So the person who bought a new Evoque convertible and traded it in for another Kia after 5 months ownership didn't lose their shirt to an equal or greater extent than the £7k Seat?

Evoques aren't so desirable as to sell for the same as or more than you paid (despite the long build wait), even to sell it again at RRP, you'll have offered them 80-85% of the sticker price in resale.

Just because they (presumably) bought cash with their windfall doesn't mean they didn't lose a bundle rather than being in huge negative equity on a finance plan.

No, not at all, you made the point I was trying to make far more …No, not at all, you made the point I was trying to make far more complicated.I did say the figures and scenario were fabricated, if you read it again.What I was aiming to say is that people are opting for the car that they can't really afford (the Evoque should probably be £400+ if the Kuga is £299) - they achieve this by having a much bigger GFV at the end, resulting in them having to hand the car back and walk away with nothing, rather than saving up a bit of equity along the way. This is also the kind of situation that puts people in a worse state of neg eq too, if they try to escape earlier.It's telling that you use the phrase 'may not be worthy of driving the Evoque' - there is nothing special about them, as you may expect from something built in Merseyside (no disrespect to the people of the area, but it's hardly Maranello, is it?).

There aren't that many leases around (lots of offers, but few cars actually available per offer campaign) , and you can spot them a mile off - they're all red or white (cheap/free paint option) and on the standard hideous wheels. I don't really go for optional extras as you lose your shirt on them (and the Golf is very well equipped as standard), but when the standard wheels look so ugly, I felt obligated to specify the 19" Prets (which do look very nice), as have nearly everyone who bought or PCP'd rather than leased.

Adding an option or 2 onto a lease really jacks the price up (as you're paying the whole cost of them over a very short term), and on the used forecourt I have seen 2 tier pricing on the R, with lease specials going for at least £2k less. There hasn't been deals like that lately on the hatchback R. I expect to get £18k p/x for mine at 3 years or £15/16k private sale after 4 years (I optioned the 5 year warranty, so a private sale at 4 years still comes with the confidence of a year's warranty for the next owner), given current retail used prices for non-leasers. Will still be slightly cheaper than lease overall, and I got my Prets, 5 year warranty and metallic paint in there.

Mine will be 3 years old in May, and I am not in the least bit tired of it.

There is nothing special about the Evoque, but you imply that if you can't afford to buy the £40k car, you shouldn't be entitled to lease it for £300 a month (if you can afford £300 a month). It will almost certainly be a better car than the Kuga, but not £16k better (which only really matters if you are buying it).

So you are saying that someone who can afford £300 a month may not be …So you are saying that someone who can afford £300 a month may not be worthy of driving the Evoque, because they cannot afford to (or choose not to) dump £40k into the car and buy it outright? You're highly unlikely to see a £22k Kuga (or any other Ford) hold 60% of RRP after 3 years to be worth £13k. Your example shows a £16k vs £11k loss from RRP to GFV costing the same monthlies. Would only happen if the Evoque was on 0% finance and the Ford have an APR of about 12%, in reality it is the other way around - with Ford/Vauxhall/Citroen etc. offering 0% APR to mitigate high levels of depreciation with no interest cost.When you PCP a car like a VW/Audi that has a high GFV and 5-6% APR, around 1/3 of your monthlies are going on interest, but with noticeably lower depreciation to mitigate.People will always believe they're getting a good deal when they can PCP a £30k car of one marque for the same monthly cost as a £20k car. Most of the time they will be getting a better deal - there needs to be something more to justify the higher RRP, better equipment, better performance etc. A prime example of this even within the same marque was when the Golf 184ps GTD could be had on PCP for a fiver a month less than the 150ps GT TDI because the far higher GFV mitigated the much higher RRP.If we keep being offered these cracking lease deals, traditional buying of new cars could be dying a death and used prices will be forced right down to make it cheaper owning a 2 year old car rather than leasing a new one at a bargain price.

Of course not, I agree completely, but;Dealers/manufacturers want people …Of course not, I agree completely, but;Dealers/manufacturers want people to at least buy their first car from the brand - repeat business probably being seen as a bonus.So, people are out looking at cars on a Saturday afternoon, they have say £300 per month to spend.They are faced with two options;A £22,000 Ford Kuga at £299 with a GFV of £11,000 or a £40,000 Evoque at £299 with a GFV of £24,000.They often think 'why should I drive a Ford when I can have a Range Rover for the same money', and choose the latter.(these are fabricated figures and an example scenario naturally, but that's pretty much what happens)At the end of the term, the Kuga is worth £13,000, so £2,000 towards the next car, the Evoque is worth £22,000 so[Image] It's pretty much a case of people wanting to drive a car that in reality they cannot afford, and the 'premium brand' manufacturers helping to stitch them up.

