In a recent report by financial website 24/7 Wall St., Ohio was determined to be the third least expensive city for car repairs. The only states less expensive were Michigan and Indiana.
This comes on the heels of Ohio being ranked the fifth least expensive state to own a car in, based on one-time purchase costs and ownership/usage costs. The recent "Fix Your Car" report takes into account a state's average labor cost and average parts cost, which Ohio ranked eighth and fifth in, respectively.
However, according to the report, Ohio had the 15th highest percentage of roadways that are in poor condition, which probably doesn't come as a surprise to anyone who commutes to work.
In case you're wondering, the most expensive state to own a car in California.
