Typical cost of car repairs

The scenario: You're buying a new used car. You've found the model you want in the perfect colour combination and it's in the right price range. You have carefully explored the finance options, paid your deposit, you have also evaluated and change in insurance premiums too.

But have you figured in the cost of maintenance for your new car? We all know that it can be expensive to keep a car in proper working order, but we don't always include that in our financial plans. Consumer Reports estimates that over five years, 4 percent of the total cost of your vehicle will be spent on repairs and maintenance. That doesn't sound like much. That is, until you have to pay for something big like a broken transmission or a turbo issue, for example

Having said this cars are more reliable now than they have ever been, the problem is that the labour costs to get them fixed is going up and up, with some dealers charging anything from £50 to £120 per hour and some main dealers much more.

Regular maintenance and care of your car will help to keep bills down but you can't eliminate the possibility of costly electrical and mechanical breakdowns. That's where Warranty First can help, our used car warranty options are available for any car and can be tailored to suit its age, mileage and your personal preference.

Typical costs of repairing a BMW X3

The BMW X3 has loads of all round room, performance, efficiency & style and is a pleasure to drive.


We first saw the BMW X3 back in 2003, the original E83 X3 was built until 2010, when it was replaced by this F25 model. BMW revamped the 4x4 in 2014, while an all-new, third-generation example is due in 2017.

The figures quoted are actual claim payout's and are therefore real examples of the likely costs to you unless you have adequate warranty cover.
