Some on here will know that I normally change mine and the wife’s cars before they get to 3 years old. But, for varying reasons including inflated new prices we’ve decided to keep,both until next year. However, I was contacted out of the blue by the “Renewals Manager” at my dealership stating I’ve been selected as a VIP customer by VW Finance for additional contribution (around £1500) towards a new car. I’m not naive and know this is mainly sales patter however the additional contribution is real. They seem to be doing this to obviously increase sales but also to get selected cars back into stock as well as encourage customers to change earlier than planned. There’s also a Black Edition weekend event on this weekend too. As I’m looking for a towing vehicle next, I may go for a look (albeit sceptically). Just a heads up really, as there are deals / incentives on the go for anyone who’s changing.
