It's no 156
Don’t you mean “Their’s people....” ?
Part of owning an Alfa lmao
Yes, but it's all pretty much rumours and artists guessing what it will look like. The 600bhp version will probably be at Quadrifoglio prices levels...
Mind you, the photos are from the offered version (1) but from the next model up (2). The basic model is a bit too spartan, missing mainly Bluetooth and a/c. Otherwise, it's a reliable and well put together city runabout. It feels a lot more solid (and actually nice to drive and sit in) that the Czech triplets (C1, 108, Aygo) which in comparison feel like something you'd find in a Happy Meal.
At first I thought it's finance deal to buy and own this car..
Edit - Car is £8233 to purchase here http://www.broker4cars.co.uk/kia/new-kia-picanto.htm 2016 cars are around £5k, so you'd save about £1500 buying outright which ties in with the 30% cost of p11d target for a 3 year lease deal.
I'm all for leasing, but its a £9600 p11d car even before looking at brokers, and this deal is 48% of p11d. A good deal for 3 years would be 30%. Awful deal imo, needs to be around £3000 or under in total cost over the 3 years to be decent
I ran the numbers for a previous e-golf thread, so probably worth copying here in case anyone is interested (the link formatting didn't copy so let me know if you want any of the source links): The e-golf gets approximately 4 miles per kWh. Each kWh costs 5p if charged off-peak (4 hours each night) on an Octopus EV tariff. So the e-golf would cost approximately 1.25p per mile to run. The average petrol/diesel car costs approximately 12p-15p per mile in fuel according to gov.uk figures. So you save approximately 12p per mile, or to put it another way: you save approximately £1000 per 8,000 miles that you drive when compared with an average petrol/diesel engine car.
This guy drove his Zoe from London to Croatia and back for his family holiday. He seemed to have managed perfectly fine. https://twitter.com/teapot56/status/1162508204217110533
Do you need car allowance from the company to get this deal?
These look dire! I see one the other day and the colour was errr UNDERCOAT! What is all that about!
Same dilema. ID and loads of EVs out next year. Prob only want a 12month leave. EGolf will drop in price tho as being replaced. Hmmmmm
Had a hire one of these last weekend, because they didn't have the car I wanted. Pointless thing, can't fit anything long in it because of the hard barrier between back and front storage areas, and parking in London is pretty much impossible. Horses for courses I guess though.
Seems to me, to be a good deal for a double cab.
Absolutely, and because they're a bit bigger, they can just about cover the zig-zag lines outside schools and at traffic lights. Perfect!
Yeah judging by the way I see most of them driven round my here I presume it's a feature of the design that you have to drive them always as fast as possible with absolutely no regard for the Highway Code, or other road users. I would expect most will have a bit more "wear and tear" than the average vehicle after two years.
Great for dropping the kids off at school and nipping into town for a bit of shopping.
So true. More and more cars on the road these days. Would rather go for comfort and functionality.
You’re welcome. You only need a family member to work for one of those organisations. They can pass the discount to you.
You're welcome and you're also right, it is the correct terminology. I've never heard of anyone who toe and heels (lol) that being said your use of commas and full stops is none existent, so I'm not surprised you got it the wrong way round.
(lol) (lol) (lol) Thanks for the correct terminology mr professional but if u didnt no and i dont think u do otherwise u wouldnt have made such a (poo) (horror) comment is that as human-being we are all different and what might work for others will not always work for u8) e.g i prefer to toe and heel as it works better for me and there are other professional racing drivers that i go on track days with with that dont do neaither as there feet are to wind and they only use there toes (lol) ;) but hey if heel and toe works for u then thats great but just cause someone does it differently does make it wrong as long as it gets the job done (y)
lol i think the pedal looked and felt great in my opinion especially the aluminium ones i had in my Abarth with logo on them. I agree with you the 595 is for a certain type of driver and i used mine as a go kart for town driving :D then for tack days id pick one of my 5 toys to take. i found the Abarth easy to heel and toe etc so i just used it to practice on when ever i could. if memory serves me right there was quite a few F1 drivers that owned an Abarth.
Is the MG ZS (petrol) that bad? They give 7x warranty...
My wife also took delivery of one of these 3 weeks ago for local school runs and shopping etc - absolutely fantastic deal for a large family car, does everything you'd want for a brilliant price
Test driven this car today. An absolute great car to lease at such low price. Not sure to buy it as would not hold much value.
