Last year was heavy, $4000 in parts for all 6 cars and about $2000 of that was on the V70T5 , the V70 NA, and the S70

The S70 had about $1000 of upgrades and Cosmetic refurbishments and the E83 was a PM money pit this year

Total miles driven on fleet was 65000 miles

To clarify, do we include consumables like oil, filters, tires? Guess so, just to confirm.
I hadn't considered that when I created the poll, but wish I had. No consumables here, just parts. I'll edit the head post to make that clear.


Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

I'm averaging £131 per month over my 20month ownership, but that's including purchase of the car, cosmetic repairs and consumables. Haven't worked it out minus those as they're perhaps the most important of parts...! That value is constantly dropping though, as I started with a T5 that had been sitting for 8 months and had had two years of delayed maintenance. My first 6 months or so account for 75% of that cost.

Don't worry, Cookeh, there are alot of parts that can fail till you have everything replaced. So you won't have too much money left over to go binge drinking after your govt. finally decides to leave Europe ;-)
