Drivers in London are the most neglectful of all.

New research shows that 20 per cent of car have skipped servicing, maintenance and repairs in the past 12 months.

Almost half of those neglecting their car’s servicing or maintenance shockingly said that they would be spending more as a result, with the additional bill for drivers totalling £153.9 million.

Londoners are more likely to have skipped maintenance than car owners anywhere else in the UK, with a third having done so in the past 12 months.

Older drivers also have a greater appreciation of the cost of delaying work.

Across the UK as a whole, financial constraints are the most common reason cited by car owners for skipping servicing, followed by driving fewer miles.
