UK’s pothole-proof cars revealed
Honda cars were recently revealed to be the most resilient to pothole damage, according to research by Potholes.co.uk.
The road maintenance campaign website, set up by Warranty Direct, analysed tens of thousands of policies to unearth the cars most and least susceptible to the nation’s biggest bugbear – potholes.
After Honda, the most ‘pothole-proof’ manufacturers are Toyota and Hyundai, with less than 2% of their cars suffering axle and suspension damage attributable to potholes.
Conversely, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benzand Land Rover models are the most likely to be defeated by the UK’s pothole-riddled roads, with more than 10% suffering damage each year.
