Asda Money Reveals the Cars Most Likely to Breakdown

LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 -- Asda Money looks at how one of nation's most prized possessions, the humble motor, could end up costing car owners more than they bargained for.

This is especially true for motorists who may have selected a model that is more prone to common breakdown problems such as engines not firing or problems relating to wheels or tyres(1).

To help drivers avoid this potential financial pitfall, Asda Money reveals the cars which are most likely to breakdown.

Land Rovers

The Discovery Land Rover maybe expensive and robust, but it is also the car most likely to breakdown. The wallet-draining 4x4 tops the list of the European cars most likely to break down with a massive 85% of Discovery owners having seen a fault develop in the last 18 months(2).

Some 42% of the most common faults were related to the axle & suspension.

Bentley Continental

Bentley's may be impressive to look at, but they also have a high breakdown rate. Some 78% of the Bentley Continental range needed extra attention over 2012 as many of them caused problems for their owners. Over half (52%) of the faults were attributed to the vehicle's electrics. Bentley Continentals come at a high price and many may expect that reliability is included, however, for some motorists this was not the case.

Renault Espace

The vehicle's engine caused the biggest problem for Renault Espace owners with a massive 18% citing that this was faulty. This model came in third place in a ranking of the most unreliable cars in Europe with an incident rate of 76%(3). The popular family car by the French manufacturer offers flexible seating, safety and space, but this didn't stop it from securing a place in the top five.

The majority of motorists don't enjoy their vehicle breaking down on them and take extra measures such as buying breakdown cover to make the experience less financially painful and stressful.

Breaking down without cover can be expensive as it can cost up to GBP 100 an hour(4) just to call out a specialist. By having car breakdown insurance in place you can avoid high emergency call out fees and see that your car is attended to.

Asda Money offers comprehensive breakdown cover to suit your needs and budget.
