We’ve all been faced with the decision of getting a car fixed or selling it either to a garage (if we’re very lucky!) or to a reputable car buyer, like Sell The Car USA.
Some cars are more expensive to fix than others. Typically, the more exclusive the car, the more expensive they are to fix. Parts are sold at a premium and in some cases have limited stock availability.
When faced with a fault, car owners must decide if it’s worth fixing or if they’d be better off selling the damaged or broken car. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s look at the most expensive cars to fix. Pay attention to each, you might find your car amongst them!
One of the most recognisable American car brands, Dodge produces some the more recognisable vehicles on the road, Viper, Charger, and Ram trucks.
However, Dodge vehicles are notoriously difficult to maintain, posing the question of if it’s more cost effective to sell a damaged car over paying potentially thousands to have it fixed. In fact, a Dodge RAM 1500 can cost over $12,000 to fix, depending on the issue(s), of course.
Well-known for their trademark Quattro all-wheel drive system and their combination of design, luxury and power, Audi’s are amongst the most desired German vehicles. However, when something goes wrong, they’re not cheap to fix.
Now, depending on the extent of the damage and the age of the vehicle, it may make sense to sell a broken car because Audi’s can cost upwards of $12,400 to fix, depending on the extent of the damage.
Drive around any city in the USA and you’re likely to come across a Saturn or two – something unsurprising when you consider they’re one of the most popular cars in the US.
However, on a second look, you might be surprised to see that a fair proportion of Saturn’s are older than you may first think. Does age automatically make Saturn’s less reliable? Well, no. But, with plenty of miles on the clock, comes the risk of a breakdown.
This is the same for any car. But the difference between Saturn’s and some other car manufactures is that they can cost a lot to repair. In some case, as much as $12,400!
Many car-savvy American’s dream of owning a Cadillac. However, as desirable as they are, Cadillac’s aren’t necessarily renowned for their reliability, ranking 26th out of 32 for breakdown reliability.
Of course, older Cadillac’s are more affordable, but potentially less reliable. The cost of fixing a serious problem can set you back $12,500 or more, which begs the question does it make sense to sell a broken car to a reputable car buyer as opposed to spending tens of thousands of dollars to repair your broken caddy.
Rounding out our list of the most expensive cars to fix is another German powerhouse – the BMW. Like Audi, BMW’s feature German engineering and are synonymous for their performance and luxury.
Most models are quite reliable, albeit not reliable enough to compete with Japanese counterparts of Honda and Toyota, but BMWs are expensive to fix – like really expensive.
Depending on the age, model, and extent of the damage, fixing a BMW can set you back as much as $17,800. At that price, the best decision may well be to sell a damaged car – saving yourself close to $20,000!
Should I Sell My Expensive Broken Car?
The reality is that fixing a broken car doesn’t come cheap. The more extensive the damage, the more it’ll cost. Older cars, especially those with 100,000’s of miles on the clock could end up costing you more than the car’s value to fix.
Sell an expensive broken car to a car buyer, like Sell The Car USA, and you’ll get the true value of the car. Best of all? We will arrange a FREE pickup at a time to suit you!
