In the 7 years I have owned this car I have spent about $4500 on maintenance and repairs and that includes brakes, new tires, 60 and 90K service. This is approx. $650/year which is phenomenal. The car has about 95K miles now and the car still runs like it is new. I absolutely love this car and will probably keep it for another 7 years. If you maintain this car well it will easily run past 200,000 miles.
