Found 14th Nov 2014
You read it right, a brand new VW car for three years for only £90 a month. Amazing deal! Retail on this model is over £8k.

Cost breakdown
Initial Payment of £960
35 payments of £59.99
Documentation fees of £180
Mileage is 5,000PA

Official figures are 62.8MPG combined so expect around 55MPG in real life.

It's a basic spec car but you still get DAB radio and all the safety features of the higher spec models.

I thought the last Up deal I found was good, this one is unbelievable! Get on this quick as like the Golf R deal I can't see this lasting long.

Credit to karlie88 and Gx909 for posting this on my last deal.

UPDATE - excess mileage is 3.6p +VAT per mile.

Thanks for sharing on the previous deal.

I can't see a cheaper way of getting into a new car for three years, it's a stonking deal.

Question for those who know.

If you do this deal and say have insurance which pays the market value in the likelihood of an accident what would happen if they pay say the 3 year value of the car to the lease company or is it a different insurance.

That's what GAP insurance is for! The GAP will pay the insurance company the difference between the insurances value and the outstanding finance!

Any info on fees for going over 5000 Miles PA?

with the number 3 would have changed to number 2 at the beginning
I would have ran for it.

milage 5000pa is very little. I bough a tiny corsa 1.0 and in 8 months already done almost 18k miles. unless you walk most of the time this deal isn't best of all.

Average UK mileage for private cars is less than 8,000 a year, that's all types of cars, filter it down to small city cars and it will be less.

As for doing 27,000 miles a year in a petrol Corsa, you should've bought a diesel.

Buy a banger, at least you can park at the front in a supermarket car park....

Great deal, thanks OP

This is the best thing about driving an old shed. Park where you want and don't even look for parking dents when you come back to it.:-)

Leasing a car without insurance?

That's like a car rental company saying you need to get ur own insurance, weird..

Do car park dings in doors come under damage or general wear n tear?

You'll need to have it MOT'd before handing it back too.

Do all the people who are so happy with old bangers not care about road tax cost, fuel economy, repair costs, reliability and most importantly safety?

Great deal. With regards repairs handing the car back, I am on my third lease car and as long as you treat it like your own car i.e. don't smoke in it, get minor things fixed, you will be fine - treat it like a rental car trash the alloys, damage the internal cloth etc then you pay.

I've had a look on a few lease car sites and got mixed results. It seems to depend on the handover date, if the MOT is due before that date then yes it's needed, after or the same day then it isn't.

Even if it needs an MOT, at 15k and three years it should pass and MOTs aren't expensive, paid £27 for my last one (main dealer) and my partners was £14 via Groupon.

I've not leased before but probably will when my car is due a replacement, currently still under warranty so no rush.
I like the thought of not having to worry about huge unexpected bills, wear and tear is fine as that's expected and planned for and no hassle when the lease runs out, you just hand it back.

Handover date will be 3 years after receiving it. And 1st registration would have to have been done beforehand. So a 36 month or more lease needs an MOT. I've never been asked to provide one on a 24 month lease but always on a 36 month one. But as you said the miles are so low it should fly through it.

We have this car. Very little power but amazing in terms of fuel economy. It is saving us a fortune!

Yes they do, also come with a free transvestite and a fully woven, non tangle, nylon wig, buy one, you know you need one. Also there is an offer of a free SOH, with every banger bought.

It's less than depreciation would be if you bought one new.

The majority of new cars in this country are purchased on finance (PCP/HP/PCH) and are never really owned, just traded for the next.

Rather have a nearly new car and do as many miles as I chuffin' like in it.

Every mile you do in your own car costs you money upon resale in depreciation. Worth asking the lease company how much extra it is per mile and compare.

Your nearest shops are 50 miles away?

just under 14 miles a day - guess it depends on length of your commute and weekend / evening usage etc.

Bit of a daft comment 18k is well above the norm thats over 500 miles a week! Plus it makes no difference if your car is a 1.0 or 3.0 18k is 18k

After you lot return the cars they go straight to auction. iv bought a ex lease car and the owners were a bank and a leasing company. was used only 3 years

Good deal but not for me. I would rather take a bank loan of £3300 and buy a second hand car which, I can keep for good few years. For eg u can buy a 5 years old 1.3cdti vauxhall with £3300. Keep it for 5 years and then sell it for probably £1300. Happy days

Our second car is 14 years old, it does 5 to 7000 a year since we got it 11 years ago, has gone through every mot except the last one without spending more than £40 on it, until 2 years at I hadn't even changed the oil, new brake pads and that's about it. it starts each time with no issues, parked it in the airport car park for 6 weeks twice in the last 2 years it started first each time no problem. I get 35 mpg. Sure it may not be as safe as a new one but at the time it was a safe car and ultimately doing that amount of miles at the speed I do it will be safe enough. And the big thing is when the car was bought 11 years ago it cost just two grand could get about £600 for it now but it will keep going I am sure.

Problem is people today especially the younger ones, God I feel old, want new don't save like we used to so leasing us a good way of doing that. But if it was back in the day you just got a banger, you fixed it yourself and it was still your pride and joy sh those where the days.

what car do you drive?

Good cars - I would go for either the Seat Mii or Skoda Citigo though, as same car, and usually cheaper.
I'd put down as much of a deposit and use a 0% on purchases credit card, and then switch to a 0% balance transfer, saving towards clearing it in my own bank accounts, none ofthis mileage nonsene, and it yours from day 1.....but leases suits some people.
The only thing that stopped me is there cars are only 4 seaters! Hyundai i10 has 5. If that doesn't bother you, then I cant fault it if you want a city car...

Nothing wrong with old bangers if you buy with your head..

Our 2nd car I use purely for a 30mile round trip commute daily, it's a fugly 10yr old Astra 1.7DTI has done 70k miles from new and returns a genuine 60-65mpg day in day out. Renowned in the used trade for it's economy and ability to live on too high miles.
cost me £1200 2 yrs ago and has cost me nothing but the price of 1 tyre, an MOT and an Oil & filter change since. I've Probably lost about £200 in depreciation. No the Tax isn't as cheap (or free) as most new cars but at £100 per year isn't too bad.

As for as safety it has ABS, Driver/passenger airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and a 4 star N-Cap rating.

Dont buy a 5 year old 1.3cdti Vauxhall unless you want the risk of some serious bills.

Ive just sold one. 65000 miles and immaculate.The clutch was gone.£500. Last xmas spent £750 on new DPF valve, crank sensor and fuel pressure sensor. Bought it for £6500 3.5 years ago nearly new. Sold it for £2500 and after adding up all the costs its cost me FAR more than this deal.
