sadly that isnt to far off the mark from what I have been able to
find. but insurance varys so much. I was quoted $350 a month for a
hyundia accent worth $9000, and $180 for a caddy CTS worth $35000. so
to drive the accent it would run about $500 a month, and the caddy
$600. depending on the crime rate, income level, etc, etc of the area
you live it can vary greatly. 3 houses to the left of me starts a new
city border.. if I lived there I would pay another $20 a month... just
for living 1/2 a block over. but call some different places and get
quotes... its a pain, but if "15mins can save you 15% or more " to
quote a popular ad here, its probably worth the time.
