Audi has become quite renowned for sneaky previews of their latest models. Just as they did with the ads for the S1, Audi has done it again by teasing us with sketches of the highly anticipated Q4 concept.

Audi’s Q4 is a concept SUV tat will combine both fuel and electrical motors. The company has labeled the all new Q4 as a ‘plug-in hybrid crossover’.

Luckily for us, the sketches won’t be the nay thing we will be able to see about the car for a long time. The Q4 will make it’s official debut at the Beijing Auto Show next week.

Tesla Model S will get Titanium battery shield to combat fire problem

Published by on Mar 31st, 2014, No Comments


Tesla’s electric sedan, the famed Model S, has been hailed by many as “the safest car on Earth”. While some of that statement might be true, there seems to be one, little factor that is a throne in Tesla’s safe side. And it’s quite a big one – fire.

Over the past few months, Tesla has been plagued with complaints of it’s model S catching fire when it is in a crash or comes into contact with road debris.

This happens when the underbody of the car, which carries the battery pack, is punctured. While there have been 3 reported incidents of a Tesla Model S catching fire, luckily none of the passengers in these cars were injured. (more…)

Lisabank and the what you should know about used cars

Published by on Mar 31st, 2014, No Comments

All used cars for sale at Lisabank are well priced. Lisabank makes buying as simple as possible.

Whether you are searching to buy a sedan, bakkie,or SUV, we have your next vehicle.

What are the benefits of buying a used/second car in today’s economy?

Most of the new cars that South Africa produces do not have enough local manufacturing content

to counteract the effects of a weak South African currency. So buying a second hand vehicle allows

consumers to purchase a depreciated item.

Many 1 and 2 year old vehicles are depreciated by 30 percent yet they may have covered less than

20000 km’s

When looking to buy a car, how can a buyer tell if they are getting the best value for their money?

With comparative shopping! The buyer can use technology (internet) to search for comparable

vehicles and compare value and condition.

Where does Lisabank get their cars from?

Lisabank sources their cars in a variety of ways

• Bank repossessed vehicles

• Trade-ins at franchise dealerships

• Purchases from fleets and companies

• Purchases from private individuals

• Auctions

• Trade-ins against our own stock

• And many other avenues

What does Lisabank offer that is different to their competitors?


Our vehicles are priced to be at the most competitive price at a comparable value.

If a person buys a car and is not happy with the purchase what is the return policy when taking into

consideration that the Consumer Protection Act currently plays a big role?

The CPA clearly states that a consumer may return goods to a supplier within 6 months if the goods

were sold without being accurately described. In other words, a consumer should not expect the

same performance from a used vehicle which has covered extensive mileage compared to a vehicle

that is brand new that has covered no mileage.

I want to be me more considerate to the environment, what kind of cars should I be looking at?

All vehicles being sold as new today carry a tax based on how economical those vehicles are. An

older vehicle whose technology may be outdated contributes negatively to the environment.
