February 10, 2014—A recent survey revealed that the average age of the top ten most repaired vehicles is 11 years old.

The company also released its list of the top 10 auto repair jobs for 2013, with brake pad replacement coming in at number one.

Other cyclical repair jobs, such as alternator, water pump, timing belt and spark plug replacement, rounded out the list.

"This top ten list is continuing evidence that consumers are holding and repairing their vehicles, and that the vehicles they are driving are lasting and serving their owners well," said Brian Hafer, vice president of marketing at "The most researched repair estimates are for parts that have a shorter lifespan than most of today's vehicles, and certainly than the average age of the top ten most repaired vehicles, which was 11 years."
