In an exclusive arrangement with the Automotive News Research & Data Center, We Predict is releasing average in-service repair costs per vehicle for 356 nameplates from 35 brands.
The data in this table are compiled from actual service records for model-year 2017-20 vehicles after 12 months on the road. It comprises warranty and service costs (excluding collision work), thereby reflecting money spent by owners and automakers.
The figures provide automakers and dealers a measure to benchmark the performance of their vehicles vs. that of rivals. Consumers, too, now have another factor to consider as they make their buying decisions.
The release follows We Predict’s first report, in May, on service costs per vehicle over the first three months of ownership. In October, the Ann Arbor, Mich., predictive-analytics company issued an analysis of service costs per vehicle in the first three years of ownership. The studies also reveal the comparative service costs of electric vehicles vs. those of gasoline-powered vehicles.
