New Year… New Car…

After my very Lucky Escape, just before Christmas, and getting the upsetting news that they might right my car off.I decided I best start thinking about a new car.

Before all this happened I was happy to have another Clio but I have now changed my mind about that.

My second choice was the Peugeot 207.

So at the week-end we took ourselves off to Marshall the Peugeot dealers in carCambridge.

Daniel Tranter, their sales executive looked after me and got me all the  information I needed.

A new Peugeot 207 Urban, diesel, will cost £10,945,but the delivery time is 10 weeks . A huge length of time for me to be with out a car.

If I am not fussy about color they could get me an Urban S in 10 days, costing an extra £700 but  they would split the difference in cost with me. 

To do this would  mean I could not afford the Alloy wheels I have dreamed about for years.

Now if they were to throw in the Alloy wheels I would be up there now signing on the dotted line….

If your reading this Daniel ….  you know my number….

Or can anyone else better this deal….

    Hi dw….. at the end of the day i was too scared to try carquake did not like the idea of handing over all my money before i even got to see the car.

    Have not yet got my new car… if your braver than me do let me know how you get on. It may change my mind about using them.

    I didn’t have a good experience with Marshall’s. A few years ago, I bought a Metro, it was almost new, just a few hundred miles on the clock. Within a matter of weeks the engine seized and they offered to replace it with a reconditioned one. I wasn’t very happy about this. Fortunately, the motoring correspondent at the Cambridge News pulled rank and called Marshall’s and they promptly gave me a full cash refund. Otherwise, I know I would have been stuck with it. These salesmen totally ignore women.

    The funny thing is, when I moved to my village, who should be my neighbour two doors away but this very same salesman. Talk about a small world.

    The Peugeot looks great, this was the one I had in mind when I recommended one on your previous post about replacing your car.

    Strike a tough deal, and good luck. Happy New Year and happy motoring too.
