Volvo issues vehicle recall over fire risk

Nearly 70,000 Volvo cars in the UK are being recalled over a fire risk related to an engine problem, the manufacturer said.
 

Ford has announced that it is introducing a new scrappage scheme to help boost sales, offering customers £2,000 towards selected new models.

The company claims that when it last offered a scrappage scheme, between 2017 and 2018, more than 25,500 older vehicles were taken off the UK’s roads.

Any make and model of passenger or commercial vehicle is eligible for the scrappage scheme, providing it was registered on or before 31 December 2012. It also must have been owned by the buyer for 90 days or more prior to scrapping.

Buyers must order a Ford vehicle before 30 September and register the vehicle before 31 March 2020.

   

The saving can be used towards most of Ford’s current line-up of passenger vehicles, with the exceptions being Ka+, Fiesta Trend, all Zetec models, Mustang and all ST cars (Fiesta ST and Focus ST derivatives).

It can also be used against a range of the firm’s commercial vehicles, save for the Transit Connect and Ranger Raptor.

The Car Expert checks the fine print

  • This offer is a part-exchange allowance, for selected used cars part-exchanged against selected new cars.
  • Your current car can be from any brand, but must have been first registered no later than 31 December 2012.
  • You must be the owner of the part-exchange vehicle and the buyer of the new car (same name and registered address).
  • You must have owned the old car for at least 90 days, to stop people buying an old banger for £200 and then getting a £2,000 part-exchange allowance for it.
  • You must order your new car no later than 30 September 2019 and take delivery no later than 31 March 2020.
  • This offer can be used on top of any other offers from the dealer, manufacturer or finance company.
  • The offer is not dependent on you taking any finance package or other products.
