Modern cars are packed with all sorts of complex electronics and sensors that can help drivers to better understand how their vehicle is behaving. But while manufacturers are developing new ways to help cars to talk to their drivers, it seems that their efforts may be falling on deaf ears.
Research by GoCompare shows that actually, we don’t all know our cars as well as we might think. Their most recent survey showed that 28% of British drivers don’t know how to turn on their fog lights, 47% don’t know their car’s recommended tyre pressure, 60% have never read their car’s manual, and 48% don’t understand their dashboard warning lights.
On the latter issue, GoCompare have launched an interactive dashboard warning guide to be used to learn more.
Your cars dashboard lights not only alert you to any safety issues, but they can also help to save you money. Being able to identify issues early means avoiding more serious problems in the long run, helping you to save on costly repairs.
Complete our quiz below to see how well you know your dashboard warning lights – and let us know how you get on!
