Budgeting for Auto Maintenance In Orlando, Florida

Everyone in Orlando does their best to budget for scheduled vehicle maintenance.

What’s hard is planning for unexpected car repairs.

The truth is that our vehicles can stay on our Florida roads longer than ever before with proper maintenance. That’s because of improved vehicle design and manufacturing quality. But some of those same improvements also lead to higher repairs costs for every car or vehicle.

There’s a tool that can be found on Edmunds.com that you can use to prepare your service and repair budget.

Let’s suppose you have a used Toyota Camry – a very popular car in the Orlando area…

It’s now paid for and you’d like to keep it running for the next three years. You can go to Edmunds’ True Cost to Own calculator and enter your vehicle’s data. The calculator will provide estimates of what it’ll cost to service and repair your vehicle in Orlando over the next five years. The estimate’s based on where you live in Florida, manufacturers’ recommendations and repair experience for your particular model.

Keep in mind, these are just estimates – there’s no way to predict what’ll actually happen to the car in your driveway, but it’s a good starting point. The calculator also has estimates for depreciation, financing, insurance, taxes and fuel costs.

Some folks in the 32822 area are afraid of what can go wrong with their older car, so they buy a new one. That’s fine if you really want a new car, but if you properly maintain your older vehicle, you’ll save a lot of money on new car payments and insurance. It just makes good economic sense.
