Sharing vs. Owning
Car Sharing Means Cost Sharing
Let’s face it, owning a car is expensive. When you total up your purchase/lease payments, gas, maintenance, insurance, and registration costs, AAA estimates that it costs the average American $7,835 to drive a sedan 10,000 miles per year. That’s $650 per month or $78 for every hundred miles, much more than just the price of gas!
Our general rule is that if you drive less than 10,000 miles per year and don’t need your car to get to work every day, carsharing instead of owning could save you money. See our rates or trip cost calculator for more information.
