Is a Volkswagen Expensive to Maintain?

FAM 18 1064 ApprovedArt 3 (1)

Are Volkswagen cars and SUVs expensive to maintain? It’s a question we’ve heard more than once. Quite a few Washington DC and Springfield drivers associate European models with especially high service and repair charges, but the truth is, monthly VW maintenance costs are well within the reach of most drivers!

Although imported parts can sometimes be expensive, your VW service costs and VW repair costs are likely to be much lower than those paid by many other drivers.

How Do VW Service Costs Compare?

In a recent study from YourMechanic, VW maintenance costs and VW repair costs were found to be well below average. In a list of 30 popular auto makes, Volkswagen service costs were lower than the service costs for 21 other brands, over a ten year period. That means Volkswagen cars and SUVs are not expensive to maintain, relative to other brands.
