If you want to know how to get a great deal on a car, you can do a lot worse than speak to someone who’s used to sitting on the other side of the dealership desk. So, we did exactly that.

Our tame salesman's answers to reader questions both educate and entertain, but because he was speaking in a personal capacity, we are respecting his wish to remain anonymous.

Once you’ve absorbed his advice, make sure you check out the latest deals available through our New Car Buying service. You're guaranteed to get at least our Target Price discount if you buy through us, without the hassle of haggling.
