BMW and Chevrolet lead the top 10 rankings of car manufacturers with the most expensive engine repairs, according to our latest research into claims data. As one of the leading breakdown coverage providers for nearly two decades, we know a thing or two about engine repair costs for various makes and models.
Our experts analyzed thousands of automotive repair claims within the first six months of 2020 to find out which car makes experienced the highest costs for engine repairs, such as Chevrolet, BMW, and Ford.
Adam Karner, Endurance auto expert, says: “Our latest data shows that Endurance customers with BMWs and Chevrolets had to pay the most in engine repairs, while those with Jeeps, Chryslers, and Cadillacs had to pay the least. The top 10 ranking is a function of engine reliability and the cost of car engine repair: a BMW engine is typically more expensive to repair than a Ford engine.”
Having to replace or repair an engine when it fails is usually the most expensive problem you can face as a car owner. In some cases, the cost of repairing or replacing the engine can be so high, it makes more sense to cut your losses and buy a new car.
If you suspect something is wrong with your car’s engine, the worst thing you can do is to continue to use the car and hope for the best. Not only do you risk getting stuck somewhere in the event of a breakdown, but you also risk it turning into a much more expensive auto repair. It could result in serious damage to the engine.
If you’re on the road when you notice the problem, don’t risk more damage by driving around. Pullover and contact your car dealership or mechanic.
If you notice any of the following things, you should get in touch with your local car dealership or mechanic immediately:

For small engine repairs, you’ll most likely pay a few thousands, but of course, there are many variables: the make, the model, etc.
If you want your engine to last longer—and why wouldn’t you?—it’s of vital importance you keep up with the recommended maintenance schedule. This means consulting your owner’s manual and making sure you know when certain checks and routine maintenance jobs are required. Jobs such as oil changes, topping up your coolant, and getting regular services should all be considered essential.
When a check light comes on, make sure you address it as soon as possible. And if you get juddering, misfiring, clunking, or other clear indicators something isn’t working as it should, make sure you get it looked at right away. Continuing to use a malfunctioning car can lead to serious damage and engine failure—often as a result of excessive heat being generated.
