Car maintenance is very rarely a cheap topic of discussion. Drivers quite often spend a pretty penny maintaining their car or truck. But some certain cars and trucks cost a lot more to maintain than others. Vehicles that come to mind first are German vehicles and even many modern cars. As vehicles get more advanced in terms of design, it will take even more highly-trained professionals to keep the cars on the road. It will also be more difficult for drivers to stay within their budgets.
Gone are the days of working on your car by yourself. It’s almost impossible on a modern vehicle. Automakers are doing this on purpose because you will have to use their service centers much more. We looked at 40 cars that are expensive to maintain and why drivers want to avoid them.
