Model: S

I took what we pay every 6 months for BOTH vehicles (he has an 07 Tacoma, no violations, he's 25), and divided it out. I'm paying the same a month for insurance under his policy, as I was for my 01 Hyundai Sonata on my own.

Zero violations, S, 140 a month... (single 25 yr old male)...

That being said, I'm paying $20 a month more than I was for my 07 CX-7 (255 hp Turbocharged) with a MV of 19,800 when I sold it... I'm baffled at why this little car costs MORE than the expensive stupid quick SUV?

all brand new cars cost a little more than older models especially if you did not pay the car in full. imagine damaging a door in a collision or any part of the vehicle. the parts would have to be ordered from the factory considering that there are still no surplus parts in junkyards. compared to a 1990 honda accord door that you can get for $50 per door in a junkyard. i hope it makes sense.

Yes, it makes sense if you're talking a 90 accord. But when your trading in a car which is still less than 2 years old (and was an increase bc it was a new car in the first place) and never had a price drop, it just seems like insurance companies decide each year model that prices go up, and never fall back down... also parts on a car made 95% in Japan were still harder to find than new rolla parts should be? furthermore, if your logic is true, should I expect my insurance rate to drop once the parts for the 09 are more readily available?

When we traded in our 01 Ram w/ diesel truck for our new 07' Corolla last summer our overall ins. dropped $5 per month.

My God man that is more than your monthly car payment! I hope anyway.

also all this is obviously going to depend on how much coverage you are buying?

i.e. a $500 deductable costs more than a 2k deductable, gap insurance, etc... so its going to be hard to get an apples to apples comparison. you can try somehting like progressive.com and see what your rates look like there?

ya i'm leaving my current insurance company. I found another company that will offer me $206 per month.

NEVER USE WAWANESA if you are in Ontario... or ANYWHERE. They will rob you.

In BC, you are REQUIRED to have insurance with ICBC at the very least -_-

Seems like Corolla drivers pay more for insurance than our Sienna :P
