The 7 Most Expensive Cars With the Highest Maintenance Costs



The 7 Most Expensive Cars With the Highest Maintenance Costs


When you’re driving a luxury vehicle, you expect to be pampered. You pay more for them, after all. It can cost you a penny when something goes wrong with the car, especially if you’re driving any of these ten most expensive cars to maintain. These vehicles were compiled by CarMD’s list of the seven most expensive cars with the highest maintenance costs, from classic collector cars to modern-day supercars and hypercars.

CarMD is an automotive diagnostic company that created this list based on research into its database of over 2 million vehicle repairs and some interesting insights into why certain cars are difficult (or expensive) to repair. The company found that age, year, and make/model factors affect price in this category. The price range for repairs ranged from $1,000 up to $40K+.

Why These Cars Are Expensive to Maintain?

In a nutshell, these cars are expensive to repair because they’re expensive to buy in the first place. The first and most obvious reason is that you’re paying more for the car itself. If you’re spending $40,000 on a new vehicle, it’s not unreasonable to expect that getting it repaired will cost more than fixing up an old clunker.

Another factor is the availability of parts—when only one manufacturer is producing those parts (and no aftermarket companies), finding replacements for them can be difficult or even impossible. It also depends on where your shop is located. Suppose they don’t have access to regional distributors specializing in selling parts from specific brands. In that case, repairs will inevitably be delayed as manufacturers ship replacement items across long distances at a high cost.

Finally, there will always be some variation in repair costs when comparing independent shops versus dealer-supported facilities. A dealer typically has access to better deals on materials and labor than independent mechanics do, so if you have any choice about who does repairs for your luxury ride of choice (or lack thereof), choose carefully!

You’ve probably never heard of the Bentley Mulsanne. It’s a luxury sedan, and it ranks as the car with the most expensive repairs. The average cost to fix one is $1,300—more than any other vehicle on this list!

Bentley owners spend an average of $3,000 a year on maintenance and repairs. These cars have an engine made of gold and diamonds that can only be repaired by a certified Bentley mechanic who has been trained in the secret art of “fixing stuff.”

A Mercedes-Benz S600 will cost you a pretty penny to repair. The car itself costs about $200,000, but the priciest part is the engine—it can run up to $80,000 in repairs and maintenance.

Also, this car has a ton of safety features that aren’t even standard on other vehicles yet! You can add them if you want extra peace of mind for your family, but they may be outside your budget at first glance.

If you’re looking for something more affordable but still stylish and safe, the Honda Civic ($14k) is always available. It’s an excellent choice if you’re just getting started with driving and have no plans on buying an expensive vehicle anytime soon!

3. Land Rover Range Rover

The Land Rover Range Rover is a high-end luxury SUV that, as we all know, comes with a lofty price tag. And when it comes to repairing costs, this vehicle has only gotten more expensive over the years. In fact, according to data from Consumer Reports and Kelley Blue Book, repairing a grippy Landy will set you back an average of $14K—and that’s just labor costs! Add in parts and other miscellaneous expenses (like getting your Range Rover painted after an accident), and you’re looking at around $25K total before you even start driving again.

While it may seem unfair to compare repair costs across cars with such different styles and purposes—after all, how can another vehicle compare favorably when one is built for off-roading?—the reality is that every car has its unique set of problems, which means they all require specialized parts and expertise from mechanics who are familiar with what makes each model unique. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some models worth investing in if you’re looking for something reliable but still want something fun!

4. Audi A8L W12 and Volkswagen Phaeton

The Audi A8L W12 is one of the most expensive cars to repair. It has a $2,170 repair cost because of its extensive repairs and high parts costs.

You could also pay as much as $12,500 for repairs if there were any issues related to your suspension system or if there was an issue with your air conditioning unit in this luxury car model!

A repair price is based on several factors, including the year, make, and vehicle model.

When you’re looking to repair or replace a part, the price of the part is only one factor in determining how much your car will cost to repair. Several other factors will affect how much you pay for repairs, including:

  • The year, make, and model of the vehicle
  • The severity of damage to your car (i.e., whether it’s just cosmetic or if it affects driving capabilities)
  • Whether a part is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty
  • Location – some parts may be more expensive in certain areas than others


It’s time to wrap up this article. Here’s a quick summary of the facts we’ve come across:

  • The Ferrari 250 GTO is the most expensive car to repair, at $5.25 million.
  • The McLaren F1 is the second-most expensive car to repair, at $5 million.
  • The 1963 Shelby Cobra is third on our list at $4 million, followed by the Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster at $3 million and Ferrari 250 GTO as fourth at $3.9 million (yes, it goes way up!).

Of course, cars aren’t just about their value—they’re also about how much fun they are to drive and how unique they look! We hope this article has helped you understand what makes your favorite supercar unique and why it could cost so much if something happens during repair work for insurance purposes!
