MotorEasy creates Hallowe’en nightmare

As the clocks go back and the days get darker, motorists should run a mile on sight of MotorEasy’s Hallowe’en horror show concept.

The car ownership and maintenance start-up has used insights from its 40,000-strong bank of warranty plans to conjure up a vehicle that would give owners constant nightmares and sound the death knell on their bank balances with its blood-curdling £25,000 repair cost.

The imaginary vehicle is fashioned from the cars that generated the largest repair bills across seven component categories during the last 12 months.

The MotorEasy image of the monster proves that, were it ever to be built, the car would be as ugly as its impact on any owner’s wallet.

With repair costs totalling £24,606.74, the Hallowe’en creation features the engine of a 2011 Range Rover, which alone accounts for more than half of the total bill, requiring a fix of well over £15,000.

Elsewhere, the brakes of a 10-year old BMW Z4 and the electrical system of a 2009-plate Audi A3 also feature, combining to drain another £4,467 from the coffers.

Duncan McClure Fisher, MotorEasy founder, said, ‘This car is every motorists’ nightmare, with a stratospheric repair bill.’

‘While the concept is just a bit of fun, it does nonetheless highlight the financial hit when things do go wrong with cars.

‘Our creation is an extreme example but the fact is that very few people have money lying around if the worst happens. It pays to be protected.’
