I was shocked to learn yesterday that Aussie cars don't come with maintenance plans. In South Africa, most new cars come with a 100 000km/5 yr maintenance plans, which means you don't have to pay for your car to be serviced.
As such, I now need to rethink my car buying budget to accommodate the cost of getting the car serviced.
Can anyone give me an indication of the kind of car you drive and what you usually pay for services? I know that it all depends on your vehicle type and mileage but any info would help
