Want to know how much it REALLY cost to drive in Singapore? Here’s my “report” – next time remember to help sponsor a bit, moi not very rich… 🙂
|Initial cost (including loan from bank)||$71,300|
|Minus Loan $40,000 from the bank||($40,000)|
|Installments thus far @ $593/mo||$6,523|
|Total Petrol (1 year, including 3 trips to KL, 1 trip to Cameron Highlands, and daily driving in SG, mixture of Caltex, SPC and Petronas, all at discounted prices)||$1,670|
|Road Tax + Radio Licensing||$930|
|Two servicing (1,000km, 10,000km)||$303|
|Insurance (so happen that a 26 yr old driving a honda is a high risk driver…)||$2,824|
|Scratches, body works||$472|
|Parking (I avoided most of it during my stay in BV and when SCS Bedok was free)||$410|
Grand total of $44,774 in the first year (agak agak la) or actual $ out of your pocket. Haven’t add other things like car wash ($10?), car freshener($10?), waxing and polishing ($100?), ERP ($50?), … basically another few hundred to go.
Still want to buy car now?
Details: About to send for 2nd servicing within the month, figures taken @ 19,080km, OMV still around $18,000, didn’t bid for car plate.
