    What does everyone else make of this?

    I own (well my family owns) a P reg Fiesta Ghia and we are interested in getting the £2000 off a new car. However, similarly with others, we are unsure how we can afford to pay off the rest of the car even with the £2000 and extra discounts given by certain manufactures.

    The fiesta is running, but it may not pass it's next M.O.T in February. We had originally planned to save up money until just before the M.O.T to afford a new car but if it ends in October: We are left with a £350 car that will probably break soon (it has a few times before...) and then we are stuck without a second car. We don't another used car... we have a bad history with used cars...

    it's ashame, but i don't think the government should put more into the scheme. It's no reason for the car companies not to still give their £1000 off.

    Makes it more difficult to afford the car though.

    I was under the impression the scheme was going to be allocated extra funding because it had been such a success.
