Motorists Advised Not to Neglect Servicing & Maintenance

KENT, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 31, 2009) - The affects of the recession are being felt by motorists up and down the country, with many neglecting to repair and properly maintain their cars in a bid to save money. This is according to recent research by a national insurance provider which revealed that almost half of motorists questioned (48%) had cut back expenditure on repairs and maintenance in the past year, with over a quarter (28%) scrimping on safety related items and almost a third (29%) postponing their vehicle's service.

Quote Me Today, one of the U.K's leading providers of fleet and motor trade insurance have reacted to this news by advising motorists not to neglect their vehicles and where possible, look at ways in which they can save on the cost of vehicle maintenance. A spokesperson commented:

"With Christmas fast approaching, and the country still largely in the grip of a recession, it is understandable that motorists will want to cut costs. However, neglecting to properly service or maintain your vehicle is not only false economy, it could also be putting you and your loved ones at risk, every time you get behind the wheel. This is all the more apparent when you consider that driving conditions are likely to become more hazardous as we continue into winter."

Continued:

"We would advise motorists to look at other ways of saving money. This could include servicing or repairing vehicles yourself, or taking it to a local garage rather than a main dealer. This is particularly apparent for vehicles which are over 3 years old and outside their manufacturer's warranty period."
