My Mondeo is due to go back in March and I've started my search for the next car to lease. I am quite close to the Skoda Superb. However the Skoda dealer say they have no room for negotiation on the lease price. I've looked at the contracthireandleasing web site which offers some indicators of other companies. However, I've noticed a lot of the companies listed have the same prices and the same web sites. Are there any other leasing companies that offer competitive rates and good customer service you can recommend?

 

Note, I'm not looking to but second hand, or looking at PCP. I just want to lease a car for three years and hand it back.

 

:)

I found that if you want any options, PCP is much cheaper (actually even without options, for me PCP was cheaper) especially if you go through carwow, I've just got 17% off list on the latest purchase.

Interesting. I got a PCH and PCP quote from the Skoda dealer for the same car. PCH = £307. PCP = £490. I've always found PCH is cheaper than PCP, but even that difference surprised me (and the dealer!).

I guess it depends what you are buying and what the residual figures are.

I got a cracking deal on my Skoda, was cheaper just to buy it direct from main dealer. Got over 3k off the list price, then another 2k off for taking out Skoda finance which at the time was 0% interest rate

I really like the car and it handles really good but does need a little more poke top end

Brokers are much of a muchness. You might find this thread useful: https://www.pistonhe...=1663457&i=6020

Golden rule- chase the deal, not the car and beware inflated initial payments.

I can't spend more than about 10 seconds on her web site. I remember when she was on Dragons Den and thought she was odd then. Nothing seems to have changed. Other than the picture of her riding the rocket isn't on the home page anymore.....

You are probably right. But I think I have made my mind up which car I want. Even if I didn't go for the Superb, most of the cars on offer won't have the levels of kit that I want.

Leasing almost certainly isn't the best option for you then. I'm sure you won't listen though!

I'm willing to listen. But I've now had two pcp quotes. Both well over £100 per month more than pch. I have no intention of keeping the car longer than three years. Taking out a loan and buying outright and selling after three years will maybe clear the loan. So after three years I am in the same position as handing back after three years of a pch deal.

Have you got some numbers, bob?

Skoda Superb, L&K 190PS with rear view camera and metallic paint.

 

I got a quote from my local dealer for the 150PS version. PCH = £307 pm and PCP ~£490 pm. The 190 PS was £341 pm PCH.

 

I've had a quote from another Skoda dealer on the 190PS versionfor the PCP as they were offering a buy price of £27k (list price £32k). Their PCP quote was £460.
