Nope, funnily enough Peter Vardy did not call back when they said they would, so I got annoyed and didn't bother. I have been looking at the new Mustang now, but unsure what to go for. Like you, not alot of price quotes have stood out to me recently. Hope you get a good deal!

We've been conned by QE for years. Yes all that QE made us appear to be doing great, so great in fact that taxes were going down, the national debt was going down and more services were in the pipeline..oh wait.

Anyway, we're here now so so I guess we all find out one way or another.

Apparently a lot of people who felt 'left behind' or were 'just about managing' voted for Brexit. Good luck then with the new post-Brexit reality that's about to engulf you. You're about to become 'left way behinds' and 'just can't manage any mores'. Or maybe they believed Nigel Garage's rallying cry about 'fighting for The Little Man'. I do hope these people have now spotted that Nige has gone back to his old day job of being a stockbroker and that his chief financial backer trousered £220 million as a result of betting on Brexit. Ever felt like you've been conned? Oh, and about the EU not doing so great. Well maybe it isn't but WE were doing well, very well actually, in fact better than we had done for decades and surely that's more important, especially if you're going to wrap yourself up in The Union Jack and claim to love your country?

Most materials come from abroad so almost all suppliers/manufacturers in the uk have to put prices up.I hope people realise the bull**** we were all fed.



Yep. I'm 100% with you on this. I recently bought a 16 plate car, not because I needed one but because in a year's time, I reckon it will be at least 10% more expensive and because of inflation I'll be that much poorer. I also bought one with the absolute minimum running costs because fuel is set to rocket.

I really don't understand the views of people that even now still believe voting for Brexit was the smart thing to do. The £ is already substantially down and likely to crater even further whatever happens with Article 50. Inflation is already with us; I'm already seeing this at Aldi & Lidl. We're retuning to the days of bad money where inflation outstrips what you can get in interest on your savings. And for what? We're already set for £122 billion in lost growth. It looks very much like we'll continue to pay into the EU for access to the single market. Everyone already here will have the right to stay here and the bulk EU law will simply be enshrined in English law! How is that a win??

I find it deeply ironic that people who make such an emotionally incontinent display of 'loving their country' are the very people that are going be responsible for damaging it beyond repair. So sad when, for the first time I'm my living memory that the country was actually doing okay relative to our peers.

Au Contraire. After Brexit , the pound will get stronger and be worth more and so will buy more and prices will go down..

The con is that we have to wait two years to get out of the Evil EU , and instead of paying money into the EU political ideal hole, the Government will be able to spend the money here , where they want and that includes the NHS !

As far as I can tell I seem to be averaging about 42MPG, I am happy with that for a 2000kg car, especially as over the half of the miles were at shall we say at a brisk pace down the motorway.
Should get better as the engine loosens up over the next few thousand miles.

I am sure now most of the horror stories have been from short journey driving.

Maybe that is peculiar to Volkswagen because they are to busy warming up … Maybe that is peculiar to Volkswagen because they are to busy warming up the emission fiddle electronics.



Nope, my mate's company Merc A200 diesel is the same - EU6 variants take a lot longer to warm up than their EU5 predecessors. The current EU6 compliant VW TDI engines are not under suspicion - the EU5 ones are affected, like those seen on MK6 Golfs or my old 2011 Scircco 170TDI. My GTD took a lot longer to warm up than the Scirocco. One of my mates has a 2011 A4 2.0TDI 136ps (they squeezed it into the £30 tax disc bracket at that output) and he got his recall notice yesterday.

Outside gridlocked cities NOx disperses quite quickly, i'd be more concerned with getting the old pre-DPF diesels off the road. Saying that, my Golf R's tailpipes get quite sooty whereas the wife's A1 1.6TDI has an immaculately clean tailpipe - guess which one is throwing out more particulates?

Excellent deal for the vehicle compared to rival offers on the market

Surely this applies to any garage. You are always at the mercy of conmen in the motor trade unless you are best buddies with the mechanic, or you are mechanically savvy. I am mechanically savvy so I am happy to get a good deal on the oil and filter change, and the stamp in the book, so works for me.
I sound like some sort of apologist for Peter Vardy, but to be fair, I have used the Motherwell branch for 4 MOT tests over past 12 months and experienced absolutely no grief, and a very professional service.
However, would I buy a car from them? Absolutely no chance. No prices on adverts, or car windscreens in showroom, only an array of absolutely bamboozling figures. Bought a few Vauxhalls over the past few years, Peter Vardy were never able to compete with Evans Halshaw and Arnold Clark when it came to the nitty gritty of the deal.