Got a 1.4 turbo zafira tourer, it is a great car. Moves a lot quicker than the 1.6 Toyota auris we had before.
In 17 years of driving I have never exceeded 8,000miles a year. The reason - I have a company van without personal use so the car only moves to go shopping/gym etc on an evening and maybe a couple of trips out on the weekend and occasional trip to the coast etc... I still need a car but I don't need a large mileage allowance. At the moment me and my wife are sharing a car while she is on maternity leave, it gets used every day for nursery drops, doctors appointments, kids classes, shopping, trips to the grandparents 100mile away, in the last 12 months we did 6,200mile. Personal circumstance is a strange beast.
I get mine on Monday
Has anyone who ordered through Jet taken delivery yet? I'm still waiting. They said they're expecting the cars to arrive at the dealership this week and then it'll be another couple of weeks to sort the finance paperwork. Seems a bit backward. My last two leases had everything signed at the start so that as soon as the car arrived with the dealer it was good to be delivered to me straight away.
Oh that's clever.
I'd one of these on a previous deal and found it to be a very good car to drive.The Elite Nav is a decent spec with some nice touches.
I’m configuring to the same terms as the deal above but it’s coming up £188 per month and £195 fee. Has the price changed or have I got it wrong ?
I couldn't believe it either so just did a Google on the R1. GSXR1000 is a but more reserved with 143. Same as my Mazda 6 lol. Maybe they work it out differently on bikes. Surprising your cbr600 has the same bhp as my 1992 model
I have a 2011 cbr 600 that puts out 100hp and its plenty fast enough for me. 180hp would be scary!
That would be a small motorcycle by today's standards. My 27 year old honda cbr600 puts out 100bhp from its little 599cc engine. Big bikes today are pushing out 180bhp. Perhaps vauxhall should have a word with Yamaha and out their R1 engine in it or at least their 1.4 turbo engine they stick in the Mokka. Perhaps they do.
83 BHP is fine.......... in a motorcycle!
Do these things come as standard with a complimentary pair of matching wolf fleece jackets?
Where have the last 20 months gone! (shock) - The Mokka has proven to be a fantastic car over the period I’ve had it. Literally zero issues, not one.....and still drives like the day I received it. Been looking around for other mini SUV autos in the mid £5k price range, and the only thing that comes even close on price is the more expensive 1.0 Skoda Kamiq base model at £5,780, with the SEL model coming in at over £6k This really should’ve been a hot deal when I first posted it! 8)
Ditched the CLK and the new Mokka turns up Monday week. Have test driven another one and it’s absolutely fine. Clearly no pleasing some people
Boot is bigger than a fiesta. Bear in mind the Mokka is based on the corsa platform so you may as well say that for any small car.
Each to their own. I test drove one around 3 years ago and thought it was fine, so have no reason to think that the drive has suddenly got worse since then. Also people say it drinks petrol but I’m coming from a 2003 Mercedes CLK55 which averaged 16mpg, so anything I get in will be a vast improvement on fuel economy!
I’ve done 11600 too I was told that if my mileage was still low the price would be more expensive to buy than if I had done the full 16000! Soo they want more profit from me if I buy....... or re rent for £192 for a year .........no idea what to do decisions decisions! They certainly don’t want to give you a deal by buying it through them........I may follow it to the auction.........
I can’t comment on the maintenance as I never took. I really like the car and no issues so far. My daily travel is 20 miles and average about 33-34 so it’s pretty thirsty. TBF when you put your foot down it goes for it. For the money don’t think you could find anything close to this spec. I pay £166 for 10k over 3 years.
I’m just signing the deal for 500 upfront and £177 a month for 8k miles - 3 years. Is it worth spending £17 a month for maintenance? How has has the car been ? Is it really thirsty
I have the same car, leather heated, seats, 8inch touch screen with Nav and DAB, heated steering wheel but no light in the glove box or no parking sensors..... Crazy! Happy with it though
I have had one of these since November. It is huge fun to drive but is quite basic for a high spec car missing parking sensors or reverse camera. Only issues so far are creaking suspension since 250 miles that Vauxhall can't identify or fix. If leasing like me beware beacuse the paint is so soft scratches and chips are very easy to pick up. I am not looking forward to the body shop cost to get it fixed before it goes back after 3 years. The acceleration and handling is so entertaining that I forgive all of the cars niggles.
I'm waiting for confirmation, but believe it has to be within January.
