Hi all,

I'm looking to sell my car and buy a used car from a show room. I have two options... I can either Part Ex my car if they give me or good deal or buy one on finance and sell mine privately to pay off as much of the finance. However If I go for Part Ex the chances are their not really going to move on price. However If I buy the car on finance they are more open to negotiation! Now the question is... How much will a dealer go down in price by? Anyone got any advice? A couple of hundred? £500? Any idea's folks as I if I decide to buy the car, I dont fancy looking like a muppet trying to negotiate too far!

All advice welcome as always!!

I guess it depends on what your budget is?
If you are going for finance they always try and get more out of you so be very careful and make sure you do your sums.
Just be careful and dont rush into anything even if they give you the heavy sales pitch!!

If you negotiate too far, theres no problem, if you don't negotiate enough you could have wasted some money, always start off by letting them know you wont be a push over :)

you have got the upper hand were in a credit crunch and they are desprate to sell!!!

I always make a silly offer then come up a bit makes it look like your giving a bit ha ha DONT let the sales person push you thats their tactics normally if your not happy walk away you can always go back another day and there will always be another car the same!!

ok do you have a fords of winsford type dealer? the price on the screen is what you pay. They will part ex but as far as i am aware the price isnt negotiable.
I went to so many dealers who treated me as a stupid woman that i got fed up and went there! it was great i just looked at cars in my budget. Bought it very quickly and had no problems with after sales either.
If you go to a dealer take a savvy man with you. I am very independant but its a mans world unfortunately.

Very true however this is a used car which is a great spec for the price. As its an automatic too they are very difficult to get hold off. I dont want to let this one slip but I do think there is room for negotiation!:thumbsup:

Go to: http://www.whatcar.com

On the 'toolbar' along the top, click on "Free Valuations".

This will give you some idea of what a second hand car is worth. Bear in mind, though, that the garage will want to make some profit on the sale (otherwise they'd be out of business).

You should get a better deal having no PX because the chain stops there - they dont have the hassle of prepping your car and selling it on.

If you are taking finance from the dealer, watch what rate they quote - they will work on flat rate whilst you will probably be after APR - as a guide APR can be as much as double the flat rate.

Hi i used to sell cars for a few years for a couple of the big dealers. Now there is no set mark up on any car, some stand (cost) higher than others and therefore they dont move as far as they can on other ones, plus, if a car has been on the forecourt for a while it is losing money just from sitting there so they write the price down each month to accomodate this, so if a car has been there for some time they are likely to move a bit more on this one.

Simple answer is, its not an exact science there are so many variables, at the end of the day if you get the car you want at the price you wanted to pay you have got a great deal!!!

Oh and buying on finance helps unless its 0% (no such thing actually you just pay the finance costs in the screen price) as the dealership get a kickback from the finance house for putting the money through them, which helps with the cost of the car. Sometimes we would sell the car at a loss because the finance deal was so good!!!

Great info will remember that next time im off to buy a car!! good to know if you buy cash could work out cheaper to take out the finance and pay it off in a lump sum dependant on penalties!!:thumbsup:

Im selling my beloved Mini Cooper... I need a 5 door car now. I will miss not having a Mini however practicality seems to be more important as you grow older. The car was fab when I were a single lass on the town but I want to invest in a new car that I can keep for the future (next 5 years or so) :thumbsup:
