Honda named most pothole-proof brand
* Honda tops pothole list * Chryslers susceptible to pothole damage * 309 average repair bill because of potholes...
Honda cars are best-equipped to cope with potholes on UK roads, with only 1.4% suffering significant damage as a result of damaged roads.
The cars most likely to suffer pothole-related suspension damage are Chryslers, which have a 12.2% chance of damage in an average year, according to Warranty Direct. Overall, there's around a 6% chance of any car suffering such damage in an average year.
'We've found some cars have an uncanny ability to absorb the jolts from even the most severe road craters, while others aren't so resilient,' said Duncan McClure Fisher of Warranty Direct.
He also pointed out that luxury brands, such as Jaguar, Mercedes and Land Rover all featured in the least-resilient list.
'Particularly surprising is that high-end manufacturers are just as vulnerable, if not more so, than 'value' manufacturers.'
According to Warranty Direct, the average pothole-related repair is 309, but some have been as high as 2420.
