The true cost of not maintaining your car

Don’t wait for your car to breakdown to fix a problem!

Regularly getting your car checked is not often your top priority because it seems like just another cost on an already tight budget. However, the money that you think you are saving by skipping regular car services could end up costing you in more ways than one. 

Poorly maintained vehicles cause thousands of accidents every year, with many of us taking to the road with dangerous and illegal car faults. Bald tyres are the most common but studies have shown people also ignore faulty brakes, broken windscreen wipers, broken or missing wing mirrors and defective brake lights. All of this can add up to serious problems and could potentially cause fatal crashes

Many people also may not realise that by not having your car properly maintained you can potentially invalidate your breakdown cover and car insurance. Meaning, that if you are involved in an accident it really is going to cost you. Neglecting maintenance only leads to bigger repair bills later on, lowers the resale value of your car and increases your fuel consumption.

Even if you are lucky enough to avoid a crash, putting off maintenance is extremely likely to reduce your car's lifespan. A vehicle that might have been driven for 200,000 miles over its life could be reduced to as little 150,000 miles. That could mean an expensive upgrade will be needed a lot sooner than you’d planned for.

So, in the long run, putting off that check really isn’t saving you any money. Start budgeting for car servicing, read our guide on servicing your car regularly and make sure you’re not taking any risks on the road. It could cost you more than you think. 

At SERE, our company ethos is entirely customer-focused. We pride ourselves on offering top quality car repair and maintenance. By following preventive maintenance and servicing measures, you are capable of saving time, money and effort. You can book a service with us today online or call us on 028 9020 5100.
