    I'm 22, with one old speeding ticket, and I pay 4000 a year to USAA. If I had another insurance company, it would be more like 8000 a year.

    damn 8000? why? do you have some special discount to pay half of what others charge? I was expecting no more than 4 grand a year.

    I am 26, have no tickets, except (1) for not wearing set belt, my insurance is $1,700 per year (I thought this was high, but after reading your guys stuff I must be on easy street), I have my insurance through NYCM

    New York Central Mutual? That's a damn good price! what part of NY do you live in? Also, do you have a contact for that insurance company?

    I am in Dutchess County (pawling to be exact, a little no name town in the middle of no where). I actually got the insurance through my insurance agent after progressive tried to juice my rates after 9-11 (and that was for a Geo Prizm). I have had them a few years now, and except for one minor fender bender in philly (with the Geo thank god), haven't had any other problems (tickets)

    there website is nycm.com

    Let's focus here guys. Are we talking about New York State or City? If you live in NYC, you will not get $1700 a year insurance. I get $4000 a year insurance from USAA because it is a member owned company, and only available to military and their immediate family. Diesel Clown, if you're 24 now, I suggest that you wait until you're 25 to get a new car. That's the age when insurance costs drop dramatically.

    you also have the option of taking that defensive driving stuff...doesn't drop insurance much, but sometimes any little bit helps...have to agree, the insurance rates in nyc are way higher than the boondocks of ny

    lol, when the terrorist attacks happened, I woke up late so I ended up not being around the neighborhood to have breakfast with my uncle as originally planned. I was going to be the first to enlist but I hurt my back in an accident and ended up with 2 herniated disks that were just reaggravated with another accident involving my friends e46. Anyway, I just got a call from my current insuance carrier and the guy laughed at my Geico rate. He quoted me $4300 for full coverage for the year and when i turn 25 in Feb of 04, he said it can drop to even half that. Can't wait! I'm in Queens, NYC so that explains the cost. My friend living in Virginia with a 2000 rs only pays 1100 for full coverage a year. Now I just gotta get approved for a good loan which is an entirely different hurdle. my fingers are crossed. thanks for all the help guys!

    QUEENS! REPRESENT!

    I can't wait until I'm 25 and get lower insurance costs. Maybe then I'll be able to afford food.

    In Albany, I pay 1300 a year (03 wrx wagon + 89 Prelude). I'm 26 and have had a no fault accident (totalled 98 Lude) back in october and one speeding ticket back in 10/01. not too shabby. 8 grand would make me wanna ride a focking bike. I give you guys/girls MAJOR respect for shellin out that to truck around NYC!
