Do you understand the time value of money? I.e. net present value? Cashflow? Etc?

If so, then you know why 1+23 is far, far, far better than 9+23.

I got the Yeti, last year, Simpsons was great, the car was delayed though, took a good, 3/4 months. Love it though, great car so far, MPG on th e1.2 DSG no where near what they claim. Also you nee to watch out for after sales insurance sells.
Scratch & Dent repair, costs a few hundred quid, i didnt take it out. But the one that you may well end up getting is GAP cover, Skoda charge £200, what that does is cover any difference in cost between, the value of the car th einsuranc epays out and the value of the car Skoda says they want, in the event of a right off. Now generally your own insurance will pay the full value in teh first year anyway, but it sthe second year where it matters the most. However I took the cover independently for abou £90 and not £200 by the biggest gap cover provider, recommended on honestjohn website.

I'd just take the hit when it gets picked up as the charges are far cheaper than paying £100 per wheel yourself. Your also allowed up to a total of 50mm kerbing on each alloy wheel as per fair wear and tear so if it's less than that then you should get no charge at all. If you contact Skoda they should be able to give you a list of prices. The pic attached is from a posting on a VW thread with their charges.[Image]



sorry to resurrect this thread but just wondered if anybody has tested the body panel damage values out?? I had a minor disaster at the weekend when we drove into a carpark and ripped two bikes of the roof of my Skoda damaging the roof and rear spoiler - I recon it's more than a grand of damage if I get it repaired but from the list of charges I think it would only cost me £330? Anybody had any experience with this?

I just looked at Skodas today as it happens. Theres not a pups chance the new Fabia is in line with the new Fiesta. Its cheaper but it very much looks and feels it.

The Octavia wouldnt be for me. I'd have a Focus over one no probs. Its the better car dynamically.

I'd have a Mondy over a Superb and likewise i gave less for my Passat at a year old than would have bought an equivalent Superb.

Decent solid cars, but very much a budget value brand, so i'm oot.

If i'm buying a car i view VW, Ford, Vauxhall, Toyota, Mazda, etc as your "standard" offering, Audi, Merc, VW as your premium brand offering, and Skoda, KIA, Hyundai as your budget offering.Unless we feel passionate about a particular car then i probably wont feel an urge to spend say an extra £5,000 to get an Audi badge on the front, however likewise i dont particularly want the "budget" option, unless theres a real saving to be had.

But it's not as simple as just platforms as the Octavia is based on a stretched golf platform and I think Skoda meant it to be positioned in the Mondeo segment. However, it's the smallest car in that class but large for the Focus-sized one. Other manufacturers have increased their general sizes and got rid of their largest sized car (remember the Granada and Omega?), but Skoda still have the Superb to compensate at the top end.

Swings and roundabouts. I've owned a Skoda before VW takeover. The bodywork was terrible. Razor thin sheet metal on the wheel arches that rusted just by looking at it. This was very much improved when VW took over. However they made some puzzling cost cutting measures that appeared to just be an attempt to grab as much money from owners in future. For example. On the old 1.3l Skoda engine the thermostat housing was cast aluminium metal. If the thertmostat failed you needed a new thermostat £5, and a gasket <£1. When the Fabia 1.4l 8v MPI was released based on the same engine, it had a plastic thermostat housing. The problem with this thermostat is it was held in tension against a spring with two plastic prongs. Eventually the plastic breaks up internally, and the whole thing has to be replaced at a cost of £50. And that's the thermostat housing failing, not the thermostat itself.

I personally think Volkswagen have too much brand cachet, and Skoda not enough. But it's clearly VW Group's mission to fill a bit of the market to try justify higher prices for the "better" VWs. We're seeing the exact same thing with Renault bringing out Dacia, but having just been to a Renault/Dacia dealer yesterday I can say the difference in quality between the two is bigger than between Skoda and VW. I picked up a Duster brochure, sat in the Duster, put the brochure back X)

Only yesterday I test drove the Octavia with this engine but with DSG box . I have to say I was impressed by the engine and the steering but less so with the suspension. I found the 1.4TSI 150PS engine to be a sweet quiet engine that smoothly delivers adequate power, (much nicer to drive than the 1.6tdi that I also tried). Though I have real doubts if it can deliver anywhere near the claimed combined 55.4 mpg (58.9 with DSG). Anyone know the "real mpg" i.e. not what the computer says because they always give a rosy figure.

