INTERVIEW/ COMMENT: SIXTH CONSECUTIVE MONTH OF FALLING CAR SALES
Following today’s announcement that UK car sales are down for the sixth consecutive month, Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com explains what this means for buyers:
“While the latest figures show a downward trend in new car sales, prospective buyers should realise that this actually means there will be some unprecedented deals to be had as manufacturers and dealers push their stock to stimulate the market.
“October will be a key time for car buyers looking for a bargain thanks to the softening market. And as ever, the end of the year will also be a critical time for buyers looking to cash in on a sales-driven market, and brand agnostic customers will be in the best position to get a good deal.
“Even though keen car buyers may find themselves dazzled by these discounts, it’s important to avoid making a snap decision. We’d encourage drivers to do their research and compare online, such as via Confused.com’s car buying service, to ensure they really are getting the best deal available.”
