What's the average cost to service a car?

I want to keep meticulous care of my new car, but I don't know how much to budget. What's the normal cost to service a vehicle?

Answer
It’s smart to come up with a budget for your vehicle as keeping up your car will cost more than just car and insurance payments!
The cost to maintain your car will depend on what needs to be done and the age of your vehicle. Basic maintenance, like an oil change and tire rotation, can start at $100 to $250 a year for a new vehicle.
This amount will go up with every year you own the car as you’ll need to replace some parts to keep things moving. You could end up spending another $1,000 per year, especially if you need to replace the tires or brake pads.
To save money in another way, consider looking for a new car insurance policy. Insurance broker app Jerry can help! After a quick sign-up, Jerry will provide you rates from up to 50 top providers in minutes. The best part? Average Jerry users save $879 per year on car insurance.
