General Haggling Tips 1 Choose what car you want before you visit a dealer or seller. Research its average price and set that as your price limit. Bid low and let the seller work up to a price you're comfortable with (if you start too high you can't go back). Keep calm. All you and the seller want is to get a good deal. 4 Don't be afraid to walk away - The seller may call to accept the deal after you've left and there are always more cars available elsewhere. Tips for Buying New Cars 1 Check what deals and discounts are available elsewhere and ask sellers to match them. If part-exchanging, know what your car is worth and haggle up the price. Dealers will usually pay 'trade' prices, which will be less than you'll get by selling privately. It can be easier to haggle towards the end of the month as sales staff will be closer to their sales target. 4 Ask for extras. Getting alloy wheels, air conditioning or even mats and mud-flaps for free, can be a significant saving. If you're taking out finance, dealers may be more willing to offer discounts as they can offset the commission they'll get from the finance lender against money off or extra equipment. Dealers will always be keen to shift older stock, so check if a newer model is about to be released. Tips for Buying Used Cars 1 A car history check will show if the car was in an accident, stolen or has outstanding finance against it. Don't risk your money without ensuring the car is fit for your purposes. Areas of the car which require maintenance or faults found during a test drive are good rea- sons to ask for a discount.