Yes you are correct. I'll be paying £69.99, as quoted in the offer, for the wife's 4 year old DIESEL Corsa. Seems okay to me as you get the service book stamped. Just had both our cars MOT tested for £19.50 each. Both passed no bother. No attempt to offer quote to repair on the couple of advisories on my 9 year-old car.
I generally do my own servicing when car is out of warranty period. This offer is worth it due to cost of oil and service book stamp. Plan to sell the wife's Corsa sometime soon, so service history can help to get a few quid more for the car.

wouldn't trust my car with them, you will almost certainly pay more than the £49.00

Great word 'from'. I wonder how many people would actually get this for £49.99?
The Facebook site links you to this page - if you get a courtesy car too for £49.99 this is a great deal.

Why not a diesel? Too many urban miles?



Well when I purchased the 1 series (both new - 1 in 2006 116i and 1 in 2008 revised 116i), on paper the petrol engines should have been quite economical but that just wasn't the case and was the only thing I could say that I wasn't impressed with. Yeah I've had diesels since then, currently a 530d

I've owned a couple of petrol 1 series, both were fun cars to drive - excellent handling and good driving position, but the fuel economy was terrible. Then I forgot about fuel and i've owned two 5 series since

I've owned two 1 Series' before and now own a 1 year old 3 Series Coupe.

Better looking? Yes I guess so but it comes at a higher price. It will cost more than a new 1 series and because of the weight and chassis size a smaller engine will be gutless in a 3 series chassis, where as it will be perfectly fine in a 1 series one.

More comfortable/more room? The seats are actually the same part numbers on both. Yes the cabin is smaller but its a totally different market - one (the 3 Series) is a family saloon/sports coupe. The other (1 Series) is a hatchback.

I think these are great deals - again if you meet their conditions (I'm sure it is the Vauxhall Partners companies you have the work or know someone who works for them)
Also when I inquired about these deals it is only if want that car, no upgrades, no changes at all. I couldn't trade in a car that still had finance on it either. Then it went straight onto their not 0% finance.

In the end I ended up at Evans Halshaw and got the car I wanted all in for less.

Some of my workmates have bought Peter's cars and swear by them.........like it has been said before - a good deal if you can get it.

Assuming there are around 17 weeks left the car works out at £158.31 per month over the 5 years

(5years = 260weeks
17weeks@£29.99 = £509.83
243weeks@£36.99 = £8988.57
Total Price = £9498.40
---------------------------------
Payable over 60 months = £158.31)

Arnold Clark (from OP £8995@0% = £149.92 per month
Trade-in your old car an Evans Halshaw works out at £127.08 per month - (I think they need the partners thing too though)

Peter's and Arnold Clark will be different dependent on trade in though cos Evans Halshaw list the car at £11,625 with a £4000 min trade-in

Iain at Peter Vardy: thats ok you would qualify for that price where do you live
You: Near Dundee.
Iain at Peter Vardy: your closet branch is Perth
You: Is that owned outright or is it a lease scheme?
Iain at Peter Vardy: you can finance it various ways
You: But I could just pay cash, bring a 7 year old car in part ex and pay 6499 or is the price conditional on a finance scheme?
Iain at Peter Vardy: no but if you want a metallic colour it would be 549 more
You: sorry - what was the no in respect of?
Iain at Peter Vardy: what do you mean
You: OK, can I purchase this car for 6499 cash + 7 year old part-ex? Or is it dependent on a finance scheme?
Iain at Peter Vardy: yes you can no finance required

If you want a people carrier then I would recommend one of the Toyota's. I have had 4 Yaris' in the last six years. Customer service from dealer and manufacturer is superb. When I purchased my new one at the end of march I cheekily wrote a letter to Toyota asking for either the 30000 miles free servicing or the 5 year warranty that I heard on the radio a few days after taking delivery. Got a phone call from the dealer within a few days asking which one I would like. They didn't even have to offer any as I purchased mine before the offer kicked in. I would certainly recommend Toyota to anyone. A 7 seat toyota will certainly be my wifes next car now after the Vauxhall shananigans.

oil leaks electrical problems they catch fire........the list goes on and on

Rust has appeared on the boot after just over 3 years old. They have agreed to repair it if I have an anti-corrosion inspection done at the cost of £40+vat. This is although the inspection was done in years 1 and 2 of its life and they only need to be done every 2 years anyway (according to the warranty book) so shouldn't need to be done until 4 years old. Wrote a letter to Vauxhall (UK) and they said the area managers decision is final. I will never buy vauxhall again.