If modern diesels were over-stressed they would fail quicker. They don't … If modern diesels were over-stressed they would fail quicker. They don't for high milers. There is a reason high mileage drivers almost invariably go diesel. They also don't smell either (your first post) - i don't get out at work and have to scrub up due to the car i drive. You have also omitted to mention better torque so far superior for high load applications such as towing as well as the obvious better economy and range. Many modern diesels are a joy to drive, smooth and refined. You can barely tell they are diesel once warmed and have great mid range punch for over-taking. True VW were caught out but they also produce plenty of other diesel engines that perform just as well as those that cheated without resorting to hoodwinking the tester (mine being one of them). I have owned more petrol cars than diesel and would happily purchase either in the future. Its horses for courses really.


Exactly: diesels are more efficient because they have higher compression ratios, rev slower (hence produce more torque), last longer (because they rev slower and have to be stronger due to high compression) and produce much less CO2 than Otto cycle engines. Petrol motors are lighter (because they do not have to be so strong), have higher specific power outputs (due to higher engine speeds) and produce less NOX. Neither is perfect, but each suits some circumstances better than others. In the UK with very similar tax regimes on the fuels the market for cars is pretty equally divided with electricity and LPG being bit players (for the time being).

What a joke that is, they're horrendous. Your point about petrol vehicles wearing out? I've owned plenty of cars (including Alfa's) that've done more than that sort of mileage and have still run fine. And even at that mileage they're quieter and smoother than a diesel, mainly because they're not as highly stressed as a modern diesel has to be.

I think we will have to agree to disagree. I (and 45.9% of drivers) like diesels, in particular the compression ignition engine's inherent advantage in thermodynamic efficiency (over the spark ignition engine) that will always lead to better specific fuel efficiency for diesel cars, which must be good for the environment and our pockets.
No government (not even the Labour administrations that presided over the increase in popularity of diesels) has lied to us owners, the information is plain to see.
There are advantages and demerits of diesels and petrol cars (I have one of each), but very clearly neither is 'complete crap' (your words), so let's just leave it there.

Or you can't afford a second hand because things that are used are money pits and owning a deprecating asset is the road to financial ruin.

Ordered today! leeds are £1500 more for same deal!

Currently driving one of these, just be wary of going overboard with the extras. Think the figure was £8 per month for every extra £100. Heated Seats/Window Tints/Leather/etc etc start to add up... Happy with the car though, its very nice to drive. Simpsons service was great and they delivered it for free which was a nice surprise.

Should mention that you should take your test drive over speed bumps and make sure you are happy with firm suspension. The scout may suit for people who aren't.

Your opinion of what is clean and what is dirty is outdated, by about 10 years.Diesel tech has come a long way for particulates and NOx- a brand new EU6 compliant diesel is cleaner than a brand new EU6 compliant direct injection petrol in terms of what comes out of the tail pipe.

If all the car manufacturers embrace cylinder deactivation (like the VAG ACT 1.4TSI 150ps unit) and they can't find a way to make it work for diesels (they currently can't) then i'd agree that diesels are doomed in the longer term as petrol mpg catches up with diesel mpg. Right now though a new EU6 compliant one isn't the filthy noise box you are making it out to be.

