I have been living in Utrecht for 18 months and scrolling through this list all the prices look spot on with reality.
#Bingo on Jan 18, 2018 :
I live in utrecht since 5 years. This prices are more high nowadays.
#Anonymous on May 26, 2017 :
So a family of two the salary of 2300 Euros should be sufficient
#Regina on Apr 05, 2016 :
Oh and you have to pay something called "wegenbelasting" to pay for the usage of the roads. A car of 800 kg with low emission will cost you about 19 euros a month. You also need insurance. A new car, all risk insurance, with a few years of no damage on your record will set you back about 50-60 euros a month for a car worth about 10k.

@Chris, I'm not sure if people pay in monthly instalments that much in the Netherlands. Advertisements here say "Pay half now, pay half in 3 years" sometimes, so they expect people to actually save up for the car or lend the money from someone else. If you want to pay monthly, leasing a car is an option as well. Just search for "auto leasen nederland" to find some options.
#Chris on Sep 05, 2015 :
May i know how much is the actual cost of owning a car in netherlands?
i've been seaching google but i cant find the answer i need.

for example: if i buy a used car worth 10,000 Euro.
How much will be the monthly payments assuming i pay the minimum down payment.
How much is the insurance?
Other fees associated with buying and owing the car.

Thanks.

Prices for Internet cannot really be compared. The Netherlands (and I guess most of Europe) has a competetive market where prices are relatively low and speeds very high. SO in the Netherlads there is actuelly no longer ANY provider that offers less than 10MB
