I currently own a Mercedes Benz but maintenance cost is high of it. I am thinking of switching to a Mustang. I will appreciate any insight.

    I’ve had 4 2015 Mustangs of every model. Currently have the Ecoboost and love it. 87 Octane gas, 26 avg mpg in traffic, oil filter and Ford Oil is less than $40 at auto part store for oil changes. 17 inch wheels and tires make All Seasons around $400-$500 per set. Two piston brakes in front make brake pads cheap too and easy to swap. 125k miles and haven’t had to replace shocks or struts.

      Is 87 recommended for Ecoboost? I've only owned the GT and I always used 93. And oil is more since 5.0 lol.

      This was helpful. Thank you. German cars are too expensive to maintain. Regular services costs more than $500 at dealership. And 91+ octane fuel is not cheap😭

      Regular Oil change with air and oil filter swap should be less than $100 all in for any model of 2015+ Mustang at speed lube shops, maybe a little more at ford dealerships. I do my own for less than $40. Also oil changes are every 10,000 miles not 3,000.

    Fairly low, even for the V8 fuel cost is fairly low. If you have bad roads, you'll go through more suspension parts because of how stiff the handling is

      How about regular services?

      Regular service is dirt cheap compared to a German car(except for oil change since it's a big engine and needs synthetic, same as the Germans), you can probably do it yourself tbh. That's what I did. Brakes are high performance but still cheaper than German too

    87 is ok for the Ecoboost and V6 on a stock tune. 93 is recommended for the GT.
