My cheapest car to run based on maintance
I was crunch some number today and found which one of the 4 car I owned are the cheapest to run.
Here is how turned
1.Cavalier 01 .06 per mile retired at 71,190 2200 motor
2. Bonneville 92 se .08 per mile 173,000 3800 motor (if car contune to run how it has been it will take 1st spot)
3. Corsica 94 .13 per mile retired at 225,000 3100 motor
4.Mailbu ls .14 per mile 106,000miles 3100 motor (this will get higher because as I have to replace the ignition switch whcih $255 and replace the 02 no light but should be doing better then 24 mpg, )
The other note I will make at mailbu is I just got januray we have not put whole miles on it yet only 3056 miles so their really isn't enough data to rank the car.
for the bonneville we driven that car the second most at almost excatly 30,000 miles since I bought it which was year and half ago. The bonneville taken out the parts it need when bought actual comes out about .02 per mile. IT has only had minor problems and actual has actual ran for about 17,000 miles without real any problems. I am also still restore this car,but need very little only 1 interior compent, small paint work, The old car alarm need to be fix I will do this be upgrade it.
For the cavaler owned that car for 3 and half years and drove about 32,000 miles and olny thing major wrong with was blowing the head
The corscia I drove 11,320 miles but barely had the car for year that car had many problem due to lack of care previous owner. It had list of about 30 things wrong with and was growing when I called it enough. The bonneville replace this car, it just wasn't worth fix any more,but still A good deal only bought the car for $100.
