The recession has forced motorists to skip their annual service to save money according to HiQ, the tyre and service specialist.

New figures suggest that 36% of drivers have chosen not to have their cars serviced because they can’t afford the payments.

HiQ commercial manager Farrell Dolan said: “Relying on the MOT has been how a lot of motorists have been judging their vehicle performance.

“This has meant we are seeing a lot more vehicles arriving with major faults and minor faults that would have been picked up on a normal service.”

HiQ has devised two new service packages to combat the issue, with its new “Gold” and “Silver” services offering an affordable answer to maintaining your car.
