Default How much do you pay for insurance?

I'm trying to get an idea of how insurance costs vary with age, car, experience, etc.

Hope it's not as personal as the "how much do you make" question.

A little over $1k a year for a 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora. I'm 26, male and have a clean record. I live in MA though, so our rates are kind of retarded.

Default How much do you pay for insurance?

$500 every 6 months for an 08 CTS AWD. I'm 31, live in the Atlanta area and drive around 12 miles each way to work. I was paying around $800/year for my '04 GTO 6spd when I was 26-30 in a city 30 miles north of Cincinnati. The Cadillac wasn't much more either, but the large number of uninsured motorist (illegals) down here jacks the price up.

I have 500,000 combined, uninsured, $5000 medical, and rental up to $40/day w/$500 deductible.

Right now, full coverage, including dent/dings coverage, 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is $421 every 6months. I'm 24yr old male with a clean record, drive 7 miles to work.

Without the dents/dings coverage it would drop to like $390 every 6 months.

Technically it would be $ 4700 per year for motorcycle, only 6 month riding season. I don't actually pay that though, don't ask me how

For the car it's about $ 1500 per year full coverage, 2001 Lexus ES 300.

I am 24, clean driving record, license since 16.

Almost the same here... $500/mo. for 6 mo. full coverage w/ glass on an 08 X5... I'm 31 and in NY.

In contrast my brother in law who's under 25 was paying $400 for his old Civic, liability only.
