Thanks to Warrantywise for helping us create this video –

This survey has been calculated using data taken from the extended car warranty data held by Warrantywise and the repairs they have received. A spokesman for Warranty Wise said: “Warrantywise does not release data for cars unless we have a minimum of 100 vehicles as a sample amount. This data relates to claims between 2010 and 2020 and may not represent the reliability of new vehicles as all of the data in the set is for vehicles over 3 years old.”

If anything on this list goes wrong with these cars on this list then it might as well go to the scrap yard

I own an Audi A5 and that’s scary! Fortunately, it has only done 60k kms! 🙂
Also, there were too many German cars and especially, cars from VW in this list!

Dont misslead the viewers. Buying cheaper car doesnt equal cheaper parts. Well the more car costs the more orginal parts will. It doesnt matter what car you use , its gonna cost a lot

£2680 for a Nissan micra radiator? Which dealer did he take it to? Cause there is no way the part is over £250 , so that means the remaining £2430 was labour? The job at the very most is an hour and half if your on a go slow, some ones deffo been submitting some dodgy claims on that one

This are just not real! You can't expect anyone to belive that a Nissan micra radiator is £3000
And Audi a5 timing chain £5000, if the chain brakes then yes fixing the engine will probably be even more

To make this narrative more relevant, you need to mention how often / likely it is for those parts to need replacing. As in the likelihood that they'd actually break and need replacing. That would then put the cost of replacing the parts more into perspective.

Where do you pull these numbers from? An asshole?

Seat Ibiza turbo for example from Seat Dealer retails approx £1200
Oil feed and return approx £70
Exhaust gasket , new bolts / nuts in total approx £75

Labour to fit – 5 hours.

So how do you get those ridiculous figures?

As an aside, warranty wise are a big scam, they refuse to pay out on Valid claims (google bmw M5 warranty wise)

I own a 2013 Kia Optima. New price was just under 16k pounds. Kia wants 220 pounds for 1 new headlamp bulb (xenon). I luv the car for its size and reasonable power, but dread the thought of an enjin or xmission packing in. Oh the horror.

Old news . Haynes Manuals did this years ago. They stripped a Ford Escort. And went to a dealer with a full parts list to build a complete car was something like 8 times the price of a car off the production line. That's where the manufacturer makes the money.
That's why the dealers and manufacturers will try anything to squirm out of warranty repairs.

Please do a video where you "repair/replace" the whole car (every part of it). A VW Polo would probably cost 100.000 Pounds.

2600 Pounds for a wiper Motor ? This is a ripoff .. I worked for a European high quality supplier which produced wiper motor systems among other products (Famous one), do you know how much the wiper motor actually cost on average for passenger cars ??? 25 Euros. Yes 25 Euros, and I am sure of this because when we used to send those motors to other company locations overseas for testing or other R&D purpose, we had to make an actual Bill, and the Bill was with the part cost, was 25 Euros every time.

Repairs on Turbo engines are expensive.

That’s why it’s called ‘up’. Every time you get a repair bill, you heat the words ‘shut up!’, followed by ‘up yours!’

What gets me is how some will say you need a new this, or a new that, all of a sudden when you take your car in for a service, that the element just waits for a service to pop its head up

Most of the cars are rare car not many around. But I'm suprise about the micra radiator. But for vw. Those price are bullshit. Anyone can buy an used or aftermarket and slap it in urself or from a local mechanic
