Australians charged $761 million each year for car batteries

A new study has revealed the impact flat batteries have on Australian consumers, and how prone we are to replacing them instead of recharging. The study, which was undertaken by research firm YouGov and commissioned by accessory company CTEK, found Australian consumers spent $761 million on car batteries and 8 million collective hours waiting for a battery replacement during the last 12 months. It also found Australians are three times more likely to replace a flat battery than recharge it.

Skoda offers 'clever' approach to service and ownership

The Skoda mantra of being 'simply clever' has progressed from the cars themselves to the complete ownership cycle, with the launch of the Skoda Care package in Australia. The Skoda Care product allows buyers to bundle in their three- or five-year service costs at the time of purchase, meaning that aside from petrol and key consumables (tyres etc), there are no further 'out of pocket' running costs for the ownership period.
