How much does regular car maintenance cost for a Ford Fiesta?

Will car insurance help cover maintenance costs? It's a 2016 model and I've had the car for about two years. It only has about 50,000 miles, but I'm wondering how much I should expect to pay in maintenance over the next few years.

“Basic maintenance costs vary depending on the type of vehicle and where you live, but for a relatively new Ford, your costs should be average.
Every three to seven thousand miles, you want to:
  • get an oil change (usually costs between $20 and $100 depending on the type of oil you buy)
  • rotate your tires (usually costs between $20 and $50)
Other things you may need to get replaced regularly include:
  • tires
  • windshield wipers
  • air filters
  • brake pads
Your yearly costs will fluctuate depending on the type of work you need done that year, how much you drive, and the cost of materials.
Unfortunately, car insurance doesn’t typically cover the cost of routine repairs.”
