Agreed roughly £2K loss (depending on which car) for a used car, so £2500 + NO CAR in the end is what you pay for driving a NEW CAR ?



​your convieniently forgetting car tax (150) mot(50), consumables like tyre(200), breakdown cover(50) repairs(250), mpg will be better in a new car (100) and lower insurance as new cars are safer (50) - so approx £850 per year to add on.
I went from a y reg volvo that cost £207 pm over 1 year to a brand new car that cost me so far £227 pm

Is maintainance worth for these leases?

Is maintainance worth for these leases?



Depends on how long you lease imo. I lease 15k a year for 2 years...So basically a set of tyres and one oil service on my car...so i decided not to get maintenance .If longer then it starts to make sense or if a car that needs more regular services

​No chance. £374 for a service is mental. No reason why after 16000 miles after 2 years that you need tires or brakes and any breakdown or issues are under warranty. So no i wouldn't bother

Agree on 2 year but if you are doing 2 years at 15k or 3 years on 10k for extra 30 a month it likely starts to make sense.....Eg set of tyres and 2 services probably be close to 1000 on one of these

​what do you have if u don't mind me asking? I'm interested in a 2 year least with around 15000 miles
think it's actually 23 x £145.19 as first month is in deposit
Even with a 3+35 its only £164pcm.

You need to specify in the title it's a personal lease, no extra VAT to add.

Seems like a decent deal and even has metallic paint included.

Only downside is the lack of power in the Renault engine, 0-60 in 12 seconds or 0-60 eventually!

It could be because it's a "famous" Renault 1.5dCi engine, where you need to replace crankshaft bearings with every oil change to avoid engine damage.

While other drivers usually search for holiday targets or at least low fuel prices, happy 1.5dCi owners reading or watching on youtube "1.5dCi engine complete rebuild"

Interesting to know as I have one and it could do with an oil change soon. Never had any issues with mine at all, unlike my previous Octavia that had its conrod make holes in the engine casing.

Agreed. Overall cost is just £4408.51.
Why does the monthly cost increase the longer you lease the vehicle, surely as it gets older it gets a poorer deal in terms that the car gets worn down? I must be missing a trick here?:|

​apologies yes that seems strange
you can also go with a 3 months initial payment and work out total £4570.38
yes it about £30ish more over the 2 years but this is good for those who don't want to pay that much upfront.

​It controls over supply at manufacturer - and they can also still sell them on franchise forecourts with manufacturer warranty for top dollar after 2 years.

Check total cost of maintenance against cost of replacing tyres as that is the main thing that will need to be replaced at your cost if you don't have maintenance along with manufacturer service costs

Worth noting that BRVLA guidelines state they should be same class tyres so if you have very good bridgestone tyres on at the start of lease with ratings of B/B for wet performance & fuel economy then the car will need to be returned with B/B tyres

So don't look up tyres with rating of E/E as a comparison of cost. I'm coming to the end of a 3yr lease and have had to replace the front tyres once but they cost ~£100 each so that is £200 out of my pocket.

Add in the annual service (service intervals dependant on manufacturer + mileage) costs which you also have to pay for yourself and it can soon add up.

When my lease goes back in June i will have had to pay for 2 minor services + a major service. Add in the 2 new tyres and i will have spent ~£700.

Some people will need more regular services depending on mileage and could possibly need all 4 tyres replaced during the lease so it may be worth paying for maintenance if that's the case

You aren't confused, you know exactly what the deal is (as you've illustrated it above), it's just not for you. This is a perfectly reasonable position to adopt, but not everyone feels the same.

Leasing usually makes financial sense if you are the type who likes a new car every 2 years due to depreciation, the hidden cost of motoring that few people take into account when owning a car.

Are you comparing a new car to a eight year old car for £2k?

Think about it from a different perspective. If I wanted to buy this car outright with cash, I would need to fork out around £18k (with discount). The residual value of this car after two years and 20k miles is £11.9k. So in theory, you have lost £7k merely on depreciation. Plus you avoid the hassle of MOTs and long-term maintenance issues that diesels bring.

If you buy a brand new car for say £20000, after 2 years the depreciation in value will be significant.

