Do yourself a favor if you can and want to save some cash. Pick up a second car and make sure it's paid for and only liability. You can be rated as 21-25 on the older vehicle (assuming you're older than 21 younger than 25) - that saves you the bundle of cash. Then they rate you over 25 on the WRX.
If it's done correctly - yes two cars can be cheaper than just the one new one. Believe it or not.
All my vehicles listed below run me $185 monthly for insurance.
I do not have a perfect record. In fact - had my license revoked for speeding (6 mos), been in 2 accidents (one my fault), and have 2 speeding tickets (1 cost me license).
'02 Subaru WRX stock ~227hp
'94 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 modified ~275hp
'88 Benz 190E 2.3 stock ~136hp
Erik is right. We have an Elantra 98. As soon as we got the WRX, we got a deal. And the WRX is cheaper than the Elantra! The insurance people over the phone were going by the size of the engine and how many cylinders. I don't know for how long this will last...
I havnt called state farm yet to check, but from the posts it sounds like my insurance may drop when I get my WRX. My insurace is very high right now- Single male under 21, considered to be living in a city area, and driving a Celica Convertible. I pay something like 240 a month- insane I know! I have an absolutely perfect driving record too! I think the "sports car" and the convertible really drive the price up. I heard that the WRX is just listed as an RS, so they dont think it is sporty or fast. Plus I guess all the safety and all-wheel drive saves money.
Anyone experience a drop in insurance when the wrx?
