Don't Let Potholes Affect Your Car's Performance
Bad weather can leave the roads littered with potholes. Not only are these uncomfortable to drive over but they can also cause damage to your car that you may not even notice. As well as damaging your tyres, hitting potholes can affect the wheel alignment, suspension and even your brakes.
Why are potholes so troublesome?
- Potholes are a major factor in causing axle & suspension failure, which counts for a third of mechanical issues on UK roads
- Authorities currently pay out more than £30 million in compensation claims due to poor roads
- Road maintenance in England and Wales is underfunded by around 55%, or £1 billion every year.
Correct wheel alignment and balanced suspension is essential for your car's performance.
