Re: Repair and maintenance costs
My old beast has managed:
2002: £1000 (highlight was clutch and gearbox @ £800)
2003: £1100 (Head Gasket @ £600)
2004: £500 (Exhuast, including flexi-pipe @ £400)
2005: £600 (front suspension complete @ £400)
2006: £600 (rear brake calipers, new front discs and new pipes @ £500)
2007: £600 (water pump @ £200)
To be fair to the old beast, it has been to Jupiter and back a couple of times now, so the big cost items are stuff just plain wearing out. All of the big items above lasted at least 120,000 miles.. the water pump (most recent failure) 190,000.
No bullets for Chaingun..
