Monthly payment = £213.54
Contract Term = 24 months
Annual Mileage = 8,000
3 Months Initial Rental = £640.62
Processing Fee = £180.00

I make that around £5,945.58 all-in but feel free to correct my math.

Seems like an ok deal to me.. thinking of getting one!

I'll just get in here and state that because the depreciation over 2 years on this car (according to What Car Depreciation Calculator) is far more than the cost of leasing it for 2 years, I think this is a good deal for anyone was wanting a new one of these to keep for 2 years.

So I'm voting hot, and this is the last time I will visit this thread.

i too like the look of these and im actively looking at lease deals
alternative prices here 5k-20k miles options from £2400+24*£83.98=£4415

Have you checked this or just assumed? And have you not taken note that other mileage options are available? Sigh.

Good deal OP, voted hot.

And so it begins!

Waiting on comments about buying second hand

now that you mention it spring, you could get a BMW 318 diesel with 50k on the clock for that price and you dont have to give it back :P

if anyone knows of any deals for the vRS i would be interested?

penguini - i also drive more than 8k miles a year but additional cost still makes this attractive

Unfortunately for me with my mileage (15k pa), a couple of added accessories but no service package it's nearer £11k....having dealt with leasing companies before you need to factor in main dealer servicing so at least another £2k over the 2 years.

I can buy a car which will do most of that and be mine after 2 years (Dacia Duster for example) with no worries about mileage & able to use non main dealers for servicing .... in fact the Dacia has most of the extras I specified as standard

£1k a year servicing.. really?

£1k a year servicing.. really?



Servicing, tyres, paintwork maintenance on 15K miles a year yes....around £1k a year ....have you checked the prices of a full service at a VAG main dealer....my passat cost about £700 every 10k miles

The cost of a 2 year service plan for this car at Skoda is £479.

Worst car I owned was one of these albeit the older 1.9pd version.

Longest it ever managed being away from the dealer from new was 3 months, final straw was when the turbo went 120 miles out of warranty and initially Skoda refused to pay a penny but after many many phone calls they eventually offered to pay for parts - just the £1400 labour cost for me to pay!

Shame because it was a great car when it ran and at least I got to drive plenty of loan and hire cars for a bit of variety....

You can also get tyres that fit for less than £50 a corner ( admittedly they may not be the best tyres) and in any case wouldn't you have to service and buy tyres for any new car?

Based on how many miles pa ? 10 ? 12 ? .....on my mileage it would need 3 annual services over the lease.....add in probably 6 tyres at around £90 each & no other breakdowns requiring main dealer attention over the 2 years

On lease you cannot fit cheap tyres....you are supposed to replace to factory spec

On your own car you can fit what tyres you want & use non main dealers for servicing......I pay less than half main dealer hourly rates at my garage & fitting compatible parts my overall service costs are around 1/3 main dealer

"my passat cost about £700 every 10k miles"

How? On long service intervals it doesn't even need servicing every 10K miles.

Service intervals on my Passat were 5k, 10k, 20k & 30k

During that time it also required 4 new discs, 2 sets of brake pads, 2 new cracked suspension springs, (none of which are covered under standard service costs)

I also included the cost of tyres within servicing costs

How long ago was this?

Since 2002 VW have been using long life servicing and I have never known a VW needing servicing at 5k and myself and family have had them for 25 years now.

Variable is usually every 18k and costs less than £200.

Did 84k on my Bora on original discs and pads and my mate got 120k out of his on his Polo GT. Tyres last 12k+ so for an 8k pa lease you are looking at 24k which is one service at circa £200, 4 tyres circa £400 and thats it.....less than the price of your one 'service'.

Costs which you would incur on any car anyway.

why lease a skoda?

It was a 2008 Passat, the schedule asked for an oil change service at 5K & the terms of the lease were that it had the services every 10k miles (minimum requirement on long life service)

If you read all my posts you will see my figures as I said were based on 30k over 2 years & the costs are those I incurred. On lease you have to abide by main dealer recommendations on service

The reason I will never private lease again ....I got around 10-12k on my tyres....so over 30k miles work that out yourself at almost £100 each (I replaced 10 not 12 at just under £900)

The VW service schedule wouldn't have said 5k. I have a leased Megane for work at the moment. Currently on 17000 miles with no service. It will be getting serviced next week at 18000 miles. As per the service schedule.

