Costs of running a car in Australia (Should I call Australia or Malaysia as home?)

The post relating to the costs of running a car in Malaysia is located here.

I only have an experience with running the car as stated below. As such, I will resort to using figures based on that car.

Type of car: Holden Astra 1.8 Manual Transmission

Price of car: AUD12,000 (Second Hand)

Car Registration: AUD700 per year

Insurance: AUD 370 per year  (Third Party Property Fire & Theft according to Budget Direct)

Petrol: AUD200 per month

Servicing: AUD400 per year

Repairs: Set aside AUD2,000 per year for those once in a blue moon repairs.

If there are any figures that you don’t agree with, do share in the comments section below.
