So I've been trying to get an idea of what my insurance might cost on a 2010 camaro SS. I did a few quotes on USAA and here is what I found

2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 176.00 a month
2008 Chevrolet Corvette 166.00 a month

I'm 20 years old In the Army. Do you guys think these rates are comparable to what a new camaro would be?

Yes, those would be good to use as a guide, but I'm betting the Camaro may be a tad cheaper. But not sure. And probably not a ton. Shop around with different companies, though. Your age/driving record are two of the major things they look at regardless of what else. Where you live makes a difference too. When I was in Miami, liability alone for my work car was $430 every 6 months. Here in SC, when I moved back, only was about $130 every 6 months for the same car. Of course that was 10 years ago and I'm much older than 20.

Insurance definitely does suck at my age. I'm suprised though that I could insure a corvette for $166 I thought it would be around $250.

I really want to order a 2010 camaro but I'm worried if I do when the information finally hits the insurance companies they are going to tell me its $250 a month. This is driving me crazy

I can't see it being much (if any) more than the challenger.

I just did a quote from State Farm as well. I will have three cars, a house, and insurance policies...My rate was 43 a month putting it at 516 per year (258 every 6 months). :thumbsup:

I initially called them in December and they did not have the Camaro in the system. I asked them to try the Challenger SRT, and they quoted me 89 dollars a month.

I am 39 with a decent driving record. Two drivers in the policy.

The deductibles can really make a difference too.
When I was carrying a loan on my Z28, I still made sure I had as high a collision deductible as they allowed. As soon as I paid off the car loan ( which I admit was only $11K), I dropped collision altogether. I would guess I have $15,000 now that I wouldn't have had if I had been paying collision premiums over the years.
Was it a risk? Definitely. But I figured a simple accident that was my fault would probably top out around $5,000 to repair my Z.
Keep your comprehensive deductible low in case some clown breaks your window or keys the car, but give some thought to collision. I think max deductible with state farm is $2K.

Well this thread just gave me the idea to get a quote real quick from gieco here online...

And I have to say I was surprised. I'm 21, have 1 speeding ticket...
Insuring a 2009 Challenger SRT8, $500 deductibles Full coverage...
$178 a month, $1044.80 six month!

Thats less than I'm paying now for my two cars. I can only hope the Camaro SS is close to that, if it is, I will be waiting and saving for an SS model.

So far, so good...

never really gave a lot of thought to the insurance premium, but the numbers you folks have been getting, sound reasonable

Be glad none of yall live in NJ. A few years back a 24-year-old friend of mine was paying $4800/year (not a typo) for an RSX, all on account of 2 10 over speeding tickets. Why ppl sell drugs when you can sell insurance is beyond me.
