We filled out the calculator for an old, small car like a Ford Fiesta with just basic breakdown cover, a low insurance, doing average mileage. It calculated that a car like that would be costing its owner over £3,000 a year to run! And that’s not even counting any parking fines, finance deals or any other ‘extras’. That’s a huge amount of cash that you could be paying out every year.
