But a breakdown firm has revealed some habits could be costing owners thousands of pounds in repair bills for new clutches, fuel pumps and engines.

Ranjen Gohri, from 24/7 Home Rescue, said: “We all have driving habits – some good, and some bad.
“And most Brit car owners realise that neglecting maintenance and ignoring dash warning lights are a bad thing.
“But in our experience very few understand that the actual way they drive their vehicle can also have a massive impact on its health.”
