Good to be more detailed.. I think it's helping people do their budgeting before committing themselves to buy a car.

My young nephew backed out after I explained all the possible expenses.. initially he thought it's simply buy car, road tax, insurance, parking and petrol.

He didn't think about the maintenance required..
And even servicing cat bought first hand with AD may possibly still need to pay for wear and tear stuff.

Insurance - $800

Petrol - $2000

Road Tax - $1500

Maintenance - $800

Depreciation - $7000

 

Yearly costs around there. So its about $1000+ a month if include depreciation. But for my own calculations I don't add in depreciation since I didn't take loan.

My annual costs :TT_TT:

Petrol - $6000 (for 28k km/yr)

Road Tax - $2400

Maintenance/Repairs - $2500

Tyres Care - $1000

ERP/Parking: $2400

Depreciation - $16000

 

Coming up with these numbers actually crystallises how much money we are wasting on our beloved rides...painful...

As many said before, if you are one of those that belong to the 70% group, then you shouldnt be grumbling about the rediculous price of car n related expenses....because you vote for it.

 

Oh, just to share, friend of mine in USA(Singaporean who moved there 15 years ago), just got a Porky(turbo-S convertible) fully loaded n sec-ed.  Paid in cash.  1/4 the price of what you would pay here.

 

Singaporeans are actually earning a lot.  But the garmen sucked mostly sucked it all up.  Yeah yeah, we will be told u have a choice, can take MRT(oh faark) but its definitely no where near the Swiss Standard.
