Budget is around £7K, going to some big dealerships to look at various cars next week - want something 2-3 years old with not too many miles on the clock that will be reliable for another 10 years.
Have never bought a car before (current car came from PIL) so don't know where to start! Would I get a better deal walking in with pockets full of cold hard cash? Or should I cough up for finance deals to get a better price?
And how much should I offer on a car with a price tag of, say, £8K?
Any tips on what to look for, what to avoid, how to go about it, would be gratefully appreciated, thank you!
(And if you can tell me what car you would recommend that fits my criteria I will love you for ever )
