The Most And Least Expensive 2013 Vehicles To Insure

Yet most drivers shop for cars without any consideration for insurance costs

“People just don't think about it,” says Michelle Rupp, an independent agent with NRG Insurance in Seattle. She estimates that only about 20 percent of car buyers will research the auto insurance rates of a vehicle before they buy it. “If they're really watching dollars and cents, they need to do that,” she says.

But over her 30 years of experience as an agent, “it gets worse,” laments Rupp. Consumers who diligently research invoice price, fuel efficiency and how to negotiate at a dealership will overlook auto insurance costs.
