    Abstract

    Maintenance and repair cost for vehicles not only determines replacement time but also decreases total costs. This study compares maintenance and repair cost of various vehicles manufactures (Buses such as Isuzu, Bedford, Hino-Pak; (Hiaces such as Toyota and Mitsubishi) and (Pickups such as Toyota, Mitsubishi and Nissan) to recommend an affective and economical manufacture for end users. Data for the study was collected from The Agriculture University Peshawar, Pakistan through mean accumulated maintenance and repair cost for company wise basis vehicles. During the last 11 years, the university has paid the highest amount of maintenance cost of Rs. 974667 and repair cost of Rs. 1279069 for the year 2009 and 2010 respectively, while the lowest amount of maintenance cost of Rs. 292842 and repair cost of Rs. 188558 for the years 2001 and 2000 respectively for all university vehicles.
