Some of the most common repairs that mechanics deal with have to do with the brake system. Wear and tear on brake pads is a repair that will happen more then once over the life of your vehicle. It is modestly priced repair. If it turns out it is disc, drum or rotor repair expect a higher bill, probably in the hundreds of dollars. Brake lines rarely need repair unless they are somehow cut.

Oil changes should be done every few thousand miles to keep your car in the best possible running condition. It lengthens the life of the engine and having service records that show frequent oil changes can help the resell value of your vehicle.
Radiator and cooling system flushes fall into this category. These repairs can range from fairly inexpensive to quite expensive depending on what the problem is.
Tire patches or complete replacements are a fairly common issue. A tire can leak or fail for a number reasons. The sidewall can split or it can pick up a nail or other sharp object. Repairs are pretty inexpensive but if the tire needs replacing the cost can go up.
This includes the battery, starter and ignition. Battery repairs or charges are relatively simple. If the battery needs to be replaced there is a wide range of prices. If the starter needs to be repaired or replaced it will be a much more expensive repair.
