    What does it cost you to run your V annually?

    Since the V can do school trips and track days, what is the cost of running the V often. I understand the mpg and regular maintenance/insurance but what about the cost of keeping the car in great track day shape....and using it for dd? Thanks!

    Don't know, don't want to know. Those types of analyses is often what drives people into Toyotas and Hondas.....

    Here's my stats for the last 365 days. Note no maintenance costs because it was under warranty with free oil changes and such, so this is pretty much entirely gas costs.

    Xaqtly, but IDGAF. I suppose I could've bought a few Prius's and a Leaf instead, but I'm not that kinda guy.

    Don't forget insurance and registration.

    There was a point that I had a boat, three motorcycles, and two Corvettes. I have a company vehicle for work, so nothing else was getting driven nor ridden much. I sat down one day and just figured up insurance and registration costs on all of them for one year. The next day, I had a literal garage sale. Everything was sold in 30 days except one car and one bike...

    Registration costs in Nevada are outrageous. My two year old V is still around a grand a year to register.

    I'll be happy to pay your Nevada registration costs if you will pay my Virginia income tax....

    And there ya go.

    A fire truck costs $750,000 in both Nevada and Virginia. They'll still come to your burning home an spray water on it free of charge, no mater where you live. The Gubberment has to get the money to pay for that fire truck somewhere. Nevada has no state income tax, and real estate tax is on the low side. They make up the difference by making our license plates out of gold...

    You're still better off than VA. We have state income tax and personal property (car) tax.
    I don't want to say how much tax $ my V cost but it was more than NV.
    Think that's bad? My in-laws moved here from FL and brought their car, which was already paid for, and they just got a tax bill for it!

    Nobody gets screwed more than us here in CA! Gas costs more here, registration costs more here, insurance costs more here and you can't get a CCW!!

    I haven't figured out the cost of owning a V here in CA as I want to avoid being depressed.

    Absolutely! NV and VA are way better off (well from a tax and cost-of-living perspective) than CA...though I suppose NY, MA, and other states (I intentionally omitted an adjective like "blue," etc....) are not far behind CA.

    Uh oh......I sense a threadjack has occurred......

    Chicanerous... and deplorable!

    Yeah registration in NV is murder, I had to pay the same almost $1k as FLTRI to register my V last month. It's almost $1k every year.

    LOL!! CHIRLISH!

    My V is about $500-$600 per year to register and my 2009 FLHX is $170 so pretty damn close to NV.

    What does it cost you to run your V annually?

    Much less than the therapy sessions I'd need if I didn't have one.
