Counting the monthly costs

WITH FINANCE deals so popular with car buyers these days, car buying website have gone to great lengths not only to make monthly payment options available to prospective customers but also to help guide them through the process getting the deal done.

To this end, Auto Trader has launched a new search by monthly price tool and recruited Rachel Riley, perhaps the UK’s most famous mathematician, to help do some sums for potential customers.

In the videos, the Countdown presenter aims to explain that car buying is much easier when you “#KnowYourNumbers”.

One of them is expecting triplets, another is retiring and wants to take up golf, a third is embracing a mid-life crisis, and a fourth is looking to get something for a romantic road trip.
