Car finance drivers are, along with the rest of the motorists in the UK, under attack from the current economic climate. And to add a good pinch of salt to the wounds, it has been revealed that rates for garage labour are now at a record high.

Apparently, the average for a mechanic fixing a part on your car has hit £190 per hour. The cost of labour has risen by 5.8 percent over the last year, but its not all bad news, as according to Warranty Direct, using an independent garage instead of a main dealer garage still pays dividends – So much so that they are 40 percent cheaper.
