That's how business works. They will give you the 'incentive' of a discount, masked by a higher interest rate. Why would they give you the discount rate as a cash price? It's the same when they offer you a price for your part-exchange.

Then you don't understand the law. Shops don't have to sell anything to you if they don't want to, regardless of price. Yet deliberately misleading you is criminal. That's the difference.

I hope you've learned something today.

I only buy new on cars I want, if their residuals are so good the price they charge for a new one under achievable discount is similar to what a nearly new one is sold for e.g. If I wanted a Ford (not RS), Renault, Vauxhall, i'd buy an 18 month old one for 1/2 RRP. If I wanted a hot hatch VW Golf/Audi A3 i'd buy new for 12-15% discount rather than a year old one for 80% of RRP.You have every right to cancel a finance agreement within 14 days (it is enshrined in consumer law) - you would still have to pay for the car by other means, cancelling the finance doesn't allow you to just hand the car back within 14 days and say you changed your mind. It is not deception to do this. When you cancel your finance, they work out interest based on the time you took the loan out to the time you requested cancellation and a settlement figure. If you collect the car on finance on Tuesday and request a cancellation on Wednesday on a £12k car that has a £1k manufacturer/dealer deposit contribution (effectively making it £11k finance balance) and it has a 6% APR rate attached to the finance, you pay 1 day's interest at the 6% rate on the balance, which would be somewhere in the region of £1.81. They cannot charge you anything other than interest accrued when you cancel within the cooling off period.Plenty of people do this (who either have the cash to buy the car outright or have a cheaper loan waiting in the wings), it is perfectly legal to do so, and not dishonest. Car salespeople don't like you doing this as they won't get their kickback from the finance agreement if you do it. The car finance companies know the risk of the consumer doing this and know they have every right to do it, but hope you won't.Car companies can make more money from the finance than the car itself, and when 1/3 of the monthly PCP cost can be interest, isn't that a bit much?If you go to settle finance outside the 14 day finance cooling off period, there will be early settlement penalties - usually 2 months penalty interest and perhaps a small (£50-100) agreement closure "option to buy" fee. You would still keep the incentives though.My Golf R didn't come with incentives when I bought it, so no need to go through finance, but if I were buying again now with £2k deposit contribution, i'd do it and pay off outright the next day.I hope you've learned something today.



Not really no. I know you have every right to cancel a financial agreement. What I was referring to was that you are intentionally taking out finance, in order to cancel it, in order to obtain the dealer contribution offered. That is definitely deception - whether you want to wash it as you being smart or abusing the system.

However, to answer your question, because you would be paying more for the car. I don't think any (smart) finance company will allow you to pay off in full (and if they do there would be a charge or the interest rate applied on the loan would be higher just like they are on some mortgages) and/or cancel to take advantage of incentives. That's called deception (at least the latter part).

I know this is a dead post but I thought I'd do a quickie update just in case anyone thinking of buying a Picanto stumbles on this...
Okay, so the car is now 18 months old and has covered just over 10,000 miles. Average fuel economy over that time has been 55.9 mpg (according to the trip computer it's 59.1 mpg but that's too optimistic and doesn't tally with what actually goes in the tank). Nothing has gone wrong with the car. The 1 year service was done without fuss and effectively cost me £33.33 under the three services for £100 deal. Kia didn't try and stiff me for 'extras' like changing the pollen filter which was good. Fully comprehensive insurance for the Picanto is costing me £140 a year (from M&S) and UK recovery and breakdown about £22 (from Start Rescue). There's currently no road tax to pay. So excluding depreciation, the car is costing me roughly 11.5p/mile which is pretty good. Yes the car's looks are a bit strange and yes it really doesn't like going up hills but 97% of the time is sits on the drive doing nothing so who cares?
Overall I'm pleased I opted for the Picanto and am glad I ignored the car magazine reviews which frankly talk a lot of drivel. I've come to the conclusion that Kia are the 'new Toyota' in that they offer sensible cars at sensible prices to sensible customers. So that's a thumbs up from me then!

This post is dead but just in case anyone's interested, after 1,500 miles my Picanto's averaging 57.5 mpg. Not great but not bad either...

Thats the one but it is only that on the Skoda website. It is £8995 everywhere if you actually look or use the search function on here.

It is a dam sight better engine than the 1.0 in this. Comes with a full 3 year warranty, 3 year breakdown. The servicing package is included with the finance and works out better than a personal loan depending how much you need. You will also find that if you have a good credit score you will get the APR much lower (got 5.3% last year on a VRS with the servicing deal and then paid off the finance after a week and still get the servicing.) so would hardly say exorbitant.

