When deciding to choose Mercedes, of course, the owner must have a firm grasp of the financial ability and have the necessary plans to maintain or simply ‘raise’ the car throughout its life cycle. According to statistics, maintenance costs for Mercedes cars in the first 10 years of use are always among the most expensive in the market.
Hearing the name Mercedes, it is not necessary to say too much about the class and luxury that it can bring. Simply, the position of Mercedes has always been in the top of the luxury car market. The members of the Mercedes family are not only for moving, sheltering from rain and sun, but also bringing intangible values but very good value for its money.
But Mercedes is a luxury car, and must go to the bottom of the hair. Right from the time of purchase to every process of maintaining and using the car.
According to the Mercedes car maintenance price list, the maintenance cost of Mercedes cars usually falls in the range of 4,500 – 5,000 VND/km. Therefore, if the car goes about 100,000 km, the car owner needs to invest up to 450 – 500 million VND just to maintain the car. Half a billion dong, in Vietnam you can probably use it for many needs, or even buy a brand new small sedan.
For car owners who are already fans of the Mercedes line, all have more or less experience to help minimize this expense. Experience shows that if you follow the correct car maintenance schedule with the regular maintenance schedule of Mercedes cars, the amount of money you have to spend to maintain your pet will be significantly reduced.
Take for example the Mercedes C200 model. During the first 2 years of use, following the company’s recommendations, car owners spend about 100 million to keep the car running smoothly and reliably. But if you save money, be afraid and just wait for the car to have a problem to repair, then the amount will double, 200 million is normal.
Thus, on average 1 year of running a Mercedes, the maintenance cost alone falls to about 50 million. Of course, we have to add regular expenses including gasoline, oil, road tolls, car insurance, car parking, etc. Mercedes car owners share the number will range from 12-15 million/month, for the whole year. will cost about 150 million. Therefore, the temporary final cost for 1 year of using Mercedes cars will be 200 million. This is one of the main reasons why not everyone is ambitious enough to own this brand.
The numbers if above are only for new car use, within the first 10 years. If you choose to buy a used car, the burden is even greater now. Considering the initial car purchase price, the maintenance fee of course cannot be low.
The car is old, surely the components are no longer durable and must be replaced more. Older cars also mean the possibility of ‘sickness’ is also greater. Material insurance for used cars cannot be as low as new ones, because the durability has simply declined over time, insurance companies have also calculated it. And last, not least, is the old car, the engine capacity decreases, leading to more fuel consumption.
Indeed, when deciding to choose a car as a regular means of transportation, spending money on buying a car is probably not as important as how you maintain it.
