“Luxury cars and European models tend to have the highest repair costs, so you may want to start your search with Asian and American cars. Typically, parts for these cars are cheaper and more widely available, whether you decide on an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) part directly from the company or an aftermarket part.
Plus, repairs on more common cars cost far less than the specialized knowledge needed to repair rarer or luxury vehicles.
Cars with the lowest repair costs include the following:
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Honda Accord
  • Toyota Prius
  • Kia Soul
  • Ford Mustang “
