The Auto Quiz Is Back. Are You Game?

Kudos and a big congratulations to Troubleshooter and Ron M. Both correctly answered the question "What's the most complex car at RepairPal?" The BMW 7 series, the Mercedes-Benz S class, and the Lexus LS600h Hybrid are in a dead heat to be the most complex vehicle we've encountered. All these cars have in the neighborhood of 100 CPUs on board. That's the equivalent of some 100 laptop computers! Thank you to all the good sports who played and their thoughtful answers.

Are you ready for the next question? Here it is.

Question: Which vehicle has one of the most expensive regular maintenance services? (Hint: it takes more than 25 hours to complete this typically simple repair.) You'll get extra points for naming both the car make and model, and the specific service type.

As always, the first person to deliver the right answer will receive loads of fame here on the RepairPal blog.

    The Ferrari Enzo has something in the neighborhood of a $2000 oil change. Not that I know from experience of owning one.

    I think there are some amphibious vehicles that require regular under-chassis inspections, but i don't recall the make/model. Other than that, i would have to guess the spark plug service for the Aston Martin V8. My rich friend was always complaining how much it cost for this service, and this guy was RICH!

    Wow I have no idea but I'll have to go with the most expensive car to buy that I know of, the Bugatti Veyron. What's 25 hours of labor when you're spending $1.5m upfront?
