This survey has been calculated using data taken from the extended car warranty data held by Warrantywise and the repairs they have received. A spokesman for Warranty Wise said: “Warrantywise does not release data for cars unless we have a minimum of 100 vehicles as a sample amount. This data relates to claims between 2010 and 2020 and may not represent the reliability of new vehicles as all of the data in the set is for vehicles over 3 years old.”

  • To make this narrative more relevant, you need to mention how often / likely it is for those parts to need replacing. As in the likelihood that they'd actually break and need replacing. That would then put the cost of replacing the parts more into perspective.

  • Old news . Haynes Manuals did this years ago. They stripped a Ford Escort. And went to a dealer with a full parts list to build a complete car was something like 8 times the price of a car off the production line. That's where the manufacturer makes the money. That's why the dealers and manufacturers will try anything to squirm out of warranty repairs.

I worked for a European high quality supplier which produced wiper motor systems among other products (Famous one), do you know how much the wiper motor actually cost on average for passenger cars ??? 25 Euros. Yes 25 Euros, and I am sure of this because when we used to send those motors to other company locations overseas for testing or other R&D purpose, we had to make an actual Bill, and the Bill was with the part cost, was 25 Euros every time.

  • Parts guy from Finland here, with some thoughts: - Dual mass flywheels. When your flywheel goes, which it will, it'll set you back around 1.5k€ in parts plus many workshop hours because it isn't a simple job to do. The manual transmission is still the default option in many market segments and I don't get it. Automatics are easier to live with and more reliable, save for some VW group DSG transmissions of course, but yet people keep buying manual transmission cars to sit in traffic with all day. - Every car has that one part that's ridiculously expensive. On my biturbo diesel Insignia it's the turbo assembly, which means I won't be cheaping out out on engine oil services any time soon. If you have a Japanese car that didn't become popular in its day, chances are parts will have to be sourced at the main dealer at ridiculous prices. Brake dust shields for an old beaten Camry will exceed the value of the car, whereas for a normal Golf they're 20€ or so each. - Cam chain issues have been plaguing the VW group and many other manufacturers in the 2000's, at least in the Finnish climate. It's embarrassingly common for the

  • The moral of this video seems to be don't buy a French car as the electrics issues will cost a fortune. Matt has forgot to mention Kias have 7 year warranty so these costs will only apply on 8yr old+ cars. At least Renaults now have a 5 year warranty which offer some protection from ridiculous bills.

  • In my opinion , car part prices are like patrol prices. Fixed and and bloated to profit manufacturers. Probably done in some dark room. Example: my blind spot indicator on my Audi Q7 went for $200! It is basically a plastic shell with 4 led’s. I can buy a high discharge led flashlight ( torch, forgive the NA slang) with batteries included for $39.95! Such is life.

  • 15% to 20% of the new car price sounds bad, but these prices are a much bigger percentage of the car's residual price today. So much so that if many of these relatively modest failures can't be addressed from a breakers yard they are writeoff events. He mentions this for the Up at the end of the video, but with high depreciation rates it seems it should be true for a number of the cars described.