I did read all your posts. This deal is for a 8k -pa lease and you quoted silly prices for servicing on what is a great deal. Mind you, you can get a Golf R for that money when the deals come up.

How is 2k over 2 years & 30k miles silly when it includes nearly 1k in tyres ?

How many people who would lease a car do only 8k a year ? Have you used the calculator to see what your basic cost would be ?

I currently have a lease through my employer......unlimited mileage, servicing included, insurance included on a Volvo XC90 & only pay £470 a month

To be fair 50k on a BMW diesel is only just nicely run in. I've seen BMW oil burners with 300k on the clock

Because its irrelevant to this deal, that's why.

You need to adjust your driving style if you go through that many consumables in 30k on your car..

My lease is unlimited mileage, servicing included, insurance included, unlimited fuel and I only pay £0 a month towards it and pay £97 to the HMRC BIK

FWIW I nearly leased the Golf R deal that was on a few months back and thats only 5k pa.

8k a year is a good price point for a lease. People buying a car doing 8k a year or less are just throwing money down the drain. As is shown in the deal, the depreciation of this deal is more than the total cost of lease.

Maybe if it was a BMW or a Merc then the HUKD police wouldn't be so hot to flame it.

This is so funny to read, cracks me up every time love reading these lease deals...madness!!! I have owned a Yeti and Fabia Vrs fantastic value for money cars built well and as for service costs at a main dealer not bad at all, the most hateful car owned was an audi a3 - ok the car was nice, but the dealers were shocking, but still nowhere near the prices quoted above even with the dsg.

People doing less than 8k a year might be better buying a cheap car......I think the Dacia range starts at less than the total price of this lease & some dealers are offering 2 years 0% ...... even if you sell after 2 years you will get at least £3.5k based on current sales prices.....so 2 years unlimited for £2500

I will just wait those 2years when some sucker buys it on lease, and than sells to me for the same 6k and i get to keep it forever.

Doubt you would get a private lease Octavia with 16k on the clock for £6k .......you might get a company lease one with 50-70k or more on the clock for that price

But its a Dacia.....a poor mans renault. I do over 2000 miles a month in a Renault after a 15 year driving history owning exclusively VAG group cars and the Megane is truly awful....I looked at the Dacia when I was waiting in the showroom one day...oh dear. They are cheap for a reason.

We have about 25 of the Megane's at work and have yet to come across one person who actually likes it.

You wouldn't be able to sell a Dacia privately, you would have to trade it in. Friend had a 2011 1.2 Clio last year she couldn't sell at way below book and ended up trading it in. By contrast I have just sold my 2010 Octavia VRS CR TDI with 60k on the clock the other week within 6 hours of advertising for the asking price and my inbox and phone was none stop and I thought I had over priced it (£10K). This also needs to be factored in if you are buying a car - Sale ability. Its no good saying its worth £x amount after x years when nobody wants it. IT is only worth what someone will pay for it.

Enjoy your Dacia! I'm hopefully getting a Hyundai i40 in the next couple of months or will chose my own car depending how my negotiation skills are with my boss! Then I will decide what weeked car to get!

See my post above! Residuals are strong on these....and this is an estate, a diesel and a 4x4. a 2 year old 16k model would be at least £15k to buy, and in all reality a lot more for a Skoda used approved.

I had a Duster while my car was in for a repair after a numpty in his Audi hit the accelerator rather than brake in a car park....to be fair (top of the range £15k) & it was superior to any of the other manufacturer models in the same size range....they offered me a Mokka & I took it back after 10 minutes...now that was an awful car....if I were buying privately with long term ownership in mind I would go for that...7 year warranty as standard

Also much nicer than my bosses wife's Yeti

You would need the 7 year warranty....just like you do the lifetime one on the vauxhalls.

German for me everytime. I just need to decide whether to go new or classic.

Last cars I owned were all Citroen....AX, BX, Xsara & Picasso ......all were very reliable none were new & cost nothing more than basic servicing costs....father runs a Picasso & has from new as he did with his last one & before them he had Peugeot 406 & 405....never had any reliability issues with any of them...again never a breakdown & most expensive cost was replacement cam belt