Not always. EDT can have the same concentration as EDP, but be made with lighter notes making it 'lighter'. Concentrations are not set in stone by law. It is at the discretion of companies/perfumers to decide what they put on a box. It is worth to not to overlook EDT.

Yes you're right, misread the OP. That argument was flawed on my part.I …Yes you're right, misread the OP. That argument was flawed on my part.I completely agree. I've looked at a couple of these lease deals, and when I compared the cost of buying the car with the best discount I could find from brokers, and looked at the GFV from PCP deals and assumed bottom trade in value in 24months, the lease still came out considerably cheaper.So yes, for the purpose of the site I completely agree, this deal is hot as it gives one of the cheapest ways to drive this brand new car for 8,000 miles over 24months.My responses were certainly off piste, and not really related to the deal, but a direct response to the comment I replied too. Appreciate that it's OT so deserving of your remarks...!At the same time, I still think there is scope for discussing the financial arguments about leasing as a whole, and whether a slightly used version of the same car can offer substantial savings. I appreciate your comment fully. If we did this on every iPhone and TV deal it would never end....! But, I think cars are a little different. You are not paying to own it for starters. You do not get heavy restrictions on how you use the TV or iPhone secondly, and thirdly, a slightly used version with a 2yr warranty is so so similar to a brand new one (lease cars tend to have a bit of mileage and other registered owners) that I think it's not altogether unfair to draw this direct comparison? I guess the question is, what are you getting extra for your money by buying 'brand new' vs buying slightly used, which I guess is part of the whole 'good deal' thing? Perhaps this isn't the place for this discussion though..!


"lease cars tend to have a bit of mileage and other registered owners"

I have never leased but my understanding is that the lease company is the only registered owner and the only mileage is delivery, particularly those cars that are not in stock at time of order, so as new as any other?
Yawn
There are pros and cons for both purchase and leasing. I looked at this recently after my son leased a 1.0 ST Fiesta, same engine as this. It goes very well. However the Focus is a bit heavier and not sure if I would buy one. However Nissan are putting a 1.2 litre in their Qashqai and look at the size of one of theirs. Small turbo engines make these fly but only time will tell how reliable they are.

My wife changed her car in August and we looked at the lease deal as it meant we could have a new car instead of one up to two years old. We were looking at a 66 plate Vauxhall Mokka to buy and compared it to a two year lease but in the end we decided the best deal for us was to buy it outright and not lease. My wife does about 5k a year and at the time the Mokka was about £200 per month and I think about £1200 up front on a lease deal. We decided that as we are both older it would be best to buy. If either one of us lost our jobs at least we cold get rid of the car compared to having a lease stuck round our necks. Remember that it is harder to get jobs sometimes when you are older. Also your guarantee of health is less too and as we found out recently, only 2 months after buying the car my wife is going to have to give up work due to ill health. She may never drive again so imagine the predicament with a lease deal. As we bought the car cash we can easily sell it if we decide. We discussed lease deals with three different sales guys and when we mentioned the subject of being older and approaching retirement years they all agreed that purchase was the best option. From a depreciation point of view at least with a lease deal you have fixed costs for the next 24/36 months but with purchase it can be a bit of a minefield. We lost £3100 on our 12 plate Fiesta purchased in 2014, part exchanged exactly 3 years later so I don't think that's bad all. We know we will lose more on the Mokka in the same timeframe as it's newer and cost quite a bit more to buy than the Fiesta.

TBH, I don't see the point of leasing unless it is 2yrs - the whole is the feeling of a continuously new car with none of the worries involved. Whilst MoT doesn't kick in until 3yrs and warranty will last that long, it loses its appeal against either buying new or buying used at 3+yrs (esp as 3rd year depreciation is much less), and the monthly cost is rarely much better.

No way these are 600w


​Lol probably 600w PMPO rather than RMS that would make them 150w as PMPO is generally 4 times that of RMS.*just found out they are actually 30w rms .

Flight, car and RV now booked.

I was surprised how cheap a one-way car rental from Vancouver to Calgary is via Canadian Affair canadianaffair.com/

I ended up booking 15 days car hire for £420 including extra driver, insurance and 'free' tank of fuel, so only £28 per day. Even better, the car is from Avis and they have a depot just around the corner from the Cruise America RV depot in Calgary, so I can drop off the car and pick up the RV easily on the same morning.

