Surprise results put BMW as least expensive make to repair
BMW ranked the least expensive car to repair.

Dipstix, the website dedicated to helping motorists manage their cars, has revealed that BMW, Mercedes, Honda and Toyota are amongst the least expensive car makes to repair, with Saab, Subaru, Hyundai and Skoda ranking as the most expensive.

The analysis is based on a first year’s database of over 330 repairs, on more than 130 types of vehicle, from 33 manufacturers.

Against an average repair quote of £286, premium makers Mercedes and BMW are the least expensive makes to repair, with average quotes of £211 and £209.

At the other end of the scale, Peugeot ranked fifth most expensive at £401, below Skoda at £442.

Volkswagen owners pay considerably more than drivers of other German rivals do, with VW ranking tenth most expensive at £334.

Servicing and MOTs are the most popular inquiries on the website and Ford and Vauxhall are the most frequently entered manufactures.

Rarer cars included an Aston Martin Vantage.

Dipstix Managing Director David Cederholm, said: “Interestingly, every single car we’ve quoted was between three and ten years old.

“This matches the prime opportunity for independent garages, as cars are old enough to be out of vehicle manufacturer warranty, but new enough to retain sufficient value to make them worth the cost of repair.”
