Just got the insurance renew and found out my insurance on my 02 5 speed has been increased by $200.

With no traffic violation and at-fault accident, I was shocked

Called 21st century insurance, they said our IS300 has been upgraded to "Intermediate Performance" vehicle. Hence the insurance need to be increased. :pissed:

This is not right at all.... Any comments?

I live in the suburb of San Francisco Bay Area. Currently, my comprehensive insurance is $797..... I used to pay $579....

How about you folks?

I live in Stockton, Ca and just purchased my IS 300 (Millineum Silver E-shift with added PLP SFI) two months ago. USAA auto upped my rates by $221 per year. When I aksed the insurance rep why so much she said " well, you just bought a Lexus, what did you expect". :)

Good Topic. Except I'd like to know if you're older than 25 or younger?

The Ins. Co. says it make's a diff. if you're 25yrs or older. "BULLSHIT" Well I'm 25 and I didn't see my Insurance decrease. Cool thing is it didn't go up either. I'm paying $870.00 for a 6 month policy living in Monrovia, California.

Monrovia is in L.A. for those who are in the know.

What do you think? This too much to pay for a six month policy?

You have to be 25 years and older PLUS have 9 years of driving experience. Many people are under the impression that once they turn 25, their insurance should decrease. I too thought this but was told by 3 insurance company that you must be 25 years old and have 9 years driving experience.

Don't, it's the same for every company. The last year I have seen just about every company raising their rates, the most STATE FARM. Even AAA & farmers have gone up.
thanks :D

I 've been driving since I was 16. so when I turned 25, doesn't that make it 9 years?
