Calendar year 2018’s most common ‘check engine’ vehicle repairs for…
The most expensive repair in the CarMD database in 2018 was “replace engine” ($7,150). This repair is indicative of the fact that cars are being made to outlast parts such as their engine. The good news is that most expensive repairs remain extremely rare in terms of %age of occurrence. The five most expensive repairs combined only account for less than one half of one % (0.41%) of all repairs seen by CarMD’s network of thousands of certified technicians last year.
The least expensive repair is “Inspect for Loose Fuel Cap and Tighten or Replace as Necessary” at an average cost of $25. The ten least expensive repairs account for roughly 5 % of all needed repairs.
