7. Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 is the only pickup truck in the top 20, costing $13,300 to maintain over 10 years. YourMechanic didn’t have a breakdown for the Ram brand itself, but it’s a possibility that it was grouped in with Dodge, which came in 10th place overall with a maintenance cost of $10,600.
6. Dodge Grand Caravan
The Dodge Grand Caravan may be on its way out now that the Chrysler Pacifica has arrived and it will be interesting to see if the Pacifica is cheaper to maintain over its lifetime. Hopefully maintenance costs don’t carry over to the new minivan, since the Grand Caravan costs $14,500 to maintain over 10 years.
5. Chevrolet Cobalt
The Chevrolet Cobalt is no longer around, but that doesn’t mean current owners aren’t paying $14,500 to maintain it over 10 years. Chevrolet as a brand landed right in the middle tied for 15th place with a cost of $8,800.
4. Mercedes-Benz E350
Like the Audi A4 Quattro, German luxury cars have a reputation of being costly to maintain. In this case, it’s the Mercedes-Benz E350 with a cost of $14,700 to maintain over 10 years. Mercedes finished second overall with a cost of $12,900.
