Warranty Direct, the aftermarket warranty provider has calculated the average winter breakdown bill to be £408. When they carried out the exercise they found that the most frequently claimed items were ignition coils, thermostats, fuel injection pumps, and central locking motors. They stated that ignition coils were the most likely of the components to fail in winter with there being a 283% greater chance of failing in the winter than in the summer. The most expensive to fix are automatic torque converters, which take longer to hit operating temperature at this time of year, along with automatic clutches which can cost £1,100. Warranty Direct recommend that you minimise cost and inconvenience by having your car serviced regularly. By Graham Hill
