Top 10 most, and least expensive cars to insure for 2008

Posted In:  insurance  automotive

Each year, Insure.com releases it's list of the top ten most expensive, and the top ten least expensive cars to insure. Insurers use a variety of data to decide on rates for cars, including the overall value, attractiveness to thieves and vandals, popularity with fast drivers, and overall safety.

So, being on the list of most expensive cars to insure doesn't necessarily mean the car is unsafe, but it does mean it will cost you quite a bit.

It's certainly a chance to save a little money when you are picking a vehicle to purchase. You'll notice, for example, a difference of over $200 in insurance costs between two popular makes of full size pickup trucks.

Here's their list for 2008:

Their insurance prices are high and American car manufacturing companies should come up with newer ideas to combat these tiring times.
