Hello, Im finaly on my way to getting an astra. Going down to Glasgow from Aberdeen on tuesday to go buy. Trading in my Hyundai coupe + cash. My question is my hyundais tax is out, 6 months is 118 quid, im not too sure if the astra is taxed.
Ive had a wee look on the ugov site but its a bit confusing. Its says you can claim back money if you down grade your engine, so eg put a 1.4 into a 1.6 astra but it doesnt mention if you can do it if your about to buy another car??
It does mention you can get a refund if your selling the car, but again how would that work if im trading it in, cuz obv that would invailidate the tax for the dealer? Confused.
The reason im asking is because the astra 2.2 is 215 for a year, and the hyundai coupe 118 for half, so i dont want to end up paying over 300 quid to the government if i dont have to.
Anyone shed any light?