They're basically a honeycomb-like catalytic structure within a box between your engine's exhaust manifold and teh exhaust itself. The structure traps the particulates and burns them off when the engine gets the DPF hot enough to do so. Nothing majorly complicated with them.I would imagine that pretty soon the petrol engines will have DPFs, when they're all running direct injection as they also produce particulates. The sound and smell of diesels - obviously basing that on being stuck downwind of an ancient taxi's tailpipe - an EU6 compliant diesel's output is cleaner than that of an EU6 compliant petrol, and the newest diesels are quite quiet these days (especially the VAG and BMW 6 cylinder units) - they tick rather than clatter at idle, and when actually moving they're quieter than a petrol because they're operating at around 40% fewer revs at any given speed when cruising. Also, petrols have added Benzene (anti-knock) - one of the nastiest carcinogens about. I'd take a well maintained diesel over a neglected petrol anyday when it comes to exhaust cleanliness. As always, complete combustion is the key. If all of the most harmful components of either fuel are fully combusted then you don't have an issue.Electricity isn't clean while we're using fossil fuels to generate it. Some seriously outdated concepts you have there. If all we had on the roads were EU5/6 compliant cars then the government would be calling the petrol models the dirty ones. I've just swapped a Golf 7 GTD for a Golf 7 R, mainly for thrills, but am under no illusions that the R is a cleaner car, or a quieter car. At 80mph the R is doing 3100 revs and the GTD is doing 2200 revs (both in 6th gear) - the R is noticeably noisier when cruising. Early days on the R's running-in, but a 29mpg average, compared with the GTD's 48mpg average - less CO2, less NOx, it has a DPF filter to get rid of the particulates, and I never needed to clean the exhaust tips. After a week's ownership, the R's inner 2 exhaust tips have a light dusting of soot - I think that tells you everything you need to know about emissions cleanliness between the 2 cars.I obviously didn't buy the R to save the planet.

A few of us did I'll just C&P from the other thread.... ;)For those … A few of us did I'll just C&P from the other thread.... ;)For those who understand lease deals: Great deal, right? Might not be a suitable car for you personally, but no denying the financials! Good work, have a gold star. Feel content that you aren't being completely backward in refusing to understand differing points of view.For those who DON'T understand leasing (and that appears to be a LOT of you): * This is a NEW car, not used* Depreciation on a new car bought outright will be MORE than what the lease cost is over 24 months on this car.* No registration fee to pay on the car's first year of tax* No VED to pay on new leased car* Used cars a bit older will need MOT* Both old and new will need a service!* Old cars ... ALSO DEPRECIATE! Good god -no surprise there, so don't ignore it* Buying a used car for £5-£6k requires £5-£6k of cash up-front (i.e. NOW!). That is money you need to either save, or tie up in your vehicle. A risk - especially if your valuation of your car is not what someone else is prepared to pay. It works both ways, however!* Leased cars (new, I might add!) spread costs out over the term of the lease. This is called cash-flow. This is fundamental to business and life in general. Smooth cash flow, means a smooth life. No bottle-necks.* Both new/old need insurance* Old car bought outright means as much mileage as you like, but increased likelihood of repairs required for incremental mileage* You can sell your used/owned outright car at any time. A lease is a contract. A contract is legally binding. They're not easy to get out of. Buyer beware.* Both cars can make use of GAP insurance.* Used cars are not the most recent model in many cases. Some people don't care and view cars as a simple tool. Others may require to be in a newer vehicle for work purposes. People have different wants and needs.Golden rules for everyone:If you can't afford the payments, don't do it!If you don't want a NEW car, don't do it!If you want to take the risks on buying a used car and the associated benefits of it being reliable and costing next to nil to maintain, before selling onwards, don't do it!If you don't understand, don't do it!Platinum rules for everyone:If it appreciates, BUY IT.If it depreciates, RENT IT.n.b. there are occasional exceptions to the rule. Cars are not really one of those exceptions.If you're still unsure:Think of a holiday. You spend £2000+. At the end of it, you don't get to keep the hotel to sell on. Nor the swimming pool, aircraft or airport. You have nothing to show for it except a tan if you're lucky. You have had the benefit of enjoyment.A car is not dissimilar. Lease deals are great for people who want new cars and don't want to tie up vast sums of cold, hard cash up-front. Plain and simple facts. Easy.If you STILL don't get it:Log out, and don't try and reply, ever, on a lease deal. There is little hope for you.tldr; these deals get hot for a reason. If you don't understand, put some time aside and try to, before commenting.

