Haggling when buying a car

77 posts in this topic

Looking to hear some tips / stories of how you haggled some money off when you bought a car.

I'm pretty shit at haggling and I'm looking to get better at it.

Did you have a target price? How did you work it out?

Did you point out faults with the car in order to get money off, or did you just go in with the haggle?

What was the list price and how much did you get off?

Was it a private sale or a dealership?

Thought this would warrant it's own thread but if mods think otherwise feel free to merge onto the car driving topic.

Safe

Isit worth going car auction?

Yeah I've heard mixed things about auctions.

Someone I knew bought at car at one, they thought they got an amazingly good deal... Then they got in the car to drive it away. Lethal combo of the smell of cigarette smoke and dogs.

It's common sense to point out faults and use it to bring the price lower

But it all depends how much the seller wants to let it go

Can do it both in a dealership and private

main dealers have been haggled for new cars, don't get it twisted.

Currys get haggled constantly, don't see how You could haggle in Argos though, with their ordering system.

TBH never knew you could or tried to haggle in a Curry's type of place. Is this something you have to do with the store manager or what?

 

Also are people just shooting the breeze here or has anyone actually done this successfully?

becoz they are major corporations, i would say you would have to do it with the manager or store manager

 

obviously its not like your usually shitty shop owned by patel

 

if you look in the sales of goods act and the rule of law... anything that is commerically viable to be sold to the public is able to be haggled

 

obviously if they dont want to haggle then its a no innit

 

but becoz currys for example is such a big big organisation.... they dont NEED to haggle so youll find them say no prob 100% of the time

Bought my car from there 3 years ago, was tryna haggle all day but they weren't having a bar. In the end I got £200 off a £13k car. It mattered not that I was paying cash up front
