AUTOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE DATA BASE FOR MODEL YEARS 1976-1979. PART II: APPENDIX E AND F

An update of the existing data base was developed to include life cycle maintenance costs of representative vehicles for the model years 1976-1979. Repair costs as a function of time are also developed for a passenger car in each of the compact, subcompact and mid-size body classes. In addition, a cost comparison of engine and transmission repairs is made for a typical domestic full size passenger car and representative imported passenger car over the projected vehicles' lifetime of 100,000 miles.
