What Goes into the Cost of Owning a Car?

Owning a vehicle is something most people in the United States do, and for a good reason. If we didn’t own cars, vans, SUVs, and trucks, we couldn’t reasonably travel to work, unless you’re happy with leaving home hours before clock-in time to make it there.

It doesn’t take long to realize just how important cars are to our daily lives. However, you should never splurge on a ride unless you can afford it without any afterthought – even one. Fuel matters a lot when it comes to total cost of ownership. Daily work commuters of more than roughly 15 miles or 45 minutes of driving should aim to invest – not expend – in a fuel-efficient ride. Tire expenditures come around once every year or so, and can sometimes cost close to one thousand dollars. Further, fixing a flat tire is an emergency expense that you should be able to readily cover.
