This was obviously passed down to me from my father who once a fortnight, pre football match, dragged me round garages in the Bradford district looking at cars. I don’t recall him wasting the salespersons time, but it was a regular 30 minute thing, between lunch and 3pm kick off, different garages, marques etc looking at anything with wheels, both new and second hand.
I’m thinking of changing at the moment and looking forward to when garages reopen so I can do a few test drives. Nothing specific in mind, or even body styles apart from 5 door hatch or estate. Maybe the feeling will pass !
Whilst looking at the review page on the HJ site for a Nissan Quashqai it came up with a site called Newcar discount.com that were offering a Quashqai Visia for £15K. Has anyone any experience of such sites. There were various other sites offering similair discounts, the reviews all seem positive.
What's the catch ?
I cannot comment on newcar discount but I looked at some brokers last year.
1)Some brokers pass you to the garage and the price is set. You deal with the garage arrange spec/pickup etc and pay the garage after examining car.
2)Some Brokers want you to pay them and then pick up the car from their offices. A bit dodgy as they could do a midnight flit. Equally if you pay the broker they are your supplier & not the franchised dealer - a "lemon car "and return of the same would be even more difficult.
