One of Britain’s best-selling sports cars has to be the Mazda MX-5 soft-top. Apart from offering an awesome driving experience, it is also a no-nonsense, affordable car that is aimed at the masses rather than the privileged few.
If you want a car that offers mind-blowing performance and high levels of luxury, you might want to consider a car like the Jaguar F-Type instead. But if you want a fun car to drive that is extremely grippy on the road, has all of the creature comforts that we are accustomed to in modern cars and doesn’t cost a fortune to maintain, look no further than the Mazda MX-5!
If you are thinking of buying a brand new Mazda MX-5, this new car buyer’s guide will help you to get the best deal around!
Sell your existing car privately
One of the first questions that a car salesperson will ask you is what car you have got to trade in. This is because they can make even bigger profits by purchasing your old car off you for little money and slapping on a bigger price tag when they sell it on their forecourt (or to another dealership).
In order to be a savvy shopper, you should always sell your car privately. Apart from the fact that you will get a much better price (especially if your car isn’t that old) but you will also benefit from having to pay less for your brand new MX-5.
If you have never sold a car before, the Which? website is packed full of information and tips on how to sell your existing car privately.
Pay as little interest as possible on any financing or loans
Should you are lucky enough to have the entire sum of money available in cash, you should consider buying your car only with cash. This is because you will not have to pay any interest, and in some cases you might even be able to negotiate a good price.
But if you don’t have all of the money to stump upfront, do make sure that you use a form of lending that won’t charge you much interest. Avoid paying for the car with a credit card, and instead look at personal loans or financing.
It is worth noting that you don’t have to take finance out from the Mazda dealer that you visit, as there is a plethora of finance companies out there that you can arrange lending with separately.
Do some online research for the best deals
According to Romford Mazda, most people are under the impression that all Mazda main dealers charge the same amount of money for brand new cars, but this is simply not true. All car dealerships, regardless of marque, are franchised. This means they have the power to charge you less than the manufacturer’s recommended maximum selling price.
Quite often, you will see Mazda dealers promoting sales offers at certain times of the year (or even the month), so it’s worth seeing what deals each dealer has got on. And be prepared to travel, as your local dealer might not necessarily have the best deal for you.
