I'm in the MY18 SE Sport that they offered two years ago and I have been in touch to renew on this. Keen to look at what will happen with lead times and handing my car back. Hoping they'll run the lease on for a short period to cover.

I just got confirmation of my order, I went for the auto as will be used for school run in the city for £103.20 per month I think auto is a worth upgrade, if doing lots of city driving. I got my order in Purley, London Skoda dealer as it’s my local dealer.

I got a price match at £4446. They can shape the 23 payments any way you want, so I deducted the saving off the deposit. Approx. 16w lead time.

Leasehub had this offer for couple of weeks now. My friend ordered one with 10K miles per annum. Excess miles are only 3.6p per mile, so if you need 15K or 20K per annum, it's cheaper to pay at the end. Expected delivery in November.

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.

f2raf

what difference does it make, over the term you give them the same amount anyway, i feel if i have abigger deposit then my ongoing commitment is coming out of my regular income, so much easier to manage. £109 a month is really nothing, go out a couple of times for a meal with you rmates you spend just as much

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?

volksdub

Just got told the same thing following them checking my car today.

support28

vw/Skoda are quite lax when checking for damage when returning the car. according to the lad who came from bca to examine it, they let you get away with more than any other provider

pgilc1

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.

Mada06

Come on, every single car that Skoda produce is of a high quality than the equivalent Ford, Vauxhall, Mazda etc Fiesta v Fabia - Fabia is the better quality car Focus v Octavia - Octavia is the better quality car Mondeo v Superb - Superb is the better quality car Yet you consider a Skoda to be in a group below Ford with Kia and Hyundai? What?

Hi, my Octavia vRS came from Simpsons a couple of years ago. The finance is through VW Financial Services and tax was included for the full duration. But you should always check rather than leave it to chance.

I had a black one - and a blue one a bit later on - did 16000 miles in black one in a year - pretty cheap motoring car was only £250 :) Couldn't agree more with regards to over-heating incidents, i broke down on the Runcorn bridge (twice) during early morning rush hour causing a large tailback and congestion - really, really sorry Runcorn people :( It did handle very well and was awesome for going round roundabouts and corners - just very, very basic inside - lol :)

szigmon123

A superb has more rear space then an s class Merc and a bigger boot than an e class. Don't base everything on the floor plan. Octavia is Mondeo sized in side

StormB

I had one too, garish orange complete with bodykit.. Plenty of overheating incidents, but it did handle well. Often used to get waves from 911 drivers in the know! I imagine theirs made it to their destination though X)

Rickardo

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)

johnnystorm

Just so we're straight your argument is that cars are nothing but mere appliances and frippery and badges mean nothing? While at the same time Volkswagen must be commiting financial suicide by selling a brand without cachet? You then somehow bring Brexit into it which I guess explains your disjointed thought process. Let's consider some of your other points, the ones that don't concern celebrity paedophiles that is. The brand is so "Toxic" (your fave word, eh?) that they are cheap and resale values are poor? Except of course Skodas have an above average second hand value: http://www.whatcar.com/news/vw-seat-skoda-and-audi-models-retain-resale-values-despite-dieselgate-scandal/ Volkswagen didn't get to where they are by operating Skoda has a ramshackle operation that would lose them money. It's clear that it's a successful member of their portfolio. I'm sure however if you give Wolfsburg a call and pass on your expertise they'll be incredibly grateful. Still it's a moot point anyway. Once the pound is worthless after Brexit no one will have any money to buy new cars regardless. But we'll have plenty of sovereignty and control to go around. Whatever they are.

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.

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).

dont.mack.me.off

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.

othen

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.

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.

cubed

My journeys are quite short on the commute. Hybrid is not out-dated at all! I think you need to see where manufacturers are going before you make a statement like that. Diesel is doomed in the long term.

monkeyhanger75

What's to go wrong on a DPF unless you're clogging it by only going to the corner shops and back? 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.

Rys_Ochodzki

The next model should be called Skoda Awesome - if it's better than superb. Otherwise it'll be Skoda Alright, Skoda Mediocre or Skoda Sh1tty...

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.

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 (_;)

I see that Simpsons Skoda are also doing the Octavia vRS also £199 per month (plus £1500 deposit)... £6077 in total or £253 pm all in. I think that's the best 24 month deal I've seen on that vehicle. Be quick tho, the offer expires at the end of the month.

CrazyBob

That told me, I've only done 14k in my 2012 one. Although I have started working from home so that may have something to do with it

termite

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.

good deal still like the TDI CR version

Haha, nae probs mate, I was a bit confused for a second :D mind you, doesnt take much to confuse me!! Especially before my morning coffee, lol

bigmaz

Aye, but I think its obvious that he isnt saying its cheaper than buying second hand, or buying new and keeping beyond paying it off :) I understood what he meant, dont think he needed to clarify.

My apologies bigmaz, I deleted my subsequent post whilst you were quoting it, and then wrote it better in the one above. Just in case you do wondered where it went :)
