Value of Preventative Auto Maintenance
Spending more than $700 annually on maintenance and repairs may sound like a lot, but it’s nothing compared to the added expense of buying a new car, especially if your current car is paid off. In fact, by some estimates, every five years you drive your car after paying it off saves you the monetary equivalent of a new car.
