What car are you looking for ?

If can catch it, see if you can watch a repeat of Fifth Gear on Five.

They were saying that different dealers offer different discounts for the scrappage scheme. Do you have a short list of cars you are looking for..

I know not a popular car but what about a Hyundia? comes with a five year warranty which is transferable to a new owner if you come to sell it.

It also depends on what you will be using the car for... I don't think you can beat the Jap cars for value.

Jster, consider what you need the car for, as that will affect the range open to you. As Main Man says the Japanese cars are very good and come with many things considered as extras by other manufacturers.

Kia's is the way to go. Good and relian;e. Have had three and not one o them has needed any extra TLX Just fot my 04 plated one through MOT nothing needed doing on it. It is a basic Kia Rio LX. It was financed through Blackhorse via Kia. Everything went smoothly and of course when Ipaid it off early no hassles.

I like the Focus but Ford have put their prices up again.. There is a Kia I have seen on TV that looks like an Audi A3... Can't remember the name of it..

If you are thinking about a Peugeot 308, what about the citroŽn C4

Also look out for any finance deals 0% etc.. Over four years that could be a saving.

I think I was hoping too much to be able to afford a Focus but think I may have found a good second best.

Strange thing happened yesterday. My mums car died and not worth repairing so now she is going to have mine and we are going to use hers for scrappage deal. (Fate maybe?)

I have been looking at the Kia range and quite like the Cee'd

http://www.kia.co.uk/New-Cars/Range/Mid-Sized/Ceed.aspx

Will be going to look at the weekend. Really hoping for a 0%, no deposit deal.

Hi over the last 12 years I have had both KIA and Hyundai both very reliable though they do not hold their value as trade in. Both very reasonable for service cost with a good warranty package.

I haven't figured out how someone with a 10 year (or older) car can then go and scrap it to buy a brand new one?

The reason people buy older cars is they cannot afford anything newer. Then suddenly they have the money to buy a brand new one, even on finance, when the govt gives an allowance which most people would negotiate anyway.

I would love a brand new car, unfortunately i cannot afford it, even if they give me £2k off.
