Consumer Reports Names the Worst-Value Cars on the Road
The magazine, which recently ranked the Toyota Prius as the best value for your money, said the 705Li costs $1.80 a mile to drive. "With frustrating controls and a below-par ride, the 750Li didn't score well enough to be recommended and racked up one of the worst predicted-reliability scores," the magazine wrote in its roundup.
Consumer Reports measures value by weighing five-year ownership costs, predicted-reliability scores and road test scores and coming up with a cost-per-mile figure. The biggest factor in five-year ownership costs is depreciation – how much owners can sell their car as used.
The winner, the Prius, costs just 49 cents per mile to own, compared to the BMW750Li's $1.80 a mile to own.
