Car Repairs: One Pothole Could Cost You Two Months Salary

How Much Do Pothole Repairs Cost?

One pothole could cause damage costing almost two months of an average UK salary*.

According to our database of 30,000 car warranty customers, axle and suspension damage is one of the most common causes of repair claims.

The top repair cost for a suspension claim was a Land Rover Range Rover Sport, coming in at a whopping £3,863. This was closely followed by £2,768 for a Mercedes-Benz S-Class and it's not just luxury car owners who are forking out for potholes. We recorded a £1,697 suspension repair for a Ford Galaxy. 

The Annual Local Authority Road Maintenance Survey (ALARM), published last month, revealed that more than 24,000 miles of UK roads need repairing within the next year**, putting many cars at an increased risk of suffering suspension and axle-related damage.

Councils are currently spending £20.6 million a year in maintaining UK roads, but this a £556 million shortfall in the budget needed to keep on top of Britain's roads. There is currently a 14-year pothole backlog that would take £9.1 billion pounds to clear. 

2018's Budget And Pothole Spend

If you're thinking about making a claim against your local council for pothole damage you should first file a Freedom of Information request to see when the road was last inspected. We've made an example letter to make things easier. 

 

Why Are Potholes So Bad?

The state of UK roads has worsened significantly thanks to the prolonged cold spell of snow and wet weather earlier this year. Potholes are created when water gets into cracks in the road, freezes and expands, breaking open the road surface. Once the water melts again the road surface is weakened, road traffic speeds up this breakdown process. With weather conditions now improving, the perilous state of the nation’s roads is now becoming clear.

Overall, the average cost for a suspension claim has risen 10% to £305.05 in the last three years, which is equivalent to 58% of an average weekly wage in the UK*.

Top 10 most expensive suspension/axle claims in the last 12 months***:

Duncan McClure Fisher, said: “Potholes can prove to be a costly problem for motorists, causing damage that can run into thousands of pounds. With the ALARM report showing that a huge number of roads are still in poor condition, this is a problem that could plague many British drivers for months to come.”

Those drivers unfortunate enough to suffer pothole damage can approach MotorEasy for a repair quote with our ‘do-it-for-me’ service doing all the legwork of finding them a local garage they can trust and even negotiating better parts and labour costs on their behalf.

Customers are also assigned a MotorEasy technician who will look after the repair process for them and can organise collection and drop-off of their vehicle to the garage.

MotorEasy offers an online suite of motoring services and products to cover all aspects of car ownership and maintenance. Customers also benefit from their own private online account area, where they can store all their vehicle documents and receive notifications for important dates, such as MOTs, services and insurance renewals.

Latest Car Recall Notifications

What Are Car Safety Recalls?

Car recalls from the DVSA have become a regular part of car ownership over the last few years. They occur when a manufacturer determines that a car model or indeed several models have a defect that could compromise the drivers safety. If you're looking for a specific recall we have listed them all below so just scroll down. 

Now new legislation could be bought in that could see an automatic MOT fail if a recall repair is not completed. With figures showing there could be as many as a million cars on the road with ignored safety recall notificiations, with some 55,000 owners of Vauxhall Zafira's not having necessary repairs even after receiving up to seven letter from the car maker. 

11 Checks On A Car Without Getting Your Hands Dirty

 

Car Recalls In The News

The most famous car safety recall in the press was probably the Toyota brake recall of 2009-2011, where over 9 million vehicles were recalled worldwide. There were also 400,000 Mercedes-Benz recalled in October 2017 due to a major air bag fault in the UK.  

 

How To Check Car Recalls?

Since then it has become much more accepted that over time certain lines of vehicles can exhibit faults that weren't apparent when they left the factory. Addressing these problems can be seen as a proactive move by manufacturers for the safety of motorists. 

Recalls are now regularly undertaken by manufacturers, with the DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Association) announcing new recalls each month. In fact, you can check whether your car requires a recall at any time using their free car recall tool or just keep scrolling on down.
