Brake pads and discs are the most common reason UK fleet vehicles enter workshops according to an “authoritative” new UK service, maintenance and repair (SMR) Top 20 released by epyx.
The table is based on information from the company’s 1link Service Network platform, used by fleets totalling four million cars, vans and trucks to buy and manage SMR from nearly 9,000 franchise dealers, independent garages and fast-fits.
The data shows the percentage of invoice line items for a range of SMR actions for a 12 month period from the start of September 2019 to the end of August 2020.
Brakes discs and pads are by far the most common job, accounting for 16.3% of all SMR carried out. Completing the top five are windscreen wiper blades (5.6%), pollen filters (4.4%), fuel filters (2.2%) and batteries (2.0%).
