IIRC it's 0 to 60 is just under 10 seconds. Seems reasonable for the money

I absolutely don't care.


So why comment?

Looks a decent family sized car for the money, 115Bhp is plenty for everyday driving.

We see so many of these rental plans advertised here that it is hard to know what is a good deal and what is not.

With this one the cost is £4,334 to rent a £17,195 car for 2 years and 20,000 miles. That works out at 25% depreciation, which sounds reasonable until one realises that the new car would not cost £17,195, but probably at least £2,000 less (I negotiated £6,000 off my current Superb estate when I bought it new 4 years ago, so I think this is a reasonable assumption). In that case the depreciation is about 30%, perhaps that is still good? My current Skoda has depreciated to just about half its new value in 4 years, so perhaps a 30% loss in two is okay?

I'm rather thinking aloud here. I've always bought new cars for cash previously - and generally been able to save around 20% compared to the manufacturer's price (the exception being my Porsche, no discounts there!). These days so many people seem to be going for rental deals like this one, so I'm wondering whether I should do the same when it comes to changing the Skoda (or perhaps I keep it for a decade and amortise the cost over a decade).

My conclusion: I still don't know whether this is a good deal or not (either compared with other rental deals or buying new) - so I'll sit on the fence and not vote yet.

Size means nothing though! 115Bhp is plenty, I bet 0-60 time is around 10 seconds. More than adequate unless you are a bit of a boy racer.

These 1.0L triple cylinder motors, in the 115 bhp, go far better than you'd expect. You've obviously never tried one.

I did - that show was presented by a moron who went against his own principals in leasing a brand-new MB.

Why would you expect damage not to be charged?

I'm relatively new to the leasing thing... but recently been on the threads for leasing and wondered whether it is better to wait until q4 for a better deal than this? Personally I think this is quite a good offer.

I have handed back three lease cars and have never paid a penny. You do see newish cars with big dents in them driving around and you think "why did you not claim that on your insurance?", so I would agree that these type of drivers should not go for a lease. Or if you live in an area where you know a new car will be deliberately damaged, but for most drivers this will not be an issue.

Then you'd know the same car is available for £300 less elsewhere...

I know this is a little like telling someone who wants a cold sandwich that they are doing toasted sandwiches half price however people may not know that you can get it's bigger brother. In my opinion a much better car the Superb for a reasonable rate too.

This is only FYI and not in any way a criticism of the posters deal.

Skoda Superb SE Tech 2.0 diesel I know - but it's a lease) for £206 per month £615 initial rental (24 months x 10,000 miles) £5,628 total.

Yes, i know, who would have thought more money per month buys you a bigger car, again just an FYI.

One of these high emission 1.0 Turbo GDI engines.
I look forward to when people realise the fact air hasn't become any cleaner by switching from Diesels to these.

Yes the wear and tear guidelines account for small imperfections. Running a bill for £1000+ like he suggested would to me indicate the car has been treated very poorly.

They are leasing the car, it goes back after 2 years. Do you think most people who will get this car will care? I'd like the petrol Superb instead of the Diesel I have. Nothing to do with emissions, the petrol is simply more refined. However, the lease is cheaper for the diesel, so the diesel is what I have.

Indeed as per your previous comment.. that wasn't quite my question though. 🤔

SORRY PEOPLE - just realised it's 8,000 per year. It is £205 per month for 10K

Should have checked. I got the same car from them with 10,000 for £206 per month last year. So they do popup.

The guidelines aren't legally binding. You'd have to chance it that you have a lenient assessor when you come to handing the keys back. Having dealt with ex-company lease cars before i know some assessors will pick up on every detail then hand an invoice to the company.
Some are more lenient though like a Passat was missing some trim and had a cracked rear light cluster but it diddnt get charged for.

Good deals come now and again, not because it's the end of a quarter or what not. Best when a car has come to the end of its production cycle or there is fleet of twenty odd cars in a specific spec that need shifting. The X-Trail deal posted earlier is one such example.

I said non-complaint... Not everyone has an EU6.

What is absent in the "propaganda media stories" is the true face that in the last six months, used diesels have dropped in value about five per cent more than they would have done normally. I wonder why that is!?

And they must be patting themselves on the back for running an effective propaganda campaign. Maybe they could start printing 3 Bed semi's are bad for the environment so house prices will plummet?
