Vehicle Lifecycle Cost Analyzer

Wow, it's sponsored by Toyota and the Echo comes out on top in subcompact. Funny.

(though from what I've read in CR and other places it sounds about right)

What sort of "Vehicle Lifestyle Cost Analyzer"
neglects to include the Max Headroom skateboard?

gah! Does the nav menu blink for everyone else or do I really need to leave work!?!? I was like trying to time my click so I'd hit while the link was there, then gave up.

Am I alone in finding no VW's? Or is it a Safari glitch?

Nope, not Safari stonerose...no VWs for me either...maybe no one considers them as fleet cars?

Weird.

There are lots of cars missing there. No hybrids, no BMWs, Mercedes, or large SUVs.

Also, these calculations assume some really cheap gas. (at least compared to southern california)

Maintenance cost for a Cadillac Seville SLS: $1228. For a Honda Civic: $1222. For every car listed: Around $1200.

Somehow, this seems unlikely.

I asked for a comparison between a Honda and a Ford, and it gave me a table with Toyotas...

Does not work with Firefox. Just gives tables of Toyotas.

Looks like you may found a Toyota ad instead of an actual 'cost analyzer' website. 'Zip 4 Tweens' or 'Cool 2 B Real' anyone? (sponsered by America's beef producers)
