Don’t swap after two years, you are just wasting money as the car will still be like new.
Why replace it?
Why not the cost to change is cheaper for me at two years rather than three given I own it and it is my money to waste.I quite agree, changing a car that is still within the manufacturer's warranty, makes little sense, unless the deal to change vehicles is a sweet one.
The only people who stand to gain anything, is the dealership, who will be able to sell your car at a high asking price.
We all get carried away, and lured by the charms of a lovely new model, but like a total MUPPET, i swapped my mint low mileage A1 for a brand new Move Up.
It was a direct swap, no money swapped hands, a direct exchange of my 25month old A1 for a brand new Move Up in metallic blue.
The deal was a decent one, a brand new car for my Audi, but the depreciation i suffered on the Audi was significant.
I knew the mark up on my Audi would be substantial, but i was happy with the deal, and the Move Up has been a great little car, ever so reliable, good on fuel, and maintaining it over the long term will be significantly cheaper than the Audi.
Stop selling them? that's even madder than VW stopping selling the Up GTI when they couldn't keep up with demand, they cant make the Jimny fast enough for worldwide demand and theirs a massive waiting time in the UK before you could get your hands on one, as has been said you could get a one new and instantly make thousands selling it on second hand.The Suzuki Jimmy is going to become even rarer next year when Suzuki stop selling them.
Again going back to my earlier post why didn't they put in the very economical hybrid as surely that would have sorted the CO2? nobody buys the Jimny as a performance car. Motor manufacturers baffle me continuously.The Jimny is being axed due to its high CO 2 output,why didn’t Suzuki think of that when they were developing the vehicle ?.
