Driving an own car, of course, is everyone's dream. Nevertheless, operating a vehicle does surely increase your monthly expense.
So what are these expenses?
To start, car monthly payment, for sure is the most important cost to consider when owning a car. Let's pick a sample car, the country's best sellers for easier approach.
According to the latest Philippines car price list on Philkotse.com, the Toyota Vios 1.3E AT variant is at P 878,000 At 20% DP That leaves us a loanable amount of P 712,400.00. With an average interest PA of 4.4% that adds an additional P 156,728.00 interest on top of that principal, amounting to P 869,128.00 over 60 months or P 14,485.47 per month.
In itself that is a huge dent on your monthly expenses, but investing in a brand new car leaves us big savings on the next category.
All cars, new or old can break down, and thankfully, new cars are under warranty in case anything does break down and all you have to worry about are PMS visits. The first year of such visits for maintenance if you follow brand schedule, for example the Toyota Vios may reach up tp P 9,000.00 in a year.
The average city dweller travels 30 km in a day to and from work, if we include weekend trips to the equation it does round out to be around 900km/month.
Of course, the fuel consumption differs for different car from car brands. But considering based on a standard car, with the average fuel economy is around 10 km/l and current regular gasoline costs P 48.00/l, it allot you around P4,500 per month for fuel.
You would also need to consider parking rates. It's rare for companies to offer their employees free parking so you would have to keep this expense in extreme consideration. Let's say you are an employee of the year and you come to work everyday to pay for your parking fees. The average price for an entire workday would be around P150.00 per day. This amounts to P4,000 per month. Ouch.
You would need to of course register your vehicle with the LTO and have it insured. Good comprehensive insurance can cost you a good P15,000.00 in a year plus registration of around P4,000.00.
There are some dealers who would offer this as the free add-ons to your initial purchase but let's say that you don't have that option. Luckily, with our contact list of car dealers in the Philippines, you can get yourself connected to the nearest dealership
