Camaro insurance?

What's the new Camaro going to do to your rate? I just about keeled over when my agent at Allstate said for both my Mustang and the Camaro it would be $1800 for 6 months. I haven't had so much as a ticket in at least 3 years. Never anything over 10mph ever and no DUI or anything like that. What gives?

Age and vehicle factor most likely. Look at it like this: Like a typical electric bill, you get a base charge, whether you use any electricity or not. But any variance to the base, they charge you more. Car insurance is similar. Mustang and Camaro are not going to be cheap out of the box depending on your age. But if you have ticket or in an area that has a higher accident rate, etc., you'll pay more.

I checked with my agent a few months ago...she couldn't get a quote on a camaro (too early)...but for a '09 GT-500 I was quoted $900/year...so your quote does sound a bit high.

I just turned 21 and when I was 20 they quoted me at 203 a month just for the Camaro. When I turned 21 they moved me to State Farm Mutual which is supposed to be some elite group of customers with good driving records. Ive never had a ticket or anything ever, and Ive been a loyal customer since I was 18. Anyway, when I was 18 I bought an 02 Silverado and I was paying like 206 a month for that. Its gradually gone down since, but I saw a huge jump when I got put on this mutual, Im paying 104 now for the same policy. Full coverage and $500 deductible. But anyway, yeah I don't know what the camaro will be on this mutual deal, Im guessing 180 a month or so? Which I think is a smokin' good deal considering my age.

Beyond the obvious excitement that I will enjoy getting the upcoming news that my order has reached 3800, with my then having the VIN, I can begin shopping for the best insurance coverage for the money. The cheapest is not always the best coverage. I can also begin initial shopping for loan rates, etc.

Past: 1985 Chevy Camaro Z28 and 1996 Chevy Camaro Z28
Still have: 2001 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner
2010 Chevy Camaro 2SS/RS: Ordered 01-13-2009: 2SS/RS M6 in Silver Ice with gray interior.
Born: 05-12-2009 - VIN: 9438 - Delivered to me on 05-29-09.
