Let me start by saying I have no affiliation or affinity for any particular insurance carrier. I'm posting my story to help others in the community to hopefully save some cash on their car insurance. I'd been with Progressive for 4 years - no accidents, tickets or claims in over 5 years. Over 28 years old and a married homeowner. Vehicle is quoted at 10K annual mileage for pleasure driving. I get the good discounts. Before purchasing the C2 I called progressive to get a quote on the insurance. I gave her the VIN, Progressive came back and said the 6 month premium would be about $90 less than I pay for our Audi Q5 currently ensured through Progressive. So I buy the car, call in to get insurance, and sure enough the C2, a car that costs less than half of the Q5, would cost about $360 MORE per 6 months. I was.... upset. And when you get upset... you call other insurance companies (Ã la the DTV commercial). Each of the quotes below includes a dodge farm truck, accounts for anywhere from $50-$100 into each total 1st offer. - Progressive - ~920/6mo with 10k/20k/10k liability and no insurance against uninsured motorists. 2nd offer. - Travelers - ~760/6mo with 10k/20k/10k liability and no insurance against uninsured motorists. 3rd offer - 21st century - ~1680/6mowith 10k/20k/10k liability and no insurance against uninsured motorists. 4th offer :rockon: Geico :rockon: $324/6mo with 10k/20k/10k liability and no insurance against uninsured motorists. 5th offer :rockon: Geico :rockon: $542/6mo with 100k/300k/100k liability and 50k insurance against uninsured motorists. Went with option 5. They say it's a guaranteed rate that will only change in the event of tickets etc but we'll see. Of note - this is important - none of these companies had a Priuc C in their computer systems yet. It seems like Travelers and Geico are the only two who took time to research and add the car so I got proper hybrid discounts, but who knows for sure. Here's my point - if you're paying more for insurance than you expected, it may be because your insurance carrier doesn't have your vehicle classified correctly or they don't give hybrid discounts. Shop around; I saved about $400/6mo with Geico and receive a MUCH higher level of coverage for the money than was offered elsewhere.
