some people like a new car, they like the warranty and if people didn't buy new then people like you couldn't get good secondhand buys.

Pardon,, have I missed something, the temps hardly warrant such an excessive term
Why sell after 3 years ?,I bought a new car once intended keeping it 10 years ,but crashed it after 8 years.

You've answered your own question. If the deal is so cheap that it's still worth £7k in 2+ years then you've lost nothing.

The amount you lose in VAT as you drive away from the forecourt is like, erm, a fifth of the cost of the car.

Madness.
new car:
-you know the price average, and you can get it for 20% less than dealerships from websites like drivethedeal.
-3 year warranty as standard, but with manufacturers servicing increases to 8 years warranty in total (VW do this)
-no costs for parts for lifetime of vehicle due to above point
-no tax (low emission cars)
-high mpg
-1 years free insurance for most new cars, some offer 3 years
-you can buy it on lease, so you have a gauranteed sale price in future.
-you know its history, you know how its been driven, you know whether its had repairs or patchup work, you know how much its been looked after.

2nd car after 3 years:
-no warranty
-no honesty
-could be thrashed around but if mileage is low then you might not care but you should, and short distance driving wears engines more so the low mileage is deceiving!
-most likely its been buffed up to look newish, in a few weeks time it will look like junk again.
-Tax
-poor mpg
-lower depecriation but factor in higher maintenance costs (compared to upto 8 years warranty!)
-likely you will get ripped off and you wont know until months after!
-unless you find some old person who is selling their car / auctions of disabled peoples cars
-THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BARGAIN FOR 2ND HAND CARS

I'm not going to sell my new car anytime soon, unless i get the high resale value VW's get (after 3 years that 5 year warranty looks very good on my vw). Those that thing New car buyers are insane, well i havent regretted it yet and will most likely only buy new cars in the future! 8 years warranty cant go wrong?!

Hi, If you take the finance it's a 24 month/12k miles deal....Works out at £29.42 per week then hand the car back + 6 months road tax thrown in. Sounds good to me !

not really a 5th is it. You will lose a 5th over 1 or 2 years.
And you will lose a 5th in 2 years from a second hand car.
I have never bought a car brand new before but want a fiesta. I could buy a car a year old for £1000 less. but then I think, Maybe I want a snot free car that I know hasn't been ragged about for a little bit more.

Your rule applies to 98% of all cars but not the fiesta. It holds its value so well.
And if you are going to comment. back it up with evidence. if you think it will lose a 5th of its value after driving off the forecourt you show me a fiesta less than 3 months old in exc cond with that kind of loss

Jellybean, it sounds like your happy with buying new, which is fine, but dont try to justify it by listing a complete load of **** list of cons for buying second hand. You sound like an idiot.
What's wrong with the price. I get paid 40p a mile from my work and I have a 57 reg focus that's bulletproof reliability. Just under 200k on the clock and it only cost me 8 k 3 years old when I got it with 50k on the clock. Who's laughing now Audi drivers loosing all that money
The 1.25 82ps engine is an absolute cracker. Low insurance, great 'real world' mpg and the Fiesta handles well and it screwed together properly. 100% satisfied with ours. Would go for the Zetec spec though.

Not in every case. If the dealer is using the Margin Scheme, VAT is only paid on the profit made:

only dumb people buy new cars
Do these come unlocked ?

only dumb people buy new cars



..or people who have expendable income to quite happily afford a new car every year.

How about "only poor people buy second hand cars"

My comment could be construed to be as stupid as yours, but we all know your comment had far less thought go into it than mine.

The point being that VAT is applicable on more or less any purchase nowadays , if your happy to pay the cost then you pay the VAT cost , it isn't a loss as soon as you drive through the door.

But who plans to sell a car that soon?
If you get a really good deal on a new car it can be very close to the cost of buying a two year old one but you still get the full warranty, choice of colour and so on.

My current car cost £12.5k instead of 17 when I bought it. More than a year later I could have sold it for as much as I paid.
I think is a good deal you don't lose much within a year, however studio spec is dead basic! Even the windows is wind down not electric, that is one proverty spec. I was browsing through some used fiesta used car. The price is rediculous! At the end I get myself a mid spec 2 years old polo with low mileage from dealership.

No, the point is, it is an instant loss (unlike other depreciation on a car; such as after three years, or after 10, 20, or 30,000 miles travelled.)

If you went back to the dealer 60 seconds after you drove the car off the forecourt it would be worth 20% less than it was before you got in.

That is not true in a majority of other cases when selling pre-owned goods.

That is the point we were getting to. If you don't have to have a new car, buying one that is a few months old means you save a heap of cash.

I've never understood how it is thought that you lose the VAT when you drive a car off the forecourt as used prices are based on the new cost which includes VAT.

Based on the ex-VAT price so that the profit margin can be calculated (as well as many other factors; some of which have already been mentioned but, in addition, colour, specification, time of the year, day of the month/quarter due to sales targets, amount of similar style/type of vehicle already on the dealer's books, and so on).

Always funny seeing people say I'd never buy new. I sold cars for over 5 years. The profit made in a new car for a dealer is around £200 ish. Yeah u lose VAT but if u intend on keeping it 3 years so what ur covered for warranty and no MOT 's etc. used cars mmmmm price on screen might be £7995 and the normal profit made on a used car ??? £1000. So ur paying the dealer ALOT more. Oh and another thing just cause you buy a used car does not mean its VAT exempt. There are plenty of used cars ( generally a few months old ) that are subject to VAT. It also comes down to how your funding the car. If buying cash then in some cases used are better if your getting a year old or older. But if your looking at a few months old and financing then because of APR's been lower and things like deposit allowances the the new wins hands down
