Good things come in smaller packages.
At least, that was the conclusion from this MSN Auto article about the 2011 top 10 cheapest cars to maintain. According to the article, “Labor costs and the cost of replacement parts for small cars are usually cheaper.”
Topping the list is the Honda Fit, with a total five-year service cost of $2,937, although the Toyota Corolla is right behind at $2,991.
But the more important question is, do maintenance costs actually factor into your decision to buy a new car? What about a used car?
How much do you currently spend on auto maintenance per year?
