What used Vauxhall Monaro coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Monaro coupe?

After buying your car, the two biggest financial considerations will be insurance and fuel. All Monaros are in the top group 20 insurance bracket, so getting cover will be costly, and many mainstream insurers will not deal with it, so you may have to look for a specialist company.

After that, fuel economy might not be such a shock, although it's still sub-20mpg in normal driving for all models. Even with the lightest of right feet and a clear motorway, you'll still become very familiar with the petrol filler cap.

What's more, the rear tyres wear quickly, so budget for these every 10,000 miles - or less if you like to use the power all of the time.

That said, it's not all doom and gloom, because the Monaro can be serviced at most Vauxhall dealers, which means reasonable labour rates. And, parts' prices won't break the bank, either.
