Least Expensive Cars to Repair

A report released this week by CarMD, which collects repair data from its netowrk of 3,000 U.S. mechanics, shows that Toyota and Hyundai have the lowest repair costs among all car brands.

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.

Surprisingly, luxury brands fared the worst - not because of high repair costs, but because they needed repairs more often.

Here are the final rankings by car manufacturer:

  1. Toyota
  2. Hyundai
  3. Honda
  4. Ford
  5. GM
  6. Mitsubishi
  7. Nissan
  8. Kia
  9. Volkswagen
  10. Chrysler






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
