My 2006 C6 Z51 purchased December 2006 costs $1,500 per year to insure. I am the principal driver. This includes all the bells and whistles and a $500 deductible. The Vette is insured ALL YEAR LONG so I can drive it on those warm Winter days. My 2003 Ford Focus Wagon SES with the same riders (plus our 25 year old daughter as a principal) costs $1,800 per year to insure. Now here is the funny part. Bonnie is the principal driver on the 2009 Ford Focus SE (sedan) and it costs $2,050 per year to insure.

Is this nuts or what?

I guess time to ask for an explanation from them or get another insurance agent.
Biz insurance, car insurance or any insurance matter of fact does not make sense?

Check out TD insurance.
Car Insurance Quotes - TD Insurance - TD Canada Trust

They are awesome and will go over all the "little things" with you. Plus you get multi vehicle discounts and i think even more if you insure your home with them. One suggestion.....make sure you get yourself glass coverage. Buddy of mine got a quote to replace his windshield on his C5 and it was about $2400 lol. Definately check them out for coverage though!

Cheers!

Maybe they realize how much less a Corvette is driven than a Ford Focus? Would the majority of the rate be based on liability insurance more than just vehicle value?

It has to do with the accident benefits, I guess Corvette owners are less likely to claim the benefits. My 03 Accord costs 20% more than my 07 Vette, really pisses me off. Both have same drivers.

I pay under $1200/yr on my C6 with full coverage incl glass and $2M liability. I paid $1350 on my 06 Ram full coverage with $1M liability and no glass....lol.

The statistics of a vehicle have a lot to do with it as well! How many are involved in accidents,how many get stolen per year. I switched from a 2007 Civic to a 2006 Mustang GT a few years ago and my insurance dropped 25%. Apparently the Civics are a higher risk according to the insurance world! This always made me wonder based on the fact that you see a Civic on every corner=more on the road=more collision and theft???? Currently I pay 2300/yrly for my three vehicle with full coverage.

I think your home address has a lot to do with the cost as well.

Yes living location has alot to do with it also, when moving some time ago from
Etobicoke to Mississauga my rate went down almost $30 a month.
