Maintenance cost is a very important factor to consider when shopping for a car, either a brand-new or used one. Buying a new car, though, still comes with certain peace of mind as the first years (normally 2 to 3 years) of ownership always come with many beneficial warranty policies covering the costs for some repair services. Unluckily, maintenance costs are usually excluded, which means you will still have to pay for your regular maintenance such as inspections, oil changes and so on. Owning low cost maintenance vehicle will help you save a considerable amount of money in the long run.
