The Most Expensive Luxury Cars to Maintain

About our Rankings

When buying a car or truck, the salesperson doesn't want to talk about what it will cost to maintain and repair that vehicle over its lifetime. They don't want you to focus on those unpleasant, but inevitable costs. We, however, do want you to focus on them, as they are a major cost of owning a vehicle. It will determine over time whether your car is a great value, or a money pit on wheels.

As the advocate of car buyers, we believe that transparency is what consumers need and deserve, and we have provided you just that in the rankings below. Importantly, as you will see, we list for you the makes and models that perform well, as well as those that don't - and those numbers may shock you. For our research, we have analyzed over 200 vehicle makes and models, and millions of automotive data points over the years to ensure that we provide you the resources you need to make more informed, educated vehicle purchase decisions. We hope that you find the brand and model rankings below helpful. Click here for the individual models.