Anyone got any quotes for the first year service yet?
Black looks great with the tints, did you also get the black interior? I called Volvo assist to make sure the car is registered and changed the address (breakdown\home start) to my name as it had the lease company and could see that being a circus if I ever had to call them.
Black is nice when clean and loving the look
It is. This is definately a lot more luxurious than the Passat (which itself wasn't bad).
Rediculous. Can you ask them to cough up for a full valet? Did it get driven down?
This is incorrect, the DSG is only available on the 115 SE Tech, you can't have a manual for that engine/spec combo - if you want the 115 with a manual box you will either have to go up or down the range.
Thanks for your comments @me_lee and @Koma.Toes , I followed your advice and overcame feeling cheeky for test driving a car from a local dealer when I'm not buying/leasing from them. Took the car for a drive and really loved it, however my daily commute elapses hilly and sinuous Devon&Cornwall roads and I felt that the car was a little bit needy uphill... nothing major but just enough not to feel comfortable driving it. My local dealer also told me that they'll match this offer, so as soon as I see something slightly more powerful I'll go for it. :)
tumbleweed. Perhaps someone who doesn't understand leasing?
No, that's not quite correct. The manual is available for all engines (from 95 upwards and including the 115) whereas the DSG is only available from 115 upwards. Can't see why anyone would get the 95 when the 115 barely costs any more, gets to 62 1.4 seconds faster and has more torque as well as almost identical emissions and fuel consumption.
There is also the DSG option which I believe is 115bhp rather than the 95bhp engine on the manual version.
To be fair I would have gone with the maintenance option. Ive had a Astra elite 1.4t through jet since sept 2016. I have had nothing but problems with it Electronic park brake failed the day it got delivered. Intermittent radio problems, where it crackles and when u use the indicators u cant hear the sound the indicator gives off. Worst of all ESC fault where it goes into limp mode while driving reduce power and reduced steering assist. First time it went in I had to pay out of my own pocket £10 per day for a replacement corsa the dealer put me in. they had it for over a week and couldn't recreate the fault asked me to take it back and monitor it.. this June gone has been faulting so much and randomly loosing power while driving. It was getting dangerous. Took it back to Vauxhall and been there over 3 weeks now. They created a technical case with Vauxhall and they agreed to put me in a hire vehicle at Vauxhalls cost. The test the car daily sometimes faults and sometimes doesn't but Vauxhall seem to be out of there depth with fixing the car I have told the lease company I don't want the car if Vauxhall can't fix it. I am not going to risk mine and my family's safety driving a death trap.. will never have a Vauxhall again.
This is a great deal at £4k for a car with most of the bells and whistles. Excess mileage fee is 7.21p making it a great deal to go for the 5k miles initially. I went for the Elite Nav and just ordered through Jet. It includes the 8" touchscreen (vs 7" touchscreen), coloured display on instrument cluster, shark fin antenna and upgraded steering wheel. Only £6 extra per month. The free metallics are a bit poor. I thought black looked old, maybe because of the bumper plastic. Don't know. I liked white best but it's a cost option. Chose Cosmic Grey. Hoping I get this before 1 April where the cost will go up by £20/month after the tax change. I want to sneak in a 17 plate before then!
Doubt it. Reading the forums, Vauxhall says "it's just one of those things". Not accepting blame... Not surprised!
Here fishy fishy :-)
The points he mentions are nothing to do with maintenance but are warranty issues, all of which can be rectified whether you buy outright, lease via PCH or PCP with or without maintenance.
What colour you go for mate? Gonna order on weekend myself i think
Hot! Picked the Elite Nav model in June on a lease after selling my 2005 320d and love it. yes it's a vauxhall but it's a great car to drive with lots of technology for the price. what other car this price has its own wifi zone!
Cheapest i can get this offer for is 4454.04. Closest i can get to the deal price here.
definite a copper
Is that a Vauxhall cheese sandwich VXR ?
Ok that's great
You'll want to delay the first service by a couple of weeks (check with Vauxhall what their tolerance is) then you won't need to do the second service before it goes back. Everyone that leases does this at it saves them a couple hundred quid
I don't know whether to contact jet to ask about the second service and whether it will need doing before car goes back
They are in business as far as I know mate. Someone I know is having an Astra delivered next week so I assume they are. Them not answering the phone is a little concerning though!
I've been trying to get a hold of Jet Vehicle Finance but they're not picking up. Any idea if they're still in business mate?
