Consumer Reports finds maintaining cars for 200,000 miles can save owners thousands of dollars

In the October issue of US magazine 'Consumer Reports' , an interesting research is published which spells good news for the Automotive Aftermarket. In a survey of 6769 readers with more than 200.000 miles on the clock it was found that it pays off to keep and maintain the cars for a long time rather than change it in after 3 - 4 years.

The report gives the folllowing example: 'Consumer Reports estimated the popular Honda Civic EX, with an automatic transmission, could potentially save its owner as much as $20,500 if properly maintained over 15 years — $1,500 more than its purchase price.'
