Best manufacturer reductions


Daewoo is celebrating its sixth birthday since arriving in Britain by selling off its used car stock at prices it claims are more than [pound]2,000 below current market value. A T-plate Leganza SX registered in 1999 with 10,000 miles on the clock is marked down to [pound]6,495 from [pound]8,595. An S-reg 1998 Nubira CDX estate is being offered for [pound]5,895 - a saving of [pound]1,600. Savings on other W-reg models, such as Matiz SE and Lanos SX, are [pound]500 and [pound]1,000, respectively. The company says the age of a large proportion of the cars available means they are still within Daewoo's three-year warranty period.


Mitsubishi is offering automatic transmission - normally costing [pound]1,000 more than the manual version - at no extra cost on the Shogun Pinin three-door model, with prices starting at [pound]13,495 for the entry-level 1.8 Equippe. The company is also introducing a special, low-rate contract hire scheme that works out at [pound]10 a day on the L200 4-Life pickup which is priced at [pound]17,048.83 (excluding VAT).


Nissan's zero per cent finance programme has been extended both in terms of the number of models it applies to and also the length, in many cases, of the repayment period. Similarly, Nissan's personal contract purchase plan (PCP), Preferences, is now available at lower rates available on more models.
