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.

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

Wonder how it would work out if they broke it down by model. Something makes me think that my 19mpg GC isn't going to win a whole lot of competitions that take "cost of fuel" into account.
