PRESS RELEASES AND INDUSTRY NEWS FROM CONCORDE AUTO CENTRE
The place to find press releases from Concorde Auto Centre and what's new in the automotive services industry
Fuelling furious motorists
“Nearly half of British motorists are driving less because of rising fuel costs,” according to http://swns.com.
Continental Tyres revealed that motorists are spending a shocking £30 each week on petrol, with 81% confirming that their motoring costs have risen in the past 12 months. Due to this increase around 80% of potential car buyers consider fuel consumption as a key factor when purchasing a new car.
The good news however is if motorists stay vigilant when it comes to car maintenance and monitor their driving habits they could save a significant amount each year. “Tyres play a key role in fuel consumption, a fact which is often overlooked by drivers – a survey found that 2.5 million motorists never check their tyre pressures”, reports http://swns.com. Visit your local Concorde Auto Centre with tyres from only £25 as well as expert advice.
The Daily Mail online reveals “high road and fuel tax and the poor state of the roads were among the most vexing issues” motorists face, which seems to be the biggest drain on our bank accounts. Worn or underinflated tyres are a huge waste of fuel not to mention the cause of carbon emissions, both of which can be easily avoided by regular checks.
When it comes to buying a used car the colour motorists are drawn to is green – a used green car that’s low-cost to buy and run. The top five used economical cars, according to http://cars.uk.msn.com are: Vauxhall Astra 1.7 DTi, Toyota Prius, SEAT Arosa 1.4 TDi, Smart Fortwo and Vauxhall Corsa 1.0.
There is a lot of emphasis on being ‘environmentally friendly’ and as a car owner there are ways you can achieve this. By checking the pressure of your tyres every couple of weeks you could be making sure your vehicle has less rolling resistance – resulting in reduced fuel consumption and more economically friendly driving.
Unfortunately Concorde Auto Centre can’t change the price of fuel but they can service your car for only £60 and ensure your car is running as efficiently as it can. Visit www.concordeautocentre.com for more information.

"Excellent service from start to finish. Highly recommend.They'd forgotten to include something in the quote, and charged for it virtually free, fast, efficient, stupendous value for money and courteous service. And, if you are a woman, virtually every other car place in Peterborough talks to either your husband/partner/random male with you or to your 'chest area' which I hate with a passion - Concorde people seem to appreciate that a grown woman (even a none technical rather dim one!) has the nouse to own a car, and more importantly, pay the bill!!Incidentally, while I was picking my car up, there was an incredibly rude and unreasonable customer giving one of the guys a really hard time and the way he (the concorde employee) dealt with it was very impressive customer service (I'd have lost my cool, but he was ultra professional the whole way) "
