Hi All,

I'm looking at making an offer on a 2012 XS auto with 150000km. It has a full service history with the Umhlanga/Pietermaritzburg (kzn) dealers. I'm trying to get a handle on what I can expect the running costs will be.

My current estimates are:
Purchase price: R120k (is this a fair price?)
Fuel: 10L/100km
Maintenance: R1500 per month (Services, break pads, tyres, all wearing parts etc...) = 18k per year / per 20000km
Subaru surprise fund: R15k per year stashed for contingencies (what are the gotchas here). These surprise costs are what I'm most apprehensive about; please share any personal experiences in this regard.
Insurance: ??

Are these numbers realistic.? Any advice/comments are appreciated.
