I thought I’d depress myself by looking at my automotive spending. How do you stack up?
The gas and insurance payments really illustrate how expensive Vancouver is. Keep in mind, we buy our insurance from a mandatory insurer up to $200K after that is optional on the free market.
Gas: $4,692.51 (keep in mind my employer pays for my commute/work gas, it is not included)
Car Insurance: $7837.90 (vomit)
Car Washes: $598.70
Parts for the Fiesta ST: $4,071.23
Labour/Maintenance on the ST: $2,745.85
Truck parts: $969.83
Kia Forte: $2484.54 (financing it)
