Well I was just watching somethign on the news about that last night. Since insurance companies use the stock market to make money and it hasn't been doign that great, we can pretty much all ( in Ontario anyhow) expect a 30% increase.


That really sucks. I bet you will see more and more people driving around with little to no insurance because of it.

I emailed my broker regarding this gross injustice of insurance coverage. I wonder what shovel full of crap he is going to feed me

Oh well, I suppose its more about insuring the person then it is insuring the vehicle

Wow! I only pay 664.50 a YEAR! And I'm 22! Clean record and a few endorsements help.

The insurance company is just trying to milk you for all your worth before you turn 25.

I'm 25 and pay approx $140 a month for good full coverage of the SSEi and liability on a '81 f-150 4x4. Do some looking around, they're trying to rip you off.

WOW!!! I have to agree. You are being ripped off. I pay around $450 every three months about $150.00 a month for both my wife'* 2002 Hyundai Elantra and my 1996 Pontiac Bonneville and BOTH are full coverage. My wife has 1 accident on her record even and we are both under 25. She'* 23 and I am 22.

I just checked out www.insurancehotline.com, and apparently my lowest possible rate that I can get in Ontario is $2629.67 a year....which is about $100 less....not really worth the switch to another company.

Oh well, I suppose I'll have to take the $227 per month hit and deal with it. I'm not going to stop driving but it wll affect my modification budget for 2003.

Whadda scam....I can't imagine what its goin to be when I get the SSEi, I had better wait until I hit 25, buy my loft, get married.... LOL, that just introduces new expenses
