Paid 399 pound deposit to skoda over the phone they said it is to reserve the car and they give me 300 back the following week when I pick up the car. Its been just over two weeks now and they still can't give me an estimated delivery date. All they can tell me is it is in the UK and 'out for delivery' I really need the car immediately. What can I do?

Here is what they emailed me.

All lease terms are 36 months, 6000 miles per annum for New C1, C3, DS 3, DS 3 Cabrio, Berlingo Multispace, C3 Picasso and C4 Cactus.


This turns the above deal for a personal lease customers into £3,484.98 over 2yrs or £145.21 per month.

The lease car doesn't belong to you, it belongs to the lease co'. Your insurance policy and any Gap insurance you have is aiming to put the lease co' back to the position they would have been in had the car not been stolen or written off, not you.

Simple example:

You lease a car over 2 years.

Initial payment upfront: £1200
Then 23 months at: £200
At the end of the 2 years, the lease co' is expecting to get the car back and for it to be worth £13,000.

After 6 months, the car is stolen.

The lease co' have already had £1200 + (5 x £200) off you and will now be looking to recover the £13,000 plus the outstanding payments you owe.

So they want £13,000 + (18 x £200) = £16,600
Insurance co' say the car was actually worth £15,000 when it was stolen, so they pay the lease co' that much – it goes to them, not you. You then owe the other £1600 but if you have Gap insurance that should pay out the difference.

So all in all, you're not too badly off; you don't owe anyone anything.

BUT... You have paid £1200 + (5 x £200) = £2,400 to drive the car for 6 months and now you have to start again.

If the initial upfront payment had been lower and the monthly payments higher to balance it out, you might have only paid £600 + (5 x £226) = £1730 for those 6 months.

Your insurance co' and Gap co' would have still put the lease co' back to being where they should be, but you'll have paid out less yourself.

Gap insurance pays out the difference between the current market value of the car and the new price.Your insurance will only pay out the current market value.

Let's say the car gets written off after 18 months. The current value of the car at 18 months old will be a fair few £k less than new.
No different to your own vehicle but for your own vehicle you may decide you are happy to take the current value of the car.

For a lease car though, the car doesn't belong to you and the lease company may hit you for more than the current value of the car as you may owe more on the lease than the value of the car when it is written off.

If it's stolen or written off you will lose the £1200 even with Gap insurance.I say this as someone who has a lease car with a bigger upfront payment than this.Just pointing out that saving £100 might not be the best option if there's another deal with a smaller upfront payment.

Terms & Conditions Apply, prices do not include first reg fee, RFL, and any optional extras

Guessing by this you need to add a few quid to cover registration and RFL

Not a bad buy if you are just doing the school run etc, but I've driven loads of these in 1.6 guise and they are pretty gutless so cant really expect much from the 1.4 99 bhp version. The Astra is a pretty heavy car

I don't know if your just saying these are good deals for the repayment plan or not. It all depends on your situation.

As far as cash prices go or at least the price they stating as OTR this is expensive.

There is about 10% discount online for the Techlines and 23% Exclusiv models, not sure what finance can be arranged for these deals.

To be fair since my Rover Metro I havent really had a problem with a car. When I first got the Astra it broke down 3times due to a Cam shaft sensor or something but they eventually fixed that (under warranty). Since then the only new things I have had put on it that isnt wear and tear stuff has been the water pump oh and a Cat but that is because I went over a car battery and broke it.

If I wanted to do that I would just lease.



To be fair I have not calculated what would be better, buying then selling every couple of years or leasing. But I also don't have the spare £ around to upgrade that regularly. I do like having the extra doors, was the biggest pain about my old Rover Metro (other than it was a death trap of course).

Are there any similar small family car deals? Skoda Octavia etc? Any help appreciated!
