Even so, it's a pretty bold claim. Even if you adjust for historical inflation (I don't really know his time frame, so I can't really adjust) and say that going forward he's only expecting to pay $500/year, that's still quite cheap.- JoelI gave you an example, Joel:1992 Ford Escort purchased in 1996. 2013 - 1996 = 17 years.Original cost of the car: $2200Cost of replacing the clutch: $500I also had to have the time belt replaced once (I forgot to mention): $5005 brake jobs (3 front, 2 rear jobs), $75 each: $3752 sets of tires: $550.I think that totals around $4,125, and dividing that by 17 years I think totals a little less than $250/year.
