When figuring how much you’ll need to save, there are a few things to consider aside from just the initial purchase price (make sure you find out exactly what’s included).
Don’t forget ongoing costs such as vehicle registration, car insurance, servicing and mechanical repairs, roadside assistance, petrol and even motorway toll costs. These costs will vary between cars. Foreign designed cars may require imported parts or specialty servicing, which may be costly. Also keep in mind insurance premiums on cars will differ depending on your personal circumstances.
