Yaris 1.4 diesel!

Ive decided I'm going to lease my next car.

Just been and had a look at the yaris, looks nice and they do a driving instructor package, on lease and some ppn thingy but he's emailing me anout that.

It has a reversing camera, this puts me off a bit as you can't turn it off, but the guy said I could cover the screen. Does anyone have one of these, and is it ok just to cover it up on test?

This is the 1st garage I've been too and I am intending to go to every manufacter, except SEAT lol. So have a lot to consider yet!

Thanks in advance

Cat

Cat, you really do need to do your research on how to finance a car.   Dealers make lots of commission from selling finance packages which aren't always best or cheapest for the customer.    As well as looking at all the different cars, make sure you understand exactly what all the different payment plans are available.   
You could be  better off buying on a low interest HP deal than leasing or one of the other deals where you have to give the car back at the end of the term.

Also, on the subject of the reversing camera, I don't have one personally, but I know someone who has one on a Fiesta. As far as I'm aware, they're ok on test (he seemed confident), but it might be worth a quick check with an Examiner.

Re: Yaris 1.4 diesel!

I know of an instructor using new Yaris with reversing camera and no problems on test.

Re: Yaris 1.4 diesel!

I had a 2008 model which I've just been cut out of. If it weren't for that I'd still have it, it went on and on and on. All I ever bought were tyres and brakes. I went to replace it but didn't like the new one at all and bought a fiesta.

Hope that helps

Cat.  Read the small print carefully on all the lease deals.  Pence per mile over the agreed limit, temporary replacement vehicle,servicing deal, what's included (tyres etc), the arrangement for changing at the end of term, what you have to pay for in terms of damaged alloys etc.
Go through it with a fine-toothed comb, every word.

Good advice cat, neglect this at your peril.
