Default cost of ownership - 2003 Honda Pilot EXL

Thought owners may find this interesting. I compiled it today for my 2003 Honda Pilot EXL (purchased used in July 2007 with 38,000 miles). These costs are in Chicago area and exclude recall items, fixes under warranty and tires:

Interesting -- the difference between the 03 we had (before a friend of my
daughter's totalled it at 110k miles) My brakes (front & rear) went 75k
miles and cost $$300 at the dealer for pads only. Front struts were fine
even at 110k. Timing belt at 90k at $628.00. Don't recall the cost of
transmission and the 4wd fluid change, but everything else seems comparable.

OK, so the direct cost of ownership over five years is about $6k and
the loss of capital is about $10k, so that's $16k divided by 60
months, or about $260/month.

It's very important to him that you save more money by not washing it
very often.

for a fraction of that, you could have gone to evening classes and
learned basic car maintenance. not so you end up doing it all yourself,
but so you know when you're getting into and can ask a few pertinent
questions that signal the service writer that you won't play.

Jim beam - I can tell from your post here and elsewhere that you'd drive a thousand miles to save $10. Not too many share your level of frugality to put it nicely.
