The True Costs of Car Ownership

In Saskatoon we love our cars. In fact in 2010 for the first time in Saskatoon’s history, there were more vehicles in the city than people. If we knew the real economics behind car ownership, perhaps it would give us pause and question why we individually own our cars (most cases two or more per household). An interesting article by Stephen Leahy shines a light on the true costs of car ownership. The numbers are telling us that individual car ownership costs Canadian a lot of money, with very little return on investment.

Perhaps it is time for all of us to take a closer look at the costs of car ownership and accept the fact that the best economic move is to let go of our cars and seek alternatives such as public transportation, biking, walking and of course CarSharing.
