Actual Cost to Own & Operate (ACO&O) tallies
the predicted five-year ownership costs for the vehicle’s first five years.
I spent 30+ years owning and operating passenger transportation companies. I learned early on to make an informed decision on which vehicles to acquire for the fleet I needed to know the actual cost of ownership and operation before buying the vehicles.
For example, a family might be considering buying a minivan. The dilema is which minivan is the best overall value for the money. Looking at fuel costs over five years, for brand-X, gas will cost $18,000, brand-Y’s cost will be only $11,000. Maintenance & Repairs for these two vehicles also can vary: They're more than $4,000 for the brand-X versus just $2,200 for the brand-Y. Add in depreciation and brand-X costs more than $12,000 than brand-Y. Either brand-X drops their price $12k or brand-Y gets the sale.
Forward the Year, Make, Model and Trim level for each vehicle and your Zip Code.
old adage says: “Knowledge is Power” With
the knowledge you will gain from our ACO&O data reports you will gain the
power to make a wise and informed buying decision and save the grief of making
a buying mistake.
