The annual cost for car repairs dropped slightly from $392.49 in 2013 to $390.38 in 2014, according to CarMD's 2015 Vehicle Heath Index. The report found that while labor costs were up 2.77%, parts costs were down 2.8%. Two new repairs made the top 10, both of which are caused by ignoring the car's check-engine light. If you see the check-engine light flash, call your mechanic promptly.
