    Went to view a coupe turbo before....

    Was at a garage.

    Car was up for £9995 which is well overpriced and said it had 51K also but i went along for somthing to do


    Astra has a brand new engine and turbo because the seals on the turbo went and ****ed upthe engine and it got changed under warrenty at vaux.

    Said he would give me £3500 trade in for my astra which ain't to bad then he worked out the 'Figures' :roll:

    Came back with £6530 somthing left to pay because i got the 12 months extra warrenty.

    Now get this....

    For 48 months it was £210...Right.. I got home because i was me and the GF were going somwere so i just said i would think it over.

    I got out the Calc and divided £6530 by 48 and it comes out as £136 ish

    I then times £210 by 48 = £1080 :shock: :shock: :shock: So it went from £6530 to £1030 which is even more than the price of the car in the first place!!!!!!

    ****** cowboys.

    If a complete engine is replaced, don't they have to reset the clock? It should be back at zero and not 51k.

    Also, the only finance ever worth taking from a car dealer is on a new car for 0% finance! It was only because of that deal I could afford my car. Otherwise the APR is often way up in the 20% area. You would be much better phoning one of the major loan companies like Lombard etc, and get something more like 7.9%

    Yeah but alan, surely you don't expect interest free finance !
    Especially on a second hand car.


    Usually best to shop around for finance for a car.

    No the milage shouldn't be adjusted as the car has still done 51K weather it is on the original engine or not. The running gear is all the same.

    why not just apply for a bank loan that way you can pay the loan off early & not pay any interest on the outsanding balance also with a bank loan you will pay less APR or even try direct line or similar their rates are good.
