Difficult to compare unless apples to apples. As an example, Collision coverage and the value of the vehicle will have a drastic effect on cost.

My advice is shop around. Insurance rates can vary quite a bit.

SC, 2009 Suzuki Gran Vitara, age 74, including Collision, increased minimums as in not the least amount, $800 per year, Liberty Mutual.

63 and 60. Just switched from The Hartford which was $900 a year for two cars - to Progressive for $303 for 6 months.

After six months one of our infractions (bumper smash) will drop off and it will be cheaper.

The Hartford was good for a few years then they began to creep up. We also had our home insurance with them and left them for a local provider. Much cheaper.

We are in suburban northern Utah.

$58 a month in Colorado through State Farm. Never had a ticket or accident. Just went up $10 a month, my agent told me it's "because of those Denver people".

I am not that terribly interested in the make of the car though it would be nice to know. It's more important to me to know what State they are from.

Mine is abt $ 44 a month...1 car 2013 Beetle. 63 yrs old.

With Nationwide. When I locked in my rate I was quoted $39.00, but they charge me $44 due to some california state taxes????
I also have my home insurance w/them. I still have a shake roof, so I don't know how easy it would be to change.

I think the type of car and your own driving record is far more important than the state you live in. At any rate, ours is $712 per year for 3 old cars 1996 Toyota (liability only) 2002 Honda(full coverage $1000 deductible), 1966 Chevy (liability and theft coverage only) and 2 drivers (57 and 62 y/o) in Tennessee. We've had zero tickets or accidents in over, 10 years.

I have Geico and they never skip a month for me. Anyway, its for a 2008 Mazda Tribute, and I pay $406 every 6 months. It's because of those PHOENIX people.

I have homeowners ins with them too.

I have very high coverage. Exceed the limits. Multiple vehicle discount for 2 cars is about $1200 a year. One very old, 20 years, one new 2013 SUV.
