    this is a really good deal for a top spec Toledo.


    the car is similar to the Skoda rapid, but better spec.

    £12k looks a good price to me.

    But a list price of £20,610?
    I presume the equipment tally is high.

    There seems to be an easy £4K of discount available for a brand new one

    I dont know why manufacturers dont put more realistic list prices on cars.

    1) Because they have to have an RRP
    2) Why do people put a price on a house?

    Not a criticism of your comment, just a thought.

    I can understand a bit of movement but 20% is now commonplace.

    Likewise, with your house analogy, you tend not to be able to negotiate the price on a new house. Its generally a fixed price (plus extras). A preowned house / car, then yes, its down to agreement between what the owner thinks its worth and what a buyer is prepared to pay.

    A "good" car could be something at £1,000. It doesnt have to be expensive.

    If i was looking a hot hatch and had £1,000 to spend then a Clio 172 would be a good (great!!) car.

    You dont have to spend a fortune to get a good car. Likewise its subjective.

    That's odd as we did negotiate the price of our new house, successfully.

    there maybe more arriving, but the other dealers ive looked at are selling them at £12995.


    this dealer told me they had bought only 10 to sell at this price.


    they had already sold one before I visited. they have now sold a further 4 in about a week.


    so someone isn't worried its a SEAT.


    I was just lucky the dealer was within my "distance I'm prepared to drive to look at a car" range.

    you still havent answered why you keep asking people to "quote me" I thought most on here just posted stuff to help others

    i thought by posting the deal hear i was helping people. i could have just gone and bought the car and not said anything about it. i was asking people to mention where they saw the post so as to get some browny point with the dealer, never know maybe he'll give me some matts? there again probably not.

    In fairness, this is a budget car that isnt that great dynamically.

    Whilst there is a Skoda equivalent, there is no Audi or VW variant.

    If you're just looking a car to take you from a to b, its a good price given its brand new and a 3 year warranty.

    I suspect the Toledo is close in DNA to the Audi A1.
