Drivers skimp on maintenance due to recession


Drivers skimp on maintenance due to recessionA survey by Glass's Guide has found that almost half (46%) of motorists have delayed spending anything on their car over the past year. This included 15% who delayed getting their car regularly serviced and 8% who delayed buying replacement tyres.

"While it is inevitable that some consumers will respond to deteriorating economic conditions by cutting back on aspects of their motoring expenditure, it is concerning that scheduled services and tyre purchases are being deferred," says Andy Carroll, Managing Director at Glass's.

"These are crucial for safety, and also have an impact on resale values. Prospective buyers are always more likely to buy a car that has a full service history over one that does not. Moreover, by delaying these important checks and thus missing manufacturer-stated service intervals, motorists are putting warranty cover at risk."
