Between 2019 and 2025, the global automotive industry is expected to develop rapidly, with light vehicle sales rising from approximately 95 million to over 106 million. The growing tendency of car modernization, such as electric and hybrid vehicles, has raised the likelihood of costly automotive parts. The market for automobiles is expanding, and so are the prices. Although every automotive part has its unique value and price, there are some substantial parts which are as expensive as they are needed. In this article, we will discuss the most expensive automobile components. Let's have a look at them together!

Engine

Engines 

Would you ever feel pleased if you were told, "You need an engine repair"? Ever wondered why it is like this? Well, obviously because it can cost you a lot of money. There are different types of engine damages. Engine cylinder damage is the most serious and costly kind of engine damage. In the event of cylinder failure, which is located at the heart of an engine, the entire engine may have to be removed. This could cost you up to $10,000 as a one-time payment. Although engine failure is quite uncommon in the long run, depending on your automobile type, the engine is still the most expensive component. 

So now you know that an engine could cost you your whole salary or even more. Why not maintain it before it breaks down? Not sure how to take care of your engine? Let us tell you then!

Batteries

Batteries 

One of the dreams that a car lover always has is to fantasise about his or her car running only on a battery without gasoline. So, if you own a hybrid car, you should know that the battery used in it is hugely expensive. Replacing a single defective battery in a hybrid vehicle may cost up to $6,000. Batteries by default are built in a way that they lose their ability to charge with the passage of time. It will not be wrong to say that changing a battery is equivalent to changing the brain of your car. But as they say every problem has a solution so there must be a way to make your batteries last longer. 

Batteries

Weather is one of the leading factors towards affecting a car battery. A running engine already produces a lot of heat so warm weather can add into early battery failure. Weather measures should be taken in order to prevent a battery failure due to scorching summer heat. Other precautions could include limiting short rides, tightly fitted battery, avoid using electronics while engine is off could help.

Tires

Tires 

If your car has everything in it and it doesn't need any maintenance but its tires are out of order how would you feel? Yes we got it you would feel bad and what about your pocket? That would feel even worse because a huge amount is about to be spent on new tires. After engine and batteries, tires are the most expensive components of a vehicle. There are a thousand ways to keep your tires maintained but why not choose something smart to avoid this hassle? Take a step into the future of tire management with Continental's intelligent tire.
