Let’s see what they are like in three years time? I wonder what the rate of depreciation will be?
I guess depreciation will find its own level as more come onto the roads. But I bet a 40k Astra depreciates pretty quickly too, and it’s is considerably more expensive than the Chinese equivalent.

And the Astra rates 99/100 in the U.K. car reliability tables. Best we close this discussion please .

However they still carry the same designation. Where are they manufactured?
They carry the same designation in the same way the Ford Mustang does. The original Mustang has zero resemblance to the 80s version which has zero resemblance to the current version in anything but name, styling and target market.
The 1990s V40 was actually a joint venture with Mitsubishi (the Gallant I believe), and I drove one from 1999 to 2002 when I moved to the 2nd generation V70.

Do people who lease their cars really care. Change for a new one.
Would it not affect your leasing charges? I've had high depreciating cars but not as new ones so someone else took the hit, and I bought cheaply. Viz Skoda Estelle, Ford Mondeo Gen1 and 2, Citroen BX16.

No. You won’t know that the chosen untested car is a dog until the end of the three year lease. Then it will depreciate rapidly and future lease agreements will climb. Chicken and the egg😉

However the current Mustang is very much like the sixties Mustang. The eighties Mustang looked nothing like a muscle car and was not as popular.

Not sure why you keep answering and quoting your own posts?

To be honest, I'm not sure what your question is? Your posts have been quite erratic and at times difficult to follow. Perhaps use a tablet or pc rather than a phone to make composing posts.

If your question is about the qualifications forum members have, then because the forum is anonynmised, there is no way anyone can verify what qualifications or experience anyone else may claim to have.

Just wondering why. I do not recall asking at any time for your qualifications as that is none of my business.