I rang them and they won't give any discount for scrappage.



I'm not surprised, given it's such a cheap price and an EU import (AFAIK the scrappage scheme covers brand new UK sourced cars through the proper dealer network, not pre-registered or EU imports).

if you want one for business surely you buy a proper van for that price - pity cos if it had proper back seats it would be a bargain

Nice if you want one for a business, but as has already been mentioned they only come with two seats and you can not put any additional seats in, so not for me.

I rang them and they won't give any discount for scrappage. Also this is definitely only the 2 seater with big load bay.

Again, we're very largely in agreement. I echo the view that the … Again, we're very largely in agreement. I echo the view that the Japanese showed the world how to make a reliable car (though it should be added that they haven't always been too good on durability), but many others have learned from them and, in some cases, surpassed them. They're also not consistently on top when it comes to safety (see NCAP listings), but again even the poorest today are way better than a car of 10 years ago. If value and reliability are higher on your list than excitement, performance, prestige, etc. then a used Korean is probably a pretty good buy.



I'm sure we are agreeing with each other here too.

I found that certain marques have much more appealing interiors - the ideal car for me would have been a German body with Japanese engine and electrics.

I'd say the durability of the Japanese mechanical and electrical components were always good - certainly by the 1970's at least - back then the bodies simply disolved.

Saying that, some of the Euro offerings of the day were not that much better really.

My dad had a Fiat 126 during the fuel crisis :oops: which had to be completely resprayed at the grand old age of two years due to rust and his Ford Escort that was traded in for a For Cortina had to have a bottom half respray at the ripe old age of 3 years! Both truly shocking examples.

I've owned Japanese cars with reasonable levels of excitement or fun factor, my old '86 Corolla AE86 was a blast to drive and has been a cult car for many years now. My '95 Nissan 240SX is a very nice car to drive as well - it's still going strong today but it has an easy life in Florida. I still hanker for a 240Z....

The prestige thing actually irks me somewhat and I've always avoided it. It's all about perception of a marque at the end of the day rather than anything else.

Value and reliability is definitely my starting point when buying a car - I love the looks of some of the new Alfas (and even Fiats) but unfortunately I'd never buy one due to the expected reliability issues :x

I hear ya!Most of my experience tends to be from friends/colleagues/or … I hear ya!Most of my experience tends to be from friends/colleagues/or personal ownership, naturally, it is guided to an extent from outside sources which I’d say tend to reinforce my traditional viewpoint that the Japanese were really the pioneers of the truly reliable vehicle. When I was a lad my father owned mainly Ford cars as did most his friends – when he finally went “Japanese” in ‘83 it was an end to tins of damp start and blankets over engines on a winters night – you put the key in the ignition and the car started – which was quite novel at the time.I curious regarding which Korean models are poor products – I tend to view reliability as the number one concern, with other factors trailing – (a Toyota fits the bill perfectly). Are they poor in reliability or just function/style? I was actually very impressed with the Picanto – especially the anchor-like braking! I’m not saying it’s the best car in the world but it certainly surpassed my expectations. I’ve not had any experience of the dealer network but I have read that Kia UK is abysmal for customer service/complaints.I have to agree with you on the quality of US domestic cars (non-transplant) which are of very low grade. Mind you for the price, you do get a fair bit of car for the money.Jaguar has not been known as a good reliable car for so long now that I’m sure it will take a very long time indeed to reverse this mentality even if they are able to produce something equivalent to a Lexus – and why shouldn’t the benchmark be as high?My main gripe about Land Rover (the old Defender series etc) was that they were still considered back then to be the best – the truth was they were not. The scenario of the Landy parked in a field and abused by squaddies – substitute a Toyota Land Cruiser and the chances are that it would start and have no problems even after being abused. I’ve got pals in the UK with Discoveries from the 21st century that had endless sensor problems and fiddly issues occurring with regular monotony. Another friend who owns a garage had a problem with his Range Rover that even the main dealer couldn’t rectify – it’s still enough to keep me away from them – although they are very nice looking products overall. If it was my money I’d have an Infiniti FX50S – however, I’m not in the market for an SUV. I don’t doubt at all that there has been a dramatic improvement over time – but just like the Koreans (who are actually succeeding) a hell of a jump was needed.I tend to buy cars just out of warranty or older so don’t normally factor in any dealer activity with my purchase. I’m certainly not saying that the Japanese or other Asian manufacturers offer a better product in all cases, I’m just conveying that the likelihood is much higher with them than most other manufacturers for producing a safe, reliable means of transport. :thumbsup:
