Should I be able to get a discount on a used Volvo V70?

I'm looking at buying my first used car as an adult. I have visited a couple of dealers, but no one is offering a discount. Am I doing something wrong or should I be able to get some money off? I'm looking for a Volvo V70 D3/D4 Auto at about £10,000?
