Most hated aspects of car ownership

Drivers in the UK get more annoyed about MoTs than any other aspect of owning a vehicle, according to research published.

The research, which quizzed drivers on the things they hate the most about car ownership, reveals that almost half (47%) of drivers claim their number one bugbear is putting a car through the MoT test, while one in three (32%) said repairs are their biggest gripe.

The figures have been published by MyCarNeedsA.com as it bids to tackle the issues most hated by drivers across the country. The research also shows: 49% of drivers will only use a garage or workshop if it’s been recommended by a friend and cost (72%), a recommendation (50%) and location (44%) are the three most important factors when drivers are choosing a garage for a repair

‘As a motorist myself, it’s no surprise that MoTs, repairs and maintenance are the country’s biggest irritants when it comes to owning a car,’ said Scott Hamilton, MyCarNeedsA.com managing director.
