    James, as we all know, cars usually come of the scheme, then back on with a higher AP. Let’s hope the reverse is the case with the Tiguan. At one point every second thread on the forum was about the Tiguan, now it rarely gets a mention. This is almost certainly due to the huge increase in the AP.

    So hopefully this time we see a reduction in the AP as it is a very good car but, on the forum, has been replaced by the Volvo xc40.

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.

    Sorry  Brydo   as  i  see it  Ap,s  is only  going  one  way  and  that is  up.  As  you  no  the Forum has always got  it,s  favourite  car  was  the  Tiguan  now  the  Volvo .  If  climate  change  is  upon  us i would  go  for  Jeep  Compass  Trailhawk.  In the here and now  i have  got  a two  month old  Audi  A1  with   162  miles  on clock .

    Wow. That’s a shame.
    On the plus side, there’s still 10 showing as available.

    If the Tiguan had been a lower AP when I ordered, I’d almost certainly have gone for one.
    And the Jeep Compass Trailhawk was actually another consideration but oof, that AP!

    Tiguan face-lift is incoming, expect an increase in price along with it.

    Oof. A good increase could send the ‘R’ towards the £5K mark.
    I’d have thought perhaps they’ll take it off completely for a while until the new car smell wears off the new model.

    We looked at The VW Tiguan and when I mean look it was just that, the salesman was so less than interested, no demonstrator to look at only allowed a quick view of a 2 year old sold car.

    Wife did not like the interior, maybe a fresh new car she would have felt different, the salesman told us he would phone when they have a demonstrator, he never phoned.

    What I really struggle to understand is that manufacturers are spending millions on UK TV advertising for really good deals, low or 0 percent payments, pay the deposit or both but seem to be ignoring motability one of the biggest leasing companies.

    I am under the impression the dealerships make more money on the finance than the actual car itself. I would imagine Motability only pays a flat fee ?

    It is probable that both manufacturers and dealers know there will be ongoing Motability sales no matter what, but in these times of economic uncertainty they are trying to capture discretionary customers by trying to tempt them into the showrooms with enticing offers.

    The low interest rates offered are indicative of the prevailing BOE interest rates and are again being used to tempt discretionary purchasers who in normal times may not buy a brand-new car.

    Plus, it gets cash flow into the dealerships from private customers paying non-refundable deposits. The fact they may have to wait months for their new cars is secondary to maintaining cash flow in a market sector recently starved of it for quite a few months but still had bills to pay.

    Simple economics in a recession basically.

    I know for a fact that the Government are concerned about the amount of profit Motability are making. I have it in black and white too, so this isn’t speculation.
