I’m at 163k miles. Approx $15k in maintenance since 65k miles. I’ve owned for about 6-7 years. Most dependable ride I’ve had. Maintenance cost is strictly parts; from fluids to wipers. I have been able to diy all of my repairs. Great DD IMO

lol. $15k? I never ever tally up totals spent on vehicles. That shit is madness. I can't handle the truth, so I don't seek the truth.

^I'm in the midst of tallying up my spend for the 4.8is. It's not looking pretty. But mine includes mods so that drives up the figure in a hurry.

i got my records logged into excel, it automatically calculates the totals...

i'm into it $37k including purchase price.. so approx $500 a month to drive. those avg's will go down the longer I own the vehicle (or up if anything big happens).. haha

^$500/mo. Yikes, that's ~$32000 new car payment at 0-1% interest. Haha, I hope my 4.8is treats me gentler than that... or rather treats my wallet easier.

Never put the cost.
I track maintenance of my vehicles too. I don't put the amount I spent.

I am tracking what I'm spending on my ZHP tho. Just because that's a project I plan to flip shortly. Otherwise. I don't wanna know.

Depending on where you look for the value, I dropped 2-3x the value of mine in maintenance and repairs last year. But the damn thing runs. It feels brand new. It looks like a car 1/2 its age and 1/3 the miles.

Today's milestone is nothing compared to some of them in this thread, but I'm hoping it's ab 1/2 of what I get before I do it all again!

Wow. That's a lot. Have you owned it since new?
How has it been, any major failures or repairs?
Are they very rare in Germany?
I've never seen one there in all my visits.
