I've got two newer cars so here's the maintenance, mostly from the dealer, before 30k and for the next 30k (it may not be representative, but it's what I have):

2003 Honda below 30k: $133.
30k to 60k: $2,210

2004 Honda below 30k: $100.
30k to 60k: 2,544.

It may not be totally representative, but it does eat into the savings from depreciation.


You don't have to take the vehicle to the dealer for this maintenance. You can do it yourself, or have someone else do it. You just need to document it.

We've never taken a vehicle to the dealer for one of those recommended maintenance intervals, and do it ourselves instead. Much less expensive, and it can be done more at my convenience.
