Consumers looking to buy a new car should ensure that they are well able to afford to do so before they commit to a purchase.
This is according to esure car insurance, which advises Britons to stick to their budgets and avoid being pressured to buy by salesmen.
It said that this is particularly important when making a big upgrade from a current car that may be a lot older and less valuable than a potential new purchase.
Consumers who find that the salesman will not discount the car at all should be ready to go somewhere else instead of paying more than they want to, the company added.
"Motorists must make smart decisions when deciding on the right car for them and have a clear budget in mind at the outset," stated Mike Pickard, head of risk and underwriting at esure car insurance.
Those buying a new or used car will need to make sure their purchase is registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
Buying a new vehicle will result in the dealer making the necessary arrangements, while the question of how to notify the DVLA when purchasing a used car depends on the registration document or certificate available.
