2019 Kinsey Report: Which Are The Cheapest Cars to Service and Repair?

Kinseyreport

The 2019 Kinsey Report has been released and if you want to know what cars are cheapest to service and repair then check out the details below.

The Kinsey Report details costing for parts and servicing on a variety of popular vehicles sold in South Africa across 8 categories, giving consumers a good idea of what to expect when taking a vehicle in for repair or servicing. 

Winners in each category are determined by costs of servicing parts (filters, spark plugs, wipers and brake pads), repair parts (cam belt, shocks, clutch plate, flywheel and fan belt) and finally crash parts (doors, fenders, bumpers, glass, lights and wheels etc.).

The winner is the cheapest in the 3 categories combined. While the report does its best to provide the consumer with accurate information, it does state that shopping around for parts can be beneficial as prices can and do vary. The Kinsey Report sources prices directly from dealers.
