It’s Going to be a Bargain Weekend

Sat, 28 Sep 2002
Just in: New for 52 reg Kia Magentis 2.5 V6 for just £10,495 from Stanley Cars of Bradford, but must be registered by 30th September. Link:

With new car sales down nearly 20% on last September, it’s a make or break weekend for many of Britain’s new car dealers. To get their volume bonuses from the manufacturers, they have to either sell or pre-register a lot of cars. And if their finances aren’t 100% they’d rather sell the cars at no profit and balance the books than hang on into October. So if you’re in the market for a new car which a dealer has in stock, this is definitely the weekend to do a deal. Check the offers below carefully, and get linking for the very latest prices. Note: subheads are NOT links, only the links are links.
