Carmakers with the Highest and Lowest Maintenance Costs over 10 Years

Recommended Posts

I got the short end of the stick. A Land Rover made from BMW bits and bobs. 

So I'm actually even above number 1 

Honestly BMW have some of the shittiest overcomplicated engineering I've seen. 

Next time round I wouldn't touch anything that BMW even looked at.

Up to the mid to late 90s Mercedes was pretty solid and reliable. Guess that all went down the shitter later on

My first cars were all second hand Germans. Still young and wanted to be cool, all my money went into these money pits. But no responsibility yet, so I could justify it.

Then I decided to change my career and went back to study again. My Golf mk3 TDI gave it up and I needed something to transport myself. I couldn’t afford a car so I continued on my Honda CB. (Also in Dutch Winter). The first car I bought then, was a Daihatsu Cuore 3cylinder. Small ugly car, but it did the job. When I had to do some maintenance one day, came the moment of realization of the price difference to maintain. After my Daihatsu I “upgraded” myself with a Honda civic. Till today still best and cheapest car I’ve owned. 

This made me stick to the Asian brands.
