Hi friends, New forum member here...
I tried posting this elsewhere but didn't get a response.
I've been considering a Boxster but I've heard some strange things about maintenance costs. (I don't like to feel like I was burned by a dealer or mechanic - it is frustrating!)
For example, I understand changing a battery on a Boxster can cost $400. And I was told an oil change costs $500-$600 (anyone know how often this oil change comes round?). I also read that tires for a Boxster costs a couple of grand (although I don't understand why I can't use good Bridgestones for less that $1000).
What are some of the other maintenance costs, both high and normally priced? Do you guys thing a stubborn man can adjust himself to such charges and learn to live with them? Or would I be better off to go get something like a new Vette and replace batteries for $50?
