VW Golf 1.2 TSI £12599 at Motorpoint

251
Found 25th Mar 2016
This is a better deal than the out going Astra deal posted yesterday. This is a brand new 16 plate and you are the first registered keeper.

The VW Golf 1.2 blue motion with all round electric windows, hill hold, auto handbrake, heated wing mirrors, special paint and the excellent DAB stereo with USB(album art) and hands free Bluetooth.

Bought one last weekend and the quality is brilliant. Mine even had car matts and had done just 17 delivery miles. Motorpoint were excellent and I had a new car within 1 hour. Only down side is you pay the first registration fee of £55 and the warranty is only two years(can be extended). Car Tax is only £30 for next year.

Bottom of the range hooky import with two years warranty.

Think I'd rather have the Vauxhall.

When people call Motor point should they ask for inthenameof or do you have a proper name?
It says all of them are imported vehicles. I don't know, but I think that affects resale values significantly

Are you serious... One of the best cars ever built and the price is insane...

6k off list and still has a/c although bottom end I'd have this over any Vauxhall!

When they did mk4's for under 10k new they sold like hot cakes but this deal is nuts considering inflation over the last 12 years!

Guess you missed the hooky import bit.
If your buying it as a car to use and keep then who gives a toss where it was imported from.
7, 8, 9 + years down the line when you sell it on Autotrader no-one will care.

From Germany through the proper channels.

My guess is Cyprus for these.

That's correct, unless it goes wrong and VW don't want to know or it's stolen or damaged and the insurance pay out a fraction of a UK spec model.

You get a years less warranty that's all but apart from that VW won't treat it any differently, it's a new car.

But the purchase cost is also a fraction of the UK Spec model...
If it's built for Cyprus, then quality control of the parts will be tailored for a warmer climate. I'm assuming this won't be too much of a problem, with the UK's mild winters.

Good point, You could get it mapped though.
Will be ex-lease (ragged) or import, ie inferior spec to UK models

maybe read description....brand new so not an Ex-Lease.
Yes it's probably an import but so what....

I got an Astra in 2009 from these and it was a Cypress import. Absolutely nothing wrong with these type of imports. Warranty was covered by Vauxhall. Saved a fair bit of the list price and eventually got a good price when I changed vehicle.
oops, Cyprus

How do you mean eventually?

They have other models as well. Im tempted to swap for an R.

Er, the VW scandal was for Diesel engines, not petrol ones, which the 1.2 TSI is.

Is there finance available?

Exactly this company is literally killing people with their emissions and conned many VW owners, yet some would still want one...unbelievable really.
If they are imported from Cyprus, be prepared for it to rust like crazy.
Good deal, but the headline on the listing should be adjusted to say that this will be an import.. Otherwise most people will assume that this is a UK spec vehicle...
We puchased a Nissan xTrail from Motorpoint, yes it was an import from Cyprus. Saved £8k at the time 8 years later £3.5k trade in and no import issues. Even spoke to Nisszn prior to purchase they adked for chassis details confirmed history and that the warranty was all ok.
What a boring looking car, VW have not move on at all in the last 10 years, year after year the Golf looks no different. And please someone tell me they are not wheel trims on that £18k car.

Serious question here...
How does someone tell it's an import without looking up the VIN number on VW's database?
not impressed....thumbs down!

It might be missing some key features of the standard UK spec - if it is missing the ACC system (that sees the road ahead and warns/brakes if someone in front jams the anchors on and you don't react as the gap closes) then you might find the insurance quotes significantly higher than a UK spec one. The MK7 Golf in UK spec is very well equipped, most other markets are usually not (even the German Golfs have less standard equipment). If you want to go for one of these, ask for the spec list and compare it with that in a UK VW brochure (or download from volkswagen.co.uk).

You'll only get 2 years warranty with an import. VW's standard 3 year warranty is universal for the first 2 years and dealer based the 3rd year. For the 3rd year warranty to be valid, the car has to be put in to a dealership within its intended market .

If I was a VW owner, I wouldn't give two hoots whether the car pollutes or not because at the end of the day, all combustion-engined cars do. And then electric cars, their electricity is produced via various non green methods before it hits the grid. No car is totally clean

The only thing I would care about as a VW owner is whether my road tax is going to end up increasing as a result of the recent findings.

Why would that be? All VWs are fully galvanised, no matter where they're intended for.
It's a parallel import. Should be made clear here yes. But there is nothing hooky about it as long as you understand the advantages/disadvantages. I have known someone who has bought this particular type of import from BMW and Mercedes for decades now, however they save big money rather than just a couple grand because they are not £15k cars like this is. You save the money outright, you accept the limitations.

You could probably haggle a good price that isn't much more expensive than this at a dealer though if you know what you are doing, or look at reputable brokers for UK spec. You make your choice.
Having previously worked for Motorpoint i would say that all their vehicles represent excellent value and the imports are significantly cheaper than UK cars. Sometimes the spec can vary slightly but when you're paying a fortune less than list price, who cares? With regards to warranty issues check at the branch but as long as the car is serviced and stamped then there should be no issues with the dealer warranty (oddballjamies talks absolute h*rse sh*t). When the car comes to be part exchanged in the future, the registration and mileage will be entered into the same systems to value the car and should come out with a good figure. Although I don't drive a new (or nearly new) car I would definitely recommend Motorpoint 100% to anyone who fancies a new vehicle. I no longer work there so have no vested interest in promoting them. There's always a lot of "experts" online when it comes to the motor trade, most of which have no understanding of the market and have never worked in the trade.

Do you know what "literally" means? Do you think that the tailpipe emissions from every other marque is safer?

The scandal raised awareness over the higher levels of pollution being emitted by all vehicles built by a wide range of car makers, which under real world driving conditions are prone to exceed legal emission limits. A study conducted by ICCT and ADAC showed the biggest deviations from Volvo, Renault, Jeep, Hyundai, Citroën and Fiat.
Im just sitting here reading the pollution butthurt comments and my vw diesel does not ever have a cat no more, 13 year old, clocked 180hp at the dyno :P

You seem to be very selfish.
I get a new car every three years. Ive had a Vauxhall Zafira, volkswagen Touran, Renault Grand scenic, Honda Jazz and nissan quashqai.

Only 2 of those have needed any work doing under warranty in the 3 years. The vauxhall had a faulty ignition barrel that burnt out the starter motor. Their service was excellent.

The Volkswagen went through 2 gearboxes!!

Guess which make of car i wouldnt touch again.

Quite right - possibly. It 'used' to be that cars destined for countries without salted roads had no underseal or cavity wax. Hopefully not these? Perhaps the recent purchaser could take a look......
