When people go shopping for a new vehicle, they are often ready to move on from a vehicle that is giving them troubles with things breaking down or not working properly. With this in mind, the last thing people want to deal with is maintenance issues with their new vehicle, even after a few years of ownership. To help reassure drivers, we wanted to highlight the vehicles from Toyota that won Kelley Blue Book 2019 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.

When finding the vehicles that take home these awards, Kelley Blue Book takes a look at the total cost of vehicle ownership beyond just the basic monthly payment. For example, KBB looks at insurance and fuel costs, state fees, maintenance, repairs and value depreciation. The award winners then, of course, showcase the most affordable vehicles with all of these considered over a 5-year period.
