New Car Sales Plummet

Aston Martin

Please go easy on car salesmen with these car buying / finance tips, as they’re probably feeling the pressure at the moment; new car registrations were at their lowest level since 1966, down 18% in August compared with this time last year, and the new 58 reg cars are hardly likely to fly off the forecourts given the state of the economy.

Aston Martin dealers probably have one of the hardest jobs at the moment, and they managed just 19 sales in August, compared with 57 in August last year. Looks like people are steering clear of gas guzzling supercars in favour of cheaper, more economical cars, such as Vauxhall Corsas and Ford Focus’ (Focuses?).
