it is easy to let the price tag of a used car distract from the fact of the added protection

Carried out by What Car?, the survey detailed a whole host of aspects regarding the reliability of certain models and brands of car, gleaning results from over 50,000 individual warranty claims over the course of the past twelve months. Factors such as a car’s age, the rate of failure and the cost of repair are all accounted for in order for the survey to reach its final results.

Those who fared best have been mainstays at the top of the reliability leader board for some years now, with the majority of these based in Japan or Korea. However, those faring worst in the 2015 survey highlight the attention that owners of high end cars need to pay to their well-being of their vehicle.

While their repairs are by no means the most costly to carry out – the highest on the list is a £20,747 repair on a Nissan – the findings show that a substantial amount of money is needed to cover costs when things go wrong. The highest cost for a Bentley repair was almost £8,500 and for a Porsche repair the figure exceeded £10,000, a huge outlay for a car owner regardless of the value of their vehicle.

A spokesperson for Click4Warranty, market leaders in the providing of personalised warranty plans to customers from all over the United Kingdom, has released a statement following the report, stating: “Sometimes it is easy to let the price tag of a used car distract from the fact of the added protection that is still needed to avoid even further expenditure from the owner.

“While Bentley and Porsche are two of the most iconic car brands we see on Britain’s road, this is not to say that they are invulnerable to damage and repair, as the findings of the survey show. Here at Click4Warranty we believe there is a warranty policy for every car owner, and that it is vital to attain one in order to save yourself thousands of pounds later down the line.”

Click4Warranty is a UK based firm and online provider focused on providing flexible insurance products to their consumers. As well as being FCA registered the company is also a member of the Financial Ombudsman service (FOS) and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
