Are Volkswagen cars and SUVs expensive to maintain? It is a common question we hear at Allen Samuels Auto Group. While many drivers are under the impression that it can be pricey to care for European models, that is not the case. VW maintenance costs are actually much more affordable than you may think.

Imported parts can sometimes be expensive, but did you know that VW service costs and Volkswagen repair costs are likely to be much lower than those paid by many other drivers? Let’s take a closer look at how the costs stack up.

How Do VW Service Costs Compare?

YourMechanic recently performed a study that evaluated VW maintenance costs and Volkswagen repair costs. The study revealed that the prices for VW maintenance are actually well below average. Thirty different auto makes were looked at over a 10 year period, and Volkswagen service costs were found to be less expensive than the service costs for 21 other brands. That means Volkswagen cars and SUVs are not expensive to maintain when compared to other automakers.

There are a couple of reasons why VW repair costs are quite affordable. One of the main reasons is that Volkswagen vehicles come with an outstanding warranty. That means that you don’t have to worry about paying out of pocket for covered components.
