Younger generation better at basic car repairs, study suggests
Younger drivers have suggested they're more comfortable performing basic repairs then their parents.

According to a recent study, 17 to 24-year-olds are more confident in performing basic car maintenance tasks, reports The Sun.

The survey, conducted by LV= suggests that the younger generation know as “millenials” are far more confident with car repairs, with half saying they would find simple tasks easy to complete.

When asked the same question, 31 per cent of drivers aged over 45 felt the same way.

According to the study, google searched for instructional videos on motor repairs are increasing by 70 per cent each year.

Manging director of car insurance for LG=, Selwyn Fernandes, commented: “With so many people saying they wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to performing maintenance on their car, along with Gemini Accident Repair Centres, we’ve decided to create some simple-to-follow guidance for common car problems.

“We know from previous research that more and more households have second cars, so understanding how to repair simple car problems can help families save money.”
