The last thread on this topic was in 2007, so I'd just like to get a better idea of what the costs are these days.
I'm a new, inexperienced driver, but would like to purchase a second hand car to use on weekends. Before I jump into it, would love to know what it would roughly cost to purchase, run and maintain a 'starter' car - including all the additional costs; parking, tax, insurance, and maintenance.
Bonus points for recommendations on where to look for a cheap starter car! Grateful for your input.