All I have left to do is book hotels, but I've got the rest of the year to do that, so I'll wait for some Expedia or Bookings.com discount codes.

We will have a couple of nights in Vancouver before collecting the car and then heading over to Vancouver Island for a few days and then making our way across to Calgary.We are renting the RV as per your post, bur going for the 'normal' style RV (same price) as it allows access to the rear living area from the drivers cab. The one you suggest doesn't have that facility, you can only access the living area via a back door, so if you want to stop for a quick brew it's not as convenient (particularly if there are bears involved!)Our return flights are with Air Canada rather than Transat. If you have any more suggestions regarding our itinerary (only booked the flights so far) let me know, but thanks again!

Thanks for the advice
can buy new ish fiesta for that much and can get minimum half that back after 4 years use.
Agreed, not much point leasing this over a 4 year term.

Only about £3k to £4k less than buying outright, and you'll still incur the same maintenance costs. New model is imminent and these are being sold off cheap now to make way.
I'd sooner pay slightly more for 2x 2 year leases of this - hotukdeals.com/dea…542

Four year leases don't appeal to me, what if you circumstances change after two years (for better or worse)? You'll still have two years to go. Plus, if you don't like it, you are stuck with it.
IMO you're better off with the Focus 2-year lease. It's a higher spec ST-Line 125, but more importantly it only works out a little bit more expensive per year.

By the time you include the fact you will need to MOT this, possibly replace the tyres, you end up paying about the same for the focus which is a better car all round, and you'll get to change into something fresh in two years.

If you want a Fiesta (I own one and they're fantastic), there's a new one out soon so there'll be better deals than this soon I reckon

My Seat Ateca is a 1.0l with 113 bhp and weighs 1205kg.

The Ford Focus is a 1.0l with 123 bhp and weighs 1280kg.

I have done 1,000 miles so far in my Ateca and am averaging 50mpg. The mpg does come down when you accelerate up to speed but once crusing at speed the mpg shoots back up.

If you are one of those drivers who tries to get everywhere as fast as possible and constantly accelerates to keep as close to the back bumper of the car infront then these types of engines will not suit your driving style.

Also these engines are no good if you do a lot of short stop/start journeys in cities.
Only had more power when turbo kicks in? Putting a hair dryer in a car that size and weight then compensating it with a turbo defeats the whole point of it being energy efficient hence worse mpg Average than a 2008 1.6 FACT yes still gets 3/4 stars average most reviews BUT look at Pre ecoboost reviews

My point is the turbo kicks in constantly as it's struggling Not driving like a loon not just my opinion just google ecoboost reviews or ask a mechanic ! this was a huge mistake by ford to put in a famliy car I loved my focus and miss it but I hated my ecoboost and most people online say the same


This is getting dreary now, so this is my last comment...
No, I've not owned both. But you started out by saying the ecoboost was 'vastly underpowered'. Direct quote. I responded by saying it had more power and torque than the model you compared it to. Then you shifted the goalposts and referred to MPG. I pointed out that any car has poor mpg if you have a heavy foot.
Now YOU may have found that in YOUR driving style, you found the newer engine gave worse economy, but that's not the experience of most.
And no, I don't think a 1.0 litre engine is a bad idea. It's called engineering. Can achieve wonderful things when implemented correctly.
If that 1.0 was not the right engine for you, then it's right that you changed, but for many (probably most) then it is a perfectly good compromise between performance and economy. Want economy? Drive lightly, change early, and slow down. Want performance? Put your boot down and enjoy, but watch the fuel gauge.
You simply *don't* have to drive it everywhere with the turbo spinning. If *YOU* do, then it's down to your driving, or your car was faulty. Otherwise how can I be getting the economy we are getting?
If you don't want to get with the times, and alter your driving style to adapt, then that's up to you, but as time goes on, you will find it harder and harder to find naturally aspirated engines with the go you want.
And I still struggle to understand how you think a 100 HP 1.6 focus is nippier than a 125 hp focus, with stacks more torque...
Oh, and last comment:

It doesn't really matter now as the account is no longer available but I believe it is because if you have a Cash ISA product with one provider it can be classed as a "split ISA" and so you can have multiple accounts but they are all part of the same ISA product.
Again, I thought the rules on ISAs was clear, only 1 new Cash ISA per Tax Year.

That's what was being discussed.

You are better off investing in an ISA from Zopa when they finally launch.
