One of the most common questions we at Allen Samuels Volkswagen get from drivers in Norman shopping for a new car is, “Is a Volkswagen expensive to maintain?” After all, European models are often associated with niche parts and pricey maintenance, so it’s natural that some drivers are cautious about the VW service cost. However, on closer analysis, you’ll see that the Volkswagen repair cost and monthly services are well within the average compared to other popular car brands. But don’t just take our word for it! The service team at Allen Samuels Volkswagen has all the details on how the VW maintenance cost compares to other brands in the guide below.

How Do VW Service Costs Compare?

Not only are Volkswagen models not astronomically expensive to maintain, a 2016 study from YourMechanic found that VW maintenance and repair costs are actually well below the average! The article lists the average service costs of 30 popular brands over a ten year period, and Volkswagen costs were lower than 21 other brands. This means that the VW maintenance cost is lower than two-thirds of its measured competitors. 

How does Volkswagen maintain these low costs? There are a lot of ways, with the foremost being the comprehensive new vehicle limited warranty and a robust CPO program, both designed to keep maintenance costs low and affordable for drivers in Edmond and beyond.
