For a 45k car, not a glowing report.
Poundland do some good food now,
Looks like its going back into South Korean ownership, maybe the Rexton will be back on motability sooner than later?October 21, 2021 at 9:41 am in reply to: Hyundai Tucson PHEV Ultimate AWD on Motability £5k AP #167190
At present car manufacturers have little incentive to offer discounts due to supply shortages. This could affect AP’s in the short and medium term however there are many other factors at play too.
I think mine is 5%.
Crazy, at the start of the pandemic, 99.9. My private pension rises in line with the RPI, 4.9% but almost all of that will be swallowed up in increased fuel and council tax. The tough times, and not just here in the UK, are a reality check for us all.
Best tip, dont decorate!
Switching from manual to automatic should be a piece of cake.
At the moment we do not know what motability will do after April. All we can do is speculate which does not advance the discussions.
From memory with my X1 back in 2018, I think it was around 2 weeks, it has to go to a compound then transported to the dealer for PDI. etc.
I’ve posted this a few times but with no interest from members, so for one last time, if you have off street parking you will not get the government grant from April 1st next year. So if any of you guys have off street parking and want to make use of the £350 grant you need to have your charger INSTALLED by 1st April next year or you won’t get it.
I will depend on what Motability are prepared to offer after that date?
Hopefully the wait now will be quite short.
My uncle used to service mercs and BMW´s in the 60´s 70´s and 80´s and told me to work hard so I could buy one. I only ever considered leasing a C class privately, but my then Peugeot 406 drove better. I think as the industry goes electric we will see different leaders in the market.

i spoke with hyundai dealer and there are supposedly no free ultimates until march. dealers are going around trying to get them off other dealers’ orders etc. plenty premiums on way apparently.
That´s interesting. As far as private buyers are concerned, they are going for the Premium as it qualifies for the Government grant. Was also told order an Ultimate now and we´ll have it by December. That was last week, however!
An old acquaintance in London will only drive MB´s, on one occasion saying of a BMW, its the wrong badge. I have never owned a Merc, but have driven several as courtesy cars, including A, B, C and M class and was not enamoured by any.October 18, 2021 at 9:19 pm in reply to: Mid-size and compact EVs ‘more affordable’ than ICE vehicles #166994
I wonder if Motability are looking to expand the scheme? The thing is a “badge” is no guarantee of a quality project. I have never driven a Lexus, but the drive-train is shared with Toyota and the CVT gearbox is awful, as are, or were the multimedia systems, that said, all additions welcome. The UX does seem the only model to fit the guidelines and seems to lack sat na, an 850 option. Pizza is here!
Like others I have been a bit more a adventurous, but always maintain social distancing and wear a mask. The figures are now heading in the wrong direction again, and I think its likely, more than 50/50, masks will be compulsory again this winter.
The courtesy car is fantastic but it could have been even better. A R*x*o*!
A good car.
Logically they should be cheaper and easier to service.
Crimbo shopping. Presents. Bank transfers. Food. Whatever’s available.
“For that sort of money i would have an Audi in my driveway all day long.” Because you couldn’t afford to put fuel in it and drive anywhere?
You do realise that they make quite a few electric cars, no? Any which one of them i find more desirable than the Tesla. In regards to the car itself, i mean.. My wife called the ID3 interior “dentists waiting room”, the Tesla is just void of anything interesting. Yeah, tech is good, but any other “rival” car is put together considerably better, even the ID3 (which is subpar/cheaper compared to other VWs). If i put £60k on the table, i expect considerably more than a car that looks as generic as this, while basically having no interior design at all. It looks slightly more acceptable in black (the interior pictured is £1100 extra), still not great. I’d take an Ionic 5 over this any day of the week. It’s better equipped (can’t get ventilated seats in the Tesla, nor matrix LEDs, nor blind view cameras etc), it’s better put together, and is actually the better looking car (albeit subjectively). In terms of range, it has 17 miles less range than the long range model and is marginally slower to 60 (4.8 to 5.2 seconds). 17 miles, less equipment and 0.4 secs quicker to 60, if that’s worth more than £5000 to you while knowing that you can stick your finger in the panel gaps, absolutely you do you. I’ll take the Ionic 5.
There was a Tesla 3 parked up a couple of weeks back, the interior is like marmite. Not to my taste at all. In reality we spend virtually all our time inside the car so it is a space which should be desirable.
I will wait for availability on one of the streaming platforms.
Numbers have dipped by 6 to 1153, I wonder what has gone?
