What is a good translation for the word "deal" in spanish. I know that the word trato is a good translation but does it work in situtuacions like these

Looking for a good deal on a car?
Buscas un buen trato para un coche?
or
Find great deals at ....
Encuentra buenos tratos ....

Are these good tranlations?
Gracias por su ayuda

Yes, we also use ganga in Spain.

Es una ganga or ¡Vaya ganga! or ¡Qué ganga!

"Ganga" is another word that everyone knows (in Spain), but very few use.

A word used here (US) for a good deal is ganga, although I'm not sure I've heard it used in the context of cars. It's more like a bargain.

Fue una ganga = It was a steal / It was a great deal / It was a bargain

You can also say: hacer un buen/mal negocio = to do a good/bad deal

or ¡Qué negocio! What a bargain! as in: what a good deal!

James is probably right. I was just trying to get a word-by-word translation.

A big mistake when it comes to translations!

I think the structure of the phrase would be different in Spanish. They would say things like "Tenemos los precios más bajos en coches..." or "Ahorra más en tu nuevo coche..."

Find great deals at .... = Encuentra ofertas en...
Find great deals at .... = Encuentra chollos' en...

"'chollo" is a slang word in Spain, at least.

"Trato" refers to the way you've been treated in a shop (customer services).
