Car Scrappage Scheme Boosts Sales...

Recommended Posts

This might apply to houses too, dropping the price i mean

Maybe we need a house scrapping scheme where the government pay the 40% deposit,

:lol:

Has anyone, or anyone you know, bought a car under this scheme ?

Did they get extra money off ? You can easily haggle 2K off a new car anyway.

The car scrappage scheme has simply brought forward purchases. Like everything else in our economy the future has been mortgaged for today. Expect a rather large decline in car sales soon.

Well I bought a little Toyota Aygo for £5.2k which I wouldn't have bought without the scrappage deal. So the government have definetly helped out the Czech workers who made it! :blink:

My dad had been looking for a new car but has been playing hard ball with the dealers and they're not playing... so he's not buying ... as simple as.

Are sales scrappage schemes? B&Q kitchens discount of 10% = scrappage on your old kitchen with no obligation to recycle it.

Car sales have primarily increased in the 'I' segment - small cars. There is ALREADY little or no profit in these deals so they cant lower the price.

Some car sales may have been bought forward - but not THAT many. There is still a mass of compnay fleets that will need to change vehicles soon as they have put it off and out it off.

The industry is in BAD shape - but not THAT bad!

Except that it's also made it harder for people to buy second hand cars by

encouraging people to get them out of circulation by scrapping them.
