New Golf Cabriolet £1500 discount + 0% finance (from £189 p/m)

There are bigger discounts available for cash buyers than £1500 but if you're buying on finance or with a trade in the combination of £1500 off plus the 0% finance makes a real saving.

Tidy but can the back seats be used by adults with legs?

Surprisingly yes, only 2 seats though.

It should be noted that the £189 p/m is over 3 years, requires a deposit of £4490 and a final payment of somewhere in the region of £9000

Yes, £8130 - more commonly known as "somewhere in the region of £8000".

Had Golfs for 25 years, best cars ever, got the 2.0 GTTDI, 60 mpg - seriously tempted!

Over 19k for that?!

19K - wait until VW put an audi badge on it - it will be 22K then! amazes me how well AUDI have distanced the brand from VW, to the point some people dont even know they are really VW.

0% finance makes this deal hot for me. Shame im in negative equity on my car or id be seriously tempted.

Do you know if the future value is guaranteed or not?

Poor range of engines though. Where is the 170PS 2.0TDI or the 210PS 2.0TSI? I'll stick with my 170TDI Scirocco for now.

Good offer from VW if you're wanting a cabriolet in the £20-25k price range - VW almost never give 0% finance, and you don't have to put half the RRP of the car down as deposit to get it. That 0% deal represents a proper £3-4K saving against the financed price of an average 7% APR deal on a car of comparable cost.

Chelmsfordman: I'd say your future guaranteed value is your £9k balloon payment. Pay £9k for it at the end or walk away after 3 years. In reality i'd expect this to retain 50-55% of purchase value after 3 years (5-8% more than a standard Golf) unless you choose a really unpopular engine/trim combination at bottom spec.

Tot all that up and you're getting to drive a financed £20k car for £20k total outlay if you buy at the end, making it 0% finance - where is the surprise here?

I would be seriously tempted by this if the 170TDI was available. I've had both the 140TDI and the 170TDI, and I wouldn't go back to the 140 - the 170 is so much better to drive, with a very small fuel penalty for the extra power and torque.

Don't do it!!!

my daughter bought a brand new VW Eos she ordered it had it 18 months the roof leaked which ended up with black mould all over the cream carpen, the injectors were stuffed and the cream nappa leather was a nightmare to keep clean. She had only done 9k in it!! when she sold it back to them she lost 6k on it she paid 26k for it.



Shouldn't that all be covered by warranty Ericabro?

She lost 6k after 18 months and 9000 miles? That seems very good if you ask me.

It was covered by the warranty but they had the car for around 6 months and it still wasn't fixed so she thought it was a better idea to get a different car as it was in the garage every other week with something wrong with it. I think they took the mick out of her really by keeping it forever.

think I will have to stick with my 12yrs+ old Golf GTi Turbo... still going strong.. starting to look a little tatty though..

Specced it up to a decent spec that I'd want & it came out at £36k !!

Like a golf... but with the roof chopped

Ericabro: Did your daughter lubricate the seals for the folding roof with silicone spray every six months? Perhaps not, some dealerships are very poor at providing advice like that - very important to do for cars with folding roofs or frameless windows.

You will always get hammered on resale if you keep a car for what the trade would consider to be a short period, saying that though, 25% lost on RRP after 18 months is good going when you consider some cars lose 50% in 18 months.

VWs are generally good solid cars, but when you get a dog, you really get a dog - the 1.4TSI 160PS engine is plagued with misfire problems if you believe everything you read on the VW forums.

Why would you buy one? You can lease this car far cheaper! It works out at £313 per month over 3 years under this scheme, you can lease from £251 per month and the car includes road tax. The final payment is what it would be worth after 3 years.

Looked on the site, and the radio display is in German!

Seriously, also doesn't mention DAB radio.

It seems to be a common problem, but criminal that car radios are not shipping with DAB at this stage.
