    Thumbs up Buying a car in Auckland

    For all looking for a new car in Auckland. Go to Ellerslie racecourse 9-12 on a sunday and it is like a giant car boot but only selling cars.

    They range from really cheap to expensive you can get them checked out there on site for $140 dollars.

    We are well chuffed with our cheap Nissan March. After getting it checked managed to get roughly another 20% knocked off asking pprice.

    Left $100 deposit and settled with seller next day.

    Don't change ownership there for $30 do it next day for $9.20 at post office.

    Great place for camper vans as well.
    You can test drive to your hearts content including up the motorway.

    Drive away if you want the same day.

    This sounds brilliant - and exactly the sort of thing we were looking for to get a car.

    Does anyone know if there is anything similiar in Christchurch?

    The car fair is great but just be wary of people who buy at the auction in Penrose during the week then resell for a profit on the Sunday - seemed to be a tonne of these when I was looking for my car!

    As long as you ask them how long they've owned it for, and be wary of people "selling it for their friend"

    It's defintiely a lot easier than having to drive all over Auckland looking for cars
