Least Expensive Cars to Repair
Repair costs can be a huge hidden expense, especially if you plan on keeping your vehicle for a long time.
The study looked at the repair costs incurred for each model over a one year period.
The 2009 Toyota Corolla had the lowest average repair cost at only $45.84 followed by the 2008 Honda CR-V with $91.25 in repair costs.
