Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Autumn is a great time to purchase a new, or new-to-you, vehicle. Besides safety and affordability, maintenance cost is another key factor to consider when car shopping. Consumer Reports lists Chevrolet as one of the cheapest brands when it comes to the average 12-month costs for owners of 2014 and 2007 models. In year 3 of the study, the 2014 Chevy models had an average annual repair cost of $50. In year 10, the 2007 Chevy models had an average annual repair cost of $435.

HotCars also endorsed the low-maintenance fee reputation associated with Chevrolet vehicles. The publication recently ranked the top Chevy models with the lowest repair fees. (You might recognize several of these from our most rust-resistant Chevy models article.) Here are five Chevy models with low-cost maintenance, to help you narrow down which vehicle to bring home.

Besides being one of longest-kept vehicles on’s list, the Suburban model’s low-maintenance reputation stems partially from its truck frame construction. Truck platforms result in a more rugged vehicle than car-based platforms. It’s also another reason that the Suburban often exceeds the 200K mile marker when it comes to longevity.

Galvanized steel front fenders, one-piece bodyside outer panels, and thermal plastic olefin (TPO) bumper fascias are just three characteristics of the 2016 Volt’s structure. These durable materials are just a few ways that the Volt’s design helps protect it from major damages and overall wear and tear.

Like many of Chevy’s sedans, the Impala boats a rigid frame construction, as well as advanced safety features to eliminate the potential for an accident. Features such as Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Forward Collision Alert extend the driver’s line of vision. This model’s defenses make it more resistant to collisions, as well as the exorbitant costs associated with fixing such major repairs.
