With perfect tense?

Salut, In the example it says 'nous n'avons acheté aucune voiture' so does this not follow the normal rule with negatives that it goes around the auxiliary verb in the perfect tense? Merci!

This question relates to:
French lesson "Ne ... aucun(e) = None (negation)"

Bonjour Abby ! Here it doesn't as "aucun/e" acts like an indefinite article to "voiture", hence its agreement: -> We bought *no* car." "Aucun/e" will always be placed before the noun it refers to, just like an article or an adjective. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
