Car insurance: Drivers 'should deal with small faults immediately'

Thursday, 03 September 2009

Drivers who do not want to jeopardise their cheap car insurance premiums may be well advised to get minor vehicle problems sorted out sooner rather than later, if comments from one breakdown company are anything to go by.

Mondial Assistance warned failing to deal with a small fault could leave motorists facing a more dangerous problem further down the line.

In addition to this, it could increase the chances that something will go wrong with the auto while on the road, potentially causing an accident and forcing drivers to make a claim on their car insurance.

Lee Taylor, automotive director at Mondial Assistance, stated: "It is crucial that once a problem becomes apparent, it is addressed as quickly as possible rather than being left to develop into something more serious and expensive to repair."

In other news, the same roadside assistance group recently urged motorists heading to Europe to brush up on the various laws that may affect them while behind the wheel before leaving the UK.
