3. General Motors
Average repair costs: $304.99
Index rating: 0.91
As GM puts some distance between itself and its government bailout, its cars need fewer repairs and fewer dollars to complete them. Although GM's average repair cost inched up 5% from $290 a year ago, it's much less than the 18% percent hike in repair costs it experienced then. It's also one of the lowest averages on this list and spans 11 vehicles in the top 100, including four Buicks, five Chevrolets and two GMCs. That includes the 2012 GMC Sierra, the top-ranked vehicle in the truck category, and the 2011 Buick Lacrosse, which ranks No. 1 among luxury vehicles.
