    PCP change in circumstances

    PCP change in circumstances 2nd Aug 17 at 6:57 PM
    Hi,

    I've currently around half way through a 3 year PCP. When I signed up my average mileage was around 6000 / year and while it was possible it could go up the dealer insisted I keep it at 6000.

    Due to a change in work circumstances I'm now having to drive to work, which is around 12000 miles / year for commuting alone, and the car isn't really built for motorway driving (1250cc Ford Fiesta petrol).

    I'd like to trade it in but I'm not sure if now's the right time. Curious to know what advice you could give me?

    Thanks

    I know that buying new cars is not moneysaving, but I love owning a car from brand new, and you're a long time dead.
    If you enjoy and can afford a new car then why not - as they say there are no pockets in shrouds.
