Moving from bangernomics

    So after years of bangenomics and spending as little as possible on cars, I've got to the stage where I need reliability for a few years.
    I know it's different for everyone but what is the best way of buying a new or nearly new car? Current car is worth a few hundred at most and I would not have the a massive deposit saved up.
    Wondering about PCP Vs HP Vs bank loan really

    Leave your bangernomics car out of the deal anyway. Just be aware that going in to any kind of finance deal without much of a deposit means you'll be in year 3, 4 or even 5 before you have any equity in the car to change again if you want to.
