Motoring Costs Hit All-time High

Recommended Posts

http://www.sky.com/skynews/xml/article/0,,...-216916,00.html

Motorists were found to spend an average of £459 on insurance, £250 on servicing and £119 on tax every year. The research also shows an average £80 bill for roadside assistance and £41 spent on MoTs.

250 on servicing ? obviously the average car never needs to be touched

119 on road tax ? I thought it was about 160

41 quid on MOT ? the average car now must fly through an MOT, most cars I've had including company cars failed on something.

Get yourself a proton... paid £600 for it, ive never had it serviced, its passed 2 MOT's (it needed a wiper blade last test, i consider that a pass), about £260 insuarance, £40 roadside assistance, and £120 tax.

Its cars like mine and owners like me which drop the averages right down :)
