CAR RUMOR: The cost of repairs for cars that break down is soaring.
The cost of repair for cars which break down has risen by an average of $2,300 per car each year since 2004, according to a report by the National Automobile Dealers Association.
That’s according to an analysis by the AA, which compiled a detailed report on the cost of the repair industry.
It found that the average cost of repairing a new or used car each month for a family of four rose to $1,000 from $750 a year earlier.
A study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found the average annual cost of replacing a car was $1.4 million in 2015.
“As people’s driving habits shift towards autonomous vehicles, it is expected that these vehicles will be subject to a much greater degree of wear and tear,” the AA said in its report.
Insurers are also concerned about the increased risk of damage caused by the driver’s distraction, such as texting or watching a video.
But the AA report also found that while the average repair bill for a new car went up by $2.6, it actually dropped by $200 a year, or an average price of $3,700.
Automakers are increasingly relying on the repair market to help them keep their cars running and drivers happy.
They’re also spending more to get their vehicles serviced.
Since 2004, average repair costs have risen by $3.4 billion per year, according the AA.
Some companies are doing more to improve the way repairs are done, while others are making the problem worse.
AAA says the industry is investing $7.3 billion on repair technology over the past five years, with more than $1 billion being spent in 2017 alone.
However, the AA’s analysis found that more than half of the total repair bill is spent by companies on “purchase, repair and installation”, meaning the cost for a replacement part or service is passed along to the customer.
If the car breaks, the insurance company is likely to take out a repair loan, but it can only be used for up to 12 months, and the cost is likely going up.
Even if the car is repaired, the cost can add up.
In 2018, the average new car cost $6,842 and the average used car cost about $4,600.
For a car that is on the road less than five years it will cost an average $4.2 million to replace the vehicle.
And if the vehicle is lost or stolen, the price of repairs could increase by more than 50 per cent, according for an insurance company.
