You're in the driver's seat

It doesn't matter what you drive, every vehicle has its own insurance history, and what you pay for auto insurance while driving the best selling compact will be different than what you pay if driving the best selling minivan. That's why you should compare car insurance quotes before you buy your next vehicle. Remember to do this again every year after renewal as well. Car insurance rates frequently change and the insurer who once offered you the best rate, may not be offering you the best rate next time.
