Here at your Monroe Dodge and Jeep® dealership, we know there are a lot of factors that go in to picking a new car. Size, speed, comfort, extras, and of course, cost. But one factor that can be harder to pinpoint is the long-term costs of car ownership. What will fuel, insurance, and maintenance run you in the future? Although this can be difficult to determine for sure, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com is here to help. The popular vehicle valuing resource recently announced the winners of their 2016 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, which honor models with the lowest projected ownership costs for the next five years. Kelley Blue Book estimates this cost based on carefully collected data, and considers factors like expected fuel costs, finance fees, repair costs, depreciation, and more.

If you’re worried about what your new car is going to end up costing you over the next few years, you can ease your mind by visiting our dealership. KBB.com honored a Dodge model and a Jeep SUV in this year’s 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan was at the top of the Minivan/Van category, marking the second time in three years the model has won this award. And the Jeep Wrangler made a repeat appearance as well, winning in the Mid-size SUV/Crossover segment for the second year in a row.

Thanks to Kelley Blue Book, drivers looking for a new SUV or minivan can find a vehicle that they know will not only be a great car at an affordable price right now, but also one that won’t be too expensive down the road. If you’re interested in a car that won’t drain your wallet over the next five years, come visit us today and test drive a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan or a 2016 Jeep Wrangler. Dundee and Toledo drivers are only a short drive away from one of these honored models, which can be found right here at Monroe Superstore.
