Hi Guys, as always I am turning to ARRSE as usually there is somebody on here who will give excellent advice from first-hand knowledge (and twenty more who don't allow total ignorance to stand in their way of expressing an opinion, but can be very amusing!) Anyway, I am thinking, for the first time, of buying a new car. Nothing exciting, my sole must-haves are three three-point seatbelts in the rear, an auto gearbox, and (preferably) 4 doors minimum. I am also thinking of diesel. How is the best way to go about getting the best price (budget is a big concern) and best finance deal? I do have the option of bank loan, or throwing the lot onto the mortgage, but I am not adverse to a dealer finance with a deposit, 3 years monthly and a lump sum at the end. Warranty and servicing deals are also important, which is why I am thinking more main dealer than car supermarket. I'll probably be keeping the car for a long time (6+ years) Any advice and tips?
