Buying a new car

Hey everyone. Im new to this forum. I cant figure out where to put this post so apologies if its in the wrong section.

I dont drive, my husband does. He is at work tonight so I thought I would ask a few questions for us as neither of us know about cars. Only had 1 car, our 2002 corsa.

Buying a category C car tomorrow. A renault megane dynamique vvt 2006 with 79,000 miles on it.

I know the person who had the accident in it. Cosmetic only. It was then passed to auction and someone else bought it in September 2015. Im buying it off that person for 280.

MOT was done in November 2015. Bumper is cracked from accident but this is an advisory to repair and we can get my nephew to replace it.

Hubby test drove it today (said it
Drives nice)-well MUCH smoother than our current bumpy corsa so not much to compare to.


1) before we pay tomorroe what should we look for. I know this car is a computer run car. Not a normal key like our Corsa. It comes with 1 key card. Is there any checks we could do?

2) anything else to check?

I know cat C's are a risk.

Thanks sooooooo much in advance.
