Small print could block cars with three month waiting lists

New car buyers looking to cash in on the 2k scrappage scheme incentive could be scuppered by small print that excludes cars with a delivery time of more than three months.

Special order cars like the new Ford Focus RS could be excluded from the scrappage scheme as the delivery time exceeds the three-month limit due to its high demand. Other models may also be affected due to the surge in demand for more popular cars that will delay the production of special order vehicles.

At present BMW, Citroen, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes, Mini, Nissan, Renault, Ssangyong, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo have all signed up to the scheme in which all cars in the range are subject to a 2k discount when trading in a vehicle that is at least ten years old. Half of the money is put up by the manufacturer and the remaining 1k is funded by the government.

Some dealerships are already reporting a huge upturn in business, registering hundreds of interested parties looking to exploit the discounts on offer. Hyundai claims the scrappage scheme proposal has increased interest in its cars by 400 per cent.

Representatives from the Retail Motor Industry Federation will meet with government officials tomorrow to discuss the finer details. The scheme is due to come into effect later this month.


...although Is good to see the 2k split - I thought it was funded by the government 100%

Well, Fiat have signed up to the deal as well, offering the Panda for 4,995 (with the 2k added after handing ur car in) and Alfa is basically Fiat, so dunno.

My Alfa is exactly 10 years old, and I know my dad seems to be linking me to newer 147's for Sale..almost as if hes hinting at something...

Two grand isn't enough? You greedy shits. 300 million pounds is going towards this scheme. There's so many things wrong with this on every level. frown

Not quite - you get 2k taken off the price of the new car.

This still means the dealers can set the initial asking price.

Still think its a pretty good incentive - if you dont like it, dont do it...
