The article does separate the two

Viper
Maintenance - $8,209
Repairs - $2,114
So, in essence, they had to include the maintenance cost because without it, they wouldn't have a story. Funny how they titled it specifically as "Repair Costs", yet the biggest factor is the maintenance. Is this what passes as journalism these days? :(

Alot of luxury cars on the most expensive list but that does not really surprise me at all. Repair costs do generally go up considerably when you enter luxury car territory but I was surprised to see that half of Land rovers current lineup managed to make it on the expensive list.

Over 5 years what are your repair costs? Your warranty normally lasts three to five years, and cars are generally very durable between say the first year and the fifth. Viper probably calls for 3000 mile oilchanges with Mobil 1 and needs tires that cost 1500$ minimum for a set.

Does it take into account normal Viper mileage or does it expect the car to be pushing 70 or 80 000 miles at year 5?
