​Who with please. Sounds like a solid deal

I suppose leasing one is cheaper, since if you come to sell one in two years (that you've bought outright) you'd lose a lot more than £5328 out of the £22000 price tag

I think the Astra is a decent car and have a lot going through our office! You would never pay £22K for this, its probably an £18K at any dealer.

Most Vauxhalls are best had used, this a year old (with the 6 speed auto a bonus) would probably be a nice runner for 5 years for a family. Cheap to service, few problems and no major work required in that period for the service stamp make this a sweet used buy.

But would you lease one? At this price I think you could get something with a better badge for the monthly payment.

Nothing wrong with an Astra, but they are just as bog standard and dull as their competitors.

Frustrating thing is, Slap an Audi, Merc or BMW badge on it and it will automatically become the best car on the road.
I look down on people who have to rely on imported cars instead of supporting their own country's manufacturing base. Not exactly like we're short on cars to choose from either, plenty of UK made cars to choose from (albeit all are foreign owned). One of the factors in my last new car purchase was where it was built (Halewood).

Made in UK. Designed in Germany and the Opel equivalents made in Poland.

And this is a really poor deal.

You do realise where most of the components of the Astra K come from, right? And besides, Vauxhall have quietly dropped the "Made In Britain" bit from it's publicity as a lot of cars for the UK market are coming from Poland, including this one. I believe all Astra Sports Tourers are built in the UK though.

Smarter? Then explain please the following:

Why the hell would I want to pay £422.13 extra over the term to pay for the one service I need over 24 months, which would cost, at a main Vauxhall dealer, at most, £200?

Original Poster

You are obviously confused. The debate about maintenance or not is a personal choice about risk mitigation. If you need 4 tyres in 20k then all of a sudden it's not a bad investment plus peace of mind of course. Where you are confused is posting a deal that is not a comparison against this one. Maybe your non-comparisons come from experiences in the gents ?

No confusion whatsoever. Why would you need a set of tyres after 20k miles? Unless you are driving the car like a complete lunatic and racing off the lights, there is no need for a new set. And even if you needed a new set, you'd be able to source a set and have the required one service for less than £422.13

I believe that to be your problem, where you believe this to be a good deal and getting upset when some corrects you with factual information. I would not pay a premium of £422.13 to have maintenance. It's a valid comparison to show.

Factual information is that my quote contains maintenance and yours does not (why is this so hard for you to comprehend?). So you have a problem dealing with the fact that I am right. You appear to be disappearing up your own orifice don't you ! No doubt this is a frequent occurrence. I am upset, you are right, but not because I have been corrected by factual information but instead with fictional information. If someone puts up a deal on here for a yacht and you counter it with a lower price for a canoe then this website has no purpose any more. Pease go and find me a lower deal for this car with maintenance and remove any personal preferences from the debate. Can you do that? No, of course not.

I don't need to provide a car with a maintenance option. You still refuse to accept that paying £422.13 extra for such an option is beyond extortion


Original Poster

You obviously have a lot of spare time so make it count and find the same deal with the same options for less. You have avoided this completely and simply stated once again that the maintenance is too much....avoiding the facts. You are assuming only 1 service in 2 years and no other costs....good luck with that. I am not a gambler so £20 quid a month is a cheap price to pay. BTW, fictional because your faux argument is based not on facts. It may be sub-zero but that worries me not. I know that on HKUD people vote based on the make/model etc not the deal. Then you get these people that troll the boards looking to tell everyone the deal is bad based on either prejudices or bad data. You fall into the latter.

Given that I have been leasing for over a decade and have had both 18, 24 and 36 month term leases, I know that all I would need to comply with my lease agreement is one service in a 24-month term lease. Why would I need more than one? Should I do the two year service when I hand back the car? No...

Partially correct. Unfortunately in your case, this deal is sub-zero because it's a poor value deal, demonstrated ironically by another Astra deal and the one I posted above. Smart people would realise that they would be better off going for the non-maintenance option.

You avoided the fact that adding maintenance is a personal choice and that sharing a deal without maintenance is not like for like...so in short you try harder and even if you do you will fail....as you have proved already. You are the weakest link.....goodbye.

I've got a new Astra, 1.4 turbo SRi leased through Jet. When I test drive it, I loved it, I still love it, nice power, comfortable, Apple CarPlay, enough toys, however there are two things that I've discovered and heard about;
1) After 1500 miles, my front suspension is creaking horribly. If the radio is turned up (which it always is for me!) then it's fine, but once turned down, I hate it...
2) Reading the forums (astrakforums.co.uk), after 6000+, the engine develops a major fault. The turbo begins to splutter around 3000rpm, that's the beginning of the end. Then you take it to Vauxhall for a compression test. Cylinder one is not compressing well, then the piston cracks and shreds in the engine.

The points he mentions are nothing to do with maintenance but are warranty issues, all of which can be rectified whether you buy outright, lease via PCH or PCP with or without maintenance.

This is a great deal at £4k for a car with most of the bells and whistles. Excess mileage fee is 7.21p making it a great deal to go for the 5k miles initially.

I went for the Elite Nav and just ordered through Jet. It includes the 8" touchscreen (vs 7" touchscreen), coloured display on instrument cluster, shark fin antenna and upgraded steering wheel. Only £6 extra per month.

The free metallics are a bit poor. I thought black looked old, maybe because of the bumper plastic. Don't know. I liked white best but it's a cost option. Chose Cosmic Grey.

Hoping I get this before 1 April where the cost will go up by £20/month after the tax change. I want to sneak in a 17 plate before then!

To be fair I would have gone with the maintenance option. Ive had a Astra elite 1.4t through jet since sept 2016. I have had nothing but problems with it
Electronic park brake failed the day it got delivered. Intermittent radio problems, where it crackles and when u use the indicators u cant hear the sound the indicator gives off.
Worst of all ESC fault where it goes into limp mode while driving reduce power and reduced steering assist. First time it went in I had to pay out of my own pocket £10 per day for a replacement corsa the dealer put me in. they had it for over a week and couldn't recreate the fault asked me to take it back and monitor it.. this June gone has been faulting so much and randomly loosing power while driving. It was getting dangerous. Took it back to Vauxhall and been there over 3 weeks now. They created a technical case with Vauxhall and they agreed to put me in a hire vehicle at Vauxhalls cost. The test the car daily sometimes faults and sometimes doesn't but Vauxhall seem to be out of there depth with fixing the car I have told the lease company I don't want the car if Vauxhall can't fix it. I am not going to risk mine and my family's safety driving a death trap.. will never have a Vauxhall again.
