One of the most important aspects of leasing a car is looking after it. When you first receive your car, you should be given a copy of the BVRLA Fair Wear and Tear Guide, if that be from your broker or the leasing company itself.
The BVRLA Fair Wear and Tear Guide is the industry standard of which your car will be judged on when you return it to the finance house at the end of your agreement.
But, what is ‘Fair Wear and Tear’?
In this article, we are going to look at what counts as fair wear and tear, what happens if you incur charges and how to dispute them.
Do you ever hear your car make a weird noise and wish you knew what it was? What about a time when your car didn’t feel quite right? Have you ever wished you just had that little bit of extra knowledge about cars so you could know what was wrong without having to take it to a garage?
We’ve all been there. And we’ve also been at the garage hearing a mechanic tell us the very simple problem with the car that only takes five minutes to fix. If only you knew more about common car troubles, and how to fix them.
Well, cringe at your lack of car knowledge no longer. In this article, we look at some of the common problems people have with their cars and the best way to fix them.
Maintaining your car is one of the most important things when it comes to actually owning a car. After all, you don’t want to spend all that money on actually buying a car only to have to pay more for it to be fixed when it becomes damaged.
Of course, you also have to get it serviced and MOT’d, but what about maintenance you can do at home? You don’t have to be handy or a car enthusiast to carry out basic maintenance on your car, and it could save you money in the long run.
In this article, we are going to look at how you can maintain your car at home, and some top tips for looking after your car.
