Your insurance wont cover you for the up front payment of £2.4k. Write the …Your insurance wont cover you for the up front payment of £2.4k. Write the car off driving off of the forecourt and you've lost £2.4k. With a lease your insurer sorts out the settlement directly with the lease company and you keep paying the payments til its been settled. You wont see a penny of the insurance money you'll simply be let out of the contract when the insurers settle.


That isn't strictly true - most insurers will pay the invoice value on a car less than 12 months old (new for old) so you could actually end up depending on your total loss terms of the lease.
Hibbers1 on here pointed out that for direct line the new for old only applies if you are the owner rather than the registered keeper (which would match your example). There are also some insurers offering 2 years new for old (would be a little contentious if you were to write off a car every 18 months).
As always its down to the fine print on the lease terms and the insurance terms you have, working out what you want gap to cover and then ensuring you take out a policy that covers that - the highest number of complaints raised to the ombudsman is for gap insurance not covering what people thought it.
Of course Gap for lease coverage, as it covers less, is also not huge sums. m5rcc has previously recommended ALA which I think presently has a discount code another poster put on here in the last few days.

But this isn't about *buying* a diesel, it's leasing for 2 years for nearly the same price as the lower-spec 1.4 petrol version.
10,000 mostly motorway miles a year would still be a couple hundred quid cheaper on fuel, and possibly more pleasant with less revving and gearchanges in the much torquier, better equipped diesel, especially with family and/or luggage on board.

I've been quoted 18 weeks lead time from another broker so guess that a standard for them all. Lead time direct from Skoda.

Why not go for 2 years initially and then extend by a further 6 or 12 months if you need to? I've extended my 2 year lease by a further 6 months and the monthlies are still more or less the same, and the car shouldn't need another service before I return it. You can also vary the mileage if you wish.

It's a matter of striking the right balance and getting as much flexibility as possible. 2yr deals can mean more frequent large upfront payments, whereas the 3 year terms mean you making a longer commitment, and potentially more hassle if your circumstances change long before the agreement ends.

Agree the Scirocco is starting to show its age now. There's no replacement on the horizon though, and there are rumours it may be axed.

I've had 2 of these in the past (2009 and 2011) and they were great cars, but the MQB platform was a huge leap forward in handling/refinement for the MK7 Golf and other MQB based models - the Scirocco desperately needs an update, it is approaching 9 years old now.

If I was into cars I'd much prefer to save up and buy outright instead of hiring it for 2 years. £6000 can buy you a hell of a lot of car - haha!!



I'll never understand why people seem to think that leases are for people trying to pretend they can afford a new car. You need to put some figures and assumptions against owning versus leasing rather than just having that warm fuzzy feeling that you own the car.

What about those of us who have that £7000 and an S&S ISA with which they estimate they can achieve a 7% return annually?

The return on £7000 invested for 2 years at 7% p/a would be £1014.30.

However, for a fair comparison, we'd need to pull the funds needed for the lease out of the ISA and leave the rest invested, i.e. you'd be starting with £4360.01 in your ISA and pulling £83.76 out of it monthly. This reduces the return quoted above to £495.27.

You'd have stuck £7000 in your ISA, paid the overall lease cost of £4566.47 and be left with £2928.80 in your ISA.

In buying, you'd have spent £7,000 on the car and £300 or so in tax. The 6000 miles per year on a Seat lease with longlife servicing means no tyres and a single service. Your purchased car will likely require 4 tyres and an extra service - lets say around £600.

Putting all those figures together means that you'd need to sell your car for £2928.80 + £300 + £600 = £3828.80 to be even with the lease.

A typical car depreciates by 35% in 2 years meaning that your car would be worth £4550.

In summary, if buying a 4 year old Focus and selling after 2 years, you should reasonably expect to save £721.20 over the cost of leasing this new car. I, for one, would be willing to pay the 19% premium to own a brand new Seat Leon over a 4 year old Focus.

The above figures assumes that nothing goes wrong with the Focus - which is well outside it's warranty period. That's a pretty big assumption and any deviation skews the results towards the lease being the cheaper option.

Personally, I change cars every 2 years anyway so leasing avoids the hassle of having to deal with potential buyers when trying to sell a car.

Such as? A seven year old Focus? Congrats!



6,000 miles wouldn't be enough for me but it's plenty for some people. If you need more miles then increasing the allowance to 10k per year costs a huge £7.56 extra per month.

The cost of this deal is not £6,000, it's actually less than £5,000, even with the increased mileage allowance. That same money will get you a 5 to 6 year old Leon with about 50k on the clock, part worn tyres, max 1 years VED and warranty. It probably won't break down if it's been looked after, but if it does then once your warranty has run out then that cost is on you.

Not everyone that leases does so to pretend they can afford a new car. There are those that do it as they know it can sometimes work out less expensive than buying outright. You just have to shop around and know the difference between a good deal and a bad deal. Also with leasing you get fixed costs and you don't have a large amount of cash tied up in a depreciating asset.

Everyone knows second hand cars are less expensive than new ones. It's basic economics. A more meaningful comparison would be to compare the cost of this lease with purchasing either with cash or via pcp.

Initial Payment £2,400 + £239.99 = £2,639.99
Monthly fee 23 x £83.76 = £1,926.48

Total £4,566.47 or an average of £190 a month.

Having a quick look around does not look a bad price for this car but not sure it is Hot.

yes, i know lower miles is better priced, but i need at least 16000, so 15000 plus extra miles paid, is my only option. it is really difficult to find diesel engine lease with high miles cheap.

It's not mandatory of course but it's just there to cover the difference between what you still owe and the market value of the car if you write it off. It's a significant commission earner for dealers/lease firms, so it is usually less than half the price when purchased independently, such as via ALA via TCB. (I'm not an ALA salesperson, Bertie).

Scratches and dents depend on the lease firm and their T&Cs. Typically, small areas of chipping, light scratches up to 25mm in length and dents up to 10mm providing paint is not broken are permissible. Any larger it may be prudent to fix them at your cost before the end of term, but no doubt I shall be corrected.

They were one of the first manufacturers to do so, partly because they had to do SOMETHING about their vehicles rotting away and partly because galvanised steel became much cheaper (if you use very cheap steel and then galvanise it the cost can be less than decent quality steel).



Probably all of their range by the early to mid 1990s were fully galvanised, but I recall my uncle's Croma being mechanically perfect but rotten within eight years.

That's quite a contradictory set of sentences, no? And before Bertie gets his knickers in a twist, I'm referring to owning a diesel but not leasing one. Given all the problems associated with the aforementioned emissions and the unreliable emissions equipment on a diesel, unless you do 20k+ miles/year, need a very big vehicle such as a pick-up or a van, or need to tow something, why would you buy a diesel. Would it not be prudent to lease a diesel, but buy a petrol to own?

As I say - I'm not in a leasing deal so just commenting on the research I've done as I'm also thinking about it.

For e.g. this car here I've picked randomly: https://www.selectcarleasing.co.uk/car-leasing/nissan/qashqai/hatchback/15_dci_n~connecta_5dr/73659.html

shows maintenance as £14 p/m excl.VAT so work on that as an example

Although remember as it's a new car, you'll be covered under the manufacturers warranty if any issues happen. You'll just have to decide on a case by case basis as to what's included under the man. warranty and decide whether it's worth the extra money for peace of mind for those things not covered.

As fossman says, the likelihood will be you'll just be paying for 1 annual service on a 2 year lease.
