Nissan has unveiled a part-exchange offer to compete with the scrappage schemes on offer from numerous other car manufacturers.
Unlike many of the other schemes recently announced, the Nissan offer is an additional allowance over and above the part-exchange valuation of your car. The part-exchange vehicles will not be scrapped unless it is the most economically-viable option.
Nissan is offering up to £2,000 part-exchange allowance on selected new cars, in addition to any other dealer/manufacturer/finance company offers. The offer only applies to certain grades of Nissan Micra, Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail models.
Nissan has gone a step beyond other manufacturers, however, and has a specific offer for approved used Leaf models (despite new Leaf models not being included in the programme). An additional £1,000 part-exchange allowance is available for used Leafs, and is also supported by a low-rate PCP finance offer.
Nissan’s offer is only valid for this month, which means you need to order and take delivery of your vehicle by 30 September. Most other brands’ offers are running until the end of this year.
The Car Expert checks the fine print
- This offer is an allowance over an above your car’s part-exchange value, for selected used cars part-exchanged against selected new cars.
- Your current car can be from any brand, but the first registration date (shown on your V5C registration logbook) must be no later than 31 December 2009.
- 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 and take delivery by 30 September 2017.
- This offer can be used on top of most other offers from the dealer/manufacturer/finance company.
- The offer is not dependent on you taking any finance package or other products.
