The Cost of Neglecting Engine Maintenance
Neglecting to take care of an Audi, BMW, or Mercedes engine leads to the most expensive vehicle repair jobs. Data compiled by the operators of Angie’s List shows members pay on average between $3,000 and $9,500 for the installation of a new engine. The engine data represents the “average” replacement cost, not the cost of installing a new engine for vehicles in the luxury niche that include Fiat, Porsche, and Mercedes-Benz. Don Jones, who owns highly regarded Gordon Automotive located in Austin, Texas, states his auto shop rarely installs a new vehicle engine for less than $4,000.
