With the release of new car registrations today and the car industry on course to achieve over two million sales this year ITV News Central caught up with motoring broadcaster and journalist Quentin Wilson to get his top tips for new-car buyers.
Quentin's Top Tips
1) Remember that the dealer 'desperately' wants your business.
2) If you're part-exchanging, don't get hung up too much over what the dealer is offering for your old car. The important figure is the 'price to change'. This is the total amount you'll have to pay for your new car.
3) Haggle! Don't pay list price, make an offer. Some dealers are offering discounts of up to £7000 on some vehicles.
