Just for comparison, I lease my GTI for 3 years for little over £8k to then buy it outright this year for £16k..
Heat for the OP in posting consistently poor lease deals on HUKD. COLD for how bad it is !
freezing my fingers...
I would suggest getting an independent report (AA etc) all being well compile a dossier of other information that point the finger at the fact that it is an inherent fault with the vehicle. Armed with all of the facts contact the BVRLA and take it from there! MM
Cheaper to do PCP over 48 months- at least they will pay for 3 years servicing and a MOT. Leases are only good for 2 years- generally you don’t need to pay a penny apart from a service.
