Getting a DS DS 3 on finance

Thinking about getting a used DS 3 on finance? Here's a straightforward guide to help you make the right choice.


Q: What should I know about the DS 3? A: Look into its different versions, how it performs, and any issues other drivers have pointed out.

Q: Where can I find a good used DS 3? A: Start with DS's official used car program. After that, try online car websites, DS dealers, and local classifieds.

Q: What are my financing options? A:

  • PCP: Put down a deposit, then make monthly payments. At the end, you can buy the car with a final payment, trade it in, or return it.
  • HP: Pay an initial deposit, then pay off the car's value in monthly chunks. Once done, the car's all yours.
  • Leasing: It's like a long-term rental. Use the car for an agreed time and then give it back.
  • Personal Loan: Borrow money, buy the car outright, and then pay back the loan over time.

Q: How can I get the best finance deal? A: Shop around. Get quotes from DS dealers and other loan places. Compare them using the interest rate (APR).

Q: How big a deal is my credit score? A: It matters. A good score can get you better offers. You can check yours using services like Experian or Equifax.

Q: How should I set my budget? A: Work out what you can afford each month. Remember, a bigger deposit up front might mean smaller monthly payments.

Q: What's important in the finance contract? A: If you pick PCP or leasing, check for any mileage limits. Also, look for fees if you end the agreement early.

Q: Is haggling a good idea? A: Definitely! Try to lower the DS 3's price and get a better deal on the finance agreement. It could save you some cash.


There you have it! If you've got any questions or doubts, don't hesitate to ask the dealer or get some advice.
