Thousands try out online calculator
Published 23/01/2013 | 05:00
THOUSANDS of motorists have tried out a new way of checking how much their car is costing to run.
Motorcheck.ie and Renault Ireland launched the online calculator last November.
The Carculator.ie website gives users the means to estimate the running costs of their car so they can compare it with others.
Tax, fuel, routine servicing, tyre costs, repairs and NCT costs are all calculated for you – so you see how much your current motor is costing you.
Carculator.ie then gives you some options – obviously from the new Renault range since the French maker is involved – and shows you how you can save money.
