Latest News: Hyundai has topped the 2018 JD Power Survey as the most reliable car brand. The Korean manufacturer achieved the least faults per 100 vehicles in the study, which measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of vehicles in the UK after 12-36 months of ownership. The most reliable 13 car brands in the UK were volume brands in the 2018 study, which determined dependability by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality. Hyundai ranked highest in overall with a score of 78 PP100, with Suzuki second with 87 PP100, followed by Kia with 94 PP100. Premium manufacturers fared the worst in the survey, with Mercedes-Benz - the best-performing premium brand - achieving 14th place in the table. The 2018 UK Vehicle Dependability Study was based on responses from 13,536 owners of new vehicles registered from February 2015 through February 2017.

TYRE SAFETY MONTH KICKS OFF WITH A QUESTION ? ARE YOU HAVING A GOOD OR BAD AIR DAY?

TYRE SAFETY MONTH KICKS OFF WITH A QUESTION ? ARE YOU HAVING A GOOD OR BAD AIR DAY?

As Tyre Safety Month kicks off, TyreSafe has a question for you – Are you having a Good or Bad Air Day? It’s likely you’re having a bad air day and don’t even realise it.

That’s because more than half the tyres on Britain’s cars and vans are being driven underinflated. That increases their chances of being involved in a tyre-related incident on the roads. Not only does the vehicle become more difficult to control, the amount of tyre in contact with the road can be halved. If it isn’t touching the road properly, a tyre’s grip is compromised, meaning it takes longer to stop, especially in the wet.

Driving with underinflated tyres also runs up unnecessary bills. A tyre can wear 10% more quickly if it’s 10% below the manufacturer’s recommended settings and the extra effort needed to turn the wheels means the vehicle burns use more fuel.

In fact, research by TyreSafe shows an extra £600* million is potentially being spent on fuel bills by drivers because their tyres are underinflated. It’s also adding to the amount of CO2 the vehicle burns.

To reduce the risks while driving and save themselves money, drivers are reminded to check their air pressures at least once a month and before long journeys.

Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said: “Keeping tyres properly inflated is easy to do, keeps drivers and other road users safe, and saves money. It’s a win-win situation so it’s remarkable how many motorists don’t ensure the pressures are correct for the vehicle and the load it is carrying. Tyre Safety Month is the ideal time to start the routine of ensuring every driving day is a good air day.”

Vehicles typically have two tyre pressure settings. These will need to be adjusted depending on whether the vehicle is fully loaded or has a light load. Most vehicles have these displayed either in the fuel filler cap, door shut or even glovebox, but they will certainly be in the owner’s handbook.

Don’t forget to check the spare tyre at the same time and be sure the tread depth is above the minimum limit of 1.6mm and it’s in roadworthy condition without cuts bumps or bulges.
