Every year, Kelley Blue Book compiles lists of the best cars in varying categories and it is always an honor to make it to the top of their lists regardless of what category they are rewarding. When you are considering the purchase of a new car, you shouldn’t just dive into that decision. At Dominion Motors, we hope that our customers are not only happy when they sign on the dotted line, but remain satisfied for years to come. Our shoppers have typically done their research and they know that a Buick car in Thunder Bay is the best option for them! It is just icing on the cake when Kelley Blue Book validates our customers intuition!
Every year Kelley Blue Book awards cars in various categories with the annual Cost to Own award. The winners were announced this month and three Buick models were among the winners!
- Best Entry-Level Luxury Car: Buick Verano (5-year cost to own: $39,513)
- Buick Encore-Best Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover (5-year cost to own: $39,917)
- Buick Enclave-Best Luxury Full-size SUV/Crossover (5-year cost to own: $57,161)
When determining the total cost to own of a new car, it is important to look beyond just the sticker price in the window so that you aren’t left with any surprises. You may also be pleasantly surprised to find out that one car might have a slightly higher sticker price than one in a similar class, however once you calculate the total cost to own, you may find that it is actually a cheaper option in the long run. Total cost of ownership is calculated by adding fuel, insurance, repairs, maintenance, financing and state fees and then adding the total depreciation (the difference between what you paid for the car and what it will still be worth in 5 years) and you will arrive at your 5 year total cost of ownership.
