It's a very tough question to answer because one person's good rate with one company often can mean very little to the next person (when getting a quote from the same company), even if they have a similar driving record and vehicle. Your best bet is to go online to Compare Car Insurance Quotes & More at Kanetix and get a quote from there. If you have home insurance, you certainly should approach that company first for a rate quote. For what it's worth, I often compare rates and an insurance company called "AXA" often comes up as being the cheapest. Call them or call a broker and inquire.

try Car Insurance - Auto Insurance - TD Insurance

the entire auto insurance in Ontario is a big scam. I will avoid driving.
statistics show the average auto claim in Ontario is 9-10 times of that in Alberta. It is shoddy business.

I don't understand one thing in this whole business. Friend of mine had had a VW Passat 2006 that he sold recently , and then he took Mercedes C300 2013 and his insurance premium just increased by only $20 a month. He lives in Richmond Hill. Why is that ? 2006 car with less luxury was pretty much at the same rate as 2013 luxury ? In Europe the math is simple : The bigger is the engine - the more you paying The newer is the car - the more you paying The sportier is the car - the more you paying Luxury - more paying. How this rule doesn't exist in here ?

it doesn't.
what I heard is that Honda Civic has one of the highest insurance premium among auto insurance companies, for some inexplicable reasons. A Lexus on the other hand, is cheaper to insure.

but maybe it is because there are more Civic than other models?
I don't see why an individual Civic is more prone to stealing than a Lexus. I would simply steal a Lexus

Maybe sex appeal of Civic . Or there is maybe particular category of people driving this car - not sure. On another hand Dodge insurance is not high , although it is triple chance to be stopped by police if you're driving Dodge )))

You steal things you can dispose of easily and quickly. There's tons of civics out there, so there's lots of buyers for both cars and for parts. It's like how you steal money and diamonds, and not antiques and paintings by the old masters (not comparing a civic to a diamond exactly, just an analogy).
