Lamborghini £15,000 engine fault tops Warrantywise poll of most expensive repairs


A Lamborghini Murcielago, with a major engine mechanical repair bill of £15,000, has topped the list of the most expensive repairs paid out for by WarrantyWise.

Following the Lamborghini (pictured) in WarrantyWise’s second and third largest payouts were a Porsche 911 and a Maserati 4200 with bills of around £10,000 each.

The average monthly cost of WarrantyWise cover for each of the cars is £82 and £146 respectively.

Gearbox repairs for an Aston Martin Vanquish and DB9 cost just under £10,000.

Repairing the ECU in a Ferrari 360 came with a bill of nearly £2,000, with a similar amount required for wheel bearing repairs in a Ferrari 355.

An air-conditioning fix in a Maserati GranTurismo resulted in a £1,885 payout from WarrantyWise and replacing the water pump in a GranTurismo Spider commanded a repair payout of £2,278.

Even the more run of the mill cars aren’t immune to a crippling bill, though, with payouts of more than £5,000 each for a Renault Grand Espace and Volkswagen Passat.
