More Drivers Now Doing Their Own Maintenance

April 19, 2010

It would seem that more of us are now doing our own vehicle maintenance beyond that of ensuring the daily and weekly checks and topping up fluid levels.

A survey of some 2,000 drivers by oil firm Castrol found that 56% now do their own running repairs against 21% a couple of years ago.

It would seem that many are no longer prepared to pay the price of using a qualified mechanic or taking the vehicle to the main dealership feeling that they are being ripped off.

But beware – Employers must ensure that any vehicle which is being used on their behalf for a work related journey is fit for purpose and has been maintained in accordance with the manufactures specifications so home DIY may not pass the test.
