Maintenance will depend on the model of the car, in general we always say there is an average of 500$NZD every 10,000km we drive our car or campervan, specially on cars with over 15-20 years age.

Usually these expenses are for tyres replacement (2nd hand), oil change and filter, brake pads and other components that can suffer wear and tear with the time like: alternator / steering belt, power steering rack, suspension bushes..
