Motor insurance, fuel, tax, etc. It all adds up.
Dec 29th 2016, 8:30 PM 38,749 79

ONE OF THE MAIN issues for consumers in 2016 has been the rising cost of motor insurance.

Increases of upwards of 300% have been reported by motorists with claims that insurance companies are engaged in ‘unspoken co-ordination’ over prices.

Added to insurance, taxes, fuel, the NCT and repairs all mean the cost of owning a car is as high as it’s ever been. So is it still worth it?

Our poll, Is owning a car worth the money?

Poll Results:

Yes, expensive but still worth it (8977)
No, but I still have one (5662)
No, I don't own one because of cost (1761)
Yes, it's not that expensive (926)
I don't drive (700)
