As much as we want to tighten our belts, there are certain basic expenses that are necessary to cover our day-to-day activities and which are also fixed every month. The car is one of them, but it is also one of the most unpleasant surprises you can give.
A flat tire, a failure in the engine, the revision of the ITV … Despite the comfort of having a car, there are so many unforeseen (and expensive) expenses that can cause fright. Therefore, in Good Finance, a leading company in the microcredit sector in Spain , we bring you four tricks to avoid the avoidable.
The most common fault
Gearbox. We started easy: although it is not the most common fault, it is one of the most serious. It spoils with sudden gear changes or when you lean on it, so treat it gently and you will save a repair of between 1,000 and 3,000 euros, depending on the model.
Clutch. Its constant use increases the chances of wear, so be careful with gear changes and you will get rid of an expense that can skyrocket up to 1,300 euros. Another important tip is that you do not keep it on traffic lights: you will avoid burning it and it will deteriorate faster.
The elements that make the engine run
Timing belt. This piece synchronizes the movement of all the elements that make the engine run , so its breakage can cause any of them to hit it and cause damage worth 2,000 euros.
If the incident occurs when you drive at high speed , broken parts can impact others and make repair more expensive . Avoid changing it according to the manufacturer’s instructions or every five years, to stop its erosion.
Turbo. And we reach the queen of breakdowns
Are you one of those who likes to run and gives preference to horses when they are behind the wheel? Well be careful, because if it breaks down you can get an invoice of up to … 5,000 euros!
