In Topic: Monthly Payments

25 May 2015 - 12:42 PM

We had a Zetec eco 1.5 on pcp over 3 years at £270 a month with a £250 deposit and 12k a year, we were told if we wanted to buy the car at the end of the 3 years we would have to pay just over 6k, we were also told to trade it in at 18 months, we tried to trade it in at 18 months and were told that there was not enough money in it and it would be better to wait until it was 2 years old. It was just over 2 years old and we got a new one on hp not pcp, same car but 100cc bigger engine, we put £250 deposit again plus our car and over 4 years its £342 a month. The car we put in exchange had no dents or marks and was really like new, it had done 18k of the 24k we were allowed and had all its services ect.

That was indicated but it was very good I am just hoping our new one will be as good as its 100cc larger engine, it went up to that from 67.2 after we had it for a year and it had done 9k miles.

I had a 2013 Econeteic 1.5 and I was getting 71.4, that was not going over 60 mph and taking it really easy.

I would say that they are a bit louder than the petrol but not a huge amount, we had a tdci before our current one and that sounded like a petrol with the big ends and cam going lol, the new ones are very good, when we picked ours up new I thought they had not put tdci in it because it was so quite, it did get a bit louder after 2000 miles though. Don't get me wrong I think that the Ecoboost engines are the future, small engine turbo ect good performance from a very small engine, not sure how they will last maybe compared to a larger engine but time will tell.
