The Top Five Issues with Our Car That We’re Currently Ignoring

posted: June 19, 2019

If your “check engine” lights comes on, what do you do?  Take it straight to the shop, or ignore it for a while and hope it turns off?

A new survey found 1 in 7 drivers are currently driving around in a car that potentially has a serious issue.  And 29% of people who’ve had their “check engine” light come on have waited over a MONTH to get it looked at.

The average car has three things that aren’t working the way they should.

Here are the five most common car issues we’re currently ignoring . . .

1.  A rattling sound.  17% are currently ignoring it.

2.  Brakes that squeak or grind, 15%.

3.  The “check engine” light is on, also 15%.

4.  A cracked windshield, 14%.

5.  A leak coming from somewhere under the car, 14%.

The survey also found 28% of us have talked to our car while driving it . . . 32% have thanked it for getting us somewhere in one piece . . . and 19% of us drive around with a lucky charm in our car.
