Cars can be an expensive necessity. We need cars to get to work and back, to pick up our kids from school and practice, and everything else we do throughout the week. Even the most money-savvy people can’t escape car maintenance and repairs. While most of us can expect to pay a fair amount of money for our car maintenance, there are some cars that require a lot more. With more expensive and specialized vehicles you can typically expect more expensive bills to tag along with them. These have been reported by owners as some of the most expensive cars to maintain and repair — assuming you don’t do the work yourself.
As one of the more affordable cars on this list, the Ford Focus is a surprise entry that actually can have high maintenance costs. Yearly, a Ford Focus owner could pay over $1,100 in fuel, maintenance, and repair costs alone.
In addition to those costs, some Ford Focus owners have reported issues with door latches and motor faults. Some of its pricier repairs are replacing fuel pumps and hose replacements which can range from $500-$1,200.
