Kelley Blue Book Tracks the Lowest Cost of Ownership
Some awards are given out based on more solid criteria than others. But definitely, the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own award is one that Eatontown Mazda shoppers should pay attention to. KBB tracks such things as fuel, insurance, maintenance and repair costs, and the cost of fees from the state and financing to determine the lowest overall projected cost of ownership.
These sorts of things will all weigh on your wallet while you own the car. That's not even taking into account the biggest cost: depreciation or the amount of money you lose based on what your car is worth years from now versus the day you bought it. Based on these factors, Kelley Blue Book has compiled a list of winners for 2013 models.
Eatontown Mazda Dealer Announces 2013 Winners
On the brand level, Mazda and Lexus earn the 5-Year Cost to Own award for having the lowest overall projected five-year totals (though, curiously, Mazda and Lexus each had only one segment winner). In addition, there are a lot of winners that aren't generally considered competitive in their segments still do well from a cost-to-own perspective.
The Jeep Patriot, for instance, won the Compact SUV/Crossover segment, while the Mitsubishi Outlander scores for the midsize SUV/Crossover group. For hybrids, the Honda Insight costs the least over five years, while the admittedly small segment of pure electric vehicles is lead by the Chevrolet Volt.
