This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is the mid spec SE and the much better TSI engine. Aircon, DAB, parking sensors and a reasonable infotainment system. Also not French! Not clear if this is the 2020 model, or the 2019. Will post when I get the answer.

The Fabia here costs the £2.5k more for equivalent spec (Dacia comfort, TCe 90) because it's fundamentally a much better car in every department. Ride and refinement, handling, build quality, engine, cabin, reliability etc.

You'll probably lose similar money on both cars over a two year period. The Fabia will likely hold up better for longer than that though. It'll be muddied a bit by the fact both the Sandero and Fabia are being replaced by all new models in the next year or so.

In reality if I had only new Sandero money to spend I would just buy used anyway. A used Fiesta, Fabia or Ibiza are simply far superior to the current Sandero.

Wow, jd power have gone down in my estimations. The day I believe a Peugeot is more reliable than a Lexus (not even included in the results), Toyota or Honda is a long way off. With the exception of Hyundai and Kia it almost feels the table has been mistakenly in versed.

I travel across eastern Europe a bit and have a friend with a decent sized taxi company out there. They used to buy primarily Skodas because they are cheap in Czech Republic, Slovakia where they are built. Fabia estates commonly. Then they had a few Dacia Logans because they were initially cheaper.

All the Logans were nothing but trouble. Scrap metal after a couple of years and 120k-150k miles. Went back to the Skodas again because they would last double the mileage and age no problem and then still get sold on afterwards!

I mean it's hardly surprising and a lot of people won't do that mileage but it did affirm the difference in build quality for me.

The picture shows the "Colour Edition" not the SE in the deal

Good luck
Good car heat
Works out slightly cheaper if you go through Carfile and take out the finance for £750 deposit contribution from Skoda;-

carfile.net/buy…tml

£12,369.60 - £750 = £11,619.60
Worth no more than £8k, you could buy a proper car for the price.

If people stop buying new cars, you will not get old car and will end up buying new car

I bought a 2019 Fiesta because I was fed up of my Golf MK 7 breaking down with stupid faults such as Turbo Actuator Arm which my sister's 2016 Audi A1 just suffered from. Common fault? Seems like it. £250 on average to fix. Then something else would go wrong the clutch and handbrake release starting messing up so I ditched it for £6K and got a bloody expensive fully loaded Fiesta ST Line X for £17.5K! lol I'm crazy in a financially bad way. I just hope it lasts, it has every toy on it I need anyway.

I'm a Ford fan anyway. Blue collar hero. I found myself admiring a mint Mondeo ST220 the other day Damn they were great cars. It's another Q car Ford that will probably be worth solid money in 10 years time. Not Cosworth money but I bet decent money.

MIne has 140PS, goes alright. I have a Mitsubishi FTO so that's what I use for going a bit faster. Yes the ST220 is a great car I was looking at those the other day saw one for £1500! was tempted.

As long as the FTO is the manual The Puma 1.7 with the unique Yamaha engine is another one. Forgotten car.

20 years old now. Get in on the ground floor while good ones are under £2k. Solid bet values are going to rise gradually.

Sadly no it's a first gen Mivec GPX with that Fuzzy Logic Auto. The Puma is lovely car I've driven one, great to drive. There was a Williams 150BHP version as well. Suffers from bad wheel arch rot like the 1st gen MR2. The new 2020 Puma hmm don't get me started!

The little V6 engine is an absolute peach but the gearbox is just......the worst thing ever lol. Guy I used to work with had a manual conversion on his which was a decent sized job. Totally worth it. It was a really good car post surgery.

The Puma was a stupendous car with that engine. I had forgotten it won Top Gear's car of the year in 1997. I just glanced at some now and someone wants £3k for a average spec 2002 model and 70k miles already. Values will rise. For sure. The Racing Puma is extremely collectible and will be worth a bomb.

I've had the FTO nearly 7 years. Needs about £600 work on it now. Prices have stayed low but I can see them rising.

I don't care, not worth more than 8k. Even mazda 2 1.5 ist under 10k pre reg. If you read those moto magazines you'll see they are biased towards german cars (when new, but not so much when used). Be more critical, there are better alternatives out there.

Fair point about the German bias of motoring mags. Flick through the adverts of any issue of any mainstream motoring mag and it's not difficult to figure which pipers are calling the tune i.e VAG Group, Merc and BMW. Nevertheless, whilst the Fabia might not be your cup of tea (nor mine either tbh) IMO this deal does offer decent value for money for those who wish to buy new and just want a functional, reliable and economical box to get them from A to B. Yes, it's not as cheap as it ought to be but that's the UK market in general for you.
