I'm a motors expert… newer car's 'suck' – they are made cheaper and will cost thousands in repairs | The Sun

A MOTORS expert has revealed why he thinks newer cars "suck" – and how they could cost you thousands.

Scotty Kilmer says modern vehicles are often made on the cheap – and it's drivers who may end up paying the price.

"And it's bad enough that they then made cars with these baby, mini spares that you can't drive very well on.

"But today most new cars don't come with any spare tyres at all – what a pain if they get a flat.

"And why do they do that? Because it's cheaper to make them that way.

"So if you don't know if your car has a spare, open the trunk and look inside because if you think you have one you get a flat tyre ad you don't, you're up the creek without a paddle."