CommentThey're clearly cheaper to make, which is why they're sold … CommentThey're clearly cheaper to make, which is why they're sold cheaper. Yes they look nice when new but compare a 6 year old Skoda to a goldfish of the same age and it's clear which one was made using inferior materials. If they really were the same it would make far more sense to make them identical and just change the badge. Car components are costed to fractions of pence, and money saved wherever possible. Whilst engine and running gear are identical, cost savings are made on all components unique to the Skoda (body panels, dash, seats, trim etc) it is here where savings are made and quality suffers with fit and finish being inferior to premium car brands. I'm not suggesting that an audi will be hand built but it will be finished to a higher standard with tighter tolerances applies to components and hence they cost more.



Most of the savings gleaned from owning a Skoda are funded by the lack of development costings assigned to the brand. VAG has the Audi and VW brands taking most of that hit - they get the newer tech first generally. Also there's the advertising costs to consider, Audi advertise everywhere, they're all over recent films (generally getting wrecked in the latest Marvel films) - it all costs money that Skoda doesn't spend.

They don't build shoddiness into the car. With well designed parts - body panel gaps and the way they're put together doesn't differ between the marques within VAG. The right way to do things will always be more efficient in a high volume manufacturing situation, and therefore more cost effective. Do you really think that VWs or Audis are built with more fettling time allowed for the assembly workers (for all non-automated jobs) to get it just right, and the Skodas just get thrown together? Ridiculous. Everything different between an Audi/VW/Seat/Skoda of the same size and class is skin deep (body panel styling, dash plastics, optional equipment). Audi quite often uses a bit of Aluminium in their body panels (mainly the doors and wings, for weight saving rather than sturdiness), but as far as reliability and warranty go, Skodas generally rate higher than VW or Audi on satisfaction or reliability surveys - perhaps the owners have lower expectations, cause less of a fuss when things go wrong, or perhaps it's because they get the old tech which has been tried and tested?

I'm no Skoda fanboi, i've never owned one, but i've had a few as courtesy cars, and recently had a Skoda superb 140TDI courtesy car for a week. It was as refined as the equivalent Golf. I recently bought a Golf R, and spent a while deciding whether i'd rather have an S3. With only £700 between the 2 cars, the main difference between the 2 was if I wanted more standard equipment (Golf), or half leather seats and marginally more of the softer plastics lower down on the door cards, with a slightly different way of navigating menus. If I honestly believed that the Audi for what amounted for 2% more money was any better screwed together than the Golf then i'd have bought one in a heartbeat.

Best comment by far

Nothing against leasing and as with all ways of obtaining a vehicle they have their place, just do your research before deciding what is best for you and what you want from your vehicle and agreement, because if your circumstances change you could be stuck with a vehicle that is no longer suitable.

With regards to this particular deal there are some things to be mindful of.

Your leasing a diesel and its a Skoda - Your friends will say thats a wise choice of vehicle, its both economical and a bit less to buy than the equivalent Audi, VW, so 2 big ticks.

Then you tell them your leasing the vehicle for 2 years,so then they ask why did you not lease something a little more adventurous or something you would not consider owning, your reply, well it was a good deal over 2 years and its a diesel, they agree the monthly repayments are good considering its a diesel and it would repay itself over the 2 years compared to an equivilant petrol version once you factor in the price per litre of diesel v petrol and the mileage you cover, you then go on to tell them your restricted to 8k miles per annum and anything over would be charged, now they are really starting to question your logic and you start to think about the deal you have signed up to.

But then they say..............














































Well at least when you come to sell it the mileage will be really low and Diesels do tend to hold their value better than petrol models (_;)

That told me, I've only done 14k in my 2012 one.

I see you get the road tax thrown in. That's worth £360.

I would guess that this is down to an evenings number crunching/research and try to predict the future value of the vehicle in question, also add in the servicing and warranty costs. Ask what would the cars cost be every year, including the depreciation, new and second hand. Remember new cars don't require MOT for the first few years 2 or 3 I cant remember, that can put several hundred pounds on a years cost.