According to theAA "A new car loses value as soon as you drive off the forecourt and by the end of the first year will have lost around 40% of its value. This varies a lot though and the best may lose as little as 10%."

So a Infiniti Q30 which starts at £20,550 (according to manufacturer website) at best would lose 10% (£2055) and possibly as high as 40% (£8,220) and this is just in the first year

An older car depreciates less but typically is more expensive to maintain. I've had an XC90 from new and although depreciation is now minimal after losing nearly all its value in 12 years, it's been costing me around £1500 a year in maintenance for the last three years. Having covered 160,000 miles, many parts of the vehicle are simply wearing out. These problems don't exist in new vehicles still under warranty so there's a genuine saving to be had there versus an old banger like mine before you even take into account savings from vastly improved mpg.

A new set of tyres should last 20k miles from new. This deal is for 16k miles.

Most lease firms include breakdown cover for 'free' - i.e. part of the monthly payment.

Depends how you want to do your motoring, if you wish to own a brand new car with all the latest benefits etc. - you lose roughly 20% the minute you drive out of the showroom. If you lease yes it costs you £X over the period but no depreciation to factor in. As a true life example I lease a Citroen C4 (no not everyones cup of tea I admit!) to have bought it new 18 months ago the list price was £17999 (appreciate could have got for a little less), to buy the exact same vehicle today is approx. £8500 on a well know car website so over that period if I had bought it would have cost me over £8,000 in depreciation versus the £3,000 to lease.

Most car manufacturers include breakdown cover for free on new cars, as well as cars serviced by them. As for tyres lasting 20k miles, there are so many variables that 20k is something to aim for, not any guarantee. The sort of roads you drive on, how you drive the car, how heavily loaded the car is, what speeds you drive at, tyre pressures. Even the outside temperature all affect wear rates.
Its back. My dad may be interested haha
Given the interest in these 'lease deals' lately, I'm wondering what other costs are incurred at the end of the lease period...people have talked about costs of tyres, servicing but what about those nasty little dinks to bodywork (stones, people with 'wide swinging' car doors)...I assume that adds a bit to the cost to get them repaired? Or is there an option for 'general maintenance' that kinda covers these problems?

​There will be general wear and tear allowed e.g a few stone chips, marks on body work, alloys. Take it back with big dents on every panel then you will pay handsomely for the pleasure
im looking at leasing as a option for my new car. looking for a reasonable family car under 200 a month with 10000 - 12000 miles per year. can someone explain the risks of leasing? or offer any advice

The tyres fitted to a brand new vehicle are likely to last much longer than subsequent sets. A new car sits tight and straight on the road, maximising tyre life. The tyres are firmly sealed to the rim, so accurate pressures are more reliably maintained. As a car ages, the suspension components wear and cause tyres to wear more rapidly, rims corrode and let air out causing tyre-damaging under inflation. The tyres on my XC90 are lasting much longer since spending a fortune having the front suspension rebuilt a few years back
My previous car (Yeti TDI170 4x4) lost £190 per month in depreciation over the four years that I owned it.
I believe the Yeti is/was good in that respect.
My current lease is costing me £145pm in total, I think I would be prepared to pay up to £225pm to get something in the same class as the Yeti and not having to shell out £22-25k on a new car in one go.
There are some good deals out there if you look hard enough.

I have a 5 series currently which and had a c class before - both on 2 years 15k if you bide your time you see some good deals come up ....be interesting how the new VED affects prices.
Carhireandleassing.com is a good place to browse allows you to put all sorts of optiosn in to search against.....also mportnat that deals like this sometimes get the inevitable "8000 a year - great if you want to go to Tescos once a week"...but sometimes working out the excess mileage is cheaper than specing a 15k contract upfront.
I have a 15k contract my wife has an 8k contract and if we exceed one is 7 p per mile one is 10.7 or similar
Taking it up to 10k miles per year is an extra £12 per month, may be of interest to some who would struggle with 8k

Sometimes I think they have specials to shift some cars and hit their numbers and then they must have option to sell them on at 2 years at a given price - hence they can do a deal - I have seen this quite often
