Over-taxed motorist an industry myth

SO, Conor Faughnan of the AA claims that it costs an average of €11,817 to run a small car.
Average depreciation is about €2,000, average fuel costs €2,000, tax and insurance €500 to €1,000 and the same for maintenance and repairs.
Allowing €500 for parking, this is €6,000 -- or half the AA's figures.
