Residual values

Post by Craigc » Sat Jun 20, 2020 12:52 am

Well today i looked at changing my Velar, hearing there were some great deals out there, and after over 20 years of owning Landrovers , It’s the first time I’ve found myself in negative equity, I know these are abnormal times , but wondering what everyone else opinions are???

Agree with your sentiments , I was looking at a couple of RRS in Feb, cars are still available now at roughly the same price as in Feb but the residual of mine has dropped significantly since then with only about 300 miles added to my car !

Noticed the same. The equity in mine seems to have evaporated.

Interesting! (And slightly depressing!) When I bought mine on a 4yr PCP last year I was told the residuals were high so in 2-3 yrs time I’d get a call from the dealer to look at a new car/deal. I’m guessing I might end up having mine the full 4 yrs then If the residuals have dropped that much!

Hopefully once the economy fires up residuals will rise!

That’s what mine told me, hoping in 6 months things will have settled down and prices will be back to normal, glad that I did mine on PCP, because at this rate I’ll be glad to had it back, although that would be a first and very expensive purchase as have always had equity in the past.

I’m just over two years in on a four year pcp... they wanted me to pay £7.7k negative equity in order to swap for an evoque 😆

That's quite a worrying depreciation.
Maybe some of it is caused by 'contributions' by Dealerships to get new car sales up?

Residuals on used cars will drop as dealers slash the prices on new and nearly new stock post lockdown and entering recession.

Such is the nature of car equity - things may stabilise at the end of the year - but will drop further if electric car and diesel scrappage schemes take off in 2021-2022. This is for all brands - BMW, Audi, Porsche diesels too. :(

No finance manager could have foreseen these events even at the end of 2019

'Such is the nature of car equity' That's a quote that makes me laugh. Unicorns spring to mind. :D

I also reckon that they greatly over-estimated the Guaranteed Future Value on the early PCP deals, expecting the Velar to be far more in demand than it actually proved to be. The market has decided three year-old Velars are worth less that JLR expected them to be.

The high GFV has kept my monthly repayments lower for the past three years so I'm not too put out, but come October when my deal ends I will be looking at handing back, rather than enjoying some equity.
