Brits 'most likely to negotiate car finance'

British consumers are most likely to try and negotiate when it comes to buying a car, new research has revealed.

British consumers are most likely to try and negotiate when it comes to buying a car, new research has revealed.

Some 38 per cent of those questioned in a survey by credit report provider Experian's CreditExpert.co.uk service said they had been most successful when bartering with car finance providers or dealers.

And the managing director of Experian's automotive division Kirk Fletcher said this is because people are doing more research prior to buying a car.

"Consumers are more geared up than ever before to get a good deal," he added.

The survey also discovered that men are more likely to be able to barter for a better price and those aged between 45 and 54 were 2.5 times likelier to do this compared to 18 to 24-year-olds.

In related car news, it emerged yesterday that Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney filled up his Range Rover V8 with the wrong type of petrol.

This mistake can cost in the thousands to repair.
