Car drivers get buying advice via podcast

The first ever podcast for drivers has been launched by used car retailer Network Q.

The broadcast, know as a ‘PodCar-st’ is a digital recording which gives listeners car-buying advice through their personal audio players.

Featuring the voice of Holly Samos, BBC Radio Five Live Formula One reporter and a member of Chris Evans radio show team, the Network Q PodCar-st offers tips and advice for potential car buyers.

The PodCar-st series, available for download from, begins with an in-depth look into what consumers should do before purchasing a used car, tackling pitfalls to avoid and research that should be done before making any investment.

The four further episodes focus on other aspects of purchasing a used car, including where to buy, essential vehicle checks, the purchasing process and your new used car vehicle.

It also includes a jargon buster.

Mike Brown, of Network Q, said: ’We realise our customers need further sources of information as well as being able to ask retailers for their advice, so we’ve made it easier for them by giving them an easily downloadable PodCar-st, which still gives great personal advice.

'With an increasingly tech-savvy customer we are providing a communication channel that they are familiar and comfortable with, offering peace of mind and making the car-buying process as straightforward and hassle-free as possible.’

The five topics covered in the podcasts are:

  • Before you buy
  • Where to buy
  • Essential vehicle checks
  • Purchasing
  • Your new used vehicle
