Should a nearly-new car be discounted?

Should I buy a 171 D car with 500km on clock without getting discount for same and what extra charges do dealers add on to prices quoted online for a new car?

Hi Helen,

No, if the car is already registered and has mileage on the clock then you should be getting a significant discount. Dealers add 'delivery and related charges' to the price of a new, unregistered car, but that shouldn't be the case for one that already has its plates. Usually such charges are in the region of €500-750.
