Hi all
I've been searching around the internet looking at various websites to try and see what the best price quote for a "1.6 Acenta Premium" is. Hopefully I can print the quote and show it to my local Nissan dealer and see if they can match the price.

Has anyone used any of these internet websites to buy cars from? Are they reliable? The best quote I seen online is a 12% discount (~£1909) off the standard price!
I know some of these sites are actually selling pre-registered cars (hence you will only be the 2nd owner of the car), however is there any major risk in getting a pre-registered car?

(p.s. Not all of these websites sell pre-registered cars. I called the guy from carfile.net and he confirmed that they only sell new cars and not pre-registered ones. Their discount is about 7.7%)

Anyone used the above websites to purchase cars before? And do you think its possible to haggle a 12% discount with the local nissan dealer??

I used the online prices to haggle with my local dealer and they instantly knocked £900 off dci Acenta Premium against the list price so definitely worth a shot. Not sure if I'd be comfortable actually buying from one of the online sites though - prefer to do it face to face myself.

yeah thats what i was thinking as well. not too sure about buying online. but the discounts is very tempting. also the fact that i hate haggling...always think that i've been robbed even after you haggle!

You have to think about after-sales service. That's a factor.

Horse-trade with the dealer in the first instance.

I bought my Juke through Autoebid and saved approx £1600.

I had never bought a car on-line before, and was certainly apprehensive- but I researched Autoebid as thoroughly as I could and then spoke to them on the phone beforehand. My experience was mostly good, and it was an interesting and quite exciting way of buying a car. Autoebid is a 'reverse auction',- they put tenders out to dealers etc, who then bid each other down in order to get your business.

I went to my local Nissan dealer beforehand and test drove the Juke, but they would not budge on the price, and offered me a pitiful amount as part-exchange on my Polo,but I really wanted the Juke,but I couldn't quite afford it, so decided to look at internet dealers, and that's when I discovered Autoebid.

Good luck!

I must admit - I dont know whether you are brave or mad....

I dont like doing transactions like that over the internet - call me old fashioned or just downright suspicious... I really wouldnt go down that road

All the same - good for you for being brave enough!!!

Thanks for the info! I was quite worried about the autoebid as well as i'm not sure if there is any hidden scams and charges involved! Glad there is some positive reviews from it.

£1600 is alot of saving i think

I don't think Autoebid will disappear-I think it's worth checking them out. They don't actually supply the cars, but will give you the details of the dealership/supplier who they have done lots of checks on previously. You pay Autoebid a commission fee then mostly deal with the car supplier you choose when the bids come in-I'm probably making it sound very confusing-butit really isn't-have a look at their website.
Hope this helps!

In my casethe supplierwas Parks of Hamilton in Scotland who were very efficient.

I am tempting with going to Autoebid if my local dealer wouldn't give me any decent discounts. Afterall I can easily use the £1600 to go on a nice holiday!

How long did the transaction take on Autoebid? i.e. from when you place your 'request' till when the dealer's bids comes in? what happens if the dealer's bid is higher than you expectation? are you obliged to take the bid after a certain time period?

i presume the financing is done through the dealer? can you get the same nissan financing of 5.9% and £250 for 3 years servicing?

I didn't take out financing so don't know whether the Nissan financing will cover an Autoebid transaction. But any Nissan dealership will deal with any warranty problems and servicing.

I suggest you ring Autoebid to make sure you understand exactly how it all works-and make sure you know at what stage of the deal you pay the commission etc- I don't want to give you the wrong info!

It took 2-3 days from placing my order/request to the bids coming in. I got 3 bids to choose from and obviously went for the cheapest and with the quickest delivery date. At this stage I had no idea about the terrible delays that many people are having- and consider myself quite lucky that it only went a month overdue. I put the order in at beg Oct and got the car beg Dec. However this does not mean that the situation is the same now, and you could face the same delays as everyone else-although this hasn't anything to do with Autoebid. You could also be registered as the second owner if you are buying from dealer that has bought a number of cars for a 'fleet' and therefore got them at discount-hence that's why it's cheaper. Again I was lucky that I'm the first owner and it wasn't bought from a fleet-but that may not be the case anymore.

Watch the video on the Autoebid website-that explains it pretty well and don't forget to ring them to discuss any worries that you have.

Like you said £1600 could buy a very nice holiday which I am sure will be most welcomeduring this horrible grey weather we are having!

All the best
