Depends what you're buying really and at what price as the standard 30 days or so most retailers offer covers absolutely every reasonable complaint you might have - only had to use one once, for an older car anyway but it had a leaky radiator within a week.

I presume you have a website?

P.S. Bloody salesmen eh, you could have just said no trade in, no warranties :wink:



yeah, its a great website.. this is the address:

Pete - if you know about cars, what do you reckon to this deal, it's been around a while http://www.bristolstreet.co.uk/new-car- ... t-115ps-ac

?

I know it's an old model, a bit underpowered, basic spec etc, but the warranty etc look pretty tasty to me, as someone with a lot of kids' stuff to ferry round.

I've always been sworn against buying brand new cars but vaguely considering giving a whirl after underspending on some building work I just had done. My current model cost me a fair few quid to get through its MOT last time and is a bit small for us.

Well, we've got them at £11,995 including RFL and Lifetime Warranty, although its a little extra for metallic & white.

That price includes every bonus known to man.

We've got 55 left, when they've gone they've gone.

I'm not sure what a ''Vauxhall Partner Discount'' would mean to the price, got a feeling there may be a bit of smoke & mirrors going on @ Bristol Street, but if they are really doing them at £9999 you should seriously snap one up.

Last Zafira's were a more than decent vehicle.

Sorry - edit - just read your note back.

No, Exclusiv not a basic model, has decent spec (Expression is basic, easily confused) but make sure its a 1.6 115bhp VVT & not a 1.6 105

Do any of you lot (Yorks based) have advice on the best place to source a replacement car key? It will need to be cut and coded and I want to avoid the Ford dealer as the cunts charge a fucking fortune.

Funny you should ask that, I'm having to get another one this weekend. My car was bought off one of the mrs' mates, but it only had one key cos one of their kids had trashed the other. Now my kid has trashed the remaining one (ripped the rubber casing off so I can't use the fob), meaning I pretty much have to bite the bullet and get another.

£180 fucking quid :x

Personally, I think they should probably have dragged him out the car and beat the shite out of him, for a laugh.

i've used this place in the past. they're still not too cheap, it was something like £60 for a basic ford key without the remote bit, but is still probably cheaper than ford themselves.

Didn't think I was going to like the bloke at all but really warmed to him, as did the cops.
The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

I couldn't bare more than 3 minutes. Annoying cunt he is. They could have confiscated the phone by law if they had asked him to stop recording.

So no cheap way around the new key. Fucking cars, the cunt isn't even mine.

Only ever had Fords but admittedly that is a smart looking car, don't really know much about the Avensis but it is pretty.
