What to expect after the 4 yr warranty!

After picking up my car from service today i thought to myself, "what is this gonna cost me after the 4 year warranty expires." Everything in the car is electronic and run by computers aka breaks down easily and expensive as hell to fix. I will probably continue using the dealership to service the car. In your general opinion, what can i expect?

All one can really say it that if anything breaks, it will be expensive to fix. You may be very lucky, and have no major trouble for a number of years, but it's tough to say at this point, since all the cars are relatively new. Once these cars start hitting 40-50+K miles, we'll have a better idea of the longer-term reliability picture.

If you are just slightly handy with a wrench, you can do routine maintenance (e.g. oil and filter changes) yourself. If you are really, really, really knowledgeable, you can do many more complex repairs yourself. However, as you no doubt know, these cars are rather complex and require expensive diagnostic equipment for many repairs and that equipment is out-of-reach for a "shade-tree mechanic."
