Not a lease - a cash deal!

Hyundai i30 SE 1.6 Diesel Bluedrive, including various metallic/pearlescent paint options (usually £500 or so), and 3 years free servicing for over £8000 off of RRP.

There is an automatic version available too, which is more expensive but a bigger saving.

There are PCP options available should that be your preference. We did a PCP over 4 years, with £250 deposit and £1500 part-ex, with 8000 miles p/a (Adding more doesn't bump the price up much) for £129 p/m which isn't at all bad for a car this size.

The car is also VED-free. 5 years warranty, and as I said already 3 years free servicing.

Air Conditioning, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Stop/Start, Variable steering, parking sensors (rear) leather steering wheel with controls, excellent MPG, pretty nippy, suprisingly spacious inside. We picked ours up yesterday (in black) and I'm very impressed with it.

The dealer is Rockar who are primarily online and have a showroom in Bluewater shopping centre. Collection is free, but I think there are driven deliverty options for a price. This is the second car I've bought from them this year and I think they are a really superb dealer.

I think it's for cars bought until the end of September.

To clarify a couple of points from questions in the thread:

If you pay cash, there is no annual limit or anything because you bought it outright. The annual mileage and deposit etc is only relevant if you do take their PCP (provided by Hyundai Finance). Sorry if I didn't make that clear. I did mine my PCP but you can pay cash and drive away (And probably sell it at a profit!)

The part-ex works by you entering the details on their website and they give you a valuation. You can adjust for the condition and mileage etc. I did email them to clarify a couple of points on my own part-ex. The car is then assessed on collection (not a we buy any car.com type assesement where they knock you down on every little speck of dust). For me personally the £1500 part-ex was what they gave me. WBAC.com said £1600 then knocked down to £700 when I went there (thought I'd give it a go). Rockar did not knock it down at all and agreed with the condition I'd selected.

Also these are brand new and NOT pre-reg.

We got ours in black and the lead time was only 7 days, but other colours were longer, and I can't guarantee that the 7 days for black will remain.

I'm not sure if the servicing is provided by Rockar specifically or by Hyundai. I suspect Rockar but someone would need to ask them (I'm not going to). If you are not close to Bluewater that could be a problem. For me it's not an issue.

Rockar are a great dealer. No pushy smarmy salesmen. Just nice, friendly "Rockar Angels". It's a nice refreshing way to buy a car in my opinion.

all those people who took the lease deal last week must be a little upset now...
this looks hot. never heard of the company though, and would like to trade my car against this. how does the whole process work and where?
I like the stop/start bit, really useful for saving money/safety ...........or should it be start / stop?
Surprised at this. Not only is it a stunning price, but you normally find that these deals are on under powered models. This though has decent power and a lot of torque. You should have no problem seeing 60mpg and road tax is free.

So this isn't a lease deal? and you own it at the end?
Rubbish - it's not a Skoda
Is your servicing with rockar or hyundai?

You own it at the start, by paying upfront.

​lol the PCP part threw me a little.
Lump sum at the end?
How long did it take for your car to be available after you ordered? Thnx

I'd like to know this too. If it's with Rockar, you'll need to take your car to Bluewater for servicing which could be quite a trek!
BOOM !!!

Break out the oven gloves.

Three cheers for good old Neil !

the old skoda's and forest go together mate :-P

outstanding deal for the car OP. with the 3 years servicing thrown in and 5 year warranty standard for Hyundai's it's even better.

shame it doesn't have dab radio though which is standard on almost all competitors.

edit: is the servicing definitely inc? it's showing as an option when I look at it.....

This^

I don't mind travelling down the initial time for collection but I don't want to have to go to bluewater everytime for a service from loughborough!
Warranty a must of the Hyundai, build quality is atrocious.
Had the i10, i20 and this one, all have developed mechanical faults such as locking issues, replacement dashboards, suspension issues, throughout the warranty period.

Don't get me wrong, they are cheap, great to drive, but expect several long visits to the garage along the way. The Hyundai dealers often deny there is a problem, so have a camera phone on standby to show them (with a manager present), it's the only way they get things done

I'm always amused that people who have problems with a particular make of car then go on to buy again...once bitten twice shy...3 times shy in your case...you must have found something you liked.

servicing can be done at any Hyundai dealer, you may also be able to get your local dealer to match this but they may just turn you down straight away
Don't buy a diesel car unless you do the mileage. 15,000 a year otherwise don't bother. A diesel costs more to run and repair, and there's still the possibility of more expensive repairs.

Exactly, this is a hot deal for some one that does the miles, otherwise it's going to cost them more in the long run quite possibly.

I've had three Hyundai's and not a single problem in six years
You have to be on your best behaviour if you see a new hyundai behind you. about 80% of the time it's police.

JD Power & Associates say Hyundai cars are good for reliability.
Wow - seriously tempted by this as a 2nd car for the household. Great spec and saving.

Although the 3 year free service plan can only be done at their Dartford centre, I would have thought?

How do you explain use of diesel taxis in cities? It seems that the deciding factor is cost above health, “In the last 15 years we’ve seen dieselisation of the car fleet, switching from under 10 percent of the market to more than half,” Matthew Pencharz, the mayor of London's senior environment advisor, told us in May this year. “But diesel has exacerbated greatly the air quality problem in London.” from telegraph.co.uk/mot…tml

Got an i30 petrol; its ok - preferred to Ford Focus because its more spacious/cheaper/longer warranty. Downsides - front seat backs uncomfortable; noisy tyres; floaty feeling over bumps when breaking. I've also decided I don't like how it looks. Prefer Kia styling. Hot deal though for diesel!

Ok so the OP said they put £250 deposit, £1500 for exchange and are paying £129 p/m for 4 years, this totals to £7942 which seems way off the near £11k price.

Has there been a typo and really put up £2.5k deposit or more?

Do remember stop-start tech does have an impact on engine and drivetrain longevity, but this won't be an issue if you return the car at the end of the lease period.autocar.co.uk/car…ine

Also there's an annual mileage limit, this is a hire purchase with a final lump payment at the end required to own the vehicle if so. Wouldn't be a mileage limit if a standard purchase.

Still a good deal but this needs to be clarified

They will ether be pre DPF models, or newer models and the driver may have removed the DPF.

The DPF needs to get above a certain RPM range and hold it above there for the regeneration to take place, failure for the regeneration to take place blocks the DPF with soot and at the same time diesel can get into the sump and raise the oil level to dangerous levels then next thing you know you have a runaway diesel.

Do some reading up about DPF's if your still curious about using diesels for short journeys/ in the city.

That's a good question. I don't actually know. For me it's not a problem, I'm happy to drive down there on a weekend, drop the car off, do a bit of shopping and have a bit of lunch and then get it back.

taxi drivers driving all day or night long. so they do millage. most of taxi drivers removing dpf filters or driving old diesel car without dpf. so they don't have to think about dpf change for £1000 or more.
had an i30 CRDi for around 3 years now (from new), never had any kind of problem, great cars
be sorry to see it go when we upgrade next month

that's a bit of a steal of a price that is

Sorry for being unclear. We did it as a PCP with a £4000 something (not sure on the exact figure offhand) final payment. You can, however, just buy it outright where there will of course be no mileage limits or anything. I've edited the original post to hopefully make it more clear.
Is this offer still available - I can no longer find it on th website
