When I bought my first car, I thought I had got a great deal. However, it was only many years later that I realised how naive I had been. I wasn't ripped off, but I didn't know exactly how to negotiate to reduce the price or to get added extras thrown in as part of the bargain. I learnt about how to get a great auto deal from my brother-in-law, Brian who works in the trade. Over the years, he hasn't given me loads of useful advice about what to look out for when looking for a new auto to drive.