You also fail to mention the breakdown cover and much more limited warranty in the OP?

Went for the black did you - I was too tight to pay for paint! I was at the top of my budget though and as there were really boring colours for extra's (black and silver I think), went for the standard white. I know white cars are difficult to keep clean - but in my experience black is similiar and every other car is silver now.

Think you might have got ripped of with the administration pack fee - I never got charged that - what did you get for that?

Managed to get free mats and tank of diesel - I didn't think there was much else to bargain for with scrappage.

The Permashine sounds like an expensive add-on - the paint comes with its own warranty, why do you need more? Wax it and it stays shiny for longer! Or our petrol station if you spend over £30, you get a free carwash.

Only thing to add is has anyone got any experience of a coating called Permashine. Being offered for £300 on top, meant to provide additional protection to paintwork and scotchguard the interior - with a 5 year guarantee. I usually wouldn't go for add-ons but am curious if this means I can go for longer without washing it Haven't taken them up on it yet.

Gone for a Black Strike diesel, costing £8232 (7700 + 383 for the colour + there was an administration pack fee of 149 which was annoying, get a full tank in return - small consolation I know)
Looking at a 12 week delay for '10 plate, which I don't mind too much, just means my fuel is costing twice as much as it will if I had it now. Going to be downsizing from a 2.4 Petrol auto costing £400 a year in tax (not the car being scrapped, will sell in April), so should be quids in in 4-5 years I reckon.

Unfortunately for you, it's a trade in rather than a scrappage scheme so includes the clause "the trade in vehicle must also be in good general condition, free of any major mechanical faults and bodywork damage, and its actual mileage must not have exceeded 100,000 miles" in the T&Cs.

The article makes a few good points however some people DO go to a dealership for their brand new car. This means that this comment from the article isn't entirely valid:

You have to buy through a dealer. This is not likely to extend to car … You have to buy through a dealer. This is not likely to extend to car brokers and car supermarkets, which are normally thousands of pounds cheaper.



Some people would actually rather buy from a dealership because if there are problems they can go straight back to them. This is the exact reason that some people go to Currys or Comet to buy a new washing machine rather than get the cheapest deal online.

Again, this comment from the article is not valid for those that already buy from their local dealership.

Brand-new cars lose a huge portion of their value immediately. Once … Brand-new cars lose a huge portion of their value immediately. Once you've signed the ownership papers for a £10,000 car, you'll normally be able to re-sell it for roughly £6,000 to £8,000; that's £2,000 to £4,000 less in an instant.



So, for the type of person who always buys from their dealer then this may not be a bad deal. Don't forget that a dealer isn't going to offer much for a trade in on a 10+ year old either.

Having said that, how many people trade in a 10+ year old car for a brand new one? Not many! I'd have thought that most either trade in their 3 year old car when the finance has finished or they buy 2nd hand cars.

It's a good deal for those who were planning on trading their 10+ year old in for a small and cheap car. Hopefully the government will think about the comments raised in the article and extend the scheme to all new cars.

Please read what I said more carefully. I didn't say it had NOTHING to do … Please read what I said more carefully. I didn't say it had NOTHING to do with the environemnt, just that it was ALSO a convenient way of making more money out of those who drive higher Co2 emitting motors. What I was saying was that having that increase justified as an environmental tax makes no bloody sense when you consider this scheme is going to encourage those with perfectly serviceable vehicles to scrap 'em - at a high environmental cost - and buy a new car - made with an even higher environmental cost - instead of getting a few more years out of a vehicle that may be emitting slightly more polutants than a modern car but that's already paid the environmental cost of manufacture.Oh, and if you want to play that game, how about proving that people are buying cars based on saving £30 a year in tax rather than changing to vehicles that get better petrol mileage which happen to coincide with cars in a lower VED bracket?




I read and understood exactly what you meant with regards to this scheme. However, there are too many people who seem to think that the government are using green issues to generate additional revenue and you touched on this. I merely asked for a bit of evidence that the Government are generating more revenue with the new VED brackets.

Clearly I can't prove the reasons for people choosing a certain car over another.

That's got nothing to with what I asked about. Increasing tax for 4x4s … That's got nothing to with what I asked about. Increasing tax for 4x4s may generate additional revenue from some people, however, as more cars are being made with very low CO2 emissions and promoted as such the tax revenue from other people is lower. Before making accusations that changing the VED rates has nothing to do with the environment but is purely to generate additional revenue I'd like to see some evidence rather than someone statement.



Please read what I said more carefully. I didn't say it had NOTHING to do with the environemnt, just that it was ALSO a convenient way of making more money out of those who drive higher Co2 emitting motors.
