The value of finance deals used to buy new cars has soared to a new monthly record, according to latest figures.
Motorists spent £3.6bn on car finance deals in March, a rise of 13% on the same month in 2016, the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) said.
The vast majority of the purchases were via so-called Personal Contract Purchases (PCPs).
The Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have raised concerns about such deals.
