inspection 1 is around $250 (done half way between inspection 2's)
inspection 2 around $550 ( you will need this in the next 10-15 thousand miles)
tires $700-$1200 (they only last me 15-18 thousand miles so thats about once a year)
brakes every 2-3 years DIY around $500
oil changes about $30 figure about 3-4 times per year (cheaper if DIY)
probably going to need rear shock mounts stock $30 aftermarket $100 when it starts to make noise.
shocks and struts some time in the next 20-30 thousand miles about $550
allignment $45-$75 supposed to be done around every 6 months but can get away with once a year
radiator flush every 2 years not sur of the price
thats all i can think of off the top of my head hope this helps,
