Under-The-Radar Clunkers to Avoid

Dodge Ram 3500, BMW M5 Among Cars that Carry the Highest Out-of-Pocket Costs of Models This Year

Since July 1, the Cash for Clunkers program has spurred 358,851 vehicle sales valued at a total $1.5 billion, according to the Department of Transportation.

...

But owners of foreign cars might want to take a closer look at the government-backed initiative; many of these cars carry the highest out-of-pocket costs of any models this year.

The BMW M5 sedan, for instance, exacts an average of $5,700 for repairs and maintenance over five years, while the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster and E63 AMG Wagon fall closely behind, each with maintenance and repair costs of more than $6,000. By contrast, Honda's $23,550 Civic sedan costs $2,700 to repair and maintain for five years.
