How Well Do Brits Really Know Their Cars?
Although we use them every day, a lot of us take our cars for granted. It’s easy to overlook just how incredible cars are, and forget about all the technology and moving parts that goes into getting from A to B.
In our 100-year history, we’ve seen some huge changes happening in the world of motoring, including the recent arrival of advanced hybrid and electric engines. The question is, do we still know what’s going on beneath the bonnet? Or are Brits keen to leave tweaks and repairs to the professionals?
As it happens, our recent research shows that Holts’ customers are more knowledgeable than we thought when it comes to cars, and enjoy tinkering under the bonnet. Even as vehicles get more and more advanced, drivers are eager to keep up with technology and understand the basics of fixing and repairing cars themselves.
And why not? After all, the internet has made it easier than ever to get information, help and advice on carrying out DIY car maintenance and repairs. Resources like the Holts blog provide loads of how-to guides for checking, fixing and repairing different areas of our cars.
Of course, there’s always a need for professional help, and mechanics continue to play a huge part in keeping drivers on the road. But we know that loads of you still like to get your hands dirty under the bonnet.
