What cars are inexpensive to insure for a 21-year-old male in California?
Try to stay away from high end sports cars and performance cars.
Honda civics, the Acura line especially the RSX, all mazdas,
Mitsubishi lancer EVO, eclipse, SUVs, are real expensive to insure.
Usually low end (around 120-150 hp) front wheel drive cars are
cheap to insure. Toyota corollas, Chevy cavaliers, Mitsubishi
lancer, ford fusion, are some examples. SHOP AROUND. Take that
thick phonebook you have in your cupboard and tell them the car you
want, give your license number, and they should tell you the
approximate price. Right now I pay 212 a month for my 2007 Toyota
Corolla S, and before that I paid 187 a month for my 2004
Mitsubishi lancer, with a couple accidents on both policies just to
give you an idea.
