Life Cycle Cost could well be called the REAL cost of a motor vehicle. Most people think the cost of a vehicle is simply the dollar amount of the up-front purchase price. This is not at all a complete answer. While the initial cost does impact the overall Life cycle Cost, there are many other elements that impact the real cost by thousands of dollars.

Life-Cycle Cost is defined as - the overall estimated cost for a particular vehicle, including the total costs for: Depreciation, Fuel, Maintenance and Repairs and Cost or Use of Money to acquire the vehicle over an estimated useful term, based upon mileage or age of vehicle.
