How to buy a banger

STEP ONE: GET BANGERNOMICS SENSES

Are you in the market for a used car after years of company and leased cars? Or are you a first timer with a freshly minted licence? Then you need to tune your senses and spend a lot of time looking at used cars for sale. So use your EYES to look critically at all cars on the street or in the car park. Decide what’s right and wrong with them and how much you would pay.

Use your EARS to listen to cars that pass you in the street. Do they sound healthy? What do you think the problem is? Don’t forget to use your NOSE. Just be generally nosey and curious about cars. Drive different ones whenever you can.
