My insurance went down...I traded in a 2003 Mercedes E320 for my GTO and my insurance dropped $60 a month...CrabhartLSX said:I'm wondering what peoples' experiences have been with insuring the GTO. On average, is it cheaper than say, an F-body? or a Mustang? It's a larger car with standard TCS, so it it still considered a "midsize sports car"?
Most premiums are based on age and record of policy holder. The GTO , considering the HP rating, may be a little bit more than a Minivan. But initially its going to depend on amount of claims made in the past and on moving violations you were convicted on.CrabhartLSX said:I'm wondering what peoples' experiences have been with insuring the GTO.

shame on you for considering the Mustang...........LOLfergyflyer said:39yr old male. Went from an 02 C5 Z06 to the GTO. Insurance rose about $30yr. Went to a C6 and it went down $4yr. Got a quote on a 05 Mustang when I was GTO shopping. It was about a $100 every 6 months more.
Holy SH!T! $2,400 for 6 months? Are you friggin nuts? My car payments don't add up to $2400 for 6 months, much less my insurance. OK, so my car payments are a little more. But that is insane. I think I pay like $350 / 6 months... And I have 6 points on my record. I even got the nasty-gram from the state letting me know that I'm on thin ice...Noraku_6.0L said:I payed off insurance with a lump sum of $2400 for 6 months I'm 18 Clean record until I got the GTO.
Question I have to renew my policy soon and I've yet to pay 2 tickets (1 90MPH and the other 160MPH $350 each but no jail time, "US Army Infantryman" so they gave me a break because of my military background) they are about 2 months old and I'll have the funds on the 9th Of this month.
I could fight one in court because the cop said his laser was malfunctioning and he estimated me at 130MPH so technically my speed wasn't properly recorded on the ticket.
So Should I fight them in court or cough up the dough and avoid the headache and take a drivers safety class and pay the ticket? This is my first time getting a ticket so I need some guidance.:willy:
Do you have perfect credit or something? I know they now use your credit score to base your rates.gtoh said:I pay $800 a YEAR for my 05 with Progressive, thats with good coverage, 200 deductables etc. I'm 23, clean record. Don't ask me how but before that I was paying 1200 a year on a 4cyl Toyota Corrolla and 1000 on a 98 Grand Prix GTP. Apparently by the great wisdom of insurance companies they dropped the price $400 bucks going from 128 horsepower to 400! haha go figure but I'm not complaining.
