Do your research Find out what manufacturer deals are on offer. These might include interest-free or low APR rates, or even deposit contributions.

Shop around Dont assume the dealer is the best place to get finance; many internet companies also now provide competitive loans.

Compare like with like Dont just focus on monthly repayments. The APR is your benchmark and will tell you how much a loan will cost over its lifetime.

Haggle A salesman wont offer you the best finance rate straight away. Bargain hard and you could make a big saving.

Be alert Dont be talked into anything youre unsure of. If you dont understand, ask, and get the dealer to put everything in writing.
