In AZ if you owe on the car you are required to have Full coverage. If you own the car you can have limited coverage.

Re: Car insurance Question (x-omatic)

Same for WA, so dishing out full coverage can be pretty pricey if you have a bank loan on the vehicle. I havent checked what my insurance will be for an S40 but im hoping it will be cheaper than the quote i got for the STi <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Car insurance Question (ForceFed Motorsports)

It will be WAY cheaper than a quote for the sti...my brother has been looking into getting a subie and the sti insurance would be a ridiculous price compared to a regular subie. I pay $106/mo for complete coverage and I'm 22. Very reasonable in my eyes, especially when all state quoted me at $1300 for 6 months.

Re: Car insurance Question (carreragt7)

I was quoted over 350$ month for the STi lol. I told them to suck it that was more than the car payment. Its in the same bracket as most porsche's.... which in all honesty id rather own anyway <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Car insurance Question (ForceFed Motorsports)

It is usually cheaper if you're not making payments. I was paying $600 - $700 a year to have basic liability on my VW Golf. Why I put my Mini on the policy it jumped to about $2000 a year.

Re: Car insurance Question (MagoonR)

I was just trying to say that a car that you don't have to carry full coverage on is going to be cheaper.

Re: Car insurance Question (ForceFed Motorsports)

Otherwise......no way.
