Jeep Brand Ranked 3rd Lowest In Total Cost of Ownership

Jeep Brand Ranked 3rd Lowest In Total Cost of Ownership among all of the brands sold in the US

-Morgan Stanley Research.

“Based on data from Edmunds, we accounted for depreciation, fuel cost, insurance, maintenance/repair and other costs to arrive at an estimate of absolute cost to own over a five-year period.”-Morgan Stanley Research."


Acura was #1... and in last place, by a wide, wide margin - Land Rover.

Re: Jeep Brand Ranked 3rd Lowest In Total Cost of Ownership

Nicely done, though the analysis obviously excluded cost of modding.

Re: Jeep Brand Ranked 3rd Lowest In Total Cost of Ownership
