Top 10 Most Expensive Cars to Service

What are the cheapest and most expensive cars to service?

Wednesday 5 September, 2018

Getting your car serviced is never going to be an expense you are happy to have, however it is unfortunately necessary and unavoidable. Naturally, some cars are more expensive to service than others, which makes selecting an independent garage a more appealing choice as a way of saving money. 

A recent survey published on, listed the top 10 cheapest and the top 10 most expensive cars to service in the UK. The figures were based on a sample size of 250,000 motorists and were  using costs of independent garages as opposed to a main dealership, which are considered to be more expensive than the independent garages.

The published list of the cheapest cars to service in the UK is:

Fleet Manager, Fleet Van Servicing Centre North London.

Whilst travelling to you you ordered the part, and an hour after my initial call my van was on the lift and a new starter-motor was being fitted. An hour later I was on my way back to work. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Not only did you go out of your way to keep us working, you did it at a very sensible price.
