Default Hidden cost of GT = Insurance

FYI:

Glad I bought the Turbo-Lite. In talking with my insurance agent he was 'releived' to hear I did not get the GT. Not sure of what the cost difference would be, but he sounded like it would have been big. I am 42 with clean driving record.

More FYI than anything,

Mike

Aye it may be your insurance company mate, in the past that was typically the case because GT usually meant a few extra cylinders and a different driver mindset. Mustangs being a good example.

It's less of an issue with PT's as we're still 4 cyl.

I've also got Geico, 32 y/o, no record, $590/6 mo. it was a little less but adding my hood to the coverage bumped it up 25 bucks.

I'm 38, clean record and had been with State Farm for 20 years. They wanted to add nearly $600 for 6 months full coverage for my 2004 GT. Called Allstate and they cover my 2004 GT, 1996 fifth wheel camper, 1968 Dodge Polara wagon AND 1969 Mustang for $668. I'm at Allstate now.

I'm 61, no moving violations in 16 years since moving to Washington State, have been a USAA member for over 30 years, and paying $406.88 every six-months for full-coverage on my 2004 GT. I also have my home and boat owners insurance with them. If you qualify for USAA insurance coverage by all means go with them. Customer service is outstanding! [^]

I'm older with a major screw up. Had Statefarm and was paying $600/year. After screw up $5000 per year. Went to Progressive, 1st year $1200 now $850. My wife, son, house and the boat are still with State Farm. They have good rates.

Holy ****! Wow BDD, that's one hell of a mark-up. I was with Progressive for a while and had problems with customer service, went to Allstate and again had problems with customer service (three letters, two walk-ins to the local office, 5 phone calls and they still couldn't change my mailing address :/), went back to Geico.

USAA is, by all accounts, a great group to go through as well.

BDD, sorry to hear of the MSU. You must have posted before you saw Gary's post. He must be the oldest on the forum. It must take years to post over 2000 times!! I'll look up my insurance cost later and when I come to [:0] I'll let you know what it is![?]

USAA is okay but I backed into something in my garage and filed a claim. Their total payout to me after deductable was about $700. They immediately raised my rate over $300 a year for the next 3 years. Other than this one "accident", I have had no tickets, accidents, anything in over 25 years. I still can't figure out why I am now such a high risk after one incident. Of course they will not give me any answer other than "well if you had one problem you will probably have another". WTF?!?!
